Greensboro, NC – July 14, 2020 — FirstPoint Background Screening Resources, Inc. (FPBSR) is pleased to announce a partnership with OutMatch a Talent Intelligence Platform that helps companies hire and develop great employees to provide OutMatch’s Video Interviewing solution. The Video Interviewing solution offered by FirstPoint aids companies in the shift to support business continuity via the shift to virtual recruiting and the hiring of fully-remote employees.
As the impact and uncertainty of the global health pandemic accelerates, business leaders are responding in the moment, instituting new workplace policies, such as work from home and social distancing, with very little preparation and advanced notice to employees. While health and safety of employees is top priority, leaders are facing another daunting challenge: keeping their businesses moving forward and minimizing disruption as best they can.
“Our goal is to keep the human side of business strong and organizations moving forward with their recruitment and hiring needs,” states M. Scott Hall, Senior Vice President of FPBSR. “Assisting companies with interviewing and hiring the people they need requires new technologies and a new way of recruiting,” Hall continues. Global health concerns are forcing companies to change their approach to hiring, and even halt hiring in some cases. By supporting the shift to virtual hiring, we’re doing our part to keep employees and candidates healthy with as little disruption to the business as possible.
To help organizations maintain some control over the wellbeing of their employees while continuing to hire, FirstPoint and OutMatch are offering their full Video Interviewing solution free for 60 days. This solution supports virtual hiring in many ways, enabling talent teams to:
- Qualify, interview, and evaluate candidates 100% virtually, if needed
- Minimize travel by identifying your best candidates to bring on-site
- Maintain the human connection, especially when hiring is done remotely
This offer is available to all organizations and requires no commitment.
“This is our way of helping our communities through a time of crisis,” said Robin Stenzel, Chief Solutions Officer at OutMatch. “Our mission is to match people with purpose – not only in times of health and abundance, but in trying times as well.”
