A person joins a new job. The so-called ‘honeymoon period’ gets over and a question stares in the face. Money is fine at its place, but you will not be fully satisfied if you are not happy with the job. Can we search happiness with keywords like, let us say job satisfaction, office ambiance, less travel or a nice team? Is our happiness associated with these things or are they peripheral to our happiness? One works in a system to either fit in or stand out. All of us try our level best. Yet, as per our research, only 40% of professionals are happy in their new job.

80% People are not happy with the job!

According to TimesJob Survey 8 in 10 employees are not happy with the job. Most of the job descriptions received by the candidates these days are lookalikes. Organization often fail to answer what is one supposed to really do in the job and how well his/her skills are going to be utilized. Hiring decision mostly happens without this picture. Some parameter are considered to justify their decision as logical, in their own eyes. Resultant, the candidate is left to the options, ‘hop around, hang around, work around or just, stick around.’ It not only affects productivity, company’s perception of the candidate but also the candidate’s happiness.

Happiness in a job is associated with the productivity of the candidate and the perception of the company. So, the crux of the matter is ‘alignment’.

Two questions are of utmost importance:

“Whether a candidate is likely to do what he/she is cut out to do?”
“Whether the candidate and recruiter can know about it, beforehand?”

So, can the elusive Work-Life Balance ever be found?

Now, the answer is ‘YES’. LitmusBlox is here to address the issue by going beyond the generic JDs and generic CVs.

Our patent pending AI-powered capability ranking engine allows recruiters to define the capabilities (key skills) that you want a candidate to be evaluated on from more than 3500 data points across various jobs.

Based on the capabilities defined, candidates are asked (via Chatbot) to specify the capabilities and the level of complexities within a capability handled. Our system takes this input and creates a candidate’s capability profile (called LitmusProfile) to give a clear picture of alignment between the requirement of a job and candidate’s abilities.

Now with LitmusBlox, companies can get to know the true fitment of the candidate and match you to a job they deserve. We know, for you as a candidate, 15-20% productivity rise and 40% lesser stress 🙂

The future of candidate matchmaking is happening right here at LitmusBlox. Be on the lookout for an invitation from employers to create your Litmus Profile.
