Big data is being used in a number of ways, which now includes aiding internal hiring practices. French startup Clustree automatically finds the right person internally for the best fitting position within the company. This is great not just for employees who feel stuck in their current role, but for human resources and hiring managers who want to look internally for the ideal candidate for the job.
Described as a "SaaS platform for talent management" by founder and CEO Bénédicte de Raphélis Soissan, Clustree looks at career paths and creates charts of people going from job to job. They then calculate the probability and offer suggestions. The talent management and internal hiring system also helps break conventional career trajectories and can even help HR departments create new positions all together in addition to recruiting.
