Celebrating HireVue at the Living Planet Aquarium

How often do you get to see a real life Ariel and get to take pictures with her? On Saturday, January 14th, we hosted our HireVue company party at the Living Planet Aquarium, Bonus points! The event was held in a conference room that looked into a shark tank. 

The event packed day included a live animal encounter where children could pet armadillos, snakes, and birds. We even had a professional balloon artists who created any item requested. Think Mickey and Minnie mouse, butterflies, mermaids, dragons, you name it!  HireVue also provided a buffet breakfast of french toast, eggs, sausage, and fruit to all guests. The morning concluded with free admission into the aquarium to see all the animals. 

Thanks to everyone who came and made the day special.

We look forward to an awesome 2017!

Cheat Codes For Charity: 24 Hours of Non-Stop Video Gaming

Four years ago a group of friends decided to use their love of gaming to do some good. Inspired by others like the Desert Bus for Hope (https://desertbus.org/) and Child's Play Charity (http://childsplaycharity.org/) our group of gamers organized an annual event, lovingly called Cheat Codes for Charity. Over the last 4 years we have partnered with both Child's Play Charity and Extra Life to raise money for children in hospitals. Helping to highlight how video games can be a positive light in a child's life as they go through a very rough time of their lives. 

VueAntion

In our first three years, we helped raise over $5,000 in donations for both Child's Play and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This year our goal was to raise $2,000 during the annual Extra Life event for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This event asks that gamers spread awareness of the cause and play video games for 24 hours straight. These gamers will often stream their gaming sessions online so other's can watch, get involved, and contribute to the cause. This year we had around 30 gamers join us at HireVue headquarters in South Jordan, Utah. You'll find a lot of our streamed event available on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxN7h1TPEctGQXKHSLyJl9Q). 

"The Full 24 Hour Crew - Yes we are pretty tired."

"The Full 24 Hour Crew - Yes we are pretty tired."

The support for our event was amazing. As donations kept coming in we realized we needed to raise our our goal from $2000 to $3000. Our friends and family and other gamers we connected to online came together and we absolutely crushed our goal. Raising $4,004 in direct donations, all of which HireVue matched bringing our grand total to $8,008. You can see the results of our team here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.team&teamID=29619

When we started this a lot of the group was just beginning to have kids. As time passed this event meant more for us, but for one of our members, Chris Romriell, it has become very close to his heart. For those of you that don't know, Chris' 2nd son Treyson was born over a month early and had some complications that brought him to the NICU at Primary Children's Hospital (a hospital inside the Children's Miracle Network). He spent the first 3 weeks of his life at PCMC and 10 months later Treyson had gone through 6 surgeries (2 emergencies) as well as several other long stays up at Primary Children's. Treyson turned 4 a little over a month ago and Chris can't explain how much he appreciates the support HireVue and Primary Children's Hospital has given his family through the years.

We are very happy that we were able to raise these donations for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. When we received the below email from Extra Life when we had passed the $5000 mark, it really put it into perspective. "A chemotherapy treatment" or "heart monitor" singular. We can never give or raise enough, there is always more to do. There are always more children in need. So we hope you join us next year or find your own way to help the cause.

Veterans Day 2016 - Thanks to All Who Serve

"What's Veterans Day?" people ask. "Is that Memorial Day?" 

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, many Americans confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day. What's more, some Americans don't even know why we honor our veterans on November 11. Here is a brief history so we can remember our service members properly.

Veterans Day or Armistice Day was set as a legal holiday after the end of World War I. After the end of World War II and the Korean War, the holiday was officially named Veterans Day to honor all soldiers who have served. 

So what's the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day? Memorial Day honors service members who died in service of our country. While Veterans Day is a day to thank and honor our living veterans who served and continue to serve honorably.

“When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep?” -George Canning
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” -Elmer Davis
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy

HireVue would like to thank all who have served and continue to serve our country today. And we especially want to thank the veterans at HireVue. You know who you are and we applaud you for your service and sacrifice for our country. 

Thank you.

Happy Halloween from HireVue!

We take Halloween very seriously at VueNation. It' only makes sense for us to bring in a catered lunch to complement our annual HireVue Halloween costume contest. And this year, the creativity was off the charts (think Pokemon and the cast of Gilmore Girls).

Inside VueNation's Marketing Offsite by Nicole Frisbee

Do you like heights or being claustrophobic? Then this trip is for you! But in all seriousness, it was an unforgettable experience and I’d love to canyoneer for a hobby. If you love adventure, read on.

Sunday evening the marketing team packed up their gear and met up at our designer, John’s house and drove down south to Hanksville, UT. We arrived and set up our tents, the trailer, and camping chairs, and sat around the fire until bed time. The next morning we all packed our snacks, water, and climbing gear and hiked/climbed up a huge rock face to get to the top of the slot canyons. We geared up, got clipped in, and rappelled down the first rappel spot. Since it was our very first one, a lot of people were naturally terrified. But we all made it down safe and sound.

After a couple more rappels, we come to a spot where we had to shimmy our bodies across a small ‘canyon’ - hands on one side of the gap and feet on the other side - and jump down at the end. Almost everyone got across safely…. Erica jumped down a little too soon, and twisted her knee. It did not look good, we were a little worried and thoughts of having her airlifted out of the canyon were racing through our minds. Luckily she could put some weight on it, but we still needed to assist her with going down at least a few more rappel spots. John and Blake were experienced canyoneers and knew how to belay her down the canyons safely. We all helped each other crawl under and over suspended boulders, wade through waist-deep mud pits of doom, and watched each other as we scaled down 150 foot cliffs.

Scot, the boss man, made us the most amazing dutch oven breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and dessert. The last night we watched Cliffhanger, which is about a rock climber who gets into a pickle with some bad guys after his friend’s girlfriend died when her climbing gear broke. Such a fun movie to watch before you go rappelling!

The last day after we did Hogwarts Canyon (how cools is that name?!), we stopped off at Goblin Valley. Unfortunately it was a little cold and we were on a time crunch so we couldn’t go explore the hoodoos, but it was still awesome to see them from a distance.

First Annual HireVue Donut Run

We ate too many donuts.

On Wednesday, September 21st we held the First Annual HireVue Donut Run. HireVue's Ambassador of Regrettable Activities, Evan Farrer describes the event, "For the first 10 minutes the athletes will consume as many donuts as they can. Unbiased, but silently angry, judges will carefully ensure that the entire donut is consumed and ingested before the eating time expires. At this point, the running leg will begin. A one minute head start will be granted to each athlete for every donut they personally consumed. Each athlete will then run a 5K and the first athlete who crosses the finish line wins. After the race, all athletes and spectators will return to the office prepared to endure a full year of trash-talking by the winner." Big shout out to the Donut Run winner, Byron Clark.

A Behind the Scenes look at #WorldHiringDay at HireVue

With help from our customers, HireVue hosted the world's largest hiring day. People from around the world introduced themselves to one of our participating companies - using digital video. The coolest part about it? No Resumes. No Phone Tag. Just people. Our team came together for a day of fun. We had breakfast, lunch, and root beer floats. Together, HireVue was able to celebrate what we love most, people having a shot at telling their stories.  #WorldHiringDay was a blast!
