Why hiring managers simply love video assessments and demand it from their recruitment teams






In most organizations the recruitment process is broken from the perspective of the hiring manager. They meet too many unfit candidates in unstructured interviews, wasting valuable time and money. What if you could create a recruitment process that combines CV, first impression and e-assessment right from the start? Companies using video assessments on average half their time-to-hire and save at least 25% in overall spending. Do you want to know why hiring managers at the EU, Randstad and T-Mobile demand video-powered candidates? This seminar will show you which part of the recruitment process can be further automated to free up time for the right candidates. Can you afford to ignore the needs of your hiring managers? Join us for a 30-minute seminar on the future of recruitment, a future that is available today.
