Candidate Experience Presentation

The candidate is guided through the assessment process by a virtual recruiter, an avatar, which asks questions that are set according to the position to be filled, as in a classic recruitment interview. A camera and a microphone capture in-real time his gestures, smiles, words and the tones of his voice. These data are stored and analyzed. Algorithms based on the analysis of the body language evaluate the physical presence, the confidence... The solution also transcribes the oral answers into text and identifies keywords related to the position. Once the interview is finished, the candidate answers a multiple-choice questionnaire, which completes the assessment. The candidate then receives a detailed interview report with practical advice, based on a joint analysis of video & audio recordings and answers to the personality quiz.

Concretely...

A new candidate experience and pre-employment tests which represent a powerful way to assess a candidate’s aptitudes, job compliance, and performance potential before they are hired. The Digital Room doesn’t replace humans but it is used as a first step to recruitment. It delivers custom assessments by blending the power of artificial intelligence with the knowledge of ManpowerGroup in terms of assessments. This is done in a single video interview that lasts about 10 to 15 minutes.
