In this guest blog post, Sonia Varkey, Director of Marketing at Plum, shares more details on our newest partner integration. Plum is an online, evidence based, matching solution. They use cutting edge behavioral science and predictive analytics to instantly match applicants with the right behaviors and intelligence needed for unique roles and company culture.


You want to hire the best people for your company, and with the Plum & Greenhouse integration you can now easily find the best fit from your applicant pool, based on your specific needs, every time.

Too often candidates come into a job and later find out that they're not the right fit. In a recent study of 20,000 new hires, half had failed to perform in the first 18 months. Of those that failed, 89% were due to attitude, not skill. Yet, the entire hiring process is focused on identifying candidates that lack the necessary skill. Plum provides a solution to this problem.

Research shows that rather than focusing on resumes and interviews, measuring for problem solving ability, social effectiveness, and personality is over 5x more accurate at predicting future success., a cloud based software platform that seamlessly integrates with Greenhouse, employs cutting edge behavioral science plus premium predictive analytics to identify applicants with the highest potential for future success.
