Press Release: Pearson TalentLens launches Hire.Me, a mobile recruitment solution for the high volume recruitment market in India
10th June, 2016
BANGALORE: Pearson TalentLens, a global leader in the talent assessment market has partnered with Assessment Innovation, a US based mobile assessment company to create a mobile recruitment solution for the high volume recruitment market in India.
The Hire.Me recruitment solution helps companies reach, engage, assess and shortlist candidates remotely via the Hire.Me native mobile app. The integrated solution allows high volume recruiters to invest time only on qualified candidates thereby reducing the time and cost to hire.
The Hire.ME solution will include a mobile job application, video interview, skills assessments and the Versant English Test for India (VETI), a scientific and automated test to assess spoken English proficiency. The Hire.Me product will incorporate assessments from both Pearson TalentLens (Talent arm of Pearson Clinical and Talent Assessment) and Assessment Innovation. The solution also provides cutting edge enterprise reporting that presents recruitment data in an easy to use format to make hiring decisions and provide data analytics.
“The fast growing high volume Indian job market has caused a shortage of quality talent and candidates that possess the essential skills, knowledge and attitude required for these roles. The Hire.Me solution allows companies to cost effectively recruit in a very competitive environment and within Tier2 and Tier3 cities. Using a mobile solution to reach candidates is critical to competing for talent in this market,“ said Karen Chiang, Vice President of Growth Markets, Pearson Clinical and Talent Assessment.
“Companies using these recruitment tools will be able to efficiently recruit more candidates than their competitors by leveraging mobile technology to reach and engage both active and passive job candidates through job portals and social media,” she added.
“We are excited to partner with Pearson Talentlens and integrate Versant English Test for India within our mobile assessment platform. Leveraging our respective technologies and assessments, will allow us to develop innovative mobile recruitment solutions for the enterprise market,” said Kevin Greaney, CEO & Founder of Assessment Innovation.
Pearson TalentLens debuted the Hire.Me solution at the People Matters Talent Acquisition League Annual Conference and Expo on 9th, June 2016 in Taj Lands End, Mumbai. Conference visitors were given a demo of the Hire.Me mobile app as well as the Hire.Me reporting portal.
