HireIQ’s innovative use of machine learning and predictive analytics effectively predicts which job candidates are more likely to remain employed and perform well once on the job. The company’s approach uses pre-hire assessment data from virtual interviews, tests and assessments, coupled with observed performance outcomes to identify the job candidates that are most likely to succeed.

“Employee retention and job performance are important for all organizations, but especially for companies that run customer service operations, where attrition is a particularly vexing problem,” said Todd Merrill, HireIQ’s chief technology officer. “Our ability to reliably and accurately predict those job candidates who are likely to be excellent performers have significant implications for these companies in terms of profitability, customer satisfaction and employee engagement. HireIQ is the only company in the talent acquisition market that has adopted such an approach.”

HireIQ transforms the talent acquisition process for customer-facing organizations by linking stakeholder-observed business outcomes, such as operational performance and retention with the results of pre-hire digital interviews. As a result, companies improve their hiring decisions, reduce the critical time-to-fill interval, lower recruiting costs and increase employee retention and performance.
