Cisco’s primary reason for partnering with SocialTalent was based on a fundamental desire to make candidate experience at the interview stage world-class. Their goal was to upskill hiring managers and panelists with SocialTalent training to improve interview structures, drive a fair and transparent process, and reduce the risk of making poor hires.


After surveying hiring managers about the need for training and receiving a 78% positive response rate, Cisco got down to brass tacks in rolling out SocialTalent learning. They established a project management team to oversee delivery and also deemed it mandatory for any employee who participated in interviews to complete the training and gain the Cisco Certified Interviewer award.
