Salt Lake City, May 10, 2018 – HireVue, provider of the most comprehensive AI-driven talent assessment suite and video interviewing solutions, has completed the acquisition of London-based MindX, a game-based assessments company. MindX’s game-based assessments deliver proven solutions to accelerate the hiring process and rapidly identify cognitive traits in job candidates.
Integrating the latest advancements in psychometrics, big data and machine learning from MindX into the HireVue Video Intelligence platform will deliver to HireVue customers the capability to seamlessly incorporate game-based assessments into their candidate screening processes for more thorough evaluations and an engaging candidate experience.
“The MindX game-based assessments are a perfect complement to HireVue’s video-based pre-hire assessments solution, as they add the ability to measure fluid IQ, reasoning, and problem-solving to the ability of HireVue Assessments to evaluate job-specific knowledge, communication, and social intelligence,” commented Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO at HireVue. “We’re excited to deliver even more robust and validated tools to our customers worldwide so they can discover, hire and grow more of the best talent, faster in today’s competitive hiring market.”
MindX game-based assessments objectively measure a candidate’s cognitive abilities using a panel of challenges designed to engage candidates as they are evaluated. Cognitive traits evaluated include: problem-solving, mental flexibility, learning agility, attention, creativity, and quantitative aptitude.
Candidates can rapidly demonstrate their competencies and personality traits within a highly engaging experience. Instead of simply uploading resumes and filling out online forms, candidates can answer some job-relevant questions and play a set of scientific mini-games to more effectively show their range of professional and cognitive strengths.
“The MindX team has been working rigorously to enable companies to hire the best talent for the job using cognitive science in combination with technology,” said Clemens Aichholzer, founder and CEO at MindX. “We’re thrilled to be teaming up with HireVue at a time of rapid global expansion. HireVue and MindX share a common vision of using sound science and a data-driven approach to ensure that both recruiting and career development are fairer, more effective and more engaging for candidates and companies alike.”
