Staffing Solutions Secures Reseller Rights to Game-Changing Interview Tool

[October 28, 2019 - Cleveland, OH] Staffing Solutions Enterprises (SSE) is excited to announce a new partnership with InterviewPath. SSE will be the exclusive authorized reseller in Ohio for InterviewPath’s cloud-based software, which generates custom interview guides. This quick, affordable, and easy-to-use solution helps strengthen and standardize the interviewing/selection process while improving the candidate experience and minimizing legal risk.

“When I sat down with InterviewPath’s founder and owner, Ron Bower, I was immediately impressed with the simple functionality and use of InterviewPath,” said Blake Babcock, SSE’s Director of Client Engagement. “Most importantly, it [InterviewPath] has the power to solve a problem I see every day – the amount of preparation time to prepare for an interview, which most of us don’t have. Hiring managers often end up ‘winging it,’ relying on their experience to ‘read people’, or even Googling the latest and greatest interview questions.  This can lead to ineffective interviews and unpleasant candidate experiences.  InterviewPath solves that problem by generating effective, behavioral-based custom interview guides in minutes.”

InterviewPath was released in 2017 and is being widely used by clients across multiple industries. SSE has acquired the rights to market this tool in Ohio and will work closely with InterviewPath to further develop the offering for clients.

Ron Bower stated, "We’re thrilled to partner with SSE. For more than 45 years, SSE has been dedicated to service – for both their job seekers and clients - and continues to be a recruitment solutions leader.  SSE’s reseller rights give them the exclusive power to help Ohio employers create interview processes that are focused, legal, replicable, ultimately saving time and money and more accurately find the right candidate for the job.”

Getting the results from an interview can be harder than you think. Research shows that asking the right questions positions you to make more accurate hiring decisions. InterviewPath’s guides standardize interviews to ensure a consistent experience and set the interview apart from the rest.

SANaso & CCalta

Staffing Solutions Enterprises (SSE) announced today that SueAnn Naso has purchased the organization from Founder and Chief Executive Officer Carmella Calta. Naso has been with the organization since 1992, serving as President since 2009. The sale of SSE was initiated by Calta’s announcement to retire following a 45-year tenure with the organization.

“As the torch passes to me,” Naso commented, “we will continue building upon the extremely strong foundation Carmella established. Staffing Solution’s dedication to world-class service, commitment to doing the right thing, and focus on developing long-term partnerships with our customers will always be at our core. We will continue to identify new and innovative ways to support our customers’ talent acquisition needs, as well as continue investing in our staff to ensure our clients are partnered with Northeast Ohio’s most talented recruitment experts.”

Naso has been recognized throughout the years for her achievements, being named a Woman of Note Honoree in 2013, Progressive Women Who Excel winner in 2017, and recipient of the Employment Management Association Host award and the ERC Hero’s award. Throughout her tenure, Naso has continually championed for employee work-life balance, earning her the prestigious, nationally recognized When Work Works Award from 2012-2017 for excellence in workplace effectiveness and flexibility. Under her leadership, the organization also earned the “Smart Business Magazine” World Class Customer Service Award in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016, the Smart Business Pillar Award for community service in 2010, 2013, and 2014, and the Smart Business Progressive Organization of the year at the Perspectives Women Who Excel Awards in 2015.

“I am so pleased that SueAnn will lead SSE into the future,” stated Calta. “Integrity, confidence, creativity, passion for excellence are terms usually used to describe her attributes. All are true. What I admire most is that she really cares about people and she leads with a level of grace that is rarely achieved by others. SSE will continue to grow and prosper with her at the helm!”

During her 27-year tenure, Naso has been instrumental in the development and expansion of two innovative recruitment solutions, temporary workforce optimization, and recruitment process outsourcing services. She also launched an initiative to elevate client and candidate engagement resulting in increased business performance. “Over the next few months, our management team will be meeting to review and refine our strategy for continued growth. We are looking to grow the business through the addition of new service offerings, geographical expansion, and maximizing the use of recruitment technology,” Naso stated.

In announcing her retirement, Calta plans to focus more on her volunteer work. She is an active member of In Council with Women and an honoree of the Women Inspiring Strength and Hope (W.I.S.H) Initiative, honoring outstanding women for their career success, significant contributions to the community and personal passion and commitment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Throughout her years at SSE, Calta was recognized as a leader in the industry and received numerous awards for business excellence including Weatherhead 100 Service Company of the Year, National Association of Women Business Owner Top 10 and Crain’s Women of Note.
