SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HireVue, provider of team acceleration software designed to help companies build and coach the world's best teams, celebrates "World Hiring Day" -- a 100% video-based initiative in partnership with more than 200 companies taking place on September 14, 2016. World Hiring Day gives job seekers a modern, empowering way to showcase their true ability to work and introduce themselves to companies such as Netflix, Dr Pepper Snapple, Hilton Grand Vacations, HSN, Jet.com, Chipotle, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Carnival Cruise Line, Equinix, Sabre, IBM and many others via www.worldhiringday.org.
"Our community of customers such as Delta Airlines, Hilton and JPMorgan Chase hires millions of people each year. When these organizations bypass traditional resumes and empower people to tell their stories through video, we have found that magic happens because people aren't profiles or resumes," shared Mark Newman, Founder of HireVue. "Help us connect your friends, family and community with the great opportunities available at great companies during World Hiring Day."
Interested candidates from around the world can interview for a specific job with participating companies, or simply introduce themselves to their dream company--all through digital video and all from their mobile device via the free HireVue app available for Android and iOS. Recruiters and hiring managers will watch, rate and share the video introductions instead of sifting through resumes to get a true sense of the candidates.
"The inaugural World Hiring Day is an opportunity for talent from around the world to present their qualifications and explain how they can add value to companies like Marsh & McLennan," said Laurie Ledford, Chief Human Resources Officer, Marsh & McLennan Companies. "HireVue has significantly improved the efficiency and effectiveness of our interview process and our ability to connect with prospective candidates in more authentic and meaningful ways."
Leading companies continue to turn to digital interviewing driven by three truths of hiring today:
- People aren't profiles or resumes. In just one example, a video interview landed a top candidate a job with a company that they had previously applied to 41 times via traditional means.
- Talent can come from anywhere. Resumes and online job applications focus on factors -- from job gaps to alma maters -- that research proves show little to no correlation to on-the-job performance.
- The contract between companies and candidates needs to change. Research shows the best candidates are off the market in just 10 days (Harvard Business Review), yet the average time to hire is a whopping 63 days (Corporate Executive Board). Core parts of the new contract between job seekers and companies are an interview-first approach that is more inclusive than a resume review, structured interviews that reduce bias in the process, and a focus on rapid candidate feedback to respect job seeker's time.
Digital interviewing continues to grow substantially, with more than 600 organizations worldwide using HireVue to interview millions of candidates each year. In fact, a candidate completes a HireVue interview every 15 seconds.
