  • 11.05.2020

Chicago, Illinois – Spark Hire, the leading provider of video interview software for over 6,000+ organizations across the world, recently announced a new relationship with the digital advertising agency, Bayard

Bayard specializes in recruitment marketing, with an emphasis on technology-focused recruitment solutions, effectively combining extensive recruitment marketing experience with the creative capabilities of a leading B2C agency. While working with over 500+ clients with employer brand strategies, career site development, programmatic job advertising, and technology consulting, Bayard began searching for an innovative and effective way for employers to meet candidates virtually and improve their pre-screening process. By working with Spark Hire, they accomplished just that.

Spark Hire’s video interviewing platform provides one-way and live video interviews to improve the HR and recruiting process. Their platform comes complete with a customizable interview experience that allows teams to streamline their candidate screening, improve remote collaboration with clients, and engage more with job seekers. Using video interviewing, Spark Hire customers are able to identify the best candidates for open positions in a fraction of the time.

“By working with Bayard, we accomplish our goal of improving the overall recruitment process by providing clients the ability to screen candidates faster, safer, and more effectively than ever before. We’re thrilled to be working with an agency as tech-focused as we are, with an emphasis on innovative hiring solutions to improve the recruitment process for clients and job seekers alike,” said Spark Hire CEO, Josh Tolan.

“As a technology-agnostic advisor, Bayard frequently looks for industry-leading providers who fit our individual clients’ use cases. There is no one-size-fits-all solution in the recruitment marketplace. We believe that Spark Hire is a great video interviewing option for employers whose needs may fluctuate throughout the year,” added Bayard Vice President, Strategy, Kyle Leigh. 

The new relationship marries innovative technology solutions with experienced talent acquisition, resulting in an overall enhanced customer experience.
