HireVue launched HireVue Builder for Live, a solution designed to aid in enterprise hiring. The product combines the company’s structured interview generator with its live interview platform as a way to bring “consistency and fairness” to every version of virtual interviews.
The ability to assess role-specific competencies over points on a resume is critically important as nearly half (48%) of all the talent leaders HireVue surveyed have prioritized a skills-first approach in an attempt to mitigate labor shortages, the company said.
As a solution, Builder for Live provides pre-written interview questions that evaluate candidates for job-relevant skills. At the same time, it captures feedback within the interview experience.
“Businesses of today are hiring candidates knowing that upskilling and reskilling are inevitable as the skill landscape changes every day,” said HireVue CEO Anthony Reynolds. That, combined with persistent labor shortages, have created an “urgent” need to transform the interview process so that it focuses on identifying both the potential and skills of each candidate.
“Frankly, asking the same bad questions to a bigger pool of candidates is just scaling terrible interviews,” Reynolds observed. “We’re here to eliminate that in every step of the interview process.”
With more companies prioritizing previously overlooked candidate groups, it’s important to offer interview solutions that are more accessible to all, the company said. So, HireVue describes Builder for Live as an important component of its ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and its determination that its work to ensure the platform takes into account the needs of autistic and neurodiverse candidates.
Separately, HireVue said its professionals were to present 11 sessions at the Society for Industrial Organizational Psychology’s (SIOP) annual conference. The company also published research in the Journal of Applied Psychology, titled “New Strategies for Addressing the Diversity–Validity Dilemma With Big Data.”
