Interview Scoring Improves Candidate Quality and Recruiter Calibration

HireIQ is building a world-class technology company focused on developing predictive analytics applications that revolutionize the hiring process for organizations worldwide.

HireIQ Solutions, Inc., the visionary talent acquisition company that uses predictive performance technology to improve the hiring and recruiting process for customer-facing organizations, announced today that it has been selected to present at Venture Atlanta, Georgia’s premiere event connecting technology innovation and investment capital. The annual two-day conference will be held October 17-18, 2012, at the Georgia Aquarium. Now entering its 12th year, Venture Atlanta and its earlier iterations have assisted in helping companies raise close to $1 billion.

HireIQ joins nearly 40 other innovative companies, representing diverse technologies with many of the selected companies coming from Georgia’s top-performing business sectors, including information security, financial technology, communication services, health IT, logistics and mobility.

“Venture Atlanta is the premier investor event in Georgia and we are honored to be chosen to present in the Venture Showcase,” said Dan Drechsel, CEO of HireIQ. “HireIQ is building a world-class technology company focused on developing predictive analytics applications that revolutionize the hiring process for organizations worldwide. Our current solutions – InterviewIQ and LanguageIQ – have been adopted by numerous customer service operations with remarkable results.”

HireIQ helps companies improve their hiring decisions, reduce recruiting costs and increase talent performance using its innovative virtual interviewing technology. HireIQ’s products use rich media, web and voice response technologies to automate the early stage interviewing process, resulting in better-qualified candidates presented for hiring consideration much more rapidly than traditional recruiter-led screening and interviewing. Completed candidate interviews are recorded and stored so recruiters and other stakeholders can assess an applicant’s knowledge, interpersonal style, enthusiasm, energy and attitude. Employees hired using HireIQ’s suite of talent performance optimization products demonstrate increased speed to competency, reduced attrition and improved sales and service performance.

Presenting companies and attendees will have opportunities to network with regional and national venture capitalists and investors, as well as Georgia technology entrepreneurs and senior business executives. Other activities during the event include a Venture Atlanta alumni panel and dynamic keynote presentations by Steve Case, co-founder of AOL and chairman and CEO of Revolution; Phil Wickham, CEO and president of the Kauffman Fellows Program; and Jonathan Bush, co-founder of athenahealth.

“I highly recommend Venture Atlanta for any startup,” said Margaret Martin, CEO of Merlin Mobility, Inc., a past presenting company. “The opportunity to meet not only investors, but advisors and future customers, is unparalleled. Venture Atlanta offers a rare opportunity for national exposure, while accommodating the startup budget.”
