Prior to HireVue, a behaviorial assessment was in place as part of the screening process.
“Our pre-employment assessment was quickly replaced with HireVue,” offered Kintz. “The insight we’ve gained from HireVue was is much more valuable than the assessment tool which has saved us over $70,000 a year by eliminating.”
HireVue has also allowed ActionLink to reduce or eliminate excessive costs associated with multiple job posting sites. "With HireVue, we can easily share an interview link across social channels, inviting candidates to introduce themselves to us. This helps us easily build our candidate pools and reach candidates where they often prefer to interact with businesses. We find we aren’t using as many traditional recruiting methods anymore, as HireVue has allowed us to become much more modern in the way we build our teams,” explained Kintz.
Early success with merchandising positions led to the sales managers requesting HireVue for sales staff.
“HireVue won over even the most resistant of the sales team, and we’ve expanded HireVue to ALL sales positions,” Kintz commented. “The lower fallout rate and higher quality hires in the Merchandising Department convinced Sales that they had to take advantage of this solution. We’re excited about delivering even more value and efficiency to the business and our clients by expanding HireVue to all sales positions.”
“Most of our hiring managers won’t even look at a candidate without viewing their HireVue interview first. They love the insight it provides,” shared Kintz. “Additionally, they appreciate how convenient it is. They wouldn’t be able to sit down and conduct 20 interviews in a day, but watching 20 digital interviews is more manageable.”
Collaboration among recruiters and business leaders has also improved at ActionLink. Julie Pinter, Senior Recruiter, added “The ability to rate a candidate, share my comments and rating with hiring managers, and view others’ comments, has been awesome. We have true collaboration with the business on why this candidate would be a good fit.”
“We're building teams for our clients 60% faster. HireVue has drastically improved our screening time,” Kintz explained. “Candidates are moving through the interview process in an average of two days compared to five to seven days. We are thrilled with the ability to service our clients with the best candidates more quickly.”
“For anyone who is reluctant to try HireVue, once you try it, you will be amazed at the benefits you’ll see: quality of candidate, time savings, efficiencies improved and cost savings – just to name a few,” advised Pinter.“HireVue has drastically changed our business and given us a competitive advantage in a way that no other solution has done.”
