Alicia O’Brien talks video interviews with PYMNTS

January 22, 2021

When it comes to video interviewing, etiquette is important. Even issues that might be considered trivial, such as the positioning of laptops and phones, according to Alicia O’Brien, vice president of innovation at WilsonHCG. She made the comments during an interview with reporters at PYMNTS about video interviewing and digital identification verification. The positioning of laptops and phones are crucial to ensuring that each party can be seen and heard clearly, O’Brien added.

She went on to explain that many companies had to adapt to video interviewing almost overnight when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and that many organizations will likely retain video interviewing even when the pandemic ends. This, O’Brien noted, is because of many reasons, from the time saved traveling to and from interviews to the information that can be learned from the mannerisms of candidates. 

During the interview, she talked about how businesses can use video tools and facial recognition technology to vet and onboard employees around the world, providing a seamless candidate experience.

Videoconferencing technologies and other digital identity tools can help companies accurately vet applicants and verify their identities,” O’Brien added.
