Our Story

Back
Our founders, Mike Russiello, Bill Lake, and Shoa Appelman, have a history of product innovation in the employment testing industry. In 1998, Mike and Bill left computer services firm EDS (now HP) to start Brainbench, an employment testing company. Brainbench pioneered several head-turning innovations including online computer-adaptive testing, virtual test centers, online skills certification testing, multi-dimensional pre-hire testing, and corporate skills benchmarking.
Brainbench grew rapidly. Shoa joined in 2004, and the company was acquired in 2006 by a private equity firm. Post-acquisition, Mike and Bill remained as senior managers for several years.
In 2009, the team launched ClicFlic Interactive Videos, Inc. as a simulation technology and services company. The company created interactive, simulation-based eLearning programs, and assessments for large corporations and government agencies.
It soon became clear there was significant demand for high quality pre-employment assessments. So, after several years of product development, the company changed its name to HR Avatar and re-entered the employment assessment industry in 2014.
Since then, HR Avatar has grown steadily and now serves thousands of customers in more than 100 countries. Equally notable, the founders have continued their tradition of industry-changing innovation, including:
  • 2014 - 'Day in the Life' animated simulation-based, job-specific assessments.
  • 2015 - Automated writing analysis using artificial intelligence (AI).
  • 2016 - Optional Candidate Career Interest Inventory for Candidates FREE post-test.
  • 2016 - Phone-based spoken language assessments incorporating AI-driven 'Voice Vibes' analysis.
  • 2017 - Remote Proctoring using image capture and AI-driven facial recognition for unproctored testing.
  • 2017 - Web-based spoken language assessments incorporated AI-driven 'Voice Vibes' analysis.
  • 2017 - Candidate feedback reports designed for selection instruments.
  • 2018 - Virtual Video Interviews - fully-integrated with traditional assessments.
  • 2018 - Build your own video interview with AI-driven voice analysis and personality evaluation.
  • 2019 - Virtual Chat-based Customer Service assessments with AI-driven scenarios.

What Our Customers Say
"The software is affordable for small to midsize companies. I also like that the results are immediate and we receive suggested questions for the interview to probe further the areas of concern. I have yet to find a test that didn't match a role I was interviewing for and the identification software is terrific."
Suzanne Elliot, VP HR, PDI
"This software offers all the positions and personality testing to help us to build a cohesive team. It is our company policy now that all applicants must complete the HR Avatar testing set up for that particular position prior to offering a position. This has significantly helped us to employ the right people and reduced our turn-over."
Suzanne Fioritto, Executive VP, VenTara Corporation
"This software has helped our recruitment process big time since everything is digital already and doesn't need any papers. It is also very friendly for applicants as well. HR Avatar is very helpful in screening applicants as it can determine where applicants are having a hard time dealing with and it also shows the .potential risks upon hiring the candidate. It makes the job of HRs easy and efficient"
Joshua Matthew Realica, HR Assistant, Filinvest Alabang, Inc.
