What is Hired.com doing to support skill-based hiring over pedigree? 

Technical Assessments

After the initial phone screens, Hired assessments enforce skills-based hiring by helping employers remotely evaluate applicants’ technical skills remotely with customizable relevant, valuable, and consistent questions. Run programming challenges in real-time or asynchronously, always with a complete coding playback.

Hired assessments help reduce hiring bias by leveling the playing field and standardizing evaluation processes. It also helps free up tech recruiters and hiring managers from live proctoring.

Assessing asynchronously makes a better experience for jobseekers by accommodating their schedules and reducing the anxiety of in-person testing. Plus, employers may evaluate greater numbers of candidates across multiple time zones. Jobseekers showcase their skills while employers get the insights they need to find a better fit, faster.

DEI Tools for Hiring

The platform includes several matching features to mitigate all forms of bias. 

  • Prioritize outreach to underrepresented talent, without removing relevant matching candidates. Updated filters easily surface these jobseekers to recruiters and hiring managers. 
  • The Salary Bias Alert feature addresses wage equality goals by notifying employers if they are offering a lower salary than they typically do for a given job role. This helps eliminate the impact of bias on a job offer and holds employers accountable.
  • Bias, even when it’s not conscious, can impact sourcing decisions. Activating Bias Reduction Mode removes jobseekers’ profile pictures and names so employers focus evaluations solely on skills and experience.
