We had quite the year in 2014. What started out as a team of two in 2004 has expanded into a team of 200 in 2014. We have had a lot of fun on our journey to our 10 year anniversary and it is only getting started. Check out the highlights of this year:
Digital Disruption was the first event of its kind for HireVue. To stick with our Utah roots, we hosted the event in beautiful Park City, Utah at the five star resort, Stein Eriksen Lodge. It was a sold out event with attendees proclaiming they will return next year. We had incredible presentations by Billy Beane, Jason Averbook, and Shawn Achor.
Every August all Vuers gather in Salt Lake City for our Annual Summer Summit. This three day event was filled with compelling content, exciting entertainment, and phenomenal parties. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary and reflected on the incredible work of all the Vuers who have helped build VueNation.
Not only do we have an amazing team, we have a amazing team that knows how to create extraordinary products. Our release of HireVue Insights resulted in us winning "Top HR Product of the Year" at HR Tech. Huge shout out to our Data Scientist, Ben Taylor, who helped make this possible!
HR Tech, our biggest event of the year, and this time we pulled out all the stops -complete with a new giant star booth. We dominated the event as our CEO, Mark Newman, presented on HireVue Insights and UnderArmour presented on the benefits of digital interviewing.
Everyone has a story to tell and veterans are no different. We partnered with Hilton Worldwide and U.S. Chamber of Commerce and hosted five military base recruiting fairs. Our "Hiring Our Heroes" event in Germany helped more than 1,200 transitioning service members hone their interview skills and connect with employers via our mobile and digital platform.
In February we expanded into Europe and opened our London office. We had great PR coverage during our opening event with nearly 100 guests in attendance. With the exceptional leadership of Darren Jaffrey, we have increased our market reach and are excited for more growth next year.
Due to the power of the HireVue platform, we were able to expand our team quickly and find amazing talent. We hired 85 full-time Vuers in 2014 and we plan to continue to grow in 2015. We hired many key roles that have been a huge asset to our team.
We had three very successful HV Academy events in 2014. HV Academy gives our new hires a chance to meet together in the Salt Lake City office and learn how they can contribute to the success of the company. Check out the team pictures from this year.
Brown Bag Mind Meld:
We had a very fun filled year and a variety of topics during our Brown Bag Mind Meld events. Some of our most memorable presentations were: how to make eggrolls, service projects in Mexico, extreme kite flying, robotics, Muay Thai fighting, crazy long running races, and motorcycle rides through Vietnam. We are excited to see what next year brings.
Not to brag or anything, but we have some pretty rad perks are HireVue. We'll just name a few - fully stocked kitchen, standing desks, gaming area, bike room, pool room, tuition reimbursement, unlimited PTO, daily lunch, etc. The list could go on and on.
HireVue would not be possible without the efforts of every individual Vuer. Thanks for being part of VueNation. Now let's hit the ground running and make 2015 a stellar year!
