Talent Rover Foundation Donates Recruitment Solution to Hire Our Heroes, a Non-Profit Career Service for Military Veterans

In commitment to Salesforce’s 1/1/1 philanthropy model, Talent Rover Foundation provides HOH’s volunteer team with a cutting edge recruitment solution.

Talent Rover, provider of cloud-based software built for managing the entire staffing and recruitment workflow, announced that the Talent Rover Foundation is sponsoring Hire Our Heroes (HOH), a non-profit that provides career advice and job transition assistance for U.S. military veterans. As part of the sponsorship, the Talent Rover Foundation will donate the company’s recruitment solution to HOH.

Founded in 2013 by Dan Caporale, a Marine Corps veteran, Hire Our Heroes mentors veterans through the transition from a military to civilian career. The organization provides workshops and one-on-one assistance in job searching, resume building, interview preparation, networking and other key skills. Through a veteran’s job board and a network of corporate partners, HOH aims to match veterans with full-time employers that value their skills and track record of service. In 2014, HOH provided one-on-one service to more than 2,300 veterans.

Managing the pipeline and workflow of this free, high demand service had been a significant challenge for Caporale and his team of volunteers. At Dreamforce 2014, Salesforce’s annual user conference, Caporale searched for a new recruitment solution that could simplify this process. His software at the time was creating more problems and inefficiencies than it solved, and Caporale wanted to run his organization from one, consolidated cloud platform. HOH was already using Salesforce to manage donor relations, and Dan hoped to find a recruitment solution that ran on Salesforce too.

“The fact that Talent Rover was built on the Salesforce Platform was a game changer,” said Caporale. “It was the only recruitment solution that could allow us to capture and pull all of our moving parts into one system. We’re a small team aiming to serve over 1 million unemployed veterans and another 1 million who will separate from the armed forces in the next five years. Our task is immense, and Talent Rover ties it all together for us.”

In commitment to Salesforce’s 1/1/1 philanthropy model, the Talent Rover Foundation has donated the recruitment solution to Hire Our Heroes. The 1/1/1 pledge commits Talent Rover to donating one percent of employee time, one percent of profits and one percent of product to charitable causes. As the company’s philanthropic wing, the Talent Rover Foundation carries out this pledge.

“Hire Our Heroes is an extraordinary organization that uses the tools and techniques of recruiters to transform veterans’ lives,” said Brandon Metcalf, COO of Talent Rover. “Similar to the way Talent Rover was built by recruiters for recruiters, Hire Our Heroes was founded by veterans for veterans. They recognized a huge struggle within the veteran community, and they are taking action to address it. We’re inspired by their mission and grateful for the chance to support it.”

Hire Our Heroes is a winner of the 2014 We Serve Award for excellence in the holistic healing of body, mind and spirit of veterans and military family members. In 2014, Hire Our Heroes was also honored with a Top-Rated Award from GreatNonprofits.org based on the large number of positive reviews that the organization received from volunteers, donors and clients.
