HiPeople, a Berlin-based HRTech startup, has recently launched its new AI-powered products to enable talent acquisition teams to create job-specific pre-employment assessments and reference checks in seconds, increasing efficiency and enhancing the quality of hires.
With HiPeople’s AI-powered solutions, users can easily create hyper-targeted assessments and reference checks by copying and pasting their job descriptions into the platform. Their advanced models analyze the content and generate customized reviews and reference checks tailored to each role in seconds.
Speaking about the initiative, Co-founder of HiPeople, Jakob Gillmann, said:
At HiPeople, we’re all about empowering talent acquisition teams all around the globe with pre-employment assessments and automated reference checks to get access to objective data points and allow them to hire the best talent every time they hire.
HiPeople’s AI-powered products are set to revolutionize talent acquisition, enabling organizations to make data-driven decisions and achieve better hiring outcomes. With their commitment to eradicating mis-hiring and unlocking the true potential of talent, HiPeople is reshaping the future of talent acquisition on a global scale.
Adding further about the development, Co-founder of HiPeople, Sebastian Schüller, said:
Everybody has worked with a mis-hire. You all know the colleague that is not in line with the culture. You all know the colleague that can’t perform basic Excel tasks. And that’s what our mission is actually about. Mis-hires have become common, leading to cultural mismatches and subpar performance. HiPeople’s mission is to fix mis-hiring for good on a global scale.
AI is already making a tangible impact on talent acquisition, with professionals using it to source talent, write job descriptions, and manage communications. This technology enables faster and more efficient talent acquisition, improving outcomes. Contrary to popular belief, AI humanizes the recruitment process. It gives recruiting teams more time for meaningful conversations with candidates based on objective information. Candidates also benefit from a more tailored experience, with interview questions designed explicitly for their qualifications.
AI plays a pivotal role in addressing these issues by unlocking the true potential of talent acquisition through AI-driven insights. In shaping the future of recruitment and talent acquisition, it accelerates gathering information about candidates, allowing users to make quicker and more informed decisions.
HiPeople, co-founded by Jakob Gillmann and Sebastian Schüller in 2019, employs a range of modules to accurately represent candidates, using data and science to produce a psychological framework before HR specialists review candidates. The startup offers different assessments and reference checks based on customers’ intentions. It claims that more than 1,000 recruitment teams use HiPeople’s SaaS platform, which was launched in early 2020,
In 2021, HiPeople had raised $3 million to develop its recruitment tool. The investment of this round came from Atomico co-founder Mattias Ljungman’s new venture firm, Moonfire, as well as Capnamic Ventures and Cherry Ventures.
