Why companies are using video interviewing

January 16, 2013

Video interviewing is growing in popularity as technology advances and the benefits of such a tool become more apparent. Besides speeding up the interview process and making it easier, video interviewing allows candidates and recruiters to build a relationship they may have not had through a traditional phone interview. By taking the interview a step further and making that connection, your chances of syncing up the right person with your company’s brand are much greater.

Video interviewing is growing in popularity as technology advances and the benefits of such a tool become more apparent. Besides speeding up the interview process and making it easier, video interviewing allows candidates and recruiters to build a relationship they may have not had through a traditional phone interview. By taking the interview a step further and making that connection, your chances of syncing up the right person with your company’s brand are much greater. With that in mind, there are many reasons why companies are using video interviewing so we listed out a few of the top reasons.

• Expedited hiring process: The industry standard time to fill a position is around 45 days. We know from experience that video interviewing can speed up an interview process by allowing the hiring manager a genuine face-to-face interaction, thus cutting back on the number of interviews needed with a traditional phone interview.

• Improved Productivity: Hiring managers can conduct multiple interviews in the time it would take to do one face-to-face interview. They can ask their candidates a series of important questions and be able to see their communication style and personality before the first meeting.

• Increased employee satisfaction: When employees know you are staying up-to-date with the most advanced technologies and investing in the company it will confirm you will invest in them. By ensuring your confidence in them, they will want to work towards the company’s goals alongside you.

• Cost savings: Video interviews allow hiring managers the ability to conduct interviews at the candidate’s convenience. Traveling for interviews can be virtually eliminated, saving time and money for companies and their clients.

With that being said, WilsonHCG is excited to partner with Wowzer and bring video interviewing to our organization and our clients. In an effort to show the talent acquisition community why it is so important, we will be presenting a webinar hosted by Wowzer, alongside Sarah White, HCM Strategy Analyst, on “Video Interviewing Tips to Attract and Identify Top Talent.”
