These times, almost everyone has access to a mobile device or a computer
with a webcam and an internet connection. It would be a shame if we
didn’t make use of this situation. By implementing online video
recording via webcams and mobile devices you allow cost-efficient and
time-reducing job application processes.
Benefits of using video recruitment software
Why? First of all, you save time by letting applicants do all the
paperwork. They fill out an online form so your employees don’t have to
Next is the amount of information video offers. Video is richer than
text. Up to[80% of communication is body
language](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_language "body language").
You can get valuable insights on candidates that wouldn’t be available
through traditional methods as phone calls or written applications,
making it easier to select the correct personas upfront.
Another benefit is the option of online quality assesment. Video answers
can provide an online quality assessment for specific skills and
competences of your candidates (e.g. languages.)
Cross border recruitment becomes much more convenient. Because candidats
don’t have to travel vast distances in order to apply, it becomes easier
and cheaper to get international talent to sign up for a job
Another benefit that applies to the applicant is that a recording can be
made at the most convenient moment for the applicant, in the comfort of
their own home.
There are much more benefits than the ones above. In general the most
important conclusion is that using a video recruitment software platform
decreases candidate screening time by up to 75% (if not more) and helps
you make better decisions about the candidates you bring in for
in-person interviews which in turn saves you a lot of money.
