Recruitment System Replacement Project
The Division of Personnel and Labor Relations is excited to announce improvements are on the horizon for the State of Alaska’s recruitment system. Workplace Alaska has given us the ability to have an on-line recruiting system which has been a great tool for hiring managers and applicants. However, Workplace Alaska is currently a “home” built product, built on Lotus Notes. Lotus Notes is outdated technology and we are struggling to maintain a user friendly, responsive environment.
The most practical solution for the State of Alaska was to purchase a Software-as-a-Service recruitment system to meet our recruitment needs. This means we are purchasing a service from a company and they own and maintain the software. CGI, in partnership with NEOGOV, was the successful contractor at the conclusion of our procurement process. NEOGOV is well known in the Human Resource industry and is considered an industry leader in HR systems with a focus on public sector products.
