The Arizona Office of the Auditor General serves as an independent source of financial and programmatic information for state and local government entities. Their challenge is to enable agency to expand recruitment efforts to local offsite and out-of-state candidates, allow full evaluation of candidates during remote interviews and implement cost-effective technology to maximize state agency resources. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They implemented Cisco WebEx solutions. Cisco WebEx solutions with high-quality video effectively conveys candidates' body language and demeanor, hosted technology allows for rapid implementation without additional IT resources and online meetings offer stable connectivity and flexible access for remote candidates. The results of deploying Cisco were reduced need for in-person interviews for local offsite and out-of-state candidates and reduced travel time and expenses.
