Mattersight and HireVue Form Partnership to Help Organizations Make Smarter Hiring Decisions Based on Personality, Communication Styles, and Key Behaviors

Unique Combination Enables More Informed, Consistent, and Data-Driven Recruiting Decisions

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 7, 2014) - Mattersight Corporation (NASDAQ: MATR), a leading provider of enterprise analytics, and HireVue, the leading talent interaction and digital interviewing provider, today announced a strategic partnership that provides an additional level of visibility into candidate behaviors based on interview interactions, improving recruiting quality and speed while mitigating risk.

Mattersight's linguistic and behavioral algorithms have reinvented the way customers and employees interact. The company's Predictive Behavioral Routing technology automatically identifies the optimal customer/employee pairing based upon communication styles, personality mapping, and behavioral characteristics -- ultimately increasing the likelihood of a better interaction and overall customer and employee experience.

HireVue's talent interaction and digital interviewing platform lets people tell their story and demonstrate their talents beyond words on a resume or digital profile, enabling high-touch collaboration and insights -- at the speed, quality, and consistency of digital. More than 20% of the Fortune 100 use HireVue to improve recruiting quality, consistency, and efficiency.

The companies' unique partnership will provide added understanding around a candidate's personality, motivation, and engagement through analysis of their on-demand digital interview. That analysis will then provide strategic direction for interviewers during future interview rounds, which will allow them to drill into specific areas as required by the position and hiring organization. 

"Collaborating with HireVue is an outstanding opportunity for Mattersight to help improve recruiting outcomes. This application further demonstrates the breadth and power of our algorithms and analytics to assess personality and behavioral attributes to improve business outcomes," said Kelly Conway, President and CEO of Mattersight Corporation. 

"We are always looking for additional ways we can help organizations reinvent and modernize recruiting," said Mark Newman, Founder and CEO, HireVue. "Our partnership with Mattersight will not only bring scale and better quality to employee and customer interactions, but will also help our customers improve the quality of their digital talent interactions by using data to make more informed, strategic recruiting decisions."
