“With Hired, we can see who we’ve made an interview request to, who has accepted our requests, and how we are doing compared to other people on the market. In a competitive market, that helps."
Kenny Koran Technical Sourcing Recruiter
“Hired has been helpful in speeding up the process. The only thing that slows our team down is the speed with which we can put candidates through the process on our side. We’ve got down to about 35 days to hire, from first engagement to acceptance—and we’re hiring for the hardest-to-fill roles with the hardest-to-find skills.”
Graham King Global Head of Talent Acquisition and Enterprise Technologies
