Hays : deploys RoboRecruiter automation to improve candidate engagement and consultant efficiency globally

09/28/2021 | 11:02am EDT

Hays plc, the world's leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional, and skilled people announces the worldwide strategic rollout of RoboRecruiter, an automated chatbot solution, that will greatly benefit its candidates and consultants.

As an industry pioneer in recruitment underpinned with market-leading technology, Hays has reset the conversation again. Having already proven that candidates respond to new automated methods of interaction, Hays has now deployed a RoboRecruiter virtual assistant to help Hays' candidates complete routine tasks, providing a more user-friendly, efficient experience.

RoboRecruiter provides a mobile first solution, delivered by SMS, WhatsApp and email with up to 80% response rates, allowing Hays consultants to engage with real-time data as the robot fast-tracks the most relevant candidates to the front of the right queue

Steve Weston, Chief Customer Officer of Hays plc, said:

"The recruitment industry is at a critical junction in the relationship between the rapidly developing world of automation and the more established world of the human consultant. To thrive in this evolving world, we have continually positioned ourselves at the forefront of the digital evolution of recruitment and are now using these technologies to lead the development of deeper, longer-lasting relationships with our customers. We see RoboRecruiter as strategic in delivering that promise through thoughtful automation so that our consultants can focus on the moments that matter to our customers."

Steve Lewis, Global President of RoboRecruiter, said:

"Hays has led the way for many years in breaking ground for the benefit of the candidates it serves and the consultants who form such a key part of the business value. The admin burden on both Hays Candidates and consultants will be greatly reduced to help them focus on meaningful career conversations."
