CEO Sees Company's AI and Video Platform Transforming Hiring

Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES

HOUSTON, March 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Group, Inc. (OTCQB: RCRT), a leading AI-powered and video hiring platform with the world’s largest network of recruiters, presented to Proactive Investors its vision of the impact of video on the recruiting process.

With approximately 155 million people employed in the U.S. and annual voluntary turnover between 22-27% of the workforce, there are about 34 million people to be hired in a given year. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the average corporate job posting received 250 resumes, which means companies are collectively reviewing approximately 8.5 billion resumes for their open roles.

“COVID-19 will have a lasting impact on many of today’s business and consumer behaviors, which means now is the time to reshape the traditional recruiting process,” said Evan Sohn, CEO of Group. “Just as tools like Microsoft Teams and Zoom have replaced in-person interviews,’s Video platform is the lead-in to improving the sourcing and screening process,” added Sohn. “Now more than ever, we need technology that enhances both speed and accuracy for hiring teams. Video will have that effect.”

As the world increasingly shifts toward a primarily remote workforce, employers are using digital video tools to replicate in-person engagement with employees and candidates regardless of where they’re located. In the world of recruiting, video has mainly been used for late-stage interviews and onboarding new hires. Given that hiring managers’ pain points fall squarely in the sourcing and screening stage, video interviews may be implemented much earlier in the hiring process to drive both efficiency and cost-saving for employers.

The full interview of Sohn discussing the impact of video is available here: Group, Inc. is disrupting the $120 billion recruiting and staffing industry by combining an AI and Video hiring platform with the world’s largest network of over 28,000 small and independent recruiters. Businesses of all sizes recruit talent faster using the platform, which is powered by virtual teams of Recruiters On Demand and Video and AI job-matching technology. Visit
