A lot of people ask me why we bothered to build VIVAHR.
It’s a fair question. There are plenty of options out there for talent management and recruiting software.
But the problem was that none of the options truly focused on helping small businesses compete for talent against the big guys.
While building my small business I was frustrated with the limited hiring options but did not have the budget to spend $50k per year for high-end applicant tracking. After seeing many other small businesses relying on spreadsheets and Outlook folders to track candidates, there had to be a better option.
So I looked for a better solution.
Unfortunately, what I found was that the applicant tracking software on the market was way more than our small business needed.
Packed with features that I’d never use, the ATS tools I tried were all cluttered and overwhelming. The worst part was pricing reflected features 99% of small business owners don’t need.
I knew we could make a difference.
That’s why I started VIVAHR.
VIVAHR is a simple tool for growing a small business by helping attract more candidates to each job listing without having to sponsor every post. We build the first Culture Marketing™ software to show job seekers there’s more to a job than just roles and responsibilities in every job description template.
Simply put, VIVAHR offers No clutter. No complexity. No extra features to confuse and overwhelm you.
I’m proud to say that VIVAHR is the product that I wish existed back when I was looking to grow my first small business. I am truly passionate about helping small businesses hire better candidates.
No longer should a small business owner feel hostage to bad employees.
And if, for any reason, you don’t think that VIVAHR is the best way for your small business to attract and hire your next hire — if it doesn’t save you time and money — then you won’t pay a penny.
