Artificial Intelligence

It’s safe to say we talk about AI a lot at HireVue. Why? Because we’re passionate about connecting talent to opportunity and unlocking the potential of every candidate. 

Because every candidate has it. 

A successful hiring process includes both positive recruiter and candidate experiences—and AI is the critical piece companies need to build an experience that eliminates manual efforts, boosts engagement, and finds the most skilled candidates in your pool.

Below are the top 7 reasons to use AI in your HR management. 

Improved efficiency and productivity 

AI automates repetitive and time-consuming tasks like resume screening and scheduling interviews.

HireVue automatically pushes candidates through the funnel from screening to interviewing, offering texting communication and self-scheduling, so recruiters can keep the process efficiently moving without the headaches of phone tag and missed interviews. 

AI eliminates the manual busywork—so HR professionals can focus on more strategic activities.

Helps Reduce hiring bias

HireVue AI helps mitigate bias in the hiring process ensuring all candidates receive the same experience and are asked the same questions. 

HireVue algorithms are “locked” before deployment, so they can’t offer different outputs or “learn” new things unless it is literally updated. 

In addition, HireVue Structured Interviewing offers on-demand and live interviewing plus scheduling. In addition, Builder offers science-backed, validated questions specific to the competencies necessary for your role. Together, the structured interview experience ensures all candidates are assessed based on the same experience. 

Data-driven decision support

AI can analyze vast amounts of data to provide insights on candidate skills and potential—empowering HR managers to make informed decisions regarding hiring, promotions, and retention strategies.

HireVue Assessments offer a library of assessments that make faster, fairer decisions possible. By evaluating the skills needed for any job, in any industry, at any level, teams can trust they’re actually making the best hire—not just hoping for the best. 

AI unlocks potential

At HireVue, we know every candidate has potential—and it’s our job to unlock it. And we start at the beginning of the process. 

HireVue conversational AI matches a candidate’s skills with available job opportunities. Advanced matching capabilities ensure that specific job titles or confusing job descriptions don’t slow down the hiring process. Conversational AI ensures candidate skills are transferred and used to present all roles that fit their skill set, offering more opportunities for them. 

And by matching candidates based on skills, teams don’t lose out on top candidates simply because of role title differences (ex: “marketing manager” vs “marketing director”)—expanding the diversity of your talent pool in the process.  

Cost savings 

By automating routine tasks and improving the efficiency of HR processes, AI can lead to significant cost savings for the company. 

When National Safety Apparel (NSA) needed a solution to help meet goals and manage its staffing levels, they turned to HireVue conversational AI to transform its hiring processes and outcomes. Candidates could now seamlessly and quickly find a job, prescreen for a role, and self-schedule an interview within minutes via text or their careers page. 

As a result, NSA saw: 

  • 50% decrease cost per interview
  • 20% decrease cost per hire
  • 5x faster time-to-interview
  • 4x faster time-to-hire
  • 10% increase retention

Enhanced candidate experience

HireVue AI keeps candidates engaged in the process and offers flexibility—showing them you value their time and efforts

The job hunt is stressful, and when candidates are forced to wait days or weeks for an update, they’ll become disenchanted with the role and maybe your company—and for company’s whose candidates are also their customers, they can’t afford that. In addition, with solutions built to mitigate bias, candidates are empowered to showcase their skills, knowing that’s what proves their talent—not alma mater or who knows who
