Charleston, SC (PRWEB) June 20, 2012 - SPARC, a Best Place to Work winner, announced it will release two new commercial software products at the SHRM 2012 Annual Conference & Expo. As part of SPARC's "Get 'em in and keep 'em in" strategy, SPARCIN and SPARC'D offer human resource professionals and business leaders solutions to two of their biggest problems: hiring the right people and keeping employees engaged. Both products will be launched on June 23 at the start of SHRM, and the SPARC team will be at booth #3042 giving demonstrations.

SPARCIN is a first-of-its-kind Interview Management System (IMS) that improves all aspects of the interviewing process, allowing companies to get the right people "in" the door. SPARCIN builds interviews for candidates using the best public crowdsourced, topic-specific questions, and your private questions. Additionally, SPARCIN includes features to easily collect feedback and track the history of candidate interviews. For the first time ever, organizations will be able to give better interviews and have more insight into candidates, leading to better hires.

"What goes into building great companies is hiring the 'right' people. Finding the right people is a top level objective at almost all companies, including ours, yet there wasn't a tool that improved the interview process. That's why we created SPARCIN: to help ourselves build a better company. Now we'd like to see other companies achieve similar improvements in their hiring," said Lee-Anne Scalley, SPARC's Director of Talent Acquisition PHR.

SPARC'D is an Employee Engagement Platform (EEP) comprised of multiple micro applications geared towards building a better company culture and engaging employees. It takes leadership to foster a great culture and make employee engagement a priority, but software can be the tool that makes those changes really stick, and provide the continuous improvement business leaders are desperately looking for.

"Find the right people, create a great culture, and focus on people's happiness and they become engaged! Engaged with each other, and engaged with the organization. That's when a thriving corporate culture produces a stage 5 company, with world-changing results for customers and stakeholders alike," said John Smith, SPARC's CTO and Chief Evangelist.

To "Keep 'em in", SPARC'D engages employees through a suite of applications that includes an enterprise version of SPARCET, the employee recognition app. Engagement starts with recognition, which SPARCET delivers in a creative, collaborative, and visible way. Apps involving corporate culture, customer engagement, and knowing coworkers will be part of the SPARC'D suite.
