“With HireVue's Team Acceleration technology we immediately saw a decrease in our screening time,” Brady explains. “We’re now able to provide candidate feedback much faster - and all within HireVue. From when we first receive an application to the time we make a decision is an average of 12 days; a process that could have taken months prior to HireVue.”
Carnival began leveraging HireVue as the information hub for all candidate information.
“HireVue is now also the primary source for housing all audition materials,” says Brady. “It's great to have all information, regardless of the source of the application, in one central location. The application, resume, and recorded video audition are all in one system. We immediately saw an improvement in our workflow and the process is much more streamlined.”
Having Carnival’s entertainment staff be able to communicate with guests is crucial. With Carnival hiring around the globe, Brady’s team needed a way to verify their fluency.
“Another way in which we’re using HireVue is to test language fluency. We hire many candidates from non-English speaking countries and we need to know how fluent they are in English. With HireVue, it’s so easy to see their communication and language skills,” Brady explains.
"We hire artists; and artists like to share and express themselves and HireVue allows them to do so in a very non-threatening way. We want the Carnival candidate experience to be less corporate, more fun and more personal and a true reflection of our organization and HireVue has enabled us to do that.” comments Brady.
“For us, the proof is in the pudding. Our bottom line has been significantly impacted by HireVue and the ROI has proven itself. With HireVue you’re showcasing your organization as an innovative, personal and fun place to work. Aside from that, you’re offering your candidate an opportunity to share who they are and tell their story. It’s become integral to us and no other technology that I’ve seen has had the effect that this has,” Brady concludes.
