Jobable launches Human Capital Analytics giving HR and job seekers a greater competitive edge through data visualization




Hong Kong, China, December 18, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - First in Asia: innovative approach utilizes advanced technologies including machine learning, predictive modelling, and big data analysis

Hong Kong, Thursday, 18 December 2017, Jobable, Asia’s most advanced career platform with over a million users, has launched Human Capital Analytics; a data visualization solution giving HR professionals vital talent insights, and job seekers a greater opportunity to identify their best career opportunities.

With the ability to visualize high volumes of data in an easy-to-read, interactive interface, HR professionals can quickly determine and identify trends across the whole employment market. The initial data set, launched today, shows the output for twenty of Hong Kong’s largest employers with more to come in 2018. (https://labs.jobable.com).

Developed by Jobable Labs over a two year period using proprietary tools, Human Capital Analytics incorporates machine learning, predictive modelling and big data analysis, putting vast amounts of employment data to work.

“The aim of Human Capital Analytics is to help companies formulate strategies around talent acquisition and retention. Asia’s HR professionals can now have an instant understanding of their main competitors for talent, workforce comparisons, skills and competencies, and much more,” said Richard Hanson, Chief Executive Officer, Jobable.

Human Capital Analytics is available free with paid-for options depending on the insights required. The free option provides an opportunity to pick a large employer in Hong Kong (HSBC, Cathay Pacific, Huawei and others) to see the talent movements and skill distributions for that company.

Under the paid-for option, corporations can access more information and have the opportunity to overlay their own data to gain deeper insights through a more holistic, data-backed approach. Companies then can gain a better understanding in areas such as gender imbalances, skill gaps, succession planning, compliance and regulatory challenges in their workforce.

“A key tenet of Jobable is using data science to help job seekers simplify their search for employment. Human Capital Analytics is an extension of this belief and unique in the online job market today. Job seekers gain free actionable insights, allowing them to quickly identify new career opportunities in other organizations, or better navigate their way through their existing company,” added Hanson.

Founded in 2014, Jobable is a Hong Kong startup success story. The company has raised close to US$3 million in venture funding with their most recent round led by Asian-based investors including Welight Capital, a firm founded by former Tencent executives, and Garage Capital. Having established a strong job seeker base in Hong Kong, Jobable is now looking to cement its position as the main innovator within Asia’s human resources technology and analytics space.

Another First: Gamification to assist job-seekers
Another example of giving job seekers assistance, Jobable has created ‘CV Fighter’; a simple, engaging game to help people check if they have the skills necessary to compete for the job position they want. Unlike other job boards who screen out job applications based on keywords, CV Fighter is a live battle between jobseeker and robot.
Job seekers are told which of their skills are currently seeing high demand from employers and suggests other skills to the jobseeker should they wish to ‘upskill’ themselves to further enhance their employment prospects.
"It's all about handing the data back to the job seeker and letting them use it to prepare themselves and make more informed decisions. Using a game we can inform, educate and set expectations in a fun and engaging way that resonates with the younger work force, especially university graduates," said Luke Byrne, Jobable’s Chief Operating Officer.

About Jobable
Headquartered in Hong Kong, Jobable (www.jobable.com) is Asia’s first data driven career platform. Over 1.5 million job seekers and corporate users have been served since Jobable launched in March 2016, with close to 200,000 job applications processed for over 2,000 employers. Jobable’s ‘special sauce’ is their machine learning recommendation engine that examines hundreds of data points to efficiently connect job seekers to the best opportunities and companies to the best talent. The company also operates in the Philippines and Singapore.

Fujitsu Hong Kong Appointed as Stamford American School’s ICT Solutions Provider




Hong Kong, China, December 13, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Fujitsu Hong Kong Limited today announced that it has been appointed by Stamford American School as its Information and Communications Technology (ICT) partner. Fujitsu will provide Stamford American School with an end-to-end ICT solution, encompassing consultancy, project management and system integration, to build state-of-the-art network and infrastructure of the new Stamford American School campus in Hong Kong, and pave the way for the digital learning journey.

As Stamford American School’s ICT partner, Fujitsu will provide infrastructure systems including PRIMERGY servers, ESPRIMO desktops, network equipment, security and AV infrastructure. Together with these high-performance and compatible equipment, a customized integration of infrastructure enhances the overall effectiveness of entire network. Fujitsu will also offer one-stop-shop project management services from consultancy, site assessment, implementation to ongoing support and onsite managed services.

Digitalization is driving the education sector towards a deep transformation, but many schools, colleges and universities are struggling to keep pace with this change, according to “The Road to Digital Learning”1, a new report from Fujitsu. Fujitsu Hong Kong understands the importance of creating a digital future for education, while Stamford American School shares the same aspiration of transforming education to provide students with the tools and skills to succeed in a predominantly digital world.

“Fujitsu Hong Kong is honored to be selected by Stamford American School as their technology partner to provide the end-to-end ICT solution. As a regional education hub with leading innovations, Hong Kong is the ideal place for international schools to build their campus. Fujitsu Hong Kong aspires to support and serve this elite education sector in the transformation journey through a co-creation approach,” said Leo Ng, General Manager, Sales Marketing, Fujitsu Hong Kong.

Stamford American School, a world-class international school for students five to 18 of age instills an enthusiasm for lifelong learning along with the necessary skills to prepare students for the challenges and changes throughout their life. As a school that places a strong emphasis on digital literacy, innovation and STEM education, Stamford American School wanted to introduce computing capability to develop a progressive learning environment for students. Following an evaluation process and assessment, the school appointed Fujitsu as the ICT solutions provider.

“As a new school in Hong Kong and with a sister school in Singapore, we strive to provide a secured and advanced educational experience for all of our students. A strong support for state-of-the-art ICT infrastructure and services is crucial. We selected Fujitsu as our ICT service provider as they showed their expertise and proactive management. They fully understand our needs with out-of-the-box thinking and are flexible with allocating resources to tackle the complex project,” said Marlon Arenas, Head of Information Communication and Technology, Stamford American School.

Fujitsu and Stamford American School share the same vision and anticipate to use leading technology to shape a better future for students. The right connection, a secure network and simple, robust devices are the three elements that make up the foundation of digital learning. “The Road to Digital Learning” report reveals that 94% of establishments with leadership teams in Hong Kong are focused on digital learning, with 90% of respondents invested in wireless network, 82% in 2-in-1 devices/notebooks and 79% in tablet devices. These findings show that digital learning is becoming more critical in Hong Kong, with a focus on connectivity, devices as well as security.

However, 66% of respondents are concerned about limited IT resources and less than half of the students or teachers are “excellent” or “good” in terms of digital literacy. Therefore, Fujitsu Hong Kong strives to narrow the gap between the ambitions of education establishments striving for digital transformation, and the reality of today’s classroom learning.

“Digital technology brings so many opportunities to education. At Fujitsu, we strongly believe that if we want to prepare our children for the digital future, we have to improve digital literacy in the school, with ongoing collaboration between the technology and education sectors,” said Mr. Ng.
