Scaling a business takes time, requires the right team members, and can come at great costs. However, one Washington DC based startup is looking to change that with their expert calling network (ECN). Brainsy, backed by Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt, is a platform that allows anyone with a certain skill set and expertise to easily connect with those seeking information and advice.
This week while at the HR Tech Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas, the team announced a new channel focusing specifically on speaking with HR professionals.
“Great employees are a company’s most valuable asset. Attracting, developing, training, and incentivizing those assets, requires deep knowledge of processes and technology,” stated Christie, CEO of Brainsy, Inc. “Through the HR Tech and Talent ECN, those seeking human resource expertise can buy incremental pieces of valuable advice or can immediately assess the fit of an individual expert for a longer term consulting arrangement.”
In a time when startups grow and businesses need to bring on people with advanced technical backgrounds, traditional hiring processes might not be the solution. This is especially true for hiring managers who know they need a certain skill set, but don’t have a clear way of testing their experience and knowledge.
“The HR Tech and Talent ECN promises to be an effective way for consultants to showcase their domain expertise,” stated Mark Hamdan, an Expert HR Tech and Talent Strategist & Moderator. “As a former CEO of a talent management solution provider, I was always working with companies that not only needed the right software but also the expertise to put in place the right process. The ability to find and screen experts wherever they are is why Expert Calling Networks are the wave of the future.”
Of the experts on the network, the minimum qualifications start at having at least 10 years of experience. Pricing is also set by the expert, so prices will vary based on skill set, experience, and niche. Calls on the ECN have a minimum of 15 minutes, but also do not need to go through the platform after the initial connection is made.
Earlier this year Brainsy changed their name from Fanaticall with a focus on expanding their mission. The company plans to release more channels focused on bringing more experts to their network and platform.
