Antonio Aleman

Antonio Aleman est Président et Cofondateur de Hyumeet. Hyumeet facilite l’humanisation du processus de recrutement et va plus loin que le “match parfait”. Nous permettons de concilier la personnalité, les valeurs et les intérêts des talents avec ceux des employeurs dès le début du processus.

Plus précisément, Hyumeet innove dans le processus de recrutement en utilisant une approche de contrat psychologique, à savoir les ententes non écrites et les obligations informelles entre un employeur et ses employés en ce qui concerne leurs attentes mutuelles quant à la manière dont chacun s’acquittera de ses rôles respectifs. Dans une entreprise, le contrat psychologique peut inclure des éléments tels que le niveau d’engagement des employés, la satisfaction au travail et la qualité des conditions de travail. Hyumeet utilise cette approche et la met en valeur en y ajoutant des valeurs mutuelles, des besoins personnels et professionnels, des motivations personnelles et des traits de personnalité vérifiés pour correspondre à l’offre d’emploi et à la culture de l’entreprise. L’équipe Hyumeet est originaire de Québec!
