Automated Candidate Verification for HR

The HR department of KFC in Russia receives more than 15,000 resumes each month. Some of these applications contain mistakes and others are irrelevant to the position. The implementation of Voximplant modules has solved both problems by screening and eliminating bad resumes.

During the recruitment process, the main problem that we faced was receiving several irrelevant applications that wasted our agents’ time. While these irrelevant
applications were processed, a promising candidate’s response would get overlooked. 

We realized the need for saving time wasted on examining each application. Automated calls were chosen as the quickest and least resource-consuming way of validating resumes. 

Implementation of the new technology has resulted in increased conversion: we currently hire 15-20% of all candidates. Furthermore, we’ve reduced the number of agents processing applications and almost entirely eliminated human-related risks. Thus, we’ve lowered recruitment costs in general, which is crucial for our business, since our franchise partners also use this system for hiring.
