About Cisco

Cisco is the worldwide leader in IT and networking. We help companies of all sizes transform how people connect, communicate, and collaborate. Cisco Systems, Inc. is an American multinational technology conglomerate headquartered in San Jose, California, in the center of Silicon Valley, that develops, manufactures and sells networking hardware, telecommunications equipment and other high-technology services and products.

Problem

Cisco’s world class product development team needs no introduction, recruitment process involves thorough evaluation of knowledge and skills of a candidate. After a short telephonic discussion by the recruiter, he/she is set for an interview with the member of a technical panel. Over 70% of the rejections happen in this round of interview and the reason is because of the cultural and technical misfit. Lot of time is wasted for the Technical team and recruiters. Time taken in filling up the positions is long.

Solution

EYardstick helped CISCO in administering Knowledge, Skill tests in combination with Ondemand Video assessments. Tests were created by EYardstick team specific to the job role and after getting sign off from the stakeholders. Candidates whose resumes are shortlisted go through this test and the test is taken by the candidates from anywhere anytime. Recruiters automatically get notifications post the test completion by a candidate, Based on the cut off scores set for the test, profiles along with the EYardstick report was sent to Technical panel for further evaluations.

Benefits

  • Technical team even before talking to the candidate knows the strengths and weakness and his approach towards solving real time issues recorded as video answers.
  • Percentage of interview rejects became drastically low.
  • The conversion from EYardstick test shortlists to final selects was upto 100% for some of the roles yielding a lot of savings in effort and time for both Hiring Teams as well as Technical Teams.
  • Usage of EYardstick for evaluation added a niche technical touch to both the sides, Candidates as well as CISCO meeting the expectations of a candidate about the Networking giant.
