HarQen was honored as a Silver Award winner at the inaugural Recruiter Service Awards (ReSIs) for its digital interview platform, Voice Advantage. The ReSI awards, held in Orlando, FL at the conclusion SHRM Annual Convention & Expo, are the first accolade to focus on innovative service excellence for recruiters. The ReSIs recognize ground-breaking recruiting products and services that help employers achieve recruiting excellence by optimizing the capabilities and performance of their recruiters.
Voice Advantage is a digital interview platform that allows recruiters to review candidates through on-demand and live digital interviews. Voice Advantage enhances recruiters’ review speed and efficiency while providing deeper insight into candidates’ cultural, energy, and communication skills.
HarQen’s Voice Advantage was awarded the honor by a blue ribbon Selection Committee composed of HR and recruiting executives from Hewlett-Packard, Hyatt, Meritage Talent Solutions, New Belgium Brewing, and Outerwall, Inc. The committee reviewed survey results from users of all the nominated products to determine the winners.
As Nan Weitzmann, Americas Talent Acquisition Leader at Hewlett-Packard and a member of the 2014 ReSIs Selection Committee, explained: “The ReSIs recognize those solutions that provide a value-add to improve the recruiter experience. When recruiters are more effective and productive, the hiring process moves more quickly and enhances the overall candidate and hiring experience.“
HarQen CEO, Ane Ohm, was especially excited by the committee’s recognition. “We have received a number of awards for the work we do, but this one means the most. We set out to make recruiters’ lives better and the hiring process easier, and the feedback of our customers confirms our success in delivering on these goals. It’s an incredible honor to have the people who use Voice Advantage cheer so loudly that we were awarded a ReSI.”
