Video Interviewing

Fast Track Your Next Hire With Video Interviewing

By Consult Energy
Share this article

Remember the days when you’d have to wait weeks and weeks for a face to face interview following a telephone interview that didn’t really give you a good enough gauge on who that person is? Luckily, thanks to major advancements in cutting edge video interviewing software, that can all be a thing of the past.

These days, video interviewing is everywhere. Some of the biggest companies in the world, Apple, Facebook and Google to name a few, have been utilising video interviewing software for years to fast track their hiring and give them a better idea on cultural fit. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you. So, if you’ve not given it a try yet – what are you waiting for?

From improving your candidate search to a vastly quicker interviewing process, video interviewing has taken the recruitment world by storm, and its benefits truly are remarkable. Keep reading to find out how video interviewing can transform your recruitment process.

Take control of your brand

You’ve probably heard all about how important employer branding is when it comes to winning the best candidates on the market. But did you know that video interviewing can actually help with this? It’s true, video interviewing is still a bit of a novelty for a lot of people so not only does it make your brand seem really cool and ahead of the curve, it also ensures that their experience with you is quick, easy and flexible from their first point of contact with you.

Candidates will quite often be happier and more receptive to engaging with your brand in general when they aren’t being pushed into taking time off work to attend a covert face to face interview. Not to mention you also get the opportunity to record a standalone message about the business, the role and what it means to work for you. This then gets sent straight to the candidate’s inbox as an added candidate attraction piece.

Enjoy better candidate screening

Brace yourselves, because this is the thing that seems to excite our clients the most: With video interviewing you can do away with first stage interviews. Yes you read that correctly, with video interviewing – your first stage telephone interviews are a little bit obsolete so our clients who make use of The Consult Hub, we get to skip this step entirely.

You’ve probably got a pretty clear picture of what the right person for the role looks like, and even we’ve got to admit that sometimes you can struggle to get a feel for those qualities from a CV and phone call alone. With the power of candidate introduction videos, you get that “bingo!” feeling when you (virtually) meet your dream candidate a whole lot sooner than you would through more traditional methods.

Have complete flexibility

It can be tough to find a big chunk of your day to dedicate to sitting and sifting through your CV shortlist, and if you aren’t in the right frame of mind you might even have to tackle it more than once to properly get a feel for who your candidates are. With video interviewing, you significantly cut down your time reviewing candidates since you can watch the interviews at your leisure and fit it in around your day.

Also, you haven’t got to try and play calendar Tetris to get the interviews booked in in the first place. Since interviewees will often choose to log on out of hours and you don’t need be online at the time of the interview (unless you want to, of course) – there’s no need for you to stay late to accommodate other’s schedules. That goes for your internal team too, with the ability to record interviews you can now share them with managers who weren’t able to sit in at the time. If that’s not a bonus, we don’t know what is!

Reduce unconscious bias

Having a fairer hiring process is on everybody’s list of recruitment priorities. Most people genuinely do strive to have a more diverse workforce, but struggle to break away from unconscious bias based on the minimal information CVs and telephone interviews bring. Introducing video to the mix early on makes the hiring process a lot more personal from the get go, meaning minority applicants always get the same opportunity to express their capabilities

Recruit at a distance

These days with the rise of remote working and businesses finding brand new ways to stay connected, meeting your candidates for a face to face interview may not always be possible. Additionally, depending on your role, candidates who are willing to relocate might be put off by multiple face to face interviews, you can drastically reduce dropouts by making the whole process a breath of fresh air. Whatever the situation, don’t break your back trying to get dates for face to face meetings in the diary that will only prolong your recruitment process, instead you can rely on video interviewing to bring you all together.

About The Consult Hub

At Consult Energy, we pride ourselves on being a modern, forward thinking business.  That’s why when you choose us as your recruitment partner, you get access to our Consult Hub – our very own video interviewing portal supplied by Odro.

From here you can tune in to the interviews while they’re happening and leave comments or prompts for the recruiter, review all your video interviewees and even record your own company intro.
