  Digital Disruptor Sponsor of the Year: Once again, UnitedHealth Group demonstrated tremendous leadership and advocacy of its digital recruiting efforts across the business.

Hilton reports a candidate Net Promoter Score of 72, which is nearly triple the average NPS score of the hospitality industry overall.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by HireVue for consistently having one of the highest candidate Net Promoter Scores among its customers,” said Lindsey Reed-Smith, VP of Talent Acquisition at TMX Finance. “As one of the largest and fastest growing consumer finance companies in the US, we are often hiring in markets where we have no brand recognition. It’s imperative that we provide a digital recruiting experience that reflects who we are as an organization, and what candidates can expect if they join our team. We’re excited to continue to deliver an incredible experience, and reach even more candidates with the convenience and ease of digital recruiting.”

“Our award winners have all demonstrated innovation, leadership, and an appetite to lead and embrace new technologies to improve their respective recruiting functions, ” said Mark Newman, founder and CEO of HireVue. “The results that our winners have reported have not only helped modernize and re- invent recruiting, but have also played a signficant role across the business – helping to bring scale to talent interactions and bringing delight to all of those involved in recruiting great talent in today’s competitive market.”
