Korn Ferry Launches Korn Ferry Recruit, A ‘Nimble’ Solution For High-Volume Recruiting
High-Tech, High-Touch Features Include Virtual Interviewing and a Candidate-Care Bot For 24/7 Support
Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) announced it has launched Korn Ferry Recruit, “Nimble,” a fully integrated, virtual technology solution for high-volume hiring. Nimble uses best-in-class AI, along with the proven recruitment intellectual property of Korn Ferry. The new solution is designed to leverage a client’s brand, shifting to a candidate-driven experience by sourcing, attracting, assessing and selecting the right people for the job at an affordable cost-per-hire.
Nimble starts at the beginning of the high-volume hiring journey by first creating success profiles that identify candidate attributes needed to be successful in a particular job. This ensures the right fit for a role and increases chances of longer tenure once the candidate is on the job.
It then creates a sourcing strategy using AI to find the widest pools of internal and external candidates. There is a text to apply feature and an AI Assistant (a chatbot named Juno) provides 24/7 candidate support, where candidates are guided through each phase of the process, having their questions answered and being updated as to where they stand in the process.
Candidates that meet the skills requirements are moved into an interview that leverages Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tools to simulate an interview with a recruiter. In the virtual interview, candidates are quickly assessed answering questions which help determine if they have the right skills for the job (e.g. managing ambiguity, communicating effectively).
Based on the results, top candidates are stack-ranked and short listed. They then are automatically scheduled for hiring manager interviews with the help of the AI assistant. Background checks are also automatically initiated, and references are checked. Offers and contracting are managed as per the client process.
“Nimble is an efficient and effective tool for organizations that need to quickly ramp up high-volume hiring,” said Jeanne MacDonald, President, Korn Ferry Global RPO Solutions. “Nimble not only helps widen the net of qualified candidates, it creates success profiles that ensure the people with the rights skills are short-listed. Nimble offers a positive candidate experience in a virtual environment that increases the chances the candidate will accept an offer and stay on the job.”
