HireVue intends to quickly accelerate the growth of both companies’ technology to create innovative solutions that allow organisations to understand and activate a candidate’s potential beyond just their background and experience.
Anthony made further comment: “Together we’re going to redefine what transformative talent experiences look like, and it starts with enabling more businesses to use AI where it’s best suited:
AI automates mundane tasks and gives talent leaders back precious time to focus on relationship building while giving candidates greater flexibility around when to interview and how they receive feedback
It also raises the bar on fairness, with auditable and explainable tools that are easier to hold to account than black box human decision making.
We’re at an inflection point in the global workforce – demographics are shifting, consumer demands are permanently altered, and skills shortages persist. It’s against all of these trends that hiring teams desperately need to find people who are qualified to fill open roles. It’s going to take every tool in the recruiter and hiring manager’s toolbox to thrive, and companies that give their skilled team members AI-driven tools will win the competition for top talent.”
