PredictiveHire is named Candidate Experience Solution of the Year

PredictiveHire, a text-based AI recruitment solution has been recognised globally for its commitment to creating a hiring experience that is  empowering and motivating to the individual and which enhances your company’s brand.

The TIARA Talent Tech Star, awarded to Predictive Hire, honours the most exemplary businesses globally in the talent acquisition industry. Selected from a group of international finalists as a bold and innovative startup, PredictiveHire was deemed top of the class, having demonstrated the value and impact of their solution at a time when agency and in-house recruiters are embracing technology and new ways of working. 

The Candidate Experience Solution of the Year Award recognised PredictiveHire as 

“a matching solution that could fundamentally change the way candidates experience recruitment, delivering valuable insight to both the employer and the candidate whether they are recruited or not.”

The judges included the Head of Search & Staffing UK&I and EMEA at LinkedIn, Sales and Marketing Director of ManpowerGroup UK, and  Head of Innovation and Transformation at PwC.

PredictiveHire CEO Barb Hyman said the team was honoured to receive industry recognition for their candidate experience solution which was a core pain point that PredictiveHire solved for along with bias and recruitment costs. 

“For far too long as an industry HR has failed so many jobseekers by not giving everyone an equal chance to prove themselves and then ghosting those who do make it through to interviews,” Hyman said.

“With PredictiveHire, everyone gets a first interview and is treated equally by replying to text-based questions on their phone, without any demographic data being used to make hiring decisions.” 

She said the company’s  goal around candidate experience is to be recognised as the most inclusive recruitment solution at scale. 

The team has done extensive testing on how different groups respond to chat-based interviews, including a broad range of job candidates from a multitude of gender, race and language backgrounds. For all of these groups, the experience has been transformative, as candidates who might otherwise feel intimidated by a video format feel safe and comfortable interviewing  by chat.  The demographics collected on this front are only used in reporting for HR leaders against Diversity and Inclusion targets, and not in any hiring decisions.

“We hold ourselves to incredibly high standards when it comes to creating an inclusive product, and ultimately it’s placing people at the core of what we do, that sets us apart from others, and makes our solution so successful for our customers.”

The Qantas Group, the Iceland Group, Telefonica, Bunnings and other well know trusted consumer brands have seen dramatic improvements on all fronts from applying PredictiveHire to their hiring and promotion decisions.
