HireVue’s Digital Interview Volume Triples, Reaching Thousands Per Day, as Companies Seek Improved Candidate Experience, Recruiter Productivity and Candidate Job Fit
SALT LAKE CITY – September 26, 2014 – HireVue, the leading digital recruiting and interaction platform provider, today revealed that thousands of interviews are being completed each day on their platform — according to growth statistics from it’s fiscal first half 2014. The company found top brands across industries – including 18 of FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Companies — are transforming their hiring processes with digital technology to improve efficiencies when connecting with top talent to fill open positions.
“There are over 200 million professional people unemployed across the globe, yet companies have millions of open positions and complain about not being able to find talented candidates,??? said Mark Newman, Founder and CEO of HireVue. “We believe this disconnect is unacceptable and are working to make a difference by removing any friction from meeting candidates and leveling the playing field for everyone regardless of their resume or profile. We want to give candidates a chance to tell their story, demonstrate their true skills, and ultimately, get hired. We work everyday to provide companies with the opportunity to connect with more talent, in a more personalized, scalable, and effective way. We owe it to every candidate in the world.”
As the demand for better and faster hiring solutions continues to grow, businesses are transforming their strategies through the use of modern technology, including mobile, video and big data. HireVue, whose client roster includes GE, Hilton Worldwide, JP Morgan Chase and Red Bull, recently launched an addition to their digital interaction platform, HireVue Insights™. The first of its kind solution predicts candidates who will become top performers and identifies which interviewers make the best hiring decisions. It uses a patented deep learning analytics engine, HireVue Iris™, to analyze a unique data set of interactions, feedback and performance outcomes that never before existed. Iris analyzes over 15,000 attributes and their correlation to the organization’s current top performers to predict success. HireVue Insights will be one of just six solutions featured in the highly anticipated Awesome New Technologies Showcase at the 2014 HR Tech Conference in Las Vegas, from October 7-10.

We are excited to leverage this technology to capture the strongest possible candidate pool.???
