HRchitect Tech Vendor News: HireVue and Vodafone to Explore Digital Recruiting & Candidate Experience at HR Tech Europe

Global Talent Interaction and Digital Recruiting Leader to Join Vodafone to Highlight the Importance of Custom Candidate Experience for Positive Employment Brand

SALT LAKE CITY – October 17, 2013 – HireVue, the leading talent interaction and digital recruiting provider, today announced that it will share details of multinational telecommunication company Vodafone’s digital recruiting success during the HR Tech Europe Conference and Expo, taking place October 24-25, 2013 in Amsterdam. Based on candidate survey data, Vodafone reports that more than 84 percent of its job candidates look favorably on the company due to the use of digital technology in recruiting. Dedicated to providing an exceptional experience for candidates – who may also be customers – Vodafone supports its employment and overall brand with a convenient process that gives jobseekers a powerful voice at the start.

Candidate experience is often talked about but seldom acted upon. Whether it be job boards, social networks or internal postings, an employer’s first opportunity to engage with and impress candidates about what their company has to offer and why they should consider joining the organization is often squandered.

During the HR Tech Europe product demonstration session, “Candidates are Customers Too, So Why Don’t We Treat Them That Way,” Vodafone will share how one wrong move can not only turn off a candidate but also a potential, current or future customer – not to mention the negative feelings they’ll share amongst friends. Scot Sessions, director of Marketing for HireVue, will join Vodafone’s head of Talent Capability, Bulent Bayram to detail how Vodafone transformed its talent acquisition processes with HireVue to offer jobseekers a more dynamic, engaging experience that gives them a voice to tell their story beyond the static resume early in the recruiting process. Attendees will hear case study results that showcase how Vodafone increased the efficiency and effectiveness of its recruiting program and improved quality of hire, and have the opportunity to participate in a live digital interview as part of the product demonstration. “Candidates are Customers Too, So Why Don’t We Treat Them That Way?” will take place on Friday, October 25, 2013 at 11:15 CEST.

Additionally, Gavin Speirs, managing director for HireVue client, Solutions Driven, will discuss the importance of providing a value proposition to candidates during a Talent & Recruitment session. “Candidates Need a Value Proposition Too” will take place on Friday, October 25 at 14:15 CEST.

Conference attendees can also experience a live digital interviewing demo by visiting HireVue’s recruiting experts in Booth No. 504 during the conference’s open expo hours. HireVue will exhibit it’s recently released Talent Interaction Platform™, including the revolutionary CodeVue technical recruiting solution, to help HR professionals amplify their employment brand while gaining Hi-Def insight on candidates.

“In today’s highly competitive, global workplace, employers need to communicate an attractive employment brand in order to source and select the best candidates,” said Chip Luman, COO for HireVue. “HireVue’s digital recruiting, sourcing, screening, interviewing and onboarding solutions offer a more personal approach to recruiting that is revolutionizing the way employers and jobseekers market themselves. We are excited to share our thought leadership, to have such a presence at HR Tech Europe, and to share details of our clients’ success with digital recruiting.”
