Powered by AI, automation, integrations, and analytics, the Rival product suite delivers flexible solutions that are designed to adapt and scale up or down as needs change. The suite can operate as a standalone solution or can be leveraged alongside an existing HR tech stack to increase scalability and agility.

“Human resources, and more specifically, talent acquisition teams are being pressured to do more with less in today’s macroeconomic environment. Rival is uniquely positioned to enable organizations operating in today’s ever-changing landscape to improve their competitive edge,” said HighBar Partners Managing Partner John Kim.
