In today's society, diversity and inclusivity are more critical than ever. The WayPoint platform is on a mission to improve societal outcomes by utilising technological advancements and innovation in the Recruitment and Talent Management Software Space to promote diversity and inclusion.
When companies hire a diverse workforce, they open themselves to various perspectives and ideas that can help improve their business. A diverse workforce can also create a more welcoming and inclusive work environment, increasing employee morale and productivity.
The WayPoint platform is designed to help companies achieve these goals. With tools and resources that promote diversity and inclusion, WayPoint is working towards establishing a fair and equitable workplace for all employees. This benefits not only the employees but also the companies that hire them. Using technology to foster inclusivity in the workplace, WayPoint sets the stage for a brighter future for everyone.
WHAT IS WAYPOINT?
We proudly offer WayPoint, a cloud-based recruitment and talent management software developed from over ten years of experience working with diverse talent, including applicants from Neurodiverse, First Nations, CALD, and Veterans backgrounds.
WayPoint is designed to help businesses streamline the entire recruitment-talent sustainability lifecycle, from applicant sourcing to candidate onboarding to sustaining talent in a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace.
With WayPoint, organisations can:
easily create, announce, and manage talent programs, pre-qualify applicants using custom online forms, review applications, and assess candidates’
use tags to create shortlisting of candidates, notify candidates about their application status through email alerts, send automated no-reply email notifications to remind applicants of the application’s close date, and receive daily program statistic reports.
oversee the planning and operating functions of talent-development programs, create customisable participant surveys, objectively evaluate skills and competency using the Skills Framework for the Information Age, create learning plans to plan and manage participant’s learning development, observe, and check the learning progress of participants, and create and manage content/documents.
WayPoint Platform User Views
In WayPoint, there are two different views available. The Employer view manages recruitment and operational tasks, while employees use the Participant view to manage their assigned tasks.
The Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), pronounced Sofia, is a global framework that outlines digital and other Information Communications Technology (ICT) related skills, responsibilities, and competencies.
Government agencies, private enterprises, and individuals for workforce planning, recruitment, career path frameworks, and skills assessment utilise SFIA. It has become the accepted language for skills and competencies in the digital world worldwide.
There are seven levels of responsibility and accountability in SFIA, with Level 1 being the lowest and Level 7 being the highest. Each level describes the behaviours, values, knowledge, and characteristics required to be considered competent at that level. The five universal attributes present in each level are autonomy, influence, complexity, knowledge, and business skills.
In addition to the responsibility levels, SFIA lists professional skill definitions from A to Z. The consistency of the levels of responsibility carries forward into professional skills. The levels of responsibility and professional skills work together to describe competence.

This feature showcases the available training and development to enhance the performance of both individuals and teams. The Learning Library is a valuable resource that contains the required training courses that participants will undertake as part of the program, as outlined by the organisation.
Having great content is crucial as it can enhance the experience of both participants and system users. We have developed the Content functionality to assist with digital content collection, management, storage, and publication. Users can create content flexibly or structured, ensuring that the information source remains centralised instead of scattered across multiple locations.
Having a single source of truth can be a considerable time and energy saver. Proper documentation promotes efficiency, improves communication, and maintains quality control and processes. With the Documents Library, you can manage various electronic assets such as images, documents, and videos. This feature allows you to store important files and documents and easily incorporate them into your training courses within the Learning Library.
Finding suitable candidates for a job can be much work. That's where the Recruitment function comes in. It helps recruiters manage talent acquisition, including identifying, sourcing, screening, shortlisting, and interviewing candidates.
Within the Recruitment function, there are two key features:
1. Programs: Attracting talented individuals can be complex and challenging. The Programs feature makes it easier by allowing recruiters to create, edit, duplicate, archive/unarchive, and delete program types such as employment programs, expressions of interest, and general registrations.
2. Applicants: Every organisation is unique, but they all must attract, hire, and maximise top talent. The Applicants feature helps recruiters and employers track applicants throughout the recruiting and hiring process, making it simpler and more efficient.
To manage and configure various features such as Participants, Users, Teams, Recruitment, Dialog, and Learning, utilise the Settings option.
Information about WayPoint Functionality and the latest updates, improvements, and bug fixes is found in the online Help file's Changelog.

You can also view upcoming actions, monitor your learning progress, and add personal reflections that can be extracted in pdf format.
The 360 Dialog, a customisable participant survey, was created to understand how participants feel in their workplace. It comes with a Default Dialog that features a range of workplace integration and behavioural questions, which involve collaborative activities between the participant and support team.
The tool allows for the assignment of actions, goals, and tasks and collects progressive data that can be used to create development plans and activities.
