Why Video and Assessments are the Perfect Pair

With online interaction steering more towards video technology, it is important that businesses use this in their search for top talent. Combining video technology with candidate assessments will revolutionise your process and will ensure you secure the very best talent.

Video Assessments are the Perfect Tool

Video assessments are the perfect tool as they are scripted and fair. Most typically, when conducting a face-to-face interview, questions and opinions can change for each and every candidate, meaning bias can become apparent and introduced as the recruitment process progresses.

If you are not careful, you are at risk of creating unfair opportunities and may even end up selecting the wrong candidate based on personal opinions. Video assessments remove this risk as they provide recruiters with the opportunity to ask the same questions, in the same order while maintaining the same level of engagement.

As well as this, video assessments can also be used to assess a candidate’s cultural fit.

Cultural Fit

Company culture is a strong focus for many employers, which leads them to look for a strong cultural fit within candidates. They do not want to hire someone who does not share their values or passions for the industry, so they can use video assessments to test a candidates’ knowledge and passions for the industry they are applying for.

Automated video assessments simulate conversations where the candidate is then judged on the breadth of their knowledge. Automating this process also helps improve the quality of a search as the answers can be viewed more than once and easily give the recruiter opportunity to see first hand whether the candidate is compatible or not.
