The Purpose of CiviHR Recruitment
To me, the effort put in to build any system is worthwhile when it allows organizations to deliver better experiences all around. The CiviHR Recruitment function aims to deliver just that by:
- enhancing the experience of candidates who interact with non-profits for jobs, and
- simplifying life for recruiters by cutting down paperwork and data entry, making it easy to find and review candidates, and providing ways to communicate effortlessly with all candidates

Before we set out to write what we want the recruitment function to do, it seems worthwhile to understand the expectations of the consumers of this technology. In other words, what is it...Read more

Farm Africa - www.farmafrica.org - provides the tools and expertise to enable smallholders in eastern Africa to increase their harvests.

Farm Africa has annual revenue of $15 million, and employs 250 staff across 6 countries. Up to now each country office has kept its own HR records in Excel.

Zing is planning the development of an HR Application that would have similar functionality to those already in use by small and medium size companies and charities.
The first phase of the design and development would be conducted in collaboration with the Civi Core Team with the intention of producing a new Civi module called CiviHR. The second phase of the project would take CiviHR, and make it available for use by charities as Software as a Service (Zing SaaS).
The hosted model of Zing SaaS, along with an application design...Read more
