See’s Candies Signs Agreement to Use Mogul’s Talent Platform

February 14, 2022 – Mogul recently signed a deal with See’s Candies in which the company will use the global diversity recruitment company’s talent acquisition platform to find, recruit and hire talent. Powered by patent-pending software filters, Mogul’s platform allows recruiters to source candidates in numerous ways, including by ethnicity, gender, disability status and veteran status, without limiting search results. “We are looking forward to using Mogul’s unique talent acquisition platform, which offers access to 430 million diverse candidates,” said Chad Paulson, senior vice president of human resources at See’s Candies. “At See’s Candies, we are dedicated to equality and a diverse workforce, and Mogul’s talent platform will give us access to a diverse and talented pool of potential candidates.”

Since its founding in 1921, See’s Candies has been dedicated to making candy “Mary See’s way.” Based in South San Francisco, See’s Candies has expanded from one candy shop to nearly 250 shops across America and an online store. Led by founder and CEO Tiffany Pham, Mogul pairs executive search and technology solutions. The firm has a network of senior-level women and minorities, and partners with organizations to attract and advance top, diverse talent. The firm partners with the Fortune 1000 and fast-growing start-ups to recruit diverse leaders, including Amazon, Intuit, IBM, Nike, Hearst, Stanley Black & Decker, McKinsey & Company, Intel, T-Mobile, Mastercard, Marsh & McLennan and more.

Working with Clients During Challenging Times

Ms. Pham recently sat down with Hunt Scanlon Media to discuss the pandemic, hiring, and how her firm has adjusted to working with clients and candidates during these times. “We see a new normal emerging and many companies are evolving along with it. We think remote workforces and hybrid models will become more common as companies compete for top diverse talent,” Ms. Pham said. “The pandemic required all of us to innovate in the way we approach our workforce, and that innovation has been impactful. We always support our clients’ flexible needs when developing strategies and operational models and try to think of new or different ways to improve their processes or products.”

Mogul Partners with Namely

Mogul recently inked a deal with Namely, a New York-based HR technology platform for mid-sized companies “Diversity promotes creative problem-solving and thinking, which we value incredibly highly,” said Amy Roy, chief people officer of Namely. “The Mogul products will offer us access to a wider range of diverse talent than ever before, and that’s important to our future growth as an organization.” Namely’s software streamlines the complexities of HR operations in one platform: recruiting, onboarding, payroll, time and attendance, performance management, benefits administration, compliance and analytics. Namely also offers managed payroll and benefits services.

“This is a very exciting time for the search industry,” Ms. Pham said. “We can expect to see a growing focus on searching for diverse talent, particularly at executive levels but also for board of director roles. Many companies with very good overall D&I numbers are asking for help in searching for diverse talent in certain roles, primarily at the board level or above the middle management level.”

“They are evolving their focus on diversity and working to make sure that there is diversity at all levels and functions of the organization,” she said. “At Mogul, this is our specialty; we find top diverse talent for the world’s top organizations, like Hershey, Bain, Stanley Black & Decker and United Healthcare. Our clients know we have developed groundbreaking, patent-pending technologies for this very purpose, and they love us because of it.”
