HireLogic has established a new standard for interviewing candidates and filled a gap in the hiring process. The solution uses conversational analytics and AI to listen to interviews and provide objective candidate insights for better hiring decisions. Simply by inviting HireLogic to listen to any in-person or remote interview, hiring managers or recruiters can go beyond transcriptions and note-taking to understand how much of the job description the conversation covered, detect candidate attributes such as aspirations and leadership experience, and even detect potential question bias for coaching and compliance.
“I have experienced first-hand how much time and money organizations spend interviewing candidates, the lack of objective data being gathered, and the impact quality of hires has on performance,” said Joe Landy, lead Series A investor and former co-CEO of Warburg Pincus. “We are already seeing the transformational impact that AI and GPT3 is having, and expect to see this affect all sectors including HR. What Gong did for sales intelligence, HireLogic is doing for interview intelligence in a similarly large market, and their customers are already experiencing the benefits. I look forward to working with the HireLogic team to transform interviewing and capture this opportunity.”
HireLogic has developed advanced AI and machine learning capabilities focused on the hiring domain, using a combination of proprietary and third-party AI. The solution goes beyond general transcription offerings, using models trained on thousands of interviews to recognize job functions, intent, and candidate characteristics. In addition to supporting platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet, HireLogic offers a companion Web app that can listen to any in-person or telephonic meeting, providing full coverage for all interview modes. To prepare interviewers, HireLogic can also auto-generate questions for any position, leveraging a combination of OpenAI (GPT-3) and HireLogic capabilities.
HireLogic customers can expect immediate benefits in the form of increased productivity, with automated insights that enable faster decision making and increased candidate engagement. HR teams and hiring managers can augment decisions with objective data, avoid memory bias, and detect potential non-compliance. HireLogic does not stack rank candidates, screen them, or otherwise replace human decision making, to minimize other forms of AI bias.
“Since launching HireLogic, our recruiting teams have seen rapid gains in productivity, visibility, and accountability in the interviewing process,” said David Benko, Managing Director of Professional Services at BlankFactor, a 2022 top 500 fastest growing company in the Inc. 5000. “All groups have seen quick adoption of HireLogic, thanks to its ease of use and valuable data the platform provides from interviews, which we didn’t have before.”
