Some news from two of HR tech’s biggest names.

Modern Hire, the first science-based hiring platform that enables organizations to continuously improve hiring experiences and outcomes with trusted science and technology, today announced the general release of Automated Interview Scoring (AIS). AIS is an on-demand video interview feature that uses AI to evaluate candidate responses, providing recruiters and hiring managers with recommended scores during the review process to ensure a more fair, unbiased and complete hiring experience. 

Modern Hire’s AIS helps interviewers avoid unconscious bias by providing a standardized, consistent and objective selection methodology that allows them to focus only on the job-relevant aspects of candidates’ responses. Using proven Industrial Organizational Psychology methods and cutting-edge AI, including natural language processing (NLP) and deep learning, AIS reliably replicates the judgment of professionally trained experts. Modern Hire’s AIS models were rigorously developed and found to have extremely high levels of accuracy replicating expert raters, with correlations exceeding .8.

BambooHR, the HR software company has added four new marketplace partners that will enable customers to advance capabilities as companies continue to adjust flexible working models to accommodate remote and hybrid work.

  • Hireflix enables one-way video interviewing in BambooHR so users can save hundreds of hours, standardize pre-screening and make better hiring decisions, all with the most user-friendly and simple user interface both for the company and candidates.
  • Spark Hire empowers users to send candidates one-way video interview invitations directly from BambooHR by updating a candidate’s status. When an interview is completed, users can access it from BambooHR with a single click.
  • Leapsome enables managers and employees to work at their best with a range of performance management tools, including goal setting, real-time feedback and 360º reviews. 
  • Pyn powers fast-growing companies that want to proactively drive their employee experience.

pymetrics, a leading Talent Matching Platform, announced the availability of API features to bring predictive hiring data, backed by the power of ethical AI and behavioral science, to more organizations.
