Lumesse Brings New Efficiencies to Recruitment With Launch of Interview Management Solution

New Offering Streamlines Interview Process to Get the Right Talent Hired More Quickly

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 19, 2015) - Lumesse, a global leader in talent solutions, today announced the launch of its latest recruitment innovation, Interview Management. Part of TalentObjects by Lumesse, a complete Workforce Engagement Platform on the Salesforce App Cloud, this next-generation solution is designed to provide a more streamlined experience for interviewers and job candidates alike, transforming how companies hire the best talent.

Despite being one of the most important aspects of the recruiting process, interviews are also the most complicated; coordinating schedules, asking the right questions and collecting feedback often create a cumbersome, time-consuming process. Factor in time lags between when a candidate applies and when the interview takes place, and candidates may become disengaged or even be offered a job with another employer. And in an era where it's easier than ever to share a negative candidate experience on the social web, it's crucial that companies get the interview process right.

In today's increasingly competitive hiring landscape, companies must act fast to interview top candidates and secure the best talent before their competitors do. As such, recruiters and hiring managers must adopt the technology and strategies that can enhance and speed up the process and lead to a better candidate experience. With the introduction of Interview Management, Lumesse introduces a cutting-edge solution to improve each step of the interview stage, from determining the best candidates and scheduling interviews when it is most convenient to collecting timely feedback from interviewers and reducing time to make informed hiring decisions.

Key features of Interview Management include:

  • Application Reader View: The interview process begins with deciding which candidates should be brought in; Application Reader View consolidates the most important information about each candidate on a single display, eliminating a time-consuming hunt through different screens and simplifying interview preparation, feedback and visibility into changes to a candidate's status.
  • Interview Scheduling: One of the biggest headaches of any interview is scheduling the date and time of the interview. With Interview Scheduling, Lumesse eliminates this complexity, enabling recruiters to schedule interviews at a time when interviewers and candidates will be available. The feature also integrates with any calendar system to provide a clear view of interviewer availability, and the candidate can then view the calendar and select the date and time of their choice.
  • Interview Feedback: The ability to collect feedback following an interview is crucial to making effective, well-thought-out hiring decisions but often adds hours or days to the process. The Interview Feedback module makes this easier and faster than ever, enabling users to create custom fields to evaluate candidates, prompting interviewers with relevant questions about the candidates immediately following the interview. As a result, companies can enforce a structure to ensure timely feedback while maintaining compliance.

"Given the growing challenges employers face as they seek to hire the best talent possible, we sought to streamline the entire process and ensure they identify, evaluate and hire more quickly," said Charles Doucot, senior vice president, Americas and general manager of TalentObjects by Lumesse. "With the launch of Interview Management, we introduce the enhanced features and capabilities that enable employers to do just that. The result is a fast, transparent and compliant approach to interviewing that ensures a more engaging, personalized experience for interviewers and candidates alike."
