About The client

about RemiPeople

Challenge

Traditional recruitment processes are often time-consuming and have flaws. They include interviewers' biases, absence of standard assessment criteria, necessity to enter candidates' data manually in the system, lengthy and complicated screening procedures, especially if many people apply for a position. License-based Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) require considerable investment and are not affordable for small businesses. The Blackthorn Vision team had to create a non-committal, pay-as-you-go solution that would cost-effectively address all the recruiting pain points.

Solution

Recruiters spend a lot of time reviewing nonessential information in a CV. In contrast, RemiPeople offers a customizable online assessment tool that selects a set of skills necessary for a particular position. Moreover, it helps to discard applicants who are not genuinely interested. The solution provides comprehensive information on the vacancy to anonymous candidates on the initial stage questionnaire. Thus, they can see if it's a good match for them and withdraw from the hiring process if it's not. The answers are scored and ranked to shortlist candidates for the next stage.

The second stage is an aptitude test - the questions focus on what the candidate would do in a real-life work scenario. Then it followed with structured interviewing, which is twice as effective as the traditional. The software helps design interview questions and ideal answers and a scoring system to rank the candidate quickly and easily.

All the scores are automatically added to the leader board visualizing the candidates' performance at all stages, which makes the hiring decision completely objective.
