Judges were ‘blown away’ by the solution that helps businesses focus on candidates while saving time and money
SHL’s Virtual Assessment and Development Center (VADC) has been recognized as the Best Innovative Tech Solution for Talent Acquisition in 2020 by the HR Tech Awards, powered by Lighthouse Research and Advisory.
The Virtual Assessment and Development Center was designed to provide a faster and more inclusive way to hire, promote, and develop people. SHL customers have reported an overall cost reduction of 20%, and a time savings of 75%, using this solution.
“We built this technology to accommodate for the global nature of talent acquisition,” said Jora Gill, SHL’s Chief Digital Officer. “Organizations have to spend an enormous amount of time and cash to interview top candidates around the world, but our Virtual Assessment and Development Center cuts cost and time out of the process so hiring managers can focus on the person and fit. Even more so, this solution has become essential during the pandemic, as many customers have been forced into a virtual approach to talent acquisition and development.”
SHL’s VADC is unlike any other product of its kind, thanks to the suite of amenities that can be included: Hosting live or recorded video interviews; a document hub that keeps all candidate information in one place; hosting any assessment from SHL’s unrivalled portfolio to identify personality, motivation, skill, ability, and behavior; and it allows the interviewer to tag qualities that stand out in candidates for other reviewers to see. All the analysis is displayed on a scorecard to easily show which candidates are highly rated and best fit for the role.
“This is nothing like the assessments I am used to – [we were] blown away by the capabilities,” said the HR Tech Awards panel of judges.
