Hitch Works, Inc. officially launches today, and we would like to officially introduce ourselves.
We feel like a little good news could go a long way for everyone right now!
Between the recent wild weather events and the ongoing demands of the pandemic, we’re ready to launch Hitch Works Inc., (hitch.works) and we’re ready to answer your questions and start building more productive enterprises in the most challenging of times. At Hitch, we think differently and we believe that perilous times are also a time of great creativity, unbounded innovation, and endless possibilities. So today, we’re launching our startup – say hello to Hitch!
Hitch is your go-to platform to accelerate productivity and performance with your existing talent. Our platform creates an internal talent marketplace that provides complete visibility into your organization’s internal workforce’s skills and passions and matches them with its full-tie and project-based “gigs,” so that mission-critical work can be resourced from within.
We like to say Hitch was “built by the enterprise for the enterprise” to accelerate productivity and performance. Hitch is a cloud-based Talent Opportunity and Mobility SaaS platform that does just that.
We’re all about solutions:
No other talent opportunity and mobility solution has the completeness of vision that Hitch brings to the market with state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and machine learning. Built by practitioners with a deep bench expertise, Hitch gives leaders the visibility to see, plan, and build core talent capabilities, increase diversity and inclusion, and provide the tools to implement workforce productivity.
We’re young, but we don’t lack experience:
Road-tested for more than three years with large enterprises, Hitch already has a proven track record of transforming organizations at scale with several global customers, including Allianz Global Investors, Dolby Laboratories, and HERE Technologies just to name a few. Our customers come first at Hitch and we believe in a collaborative approach that encourages creativity across departments and builds momentum that makes people want to join in and be a part of the solution.
“One of the many things I love about Hitch is the transparency – everybody can see every work opportunity, which was not visible before Hitch,” said George Hudgens, VP of People and Work Innovation at Dolby Laboratories. “Workforce planning was a major initiative at Dolby and, Hitch successfully helped catalog our talent and increase career opportunity awareness while improving project transparency across departments, divisions, and continents.”
Talent is a race we help you win:
Organizations are in a race to acquire talent. Rather than hiring from the outside, Hitch helps companies find the right talent from inside the company and enables large enterprises to rapidly develop and leverage existing talent, creating a new agile, competitive advantage. For many companies, locating skills across a dispersed enterprise also triggers a time-intensive and costly recruiting process. Instead, Hitch provides visibility into an organization’s available internal skills supply and helps find the right talent at the desired location needed to fulfill project-based work demands. In an era of rapidly evolving business environments, digital transformation, and competitive threats, Hitch enables creating a talent supply chain that supports greater business agility and helps drive higher productivity and capacity.
“Hitch is an AI-based talent mobility solution with an experienced management team,” said Josh Bersin, global industry analyst. “The founder of Hitch has successfully implemented the agile model of talent mobility and has a deep understanding of its benefits and applications.”
On Wednesday, September 16, join Josh Bersin and Hitch CEO, Kelley Steven-Waiss, for a virtual webinar, “Rethink Talent Mobility: Designing Talent Operating Models for the New Era”. They will share and discuss the next-generation talent opportunity and operating models with leaders from HERE Technologies. To register for the webinar, please visit here.
