Daivergent, a Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to the autism and neurodiversity community, provides a technology platform utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning to match its pool of candidates to existing job postings. By integrating with SAP Fieldglass, Daivergent will be able to reach more businesses looking to fill their contingent workforce needs at scale with AI-driven intelligent matching.
“SAP has long championed the benefits of a diverse workplace and we’re excited to welcome Daivergent as an application extension partner of SAP Fieldglass,” said Sean Thompson, senior vice president, Business Network and Ecosystem, SAP Ariba and SAP Fieldglass. “With our own Autism at Work program, we’ve seen firsthand how individuals on the autism spectrum bring specialized skills and expertise to their very technical roles. By partnering with Daivergent, we’re now providing our customers with the opportunity to recruit contingent workers – an arrangement increasingly preferred – from Daivergent’s unique talent pool to help address some of their most challenging data processing needs.”
According to Autism Speaks, adults with autism are either unemployed or underemployed, with estimates as high as 90%. Daivergent is working to change that by providing work readiness to candidates on the autism spectrum and to the organizations looking to support the autism community. Daivergent’s proprietary matching algorithm assesses candidate strengths to identify the work they are best suited for and then matches them with job and learning opportunities, such as curriculums aligned with market demand in high-growth areas like data analysis and business intelligence.
“By integrating our solution with SAP Fieldglass and offering Daivergent for Autism Recruiting on the SAP App Center, we are opening doors for our candidates and putting them in front of companies that care as much about diversity as they do about their bottom line,” said Byran Dai, co-founder, and CEO of Daivergent. “SAP Fieldglass customers looking for specialized workers skilled in navigating the complex, detail-oriented tasks can find high-quality candidates through Daivergent.”
Daivergent’s partnership with SAP Fieldglass represents the next phase of its relationship with SAP. As a 2019 Enterprise Social Impact Tech Startup with SAP.iO Foundry New York – an accelerator for early-stage enterprise tech companies – Daivergent was able to further scale its business and deliver greater value to customers, through curated mentorship with SAP experts, external industry and VC mentors, and startup veterans.
