“We’re very pleased to receive these three additional patents to further protect our industry-leading solution that provides meaningful reference feedback like no other,” said Ray Bixler, CEO of SkillSurvey. “This affirms the unique nature of Pre-Hire 360 and its ability to provide recruiters with unparalleled tools and insights to make better informed, faster and more predictive hiring decisions. It goes hand-in-hand with the scientific, peer-reviewed and published research that has proven that Pre-Hire 360 is predictive of turnover (for cause) and post hire performance.”
