Waco, Texas / April 18, 2013
InterviewStream client Sodexo was recognized Tuesday at the 2013 ERE Recruiting Conference & Expo as the Recruiting Department of the Year.
The award honors the most unique and innovative approaches to recruiting, highlighting Sodexo’s use of social media and other technology to locate talent and manage relationships with prospective employees. Since 2010, Sodexo has utilized InterviewStream’s groundbreaking pre-recorded and live online video interviewing solutions to identify and pre-screen a larger number of candidates, at a lower cost and faster rate than traditional methods.
According to Sodexo, by adopting such innovative approaches to recruiting, the company has reduced annual advertising costs by $300,000 and cut their cost-per-hire to less than half of the industry average.
“While in-person interviews are typically the preferred method, [InterviewStream] gives hiring managers the ability to interview from anywhere at any time, using just a webcam,” said Arie Ball, vice president of Sodexo’s Talent Acquisition Group. “The feedback on InterviewStream’s customer service from both our candidates and our hiring managers has been outstanding.”
ERE is the leading professional community for recruiters to network and share best practices. ERE provides daily digital content for corporate recruiters and hosts the largely attended ERE Recruiting Conference & Expo and Recruiting Innovation Summits.
“The ERE Recruiting Excellence Awards are chosen each year from an audience of the most progressive, interesting, and dynamic recruiting professionals. It has a rich history and its winners have become widely respected in the field,” said Randy Bitting, founder and chief innovation officer for InterviewStream.
