The Hiring Dashboard brings transparency to even the most complex hiring process. All stakeholders get a clear overview of the shortlist, can access Candidate Profiles to prepare for a more in-depth interview, and use the candidate evaluation guide to store their notes and comments.

  1. Position mapping - if you haven’t done it yet, read here how to set up a good position profile before proceeding.

  2. Shortlist- invite shortlisted candidates to join to get an overview of their Personal Profile and learn how they fit into the role and how they are likely to influence the team culture and dynamics. Use the Candidate Profile in preparation for the interview to have a more in-depth discussion with candidates.

  3. Interview & evaluate - use the interview and evaluation guide to ensure a consistent and objective process and evaluate candidates based on what matters for the role. The most critical insights from the Candidate Profile are automatically transferred to interview guides.

  4. Compare - after stakeholders have evaluated all the candidates, you can compare our scorecard results. Pay particular attention to areas where stakeholders disagreed - these points might need further discussion or clarification.

  5. Onboard - use the Wisnio onboarding process to help your new hire learn about the values and culture of their new team and help them get off to a great start.

Get to know your candidates with Candidate Profiles

Wisnio allows you to invite candidates to complete their profiles during the hiring process. Use the "Invite" button in the Shortlist column to add the people you want to invite. Candidates have their unique dashboard, and they can't get access to your organisation's information, nor can they see the other candidates.

After candidates finish the surveys, you can open their profile by clicking on "View Profile" under their name. You can see a summary of the candidate based on their competencies, personality traits, and values.

The competency map shows how well the self-evaluation of the candidate is aligned with the requirements you set for the position.

The personality map helps you see if the person adds beneficial diversity to the team. If people are too similar, your team might have a blind spot in a particular area.

The values map helps you evaluate if the candidate shares similar core values to the existing team. Value alignment is generally beneficial as people are more likely to find common ground and feel that it’s easy to work together. Not everything has to be aligned, but alignment with the team’s core values would be beneficial.

"Interview & Evaluate" helps you to conduct structured behavioural interviews

Move the candidates from the “Shortlist” column to “Interview & evaluate”. You can simply click on a candidate and drag them to the next column. After moving the candidate, the Interview & Evaluate option appears under the candidate’s name. Click on it to access the candidate-specific interview guide.

Invite stakeholders to evaluate candidates

To invite stakeholders to participate in the evaluation, go to the Hiring Dashboard and click on the blue "+" button on the upper right-hand side.

Stakeholders will be added as position admins. They will get the same access to the Hiring Dashboard as you. Organisation admins already have access to all positions under this organisation.

Stakeholders do not need to complete their profiles. Stakeholders can be your board members, experts, someone from the leadership team, etc. The goal is for them to evaluate the candidate based on the same scorecard you used and later compare the evaluation results.

Compare the candidate’s scorecard

Once you have interviewed and evaluated the candidates, you can drag the finalists to the compare column. When you have moved everyone you wish to compare, click on “Compare candidates” to see the results.

These results are only visible after completing the candidate evaluation process to eliminate the potential for bias. What you can see on the comparison page is:

  1. The blue exclamation mark shows that the scores given by the evaluators differed significantly. Hover over the exclamation mark to see more details.

  2. Coloured bars show how well each candidate meets your requirements based on the input of all stakeholders who participated in the process.

  3. The total score of each candidate shows the average score of all the evaluations. The score is here to help you decide who has the highest potential to succeed in the role.
