Career and Talent Builders

Helping job seekers and companies put their best foot forward.

The Scala Network has partnered with organizations for over 10 years to help grow leadership skills through training, coaching and mentorship.

Improve career potential

Our Scala Partner companies tell us that they need more support to help grow their teams in a way that eliminates bias, promotes diversity and looks for potential. Our partners are committed to supporting the potential of women in their organizations.

Job seekers are faced with an overwhelming landscape of online options that most times are unresponsive. Our Scala Careers initiative provides informative and practical career management skills development, coaching, networking opportunities and community building support to help promote and build potential.



What is the Applicant Navigator?

Hiring today has changed

Employers need faster, unbiased and more effective recruitment strategies and methods to attract and retain talent.

Fill roles quickly and efficiently

The ‘Great Resignation’ combined with an opening economy means internal HR teams are overloaded with roles to fill. When you pair that with a more selective and in demand candidate pool, fewer resumes come in. And, even worse, qualified candidates can select roles elsewhere if you don’t move fast.

We help you manage the load: review applicants, shortlist for interviews and move quickly to offer.

Put your best foot forward from posting to onboarding

We will help you adapt your job postings to reflect what today’s candidates are looking for, ensuring more quality candidates apply. We will protect your brand from application to interview by ensuring we are responsive, approachable and in line with your corporate culture.

Eliminate unconscious bias and build a more equitable hiring process

Research today shows that most recruiting processes are impacted by unconscious bias, limiting your candidate pool and diversity within your organization. Our process works to eliminate this and bring more equity to your recruitment.


Elevate your hiring process by working with the Scala Network.
