New Solution Drives Future of Work by Simplifying Virtual Interviewing, Enhancing the Interview Process and Opening Up Employers to Broader Pool of Applicants
HireVue, a global leader in virtual interviewing and assessments technology, is a featured launch partner this week at Microsoft Ignite 2020, Microsoft’s annual customer event, to introduce HireVue Interviews for Microsoft Teams. The solution enables Teams users to turn a meeting into an interview with planned questions that allow hiring managers, team members and recruiters to provide real-time feedback and facilitate faster hiring decisions.
The world continues to adapt to a “remote everything” approach due to COVID-19, and 86% of organizations have adopted virtual interviewing as a way to support their distributed teams quickly, efficiently and safely, according to published reports of Gartner research. With HireVue Interviews for Teams, recruiters can engage with candidates directly through Teams, creating a seamless experience that is focused on finding the right candidates from a broad, geographically dispersed applicant pool.

“HireVue Interviews for Microsoft Teams will empower Teams users to more swiftly and effectively fill job roles with the best candidates for the job,” said Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO of HireVue. “We’re excited to partner with Microsoft to deliver a robust hiring solution that will enable easier collaboration between the recruiter and hiring manager, one that is fully integrated into their flow of work and which helps companies fight bias through a more structured and consistent interview process.”
HireVue Interviews for Teams addresses challenges hiring teams face. Recruiting leaders benefit from a tool that helps to fill openings as fast as possible while reducing bias through structured interviews and promoting inclusion by evaluating all candidates fairly and consistently.
The solution will enable hiring teams to more easily collaborate and capture and share notes during the interview, all from within Teams. Additionally, recruiters will be able to review hiring recommendations from each team member at the end of the interview, enhancing their overall interview experience.
“As our customers reimagine every aspect of work, Teams is a platform that integrates apps and workflows directly into the place work already gets done,” said Mike Ammerlaan, director of Microsoft 365 Ecosystem marketing at Microsoft. “Virtual meetings have become an indispensable way for people to connect, and HireVue’s new integration for Teams will make the interview and hiring process even more effective for customers, as they can conduct these using Teams as the single hub.”
This news complements HireVue’s other recent additions to its hiring platform this year, including app-less interviewing and SMS scheduling, that help to break down technology barriers, make the interview process more accessible and help hiring teams recruit talent quickly and more easily.
