With The New Year Just Beginning, is it Time for a New Recruitment Strategy?

With the new year just beginning, it’s time that every recruiter must ask themselves; “should I update my recruitment strategy?”. The answer will most likely be yes, that is if you want to keep up with the trends and secure a high-quality candidate pool.

Video-Led Recruitment

Video CVs, video interviews and video assessments became more and more popular towards the end of last year. Therefore, as we look towards the rest of 2018 and beyond, we’re bound to see video-led recruitment rise even more.

Why Should You Use Video?

Video-Led Recruitment should be the main element within your recruitment process as it not only gives candidates the opportunity to find out more about your company culture and background, but it also gives recruiters the opportunity to see the candidate first hand.

From this, recruiters are able to identify whether the candidate will fit in and if they will be able to carry out the role to a high standard. Recruiters will be able to see if the candidate has what it takes.

What’s Best For You?

When deciding which element of video-led recruitment (if not all) to implement in your new and improved recruitment strategy, you must look at each platform in detail to find out which one is best suited to your needs and highlight some of its key aspects. For example:

Video CVs

Video CVs are great for saving recruitment costs and improving efficiency and offer a wide range of benefits:

Video Assessments

Video assessments also help improve your recruitment process as they give candidates the opportunity to adapt their answers to the specific questions asked before they click ‘record’. As well as this, video assessments let recruiters find out key information and experience of all candidates to see if it matches up with your company’s requirements.

Video Interviews

Statistically, video interviews are six times faster than your average phone interview. They are more informative and create higher employee success rates. Not only this, but video interviews allow you to probe a little deeper than a phone interview take place from the comfort of your own office or on the go, it couldn’t get much better than that!
