All too often, the journey to making a hire can be slow, arduous, and expensive. One study found that the time to hire can average up to 29 weeks for skilled workers in Canada. To make matters more complicated, according to an Indeed survey, 66% of employers in Canada say they use multiple recruiting solutions during the hiring process.*

That’s why we’re excited to introduce Indeed Hiring Events, a comprehensive recruiting solution that lets recruiters and hiring managers manage the hiring process—from posting a job to interviewing the candidates—directly on Indeed, with no additional software. This helps employers get to the interview faster, making the process of hiring your next candidate simpler, faster, and more human.

What is Indeed Hiring Events?

Indeed Hiring Events is an integrated hiring solution that helps you automate time-consuming steps in your hiring process such as screening, scheduling and communicating with candidates based on your job criteria and hiring needs. This allows talent acquisition teams to fast-forward to the candidate interview stage, dramatically shortening the time it takes to get candidates into jobs.

By automating the repetitive tasks in the hiring process, talent acquisition teams are able to increase their efficiency and decrease time to hire, saving recruiters up to 9 hours per requisition.**

Employers are also able to reach millions of job seekers on Indeed Hiring Events through the combined networks of Indeed and its sister company, Glassdoor. By combining Indeed and Glassdoor’s reach with recruiting automation technology in one platform, Indeed Hiring Events frees up time for recruiters to spend on the highest-value activities, such as connecting with candidates.

We help you automate time-consuming tasks so you can fast-track your recruiting

So, how does Indeed Hiring Events work?

First, you determine the roles you’d like to hire for through Indeed Hiring Events. These jobs may already be on Indeed, in which case you can add them to Indeed Hiring Events, or you can create a new interview post. Either way, we can help you reach candidates across Indeed and Glassdoor, or you can bring additional candidates from your ATS.

Next, select the dates and times for your interviews, including interview time slots and whether you’d like to cap attendance. Add team members who will be interviewing candidates so they can stay in the loop leading up to the interview.

Then, if you like, you can create simple or advanced applicant qualification questions, or work with us to create a custom assessment. We use your objective screening criteria to ensure that all job candidates who successfully complete your screening are invited to interview for the role. Not only does this benefit you, it also benefits job seekers by ensuring they’re not waiting for weeks to hear back from the employer.

After candidates successfully pass the screening stage, they can then schedule an interview slot. Once they select a time, they automatically receive a calendar invite for the time they choose.

Leading up to the interview, Indeed automates communications with candidates by sending calendar invites, reminder messages, and interview prep materials, boosting the likelihood that candidates will show up to the interview.

All interviews are hosted on our proprietary video interviewing technology

Once it’s time for the interview, your recruiting teams get to do what they do best. Because we helped automate the recruiting tasks leading up to the interview, recruiters and hiring managers now have the time and energy to focus on the interview and connect more deeply with job candidates.

All interviews are hosted on Indeed, and our video interviewing technology is like no other. More than a simple video conferencing tool, Indeed Interview has features that are specifically designed and built for job interviewing. For example, there is a virtual lobby for candidates where recruiters can make announcements if needed, and job candidates are greeted with a welcome message when they check in for interviewing. Recruiters also have the option to download a candidate’s resume while on the call and are able to conduct multiple interviews at the same time.

Our all-in-one solution gives you a better picture of your hiring results

“The experience was simple, fast, flexible, and fair. We hired over 50% of the candidates interviewed!”

– Anthony Ormsbee-Hale,Vice President, People Operations, Civitas Senior Living

Because Indeed Hiring Events is an all-in-one hiring solution—with talent attraction, screening, scheduling, communications, and interviewing all on the same platform—we’re able to more easily access measurable results, which can then be used to evaluate your recruiting funnel and boost your hiring performance.

Once your interviews are complete, we’ll send you a comprehensive summary snapshot including metrics such as RSVPs by source, checked-in candidates, interviewed candidates, and other candidate information to give you a better overall picture of your hiring.
