LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aon Hewitt, the global human resource solutions business of Aon Corporation (NYSE: AON), today announced it signed a multi-year agreement with HireVue as part of a preferred partnership to offer clients its Digital Interview Platform™. The HireVue system is designed to modernize and enhance the recruitment process by improving quality, speed and consistency. This strategic partnership with HireVue means Aon Hewitt can provide clients the HireVue platform as a bundled solution, creating the industry's most comprehensive Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) offering.
Through the HireVue platform, Aon Hewitt works with clients to create online interview guides with scientifically validated questions, ensuring consistency and objectivity across all interviews. The candidate is asked to record responses to the questions via webcam. This "on demand" process gives recruiters the ability to watch, rate and share these interviews with hiring managers across geographies, increasing scheduling efficiencies. Candidates also benefit because the video offers the opportunity for "in person" expression.
"Aon Hewitt clients benefit from a full set of recruitment capabilities, including workforce planning, innovative talent sourcing, customized assessment and expert onboarding," said Erin Peterson, leader of the RPO group with Aon Hewitt. "The HireVue platform provides our clients with enhanced branding capabilities and is the perfect complement to the industry-leading recruiting solutions we offer clients, including those with global workforce needs. This partnership gives our clients a competitive advantage through a robust system bundled in an offer with exceptional value."
Through this partnership, Aon Hewitt clients in more than 130 countries can utilize the HireVue system. Global capabilities include multiple languages (interviewees and evaluators), international webcam service and support, around-the-clock multilingual support, and regionalized interview portals and workflow.
In addition, clients and candidates benefit from access to the recently launched HireVue mobile interview apps. These revolutionary apps enable candidates to learn more about a company and respond to on-demand interviews anytime, anywhere from their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
"The leading solutions and services offered by Aon Hewitt, coupled with its global reach, made this partnership very attractive to HireVue," said David Bradford, CEO of HireVue. "With better insight sooner in the candidate evaluation process, Aon Hewitt's clients will be empowered to effectively identify top talent all over the globe and engage them before their competition does."
HireVue is built on a proprietary, secure, scalable global technology infrastructure. All data is encrypted and stored in a secure, SAS-70-Type II certified environment.
