Interviews are an important part of the hiring process because they allow you to get a better overall view of the candidate than you could ever get from just looking at their resume. But conducting face-to-face interviews usually mean a lot of time and effort spent on scheduling, travelling, and the actual meeting itself. This is why video interviewing systems are becoming increasingly popular in today’s recruiting world.
VidCruiter is leading the way with our video interviewing software which was designed to save your company significant amounts of time and money on recruitment. Our system makes it easy for you to interview as many candidates and ask as many questions as you want. Candidates are record their answers to your interview questions on their own time in any location and on any device. Then you can watch the interview and review it whenever it is convenient for you. If you find a candidate is not a match at any point during the interview, you have the option of moving on to the next candidate without wasting any more time.
Using your own pre-set criteria, VidCruiter can automatically rank each candidate to give you an idea of how they compare with the other applicants. You also have the option of sharing interviews with other members of the team to get their input as well. The more insight you have regarding a candidate increases the likelihood of a quality hire. Since candidate profiles are stored in the system, when the next hiring opportunity arises, you have a large candidate pool already on hand!
It is easy to see why companies might prefer video interviews over more traditional ones, but applicants actually do as well! Firstly, they don’t have to go anywhere which saves them time and money right from the start. Using VidCruiter, the applicant is able to practice and get comfortable with the system before moving on to the actual interview. Being able to do it in their own home also helps candidates feel more at ease and better able to perform well during the interview. You even have the option of allowing the candidate to re-record their answers until they are happy with the results. It’s your choice how you set up the system to work for you.
All the personal information collected during the video interviewing process has to be stored somewhere, which is why choosing a data host is very important. Depending on your location, your company may be bound by certain rules and regulations when it comes to data privacy. For example, in the United Kingdom the Data Protection Act controls how personal information can be used and there are a strict set of rules called the “data protection principles” that must be followed.
If you have been searching for a UK-based video interviewing system hosted in the UK, look no further. VidCruiter can host all of your company’s data within the United Kingdom on your behalf.
