The Challenge

The company faced the challenge of consistently running recruitment campaigns to attract top industry talent while needing to streamline their talent acquisition process. The existing shortlisting process involved cognitive assessments and phone screening, but the company sought a modern and efficient solution to reduce time, cost, and unconscious bias in the early hiring stages. Furthermore, with a global presence and hundreds of open positions, the company required a fully remote solution to improve their net promoter score and ensure the quality of hires. Overcoming these challenges and finding a solution that could meet their unique needs proved to be a significant endeavor for the company.
