RIVS Reduces Time-to-Hire and Expands Applicant Pools for School Districts

In the face of the teacher deficit, school districts are looking for more ways to save time and money. Recruiting technology, like RIVS, is an excellent way to decrease your average time-to-hire and save hundreds of hours, as well as money, on phone screens, scheduling interviews and in-person interviews.

“RIVS helps us be more efficient and hire better quality candidates,” said Ervin Tujillo, Human Resources Coordinator at Central Consolidated School District. “It’s incredible how it has helped us hire so many teachers in such a short amount of time.”

With the help of RIVS One-Way Interviews, Central Consolidated School District eliminated phone screens, decreased time spent reviewing resumes and applications by 60 percent and reduced the time to fill a position by 56 percent.

Northwest ISD also implemented RIVS’ Live Video Interviews, in order to reduce geographical discrimination and pull more teacher candidates from outside of their district, a huge benefit during the teacher deficit.

“RIVS has helped us expand our applicant pool by allowing those who live outside our area to participate in a digital interview,” said Dr. Kim Caley, executive director of human resources at Northwest ISD.

In addition to RIVS One-Way and Live, the AutoScheduler allows districts to eliminate back-and-forth calls or emails with candidates to schedule their interviews. Instead, teacher candidates can self-select their interviewing times based on recruiters’ predetermined availability, as RIVS syncs with district recruiters’ own calendars.
