Eight Modern Hire clients will proudly walk across the stage to accept their Candidate Experience (CandE) awards at TalentBoard’s 2017 North American CandE Symposium & Awards Gala. We send warm congratulations and kudos to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Brown-Forman Inc., Colorado Springs Utilities, Humana, Inc., JetBlue, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Sharp HealthCare and Verizon, for their exceptional commitment to an exceptional candidate experience. We’re proud to partner with organizations like these which value the candidate experience so highly they’ve designed their hiring process around it. At Modern Hire, the candidate experience is front and center in every aspect of our service and our voice and video interviewing platform.

Always the Candidate

Earlier this month, we marked an acceleration point in our company’s history with two milestones: The acquisition of GreenJobInterview, and the close of an $8 million funding round. Though our focus is forward, there’s value in a brief look back at our trajectory from start-up to recognized category leader in the video interviewing space.

Our company began because our founders believed the hiring process was broken. Traditional hiring practices were out of alignment with the changing expectations of modern candidates. They weren’t designed to handle large volumes of information or work at the speed of business today. Modern Hire’s answer from the start has been to prioritize the candidate experience. Even as our pioneering technology reduces hiring time and speeds decision-making, it puts people first. The world’s first mobile app for video interviewing, 24/7/365 live support, SMS-text apply, the re-record option, and candidate self-scheduling are just some of the ways we do it.

Our consistent focus on humanity in hiring has been an essential driver of our success.

Alignment on Commitment to the Candidate

With the recent acquisition of GreenJobInterview, we’re poised to deliver on our companies’ shared commitment to candidates on an even broader scale. The dedication of both companies to outstanding service will smooth the transition for new clients as we provide the single solution for engaging better candidates, faster. Modern Hire is already the leading provider of purpose-built video interviewing to industry leaders across the globe, including 100 of the Fortune 500. The opportunity to accelerate quality hiring with an even larger segment of the world’s forward-thinking companies will power our expanded market presence and growth.

Innovation that Serves Candidates and Clients

The resources and investor confidence shown in this recent funding round will support enhanced advancement of our platform. We’re committed to market-driven tech innovation for global businesses who recognize and value the expectations of today’s candidates. As in the past, our new functionality and ongoing platform upgrades will be guided by the candidates’ perspective.

We firmly believe that focusing on the candidate experience is still the best answer to the challenges of today’s hiring. We’re eager to help global businesses set the new gold standard for consumer-oriented hiring that’s responsive to the modern talent market.
