Mobile Programming wanted a solution that would help solve 2 problems - the lack of concrete data points to justify the candidate profiles shared with clients and the lack of technical recruiters to fulfill the wide variety of skill knowledge to increase time to fill.
Mobile Programming has 5 centers in India with around 25 recruiters. Mobile Programming caters to clients in the USA as well as India. Mobile Programming believes in proactively reaching its clients and achieving customer excellence. While reviewing its hiring process, Vipin Sharma, General Manager, HR & Recruitment, discovered that its clients were spending far too much time interviewing candidates.
For a job role, if it shortlisted 20 candidates, its clients had to interview all 20 of them individually, resulting in many work hours per hire. The recruitment team conducted the initial screening through telephonic interviews, after which the candidate profiles were sent to the clients. While speaking to the candidates, the recruitment team focused on their educational background and experience and relied on what their resumes presented about their skills. Skill quantification through phone interviews had a limited scope. The recruitment team lacked the expertise to evaluate the candidate’s technical skills.
Mobile Programming focused on devising a process wherein candidates could be filtered based on assessments, and only relevant candidate profiles reached its clients. While they had a raw outline of the hiring process, they were looking for an assessment solution that has the maximum number of technical skills & they should be able to upload the questions of the clients. Most of all, a solution that accelerated the hiring process for its clients, which was the main objective.
After much analysis, evaluation, and brain-storming, the core team at Mobile Programming decided to partner with iMocha and started using it for technical assessments of the candidates. Every candidate was asked to appear for an assessment pertaining to the job role. Recruiters no longer had to rely only on telephonic interviews. They filtered candidates based on the assessment results and sent these reports to the clients. The shortlisting of candidates was data-driven rather than relying on the gut feeling of the recruiters.
What benefited Mobile Programming the most was that the reports provided a detailed skill-wise analysis of each candidate. In the case of coding assessments, its clients were able to view the detailed code written by candidates and evaluate them accordingly. With the help of reports, its clients could further filter irrelevant candidates.
With some training on the tool, Mobile Programming recruiters developed proficiency in creating apt assessments.
iMocha has a comprehensive library with the latest skill tests. This helped Mobile Programming to choose or create an assessment best suited to the job description provided by the clients. The time-saving and filtered recruitment process enabled Vipin’s team to operate more optimally. Their clients also spent time only interviewing relevant candidates, and 90% of the candidates who performed well on assessments did well on interviews too.
60% reduction in 'Time to Hire' for clients
Mobile Programming reduced its clients' time to hire by 60%. This was possible because its clients were only investing time in interviewing the right set of candidates. Every company strives to achieve a minimal ratio of time-to-hire, and Mobile Programming helped its clients achieve it.
40% increase in acceptance of candidate profiles by clients
With an effective hiring setup in place, Mobile Programming weeded out irrelevant candidates after the assessment reports. This ensued in its clients accepting the shortlisted profiles as the filtration was data-driven. This was a win-win situation as quality candidates got placed in leading companies.
The well-structured hiring process increased the overall productivity of the team. Recruiters created assessments for the clients, filtered out irrelevant candidates, and lined up quality candidates for interviews, thus saving time and effort.
