Talview Introduces Interview Insights at HR Technology Conference & Exposition 2022

Talview Introduces Interview Insights at HR Technology Conference
Talview, the global leader for hiring and proctoring solutions, announces Talview Interview Insights, a solution engineered to solve the biggest blind spot in the hiring process – the job interview, at the HR Technology Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas. Talview Interview Insights uses advanced AI capabilities to coach interviewers to become world-class interviewers, one interview at a time. The award-winning Solution brings specific, explainable, and actionable insights into interviewing for organizations to make interventions that enable them to meet their key talent goals.

To date, many organizations define candidate measurement and experience protocols in hiring but struggle to implement and monitor these protocols on the ground. Most interviewers receive little to no training, and there is no mechanism to review their techniques or performance as an interviewer. This inability to control the quality of the interview process results in:
  • Interviews not providing valid analysis, increasing the risk of bad hires
  • Interviews that are not fair or unbiased, adversely impacting DEI goals
  • Good candidates being lost to unskilled interviewers due to a poor candidate experience

After an extensive review of customer interviews and feedback, Talview distilled the issue down to a key requirement: accurately measuring and ensuring the quality of the interview process.

"Our goal was building a framework for interviews that would scale; analyzing the conversations, structure, content, compliance, fairness and experience, while also delivering continuous coaching for interviewers,We believe our new solution will boost the overall quality of any organization's interview process. Talview Interview Insights will be a key addition to any organization that is serious about objective, high quality hiring decisions, as well as improvements in DEI and overall candidate experience."

-Sanjoe Jose, CEO, Talview

Talview Interview Insights combines the power of digital interviewing with the best of AI technologies to deliver a platform that provides continuous feedback to the interviewer, improving their skills, while providing insights to the organization for interventions that can exponentially improve interviewing results. By monitoring for biases in conversations, conformance to organizational policies (from regulatory compliance to DEI goals), topic coverage, gauging question relevance to the role, and more, Interview Insights is a key addition for any company looking to improve the effectiveness of their hiring process.

Beginning with more than 150 candidates, constituting top HR technology vendor offerings, then narrowing the competition to 30 product demonstrations, the judges at the Human Resource Executive are honoring Talview Interview Insights as the winner of a 2022 Top Product of the Year Award in Talent Acquisition. The award will be presented at the HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas.

The interview is used in every hiring process, yet it has remained a blind spot, Like any other assessment, the more objective the information gathered, the better it will predict job success. How can you expect to achieve a replicable, highly efficient interview process without monitoring and training interviewers on a continuing basis? We are excited the judges at HRE agreed and validated our solution with a Top Product award, said Dr. Fred Rafilson, Chief I/O Psychologist, Talview.

Talview Interview Insights is deployed on top of the award-winning Talview Interviewing platform. The Solution analyzes every interview conducted, using machine learning and natural language processing technologies, providing feedback on what worked and what did not for each interview, and summarizing the interview with insights for supervisors and the organization.

Designed to provide a persistent structure to the interview process, Talview Interview Insights monitors for DEI regulatory compliance and unconscious bias in conversations. It determines if the topics being discussed and questions being asked are relevant to the role. Along with providing interview summaries, time stamps for both the transcript and recording, and powerful search capabilities, Interview Insights also provides constructive feedback and comparisons for interviewer performance to others within the organization.

Interview Insights is the latest integrated Solution for the Talview Measurement Platform, AI-powered hiring software that orchestrates everything HR and TA leaders need to hire faster, better, and at scale. Talview provides the digital tools needed to create a flexible, customized, completely digital hiring process designed to reduce time to hire, lower cost of hire, and increase quality of hire.

