Modern Hire Solves Your Most Complex Hiring Issues

The hiring process is often a slow, frustrating endeavor for companies and candidates. Recruiters are overworked and tasked with administrative responsibilities such as scheduling and screening, rather than evaluating, recommending, and selecting talent. Candidates are frustrated by companies’ delayed or lack of response after applying or interviewing. Compounding the problem is that today’s hiring software can’t keep up with the expectations of modern candidates. Hiring teams are under pressure to identify and hire the best talent. They struggle to work across different systems, understand how to collect and analyze data, and streamline routines to reduce friction and improve outcomes. 

Modern Hire solves these problems with a science-driven virtual hiring platform that is rigorously designed to predict success and supports enterprises at every stage of the hiring process and for all types of hires, positions, and levels. Powered by proven science and trusted technology, Modern Hire’s platform transforms business outcomes and builds engaged, qualified, and diverse workforces through the following approach:  

  • Screen: Modern Hire’s sophisticated, efficient, and candidate-friendly screening tools provide modern candidates with personalized, time-saving hiring experiences through convenient text-based or pre-recorded phone interactions. Screening personalizes the hiring experience for candidates from the start, allowing recruiters and hiring teams to quickly identify and move forward with candidates who meet their qualifications.  
  • Assess: Modern Hire’s predictive, scientifically validated Virtual Job Tryout® pre-hire assessments are rooted in scaled insights that Modern Hire has collected from more than a billion candidate interactions across various roles and industries. Career stability text-based assessments enable hiring teams to scientifically predict turnover with an on-demand text interaction in the screening stage of the hiring process.  
  • Interview: Through a range of on-demand and live interviewing solutions, Modern Hire enables hiring teams to conduct any type of interview leveraging dynamically generated, job-specific behavioral, follow-up, and competency-based questions. Modern Hire’s interview technology includes structured rating scales to help recruiters, automated workflows, and candidate self-scheduling tools.  

The results speak for themselves. Modern Hire clients see an average increase of 36% in productivity among hiring teams and 30% in recruiter efficiency –– and as a result, has saved clients $6 million annually through improved recruiter efficiency. Modern Hire has also saved its clients $5.5 million in turnover costs due to seeing an average reduction of 40% in turnover across all of its clients. Additional measurable results include:
