All About Seismic e-Staffing
Our story, vision and mission
Seismic e-Staffing (Pty)Ltd was born on the 13th May 2015, with the focus on an advanced offering that will disrupt the Recruitment Industry. Then the 4th Industrial Revolution dawned on our Industry with the conventional recruitment processes being put under immense strain and becoming obsolete. This was a seismic disruption to all players in the Recruitment industry.
We suddenly found our ‘glass’ only half full or empty – depending on the way you look at it. We started with information mining and found that we needed to apply a 60-day periodical review system of our Online Talent portal as well as researching technological advances to again become a leader in our field.
Seismic e-Staffing is still a start-up by nature, even with the growth we have experienced over the last 4 years. Seismic is currently only compatible to South Africa, however, have been dabbling in the international market as far as Nigeria, Qatar and Southern Africa. In 2020 we will be launching Seismic 2.0, an updated and very advanced platform, with various offerings to clients and candidates alike. So, watch this space and follow us on social media to stay up to date with developments.
