Video conferencing and collaboration solutions make it easier for your employees to connect and work together no matter where they are. But the power of video extends beyond the day-to-day routines of the people on your payroll. To fully exploit the potential of video conferencing and collaboration technology, you should be thinking about how to use video to reach beyond your organization.
You should be using video to connect with clients and customers, but an often overlooked feature of video conferencing solutions is the boost it can give to your recruitment and hiring process.
For one thing, a millennial-heavy workforce will expect top companies to be “with it” enough to offer interviews via video. Pretty much everything else in a younger person’s world is mediated by video, so why should a job interview be any different? This might go against your firmly held beliefs about how employers should engage with job candidates, but if your company uses video conferencing technology to conduct its business on a daily basis, why should hiring be any different?
More importantly, conducting interviews and pursuing candidates via video can save you so much money. Flying even one candidate out to your headquarters can make quite a dent in your HR budget. And if you’re interviewing multiple people for the same job, the cost can quickly escalate. With high definition video and crystal clear audio, a video interview can provide as much crucial audiovisual information as an in-person meeting, so why not go for the more affordable option?
To take full advantage of video conferencing during the recruitment and hiring process, you will need a solution that is easily accessible for users outside of your organization. You don’t want to place any unnecessary hurdles between you and your top prospects. Shifting HR work into the video realm should make everyone’s life easier, you know?
