AUSTIN, TX: PeopleAdmin, a provider of talent management solutions particularly for higher education, K-12 and government, recently declared that it has adopted TeacherMatch, a research-based K-12 talent management solution provider, to provide the industry’s comprehensive talent management platform and analytical solution for developing, hiring, and identifying educators most effective at aiming student achievement.

The collaboration between the two companies will be operated under the name of PeopleAdmin. They help to solve a range of talent management and human resource issues, starting with employing high-quality teachers who are most likely to ameliorate academic consequences.

TeacherMatch offers cloud-based screening, recruitment, workforce planning, and professional development solutions for K-12 school districts, and offers the research-based, data-driven, and analytically predictive teacher assessment tool, known as the Educators Professional Inventory (EPI). EPI tool helps in predicting teacher candidates, who are most likely to drive home academic growth for their students.

Kermit Randa, CEO, PeopleAdmin says that with far-reaching significances for bringing greater value to his customers and improving the caliber of education in North America, it is now the perfect timing for partnering with TeacherMatch. “The real challenge for organizations is integrating today’s talent management technology with a focus on business outcomes—introducing new, data-driven processes to hire, manage, engage, and truly support people,” adds Randa. Paying attention to the data around the aptitude and proficiency of instructional team will improve students’ outcomes, and change longstanding practices that could be holding schools back.

To the partnership, TeacherMatch brings additional tools include: Professional Development Profile (PDP), K-12 Professional Development Management System, Instructional Proficiency Inventory (IPI), and SmartFind. PDP identifies teachers’ strengths and growth opportunities along with a customized PD plan. K-12 Professional Development Management System automates every aspect of PD management for administrators and educators. IPI—a PD diagnostic tool—incorporates predictive analytics to target and differentiate professional learning. SmartFind delivers data intelligence to PeopleAdmin’s solutions and integrate with the TalentEd and SearchSoft applicant tracking solutions seamlessly to bring immediate value to customers, particularly to districts and schools experiencing teacher placement issues.
