Lack of a standardized pre-screening assessment process: The problem faced by Hexaware was not a unique one. Hexaware did not have a standardized pre-screening assessment process. They were trying out a lot of methods to figure out the best candidates among the many that applied. Hexaware is in the expansion mode & they are planning to hire some 800 people in one department for 1 Quarter, that’s the scale Hexaware operates in. With such a huge number to fill in, a lot of their hires were based on gut feelings, and a bit of bias.
Skill quantification in the hiring process: Recruiters and Hiring Managers conducted a lot of interviews to get to the right candidates. A major chunk of their time was wasted on irrelevant candidates. On certain occasions it happened that the candidates had air tight resumes, were impressive in the interviews, but lacked the required skill when hired. Every hire cost a lot of time, effort, and money to the company. Without skill quantification, it was like shooting arrows in the dark!
Getting the process automated: Recognizing these problems, Hexaware team worked with iMocha to create a solution that could in their words “plug the loopholes and create a data-driven process.” The process started with our Customer Success team onboarding their recruiters and hiring managers, helping them create assessments that validated candidate’s skills. The first impact of this was a recruitment process that was fueled by data and eliminated human bias.
Creating effective assessments: Hexaware created pre-employment assessments for various job roles and levels. iMocha’s SME’s (Subject Matter Experts) created tests for Hexaware like Azure, Java, PHP, DevOps, Testing, PMBOK, BABOK, Machine learning & every other skill they required in the company across various job-roles. Since the recruiters and hiring managers were actively involved in the test creation, they could pick and choose the skills to be assessed.
Seamless rollout: We teamed up with Hexaware to help them roll out this recruitment process. Multiple departments have incorporated this process and iMocha’s platform could handle huge amounts of data effortlessly without any glitches.
Hexaware has been using iMocha worldwide as its assessment partner. They have seen a marked increase in the number of quality candidates that reach the interview phase in almost half the time it used to take them earlier. Since adaption of the iMocha solution they have assessed close to 50,000 candidates for various job roles.
