What are the benefits of video interviewing
Video interviewing offers many significant benefits for recruiters, candidates and hiring managers :
Removes scheduling headaches
Scheduling live and telephone interviews with candidates can be time consuming, slowing down the recruitment process. With automated video interviewing, you simply send the candidate a link and they do the interview when it's convenient for them.
Reduced time to hire
Eliminating the need to schedule interviews, speeds up the recruitment process. Also, being able to see and hear candidates earlier in the process means you can more quickly identify the best candidates and get them in for an interview or assessment centre.
Give candidates a few days to complete their interview, you can then screen out the poor candidates and share the best with your hiring managers. They don't need to make time available to meet candidates, instead they simply login and review their videos.
Lowers cost of recruitment
Video interviews are extremely cost-effective, typically a video interview costs only 20-25% of the cost of a telephone interview or face to face interview.
Because candidates are all asked the same questions, given the same thinking and answer time, your interviews are totally consistent. This consistency also reduces the potential for conscious or unconscious bias.
Improves candidate experience
For candidates, being able to complete their interview at a time that suits them improves their experience. Also, with interviews fully branded and the use of video introduction and video questions, candidates enjoy a consistent more engaging experience of your brand and culture.
In this article, we discuss the full benefits of video interviewing.
When do video interviews work best
Video interviewing works well for most types of job. In particular, graduate roles, sales jobs and customer service roles are ideal for video interviews as they allow you to screen high numbers of candidates quickly and cost-effectively.
For unskilled jobs or roles that don't require candidates to work as part of team or interact with the public, they are less successful.
What can you expect to pay?
The price you will pay can vary considerably, depending on the software provider you choose, what your usage is and what functionality you need. However, as a rule of thumb, you should expect to pay between £3-5 per candidate based on average volumes.
