Our Science

Support fair, diverse hiring with Human Potential Intelligence

Hiring should be fair—and backed by science. The typical hiring process often shuts out the best candidates—but Human Potential Intelligence is rooted in science to create a fairer hiring landscape. While hiring AI may be new, the rigor behind it isn’t. Our innovative models are built on decades of science and over 70 million interviews—and look to the future of what’s possible for your workplace.

Review Background
“We've added an ethics department to the organization to make sure we're helping to create a diverse environment that welcomes everyone. I feel like HireVue takes that task and that work off of my plate and allows me to rely on the technology to meet that standard. ”
HireVue Customer

Science, not guesswork

Legacy HR tech was built for speed and quantity, not quality—and it evaluated what was achieved, not what could be achieved in the future. At Hirevue we believe science, deployed correctly, is a major part of the solution. We’ve rejected the old standard and work to perfect AI-powered tech that benefits hirers and candidates. We believe hiring on attitude and aptitude for specific roles should be the preferred method—not a standardized job description. And only then, can teams start hiring for greatness—and that’s what we call Human Potential Intelligence.

Consistency of AI machine learning

Question and evaluation consistency matters when it comes to encouraging diversity in hiring. While humans try to be consistent, they are inherently inconsistent and things like familiarity bias can easily creep in. Machines, however, are consistent by design. Everyone is treated equally in a HireVue assessment: Candidates respond to the same questions, play the same games, and receive the same amount of time to prepare and answer. And, with ethically-designed algorithms, candidates’ responses are evaluated against identical criteria, every time.


Watch How

Building on a foundation of data and experience

We’ve learned a lot by conducting over 70 million interviews. With this data, our models focus on skills, behaviors, and competencies specific to the job and not on irrelevant information like how someone was dressed, which university they attended, or which keywords are in their resume.

AI in a human-centric way

External AI experts, along with our Data Scientists and Industrial/Organizational Psychologists, regularly check our AI models to mitigate for bias and encourage diversity in hiring.

Increasing Diversity in Hiring

For many of today’s leading organizations, it’s no longer enough to simply ensure your hiring process is compliant and doesn’t create adverse impact—true leaders want to drive toward creating a more diverse organization. A recent review of data from four long-term HireVue customers demonstrated that the Virtual Job Tryout® (VJT) can play a key role in these efforts. By comparing the make-up of the employee population before and after the implementation of the VJT, customers in multiple industries saw significant improvements in new hire diversity. On average, clients saw an increase of more than 40% in ethnicity and 26% in gender diversity.
