Can HR records in the Cloud replace resumes to help startups find their ideal employees?

We can share our photos and documents to the Cloud, so why can’t we share our employee data (i.e., HR records) to the cloud?

Limited research suggests about two (2) in three (3) employees that terminate voluntarily have a tenure of less than two (2) years. As employees move from one company to the next, employers must create new employee records. Instead of duplicating records, why can't employees' HR records be available in the cloud and accessible to employers anywhere?

Is there value to having access to a new hire’s historical HR records in the Cloud, including: training & certifications; job titles; promotions; salary history (rate increases, commissions & bonuses); past projects; awards & achievements; supervisor & subordinate references; culture-fit analytics; and, perhaps even performance evaluations?

With access to HR data in the Cloud, job applications could submit their HR records to prospective employers in place of non-standard resumes when applying for open positions.

With access to HR data in the Cloud, employers could engage in talent hacking using culture fit analytics to build talent pools with their ideal candidates; automate & streamline the recruiting process; eliminate duplication and manual data entry into their HRIS; improve retention and reduce turnover; and, reduce hiring and training costs.


Thanks to Joshua Dan, Rajat Singhal, Greg Dizzia, Vincent Lordier and others for answering my question, “Can recruiting be disrupted with a cloud-based service that helps startups find the ideal employees - without job postings?”

You just would need to have employee's consent to share information across companies. There would be a huge privacy concern that you would have to take into account. The individual would have to opt-in to sharing this information, which may initially limit the database of your records.
