PredictiveHire launches a game-changing fully automated interview solution that delivers unprecedented hiring velocity.
MELBOURNE, Australia, Feb. 21, 2022 – Predictive Hire, the inventor of the world’s first Smart Interviewer, has announced the debut of its newest breakthrough, an automated mobile-first hiring process that quickly provides high-quality employees.
This new integrated offering includes a new product called VideoInterview, which is a simple and engaging video interview solution that allows hiring managers to conduct hundreds of interviews without having to schedule anything, resulting in incredible recruiting speed.
PredictiveHire’s Smart Interviewer, the smartest and most objective interviewer on the market, uses a simple text chat to create a weighted score for each candidate, linked to the ideal profile for the role.
PredictiveHire’s customers’ time to decision has been lowered to under 24 hours as a result of the combined advances, giving them the flexibility they need to recruit quickly to fit in a highly competitive candidate market.
Because, unlike text, bias is virtually impossible to eradicate once video and voice are incorporated, PredictiveHire’s video solution differs from others in that no AI is utilized to screen the video interviews.
VideoInterview allows applicants to simply record video responses from their mobile devices, and it has helped firms retain prospects by providing a familiar and candidate-centric hiring experience that promptly informs them of their success. In addition, each candidate receives personalized comments.
The new product innovation was created as a direct response to a need by Australia’s biggest private employer, a large retail chain, who urgently needed to hire better and faster.
Predictive Hire CEO Barb Hyman said PredictiveHire built the product so that hiring managers no longer needed to sacrifice the quality of candidates for speed
“In a world where there is a massive shortage of talent – even for recruiters themselves, businesses need to find a less taxing way to assess talent,” Hyman said.
“We believe that the introduction of VideoInterview makes us the only truly automated hiring solution that addresses fairness, fit and speed while genuinely engaging candidates,” she said.
Woolworths Group (ASX: WOW), is the largest private employer in Australia, with over 1 million candidates applying for 40,000 roles a year. It estimates it saved about 5,000 recruitment hours in the first week of using PredictiveHire alone.
“We love the tool, and we knew candidates would love it because it’s mobile and it’s interactive. We also love the fact that we can measure advocacy for Woolworths at the end of it,” said Keri Foti, Head of Advisory & Talent Acquisition Services, Woolworths Australia.
This latest innovation comes off the back of a number of big announcements for PredictiveHire including:
- The appointment of Nick Bosch as its Head of Growth, North America after the Australian-headquartered company grew by 300% in the last 12 months.
- The creation of InterviewBERT – which uses Google’s model for Natural Language Processing (NLP) – to understand the contextual meaning of words in written job interviews, applying PredictiveHire’s proprietary data set of over 330 million words.
- The invitation for Phai Labs, the R&D arm arm of PredictiveHire to present their findings from their latest research paper on “Identifying and Mitigating Gender Bias in Structured Interview Responses” at SIOP (The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology) symposium in April.
