"After our first hiring class using HireVue, we promoted 1/3 of the class to full time positions," Droste explains. "Traditionally, we hoped to be able to promote 1/4 of them, so to improve the promotion rate 30% above our goal was a huge success. We were also thrilled with the quality of hire we were able to achieve using HireVue’s Team Acceleration software."
"With HireVue, we've been able to keep a solid pipeline of qualified sales talent at our fingertips. When we have turnover or want to expand and add more team members, HireVue makes it easy to jump back into the system and see whom you've previously determined would be a top candidate. You don’t start from square one, which has been a huge advantage to our sales leaders as we look to build an incredible team quickly," says Droste.
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.”
