Alessandro Raguseo, CEO “Hiring the wrong people is the fastest way to undermine a sustainable business.”
This quote from a renowned author and business coach, Kevin J. Donaldson, reflects that people are not the most important asset in a business; the right people are. Evidently, organisations, regardless of the size and industry, need to go the extra mile with their significant key to growth: recruiting.
Many HR managers find themselves at rock bottom when it comes to hiring new talent or filling up existing job positions in their company. Regardless of the shortage for the ideal candidature in specific fields such as IT, they also face impediments when the talented applicants radiate the wrong attitude regarding the organisational culture. This means that the line managers have to spend further resources to assist these applicants in evolving to a new phase or new self-perception. “Finding the right candidate is never a problem, but it is often challenging to make companies attractive enough to hire that perfect candidate,” says Alessandro Raguseo, the CEO of R-Everse. Born with an ambition to reform the Recruitment Process Automation (RPO) market, Italy-based R-Everse is taking the European enterprise world by storm with its unique recruitment model and digital modus operandi. Besides, with an office in Berlin as well as with active clients in many European countries, including Norway and Finland, R-Everse has been challenging the rules of recruiting and overturning them, long before COVID hit businesses across the world, with remote working.
The New Way of Recruiting
With a vision to change the narrative in recruiting, Raguseo along with Daniele Bacchi combined over 15 years of rich experience in personnel search and selection to bring a new way of recruiting for specialist talent. R-Everse features a collaborative business model similar to Wikipedia to help companies acquire real specialisation in every professional area at a time when the job market is rapidly evolving with new roles, technology, and skills. “Our job is not limited to finding the right candidate, but to work together with the clients to address every challenge down the pipe, and help them win the competition,” adds Raguseo. As collaborative recruitment is gaining traction today, R-Everse as a one-stop-shop to streamlines all the recruitment processes in an organisation, from job hunting to candidate engagement to dealings, enabling clients to grow their business without any distractions.
For finding the right talent, R-Everse ensures that its recruitment consultants have the support and guidance of a scout, an external specialist in the area concerned. R-Everse’s holistic network of professional recruiters, scouts, and industry experts is always available to provide reliable assessments and reports on the hard skills or soft skills of the applicants. Amidst the new normal of remote working that the Covid-19 pandemic brings forth, recruiters can leverage R-Everse’s robust dashboards to garner real-time updates and insights and candidate feedback from the comfort of their homes. As such, organisations are offered utmost and real-time transparency in any selection mandate.
A Data-Driven Approach to Recruiting

The R-Everse team also utilises its proprietary software to perform the search and collect information in a digital format, which is then analysed to glean meaningful insights. R-Everse goes the extra mile by providing detailed reports on the number of candidates shortlisted and contacted, what motivates them to change their jobs, the number of competitors in the market who also want to hire the same type of candidates and the salary they are willing to pay, and much more. These reports also enlist the reasons that make talented candidates refuse a particular job offer, thereby allowing firms to revisit their selection processes. This particular collection of information followed by analysis is referred to as Job Reputation Analysis.
Another crucial element that adds value to the R-Everse service is its dynamic support system created by summing up the competencies and knowledge pool of industry experts across a wide range of verticals. This allows them to tailor the services to meet the specific skillsets required by the clients, based on reliable data and professional expertise. “If you’re looking for a priest, then we’ll employ a Bishop to assess their skill,” explains Raguseo.
As a paperless, digital company, R-Everse’s data-driven approach leaves a digital trail in everything it does. HR professionals find this digital information particularly useful for explaining to the executive body why it’s challenging to fill a specific position in the company. Its job analysis reputation is an excellent tool for HR wings to circulate information regarding the characteristics, threats, and opportunities of each search across the enterprise, from top to bottom.
Highest Level of Transparency
Besides the innovative initiatives and services offered, R-Everse holds a unique position in the market for offering the utmost transparency—a winning differentiator of the company. A high level of transparency has earned R-Everse the trust of its huge client base, which include some of the biggest brands in the world. “It’s like when you’re in a restaurant and you can see the kitchen through the glass; that’s the level of transparency we offer. Our clients can have a real-time update of everything we are doing for them, through their dashboard. Our clients find this impressive,” adds Raguseo.
Datalogic, a global technology leader in the automatic data capture and process automation markets, is one such happy customer of R-Everse’s cutting-edge RPO services. The company wanted to hire more than 100 skilled engineers, and R-Everse was selected after a fiery competition with some of the big names in the industry. Upon onboarding, the R-Everse team was brave enough to point out to the client that their recruiting processes were lengthy and bottlenecked, and educated them on the need to change them. Since they can certificate the hard skills of candidates, R-Everse was able to convince DataLogic to change their processes and remove every obstacle, thereby finishing recruitment of more than 100 engineers in less than just eight months.
Even though R-Everse came into inception just three years ago, the company is growing at a rapid pace and have an exceptional team of more than 60 employees right now. Moreover, the company’s attention to promoting quality organisational culture, work environment, and relational model based on mutual trust has awarded it the best place to work for women and the third best place to work in Italy. R-Everse have already established its office in Germany earlier this year and are planning to further expand its footprint in France, the UK, the US, and in the Middle-East in the near future.
