Staffing and Recruiting
Hiring adept candidates
While resume screening is among the primary steps in hiring, it is seldom fruitful in capturing candidates who actually meet job requirements. Moreover, manual one-to-one interviews are always time-consuming and may not always reflect candidates’ potential to create the desired dent. Verticalmove, Inc. was struggling to source candidates who are not just skilled on paper but also in practice. Their clients were not satisfied with the candidates delivered to them, sighting the incompetency of candidates in meeting skills requirements. For example, a candidate hired for coding was not sufficiently skilled at it. This needed to be resolved soon.
Apprehensive about candidates’ identity:
One of the major problems was rooted in doubts about candidates’ real identities. Verticalmove, Inc. found it hard to confirm whether the assessment was being run through the same candidate who was formally registered. They were looking for a reliable proctoring system.
Redundancy and repetition to arrive at job-fit candidates
In order to finally stop their radar on a skill-fit candidate, Verticalmove, Inc. had to go through multiple iterations of assessments. It was after many cycles of tests that the company could shortlist job-ready candidates for their clients.
Low test attempts to invite ratio
Verticalmove, Inc. was struggling with an unsatisfactory attempt to invite ratio. They wanted not only to increase their extent of sourcing but also the proportion of attempts reaped from that sourcing.
Advanced proctoring verified candidates’ images and videos with high reliability, thereby improving the sourcing efficiency by 80%. The Window Violation Warning System enabled Verticalmove, Inc. to spare no extra chances to candidates who violated the test window more than once. They are now placing complete trust in the iMocha-assessed candidates.
Real-time data in addition to deep insights into candidate performance enabled Verticalmove, Inc. to back their decisions with solid evidence. This helped them to upscale their business to new standing. They are redefining their marketing strategies by leveraging technical insights that measure candidates’ performance to the last mile.
iMocha’s Customer Success Team helped Verticalmove, Inc. navigate through expired invites and revamp their visibility. They could recover from the sunk cost of expired invites by converting them into attempts. Thus, adding to their candidate sourcing.
Step by step explanation of the workflow:
Verticalmove, Inc. has been able to eliminate almost 90% of the vetting out of the hiring procedure. They are now drawing more people to take, attempt, and pass their assessment, i.e., their usage has increased by 100%, and positive feedback from their clients is ever-increasing. Moreover, Verticalmove Inc.’s hold over candidate screening has become so strong that now they can almost predict whether a candidate will get hired based solely on test scores.
