September 2011- A One Step Online Recruitment & Job Placement Service

HRVision is pleased to launch Jobbing, a unique online recruiting service for one step job placement. Groundbreaking in concept and methodology, the patented technology matches candidates to jobs within one hour via a unique candidate filtering system. Geared for the fastest growing job market for sales and service positions, Jobbing significantly cuts the labor intensive and complex process of sourcing and assessing candidates for both recruiter and job seeker alike.

The solution is considered revolutionary in that a highly sophisticated assessment process is facilitated by the job seeker from home via facebook, by the completion of a short questionnaire and 40 minute computerized personality and abilities test. The system then analyzes the job seeker's results and compares them to a sophisticated job position database, each with its own job abilities and specific logistical requirements (location, hours, salary, education). Within one hour, the candidate is privy to all jobs for which he has passed the assessment (job suitability) threshold.

In contrast to current existing job search sites which do a superficial job of matching resumes to different companies, Jobbing facilitates the execution of the most complex part of the recruiting process (high level specific selection) while the candidate is still at home. "It is no wonder that according to current statistics only 10% of job seekers will find jobs using traditional job boards – whereas Jobbing, candidates will have a 70% chance of landing the job most suited for them in the quickest way possible" says Emmanuel Cohen, founder and developer of HRVision's new service. "The implications for both reducing time and cost of finding the best candidates are far reaching and game changing for the entire recruitment market".

Jobbing (jobbing.co.il) was developed by HRVision, one of the leading suppliers in the field of online employee assessment solutions. The company, previously providing solutions to organizations recruiting employees, now adds to its basket of products and services, unique job placement service for job seekers and recruiters alike. HRVision plans to extend this service to the rest of its active global markets.

August 2011- Retail Pro Announces Strategic Business Alliance with HRVision Ltd
Folsom, CA (July XX, 2011)- Retail Pro International, LLC, a global leader in Point of Sale (POS), Store Operations, Merchandising, Planning, Business Intelligence, and Payment Processing software applications for the specialty retail industry, is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with HRVision Ltd., an innovative next generation employee assessment solutions provider. Headquartered in Israel, and known around the globe for their highly predictive tools in the field of employee assessment, HRVision will be complementing Retail Pro's current product suite with their highly accurate cost effective, retail recruiting solutions.
"Even though the economy started recovering last year", comments Mike Bishop, Vice President Business and Partner Development, Retail Pro International, LLC., “according to the NRF Global Retail Theft Barometer 2010 report, shrinkage actually rose in 2010. In fact, in the US, Canada, and Australia employee theft was estimated to be greater than shoplifting losses -- accounting for 35.3% of all shrinkage, or $37.8 billion. Bishop continued, "In the retail segment where loss prevention is crucial to financial viability, Retail Pro International, LLC. recognizes the need to offer our merchants and customers new recruiting technologies that can effectively address the 'integrity in the workplace' issue."
SavvyIntegrity is HRVision’s SaaS tool for the recruiting or loss-prevention division of an organization. It has high sensitivity to theft and fraud and lets recruiters identify potentially dishonest candidates before they become employees. Unlike existing assessment tools (i.e., interviews, references, pen and paper tests) that are not able to elicit precise scoring of integrity levels in the pre-screening process, or that are extremely invasive and can only be used post-event (i.e., polygraph, CCTV), SavvyIntegrity is a highly accurate and non-invasive tool to recognize persons with a propensity to invite losses and damage to organization by their nature and activities.
Utilizing proven and patented technology, the SavvyIntegrity system extends recruiters' ability to immediately identify the level of integrity of candidates. Based on sophisticated algorithmic scoring plus advanced response and tracking measurement, this non-biased, user-friendly testing solution enables the recruiter in overcoming the limits of human intelligence in discerning a lack of integrity on the part of candidates. ”Retail Pro has a history of proffering its customers and business partners products that solve real-world retail challenges, and represent the best-of-breed technology,” said Kerry Lemos, CEO of Retail Pro International, “and, as comprehensive solution providers, we are pleased to partner with a company making new inroads in loss prevention technology.”
Ami Rosenblat, CEO HRVision adds, "Retail Pro customers can now choose to just as accurately screen their potential candidates without the cost and complexity associated with lengthy intensive screening. The 20 minute web based test can be a game changer for retailers, who are hard pressed to stem the critical losses incurred by dishonest employees. "
January 2011– HRVision Announces Fraud Resistant Remote Testing Devic
Developed to meet the growing demand for verifiable online pre-employment testing , HRVision Ltd. has developed SavvyTester, a remote assessment facilitator with a built in mechanism to prevent test taker fraud. "Aimed to reduce the time and cost of in-house pre-employment assessment, online testing is not considered a new technology", says Ami Rosenblat, CEO HRVision. "However, although organizations are technologically ready to test prospective candidates from home, companies have refrained from doing so, for fear of not knowing who actually would perform the test." Designed to diminish these common credibility concerns surrounding remote testing, HRVision has developed a unique device to ascertain if the applicant who shows up at the company - is indeed the individual who remotely performed the test. Informing the candidate of this feature at the outset of test taking, further deters the candidate from having someone else perform the test. Developed to meet continued customer demand for their high level selection technologies, SavvyTester enables utilizing remote testing as a trusted source for accurate job candidate matching.

Looking to leverage the growing multinational recruiting trend, PVL chose SavvyIntegrity as their product of choice from other existing solutions owing to the product's flexibility, ease of use and level of sophistication. Says Craig Gubbins, " We were looking to team up with a company that offers an internet based integrity tool that is clearly one step ahead of all other competing products in its degree of innovative technology and user friendliness. This fits in with PVL's strategy to provide the most advanced integrity testing tools available."

April 2009 – HRVision Develops State of the Art Occupational Interest Test
HRVision is proud to announce the addition of a unique and innovative Savvy Occupational Interest module to their interactive battery of SavvyRecruiter tests. Based on Professor John Holland's theory, this test checks a person's specific level of preference for work in 6 different occupational environments: technical, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and administrative. Unlike other occupational interests tests in which results are derived from a person's self reported written responses, HRVision has leveraged their technological expertise to create subliminally presented test questions on an interactive multimedia platform. This unique presentation of material decreases significantly the test taker's ability to affect social desirability – the act of molding answers to fit required responses. Says Professor Lilach Sagiv of Hebrew University, "HRVision has created a sophisticated but easy to use tool right on their existing assessment platform to be utilized as key factor in occupational interests decision making and relevant job suitability issues".
