Modern Hire’s Event Manager Handles Scheduling Challenges

This year, Brandon Hall recognized Modern Hire’s event manager, an innovative capability within our purpose-built interviewing software that helps recruiters elevate their efficiency and hiring results through automated scheduling.

Scheduling interviews is one of the most time-consuming tasks for recruiters. In a third-party independent survey of TA leaders commissioned by Modern Hire, 75% said it took 15 to 60 minutes to schedule and complete just one phone interview, with nearly half reporting it took a minimum of 30 minutes. Even a simple 1-on-1 interview can lead to multiple rounds of phone tag. With complex events with multiple candidates, interviewers and roles, the scheduling challenges and frustrations for recruiters, candidates and hiring managers are magnified.

Event manager helps eliminate these challenges through automated scheduling which surpasses other purpose-built software through its tremendous configurability:

  • It applies to any hiring event, including live video, live phone, in-person interviews and other hiring events like an on-campus job fairs.
  • It accommodates a vast array of hiring parameters so all required functions, seniority levels or departments are accommodated.
