As we continue to work remotely, Video Interviewing can accelerate your recruitment and help hiring managers and recruitment teams interview more candidates and reduce time to hire.
Using video and audio as interviewing tools are great ways to break down the barriers of engaging with talent at scale. Not only can it let candidates express their personality and creativity but also your recruitment team will get a more rounded, dynamic overview - something a CV alone cannot deliver.
In this blog, we look at Eploy’s Video Interviewing toolkit, to make simple how to identify the right talent.
The barriers to Video Interviewing
Often, when we think of video interviewing, we consider the complexities of integrating it into our recruitment platforms, is it the right tool for us? Will we get the buy-in from candidates? What commitment is expected when signing up to a new provider? All potential barriers to a new way of working.
Eploy considered these barriers and delivered a solution in the form of a Video Interviewing toolkit that works directly within the core Eploy platform, providing both video and audio questions at any stage of your recruitment process, built into any form. We’ve designed it for swift implementation, without committing to a third-party vendor for a minimum contract.
With flexible options to ensure a fair process, the toolkit can include time limits, numbers of ‘takes’ or a simple file upload. Video interviewing can also improve your process's consistency since each candidate is asked the same questions, levelling the decision-making playing field. As well as supporting video interviews, you can have audio-only responses too.
As it’s seamlessly integrated into your careers site and process, you’ll provide a consistent, fully branded, candidate experience too.
Eploy Video Interviewing gives the candidate control over the process, enabling them to answer the questions at a time convenient to them. Your hiring managers and recruiters can review the interviews and audio responses and collaborate within Eploy to identify the best talent.
Having this more rounded view of candidates can reduce hiring bias by using standardised questions, so all candidates experience the same interview process.
A seamless journey for all
There is a wide range of systems in use in the modern recruitment function. By opening up these systems, we can enable a more flexible experience for those involved within the candidate journey, recruiters & talent acquisition professionals, HR, hiring managers and, of course, candidates.
Not all employers favour video interviewing, and to some is one of those love/hate topics. Still, it is possible to use it to enhance the candidate experience due to its interactive nature. It allows the face-to-face element without the difficulty of logistics.
At the core of your recruitment technology systems is user experience. Having efficient, effective technology will significantly improve the candidate experience overall and the journey of all those involved.
It provides the best tools for recruiters to find and assess top talent quicker, improving time to hire and cost to hire. Video Interviewing could well be how you can continue to accelerate your recruitment!
