Survale is a Talent Feedback Platform providing employers with an “Always-On.” real-time solution for automatically gathering, analyzing and acting upon satisfaction and engagement data from candidates and employees as they traverse the hiring process and become employees.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Survale allows you automatically to gather candidate, recruiter, and hiring manager feedback after each stage in your recruiting process. From "always on" career site feedback to short pulse surveys following phone screens and interviews, Survale runs in the background in real-time. Survale's analytics give you easy visual metrics that let you uncover issues with your candidate experience, but more importantly, with your entire recruiting process. 

In this article, we will cover how to:
