- Businesses can reduce CO2 emissions in the interview process by at least 70 percent by eliminating travel to-and-from interviews
- Virtual interviewing through HireVue has grown more than 40 percent in the past year as coronavirus further accelerates adoption of online practices
- HireVue customers have made CO2 savings equivalent to 120,000 trees in the last year alone, from switching to virtual interview practices
HireVue, the global leader in virtual interviewing and assessments technology, has today revealed that by eliminating travel to-and-from initial interviews, its customers have managed to reduce the carbon impact of this stage in the hiring process by an average of 70 per cent.
Analysis from HireVue reveals that collectively, hiring teams and job candidates using its software have saved the equivalent carbon emissions that are absorbed by 120,000 trees in the last year, simply by making virtual interviewing their first port of call. The saving is exponentially larger when accounting for candidates or recruiters that are required to fly to an interview.
HireVue recently delivered its 15 millionth video-based interview after reaching the 10 million mark only 13 months earlier, as more businesses turn to on-demand solutions to reach job candidates in a more efficient and socially responsible manner.
"Ever since we created the world’s first on-demand job interview, companies around the globe have harnessed the power of HireVue to significantly expand their access to talent, reduce time-to-hire, and make better hiring decisions, said Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO at HireVue. “As we look forward to the next 15 million interviews, we’re motivated by the work we're doing to support companies as they adapt to new ways of building their teams to grow their businesses."
The uptake of virtual interviewing continues to grow rapidly with companies increasingly conducting initial interviews online to gain a competitive advantage over competitors and save time for candidates, recruiters and hiring managers. As adoption becomes more and more widespread across all parts of the UK, the impact of interviews on our collective carbon footprint will shrink exponentially.