Recruitment & Retention

Retirement Expectations Evolve as Workforce Ages According to Principal® Survey

Principal Financial Group® | January 16, 2024

The picture of retirement is evolving with more Americans turning 65 in 2024 than any year1 before. According to new research from Principal Financial Group®, expectations around how and when to retire by generation vary greatly – placing increased focus on employee engagement and personalized investment strategies to help improve financial security and retirement readiness. Phased retirement appeals to younger workers who want to retire earlier According to the Principal Financial Well-Being IndexSM, among Americans in the workforce, gradually decreasing hours is the most desired way to retire (52%) and is most preferred by Generation X (67%) and millennials (56%). Baby boomers and Generation Z report similarities in how they want to retire, with nearly half preferring to move immediately from working full-time to not working at all. This echoes the most common approach taken by current retirees surveyed2, a group in which just over one quarter (28%) either transitioned careers or gradually phased down from their primary career. “Attitudes and expectations for retirement continue to evolve, and we expect the desire to approach retirement in phases will continue to grow with future generations,” said Chris Littlefield, president of Retirement and Income Solutions at Principal®. While there are some similarities in how generations want to retire, they have different expectations on timelines and the age at which they plan to retire. The youngest generation, Gen Z, expects to retire at 55 – approximately 10 years earlier than baby boomers (68) and Gen X (64), and four years sooner than millennials (59). Employees prioritize saving for retirement The survey revealed employees are focused on balancing basic needs with long-term savings outcomes against a backdrop of ongoing economic pressures that continue to top their list of concerns. Employees of all generations ranked saving for retirement as their top financial priority, followed by affording basic needs and paying off consumer debt3. "Saving for retirement is the No. 1 financial priority for employees surveyed, which validates that access to workplace benefits and financial wellness programs is helping Americans save for retirement and achieve better financial outcomes,” Littlefield said. “Going forward, increased personalization as well as tailored savings and investment strategies that take into account an individual’s financial goals, lifestyle, health care needs, dependent care obligations, retirement income expectations, and other unique factors will help achieve improved financial security in retirement.” Retention and recruitment of older employees critical for business success Employee interest in phased retirement has added value for employers. Most employers (77%) agree that the knowledge older employees have about their company is crucial to their business’s success. Employers concerned with “having valuable employees retire” are more likely to take actions to either retain them or hire employees who previously retired from other companies. Despite this, not all employers have experience with offering phased retirement. Only 11% of small and midsized businesses4 reported they offer phased retirement job opportunities on a regular basis compared to nearly one quarter of large businesses5. However, interest is there, as 61% of businesses that don’t offer a phased retirement still receive questions from employees about the options. See all results and insights from the latest Principal Financial Well-Being IndexSM (PDF). According to the Alliance for Lifetime Income This wave included a survey of 137 individuals between the ages of 50 and 75 who consider themselves retired or have previously fully retired and gone back to work. In order to be included in the survey sample, employees must work full-time, and their employer has to offer either health insurance or retirement as an employee benefit. Businesses with 2-499 employees Businesses with 500-10,000 employees About the Principal Financial Well-Being IndexSM The Principal Financial Well-Being IndexSM surveys business owners, decision makers and business leaders aged 21 and over who work at companies with 2-10,000 employees and offer either health insurance or retirement as an employee benefit. The nation-wide survey, commissioned since 2012, examines the financial well-being of American workers and business employers. In 2020, the Well-Being Index was transformed from an annual survey to a regular pulse, offering three waves, revisiting questions and measuring sentiment regarding timely issues in the small and midsized business marketplace. In the first pulse of the Well-Being Index in 2022, the employee audience was added to the survey to compare and contrast key sentiment from employers. The survey was commissioned by Principal® and conducted online by Dynata from November 6-13, 2023, with a total of 500 business owners, decision makers and business leader participants and a total of 200 employee participants. This wave included a survey of 127 individuals who consider themselves retired or have previously fully retired and gone back to work. The research report focuses on providing a holistic perspective on key trends and timely issues in the small and medium business market. About Principal Financial Group® Principal Financial Group® is a global financial company with 19,500 employees1 passionate about improving the wealth and well-being of people and businesses. In business for more than 140 years, we’re helping more than 61 million customers1 plan, protect, invest, and retire, while working to support the communities where we do business, and build a diverse, inclusive workforce.

Novo Announces Novo Payroll for Small Businesses, Powered by Check

Check | January 25, 2024

Novo, the powerfully simple® financial solutions platform for small businesses, announced Novo Payroll. Working with Check, the leading payroll infrastructure company that pioneered the ability for platforms to embed payroll into their products, Novo has launched a payroll solution that is fully integrated into Novo’s platform of small business banking, budgeting, and working capital solutions, enabling small businesses to manage their finances from a single platform. “Traditional small business payroll solutions consist of standalone applications characterized by high fees, burdensome cash-on-hand requirements, and either clunky or non-existent integrations between payroll and business bank accounts,” said Michael Rangel, founder and CEO of Novo. “In collaboration with Check, we built a payroll solution that simplifies and speeds up the process of paying small business employees." Novo leveraged Check’s embedded payroll API to build Novo Payroll. With coverage in all 50 states, Novo Payroll streamlines the entire payroll process, from calculating wages to facilitating direct deposits and managing tax withholdings. This provides businesses with a comprehensive payroll solution that not only reduces administrative burdens but also ensures accuracy and compliance with regulatory standards. Novo has conducted a beta of Novo Payroll, and will make the product available to Novo’s more than 200,000 small business customers in the coming weeks. Key features of Novo Payroll include Affordable, flat-rate pricing: Unlike other payroll platforms where individuals have to pay extra for a range of features, Novo offers all of its essential features — including state and tax filings, end of year reports, and more — at $35 per month plus a small fee per worker. Working capital for payroll: Small businesses who may need additional funds for a payroll cycle can apply for Novo Funding, a fast and flexible way to access working capital that’s available exclusively to Novo customers. Once approved for Novo Funding, customers can use the capital in minutes. Next day payments: With Novo Payroll, recipients can opt in to receive their paychecks the day after payroll is processed at no additional charge. Instead of needing the necessary payroll funds days in advance, small business owners simply need to have funds available the day of payroll processing. Built-in accounting and budgeting tools: Since Novo Payroll is fully embedded into the Novo platform, customers can seamlessly set aside funds for payroll, taxes, savings, and more using Novo Reserves. Single- and multi-state payroll: Novo Payroll automates state tax filings for small businesses that have employees in a single state, as well as in multiple states. Human-powered customer service: Novo Payroll customers have access to a range of resources to assist with payroll questions, including the option to call a Novo Payroll expert. “We founded Check with the goal of making payroll easier for as many small businesses as possible. By partnering with Novo, we’re able to reach an even broader set of businesses, giving them the tools they need to save time and money on what is all-too-often a cumbersome task,” said Andrew Brown, co-founder and CEO of Check. “Novo has already burnished its credentials as a leading provider of financial services for small businesses. By embedding Check’s payroll, Novo is able to provide a one-stop-shop for small business financial needs.” Novo Payroll is the latest in a series of products Novo has built for its small business financial solutions platform. Recently, Novo announced a range of updates to Novo Invoices, the company’s free invoicing application that small businesses have used to receive more than $500 million in payments. Novo also announced Novo Funding, offering small businesses a fast and flexible way to access working capital. About Novo Novo Platform, Inc. (“Novo”) is the powerfully simple financial platform for small businesses. About Check Check is the leading payroll platform that pioneered the ability for companies to differentiate and open up new revenue streams by embedding payroll into their platforms. Historically, complex regulatory structures stagnated payroll innovation, making it harder for businesses to create their own payroll offerings. By building on Check’s best in class infrastructure, flexible API, and deep expertise, platforms can launch profitable payroll businesses much faster, and with little overhead or administrative burden. Since Check’s public launch in January 2021, leading vertical SaaS companies and large scale workforce management horizontal platforms have built successful payroll businesses on its infrastructure. Check’s partners collectively serve more than 250,000 businesses and over 4 million employees. Check is backed by Stripe, Thrive Capital, Index Ventures, and Bedrock.
