6 Ways Automated Recruitment Software allows for Smarter Recruitment
1. Makes Interview Scheduling A Breeze
When it comes to in-person interviews, coordinating schedules can be a nightmare for everyone involved. For the recruitment team, this means quickly finding themselves knee-deep in emails and phone calls in an effort to ensure everyone is where they’re supposed to be on the day of the interview. For the candidate, this often means taking time off from work and traveling miles for a position they may not even get.
Automated recruitment software changes all of that by letting HR teams schedule and send out one-way interviews all at once. A suitable time window enables candidates to respond to questions at their convenience while hiring managers can review and assess these recorded responses on their own time. This means recruitment teams no longer have to go through the cumbersome ordeal of juggling interviewers and interviewees, and there’s no need to inconvenience candidates either.
2. Eliminates Geographical Barriers
In addition to time management and scheduling constraints, IntVue also enables you to overcome ones associated with location. This way, you can tap into a richer and deeper talent pool as you can literally approach candidates from anywhere in the world without needing to account for travel or differences in time zones.
From the perspective of candidates from another city or country, IntVue makes their life a whole lot easier as well. Not only do they not have to leave the comfort of their hometown for an interview, but IntVue also somewhat levels the playing field for them by guaranteeing a consistent interview experience for all candidates.
3. Helps Hiring Teams Draw Meaningful Conclusions
Besides evening the odds, IntVue’s all-around consistent interview experience also prevents conversations from going off-track by ensuring all candidates are asked the same questions. Such a level of uniformity is hard to imagine in an in-person interview. However, by leveraging a structured approach and predetermined question sets, IntVue helps you do the same without even breaking a sweat.
Moreover, automated recruitment software lets recruiters view all recorded responses anytime. Thus, they can effortlessly compare and contrast responses from different candidates, as thoroughly as needed. This helps them make fairer and more informed decisions when screening candidates best suited for the position in question.
4. Reduces Time To Hire
To find worthwhile candidates, hiring managers and recruiters typically spend a great deal of time in the screening round. If it’s a high volume position, sifting through paperwork can be a real chore, while the changes of a quality hire also dwindle the longer it takes for them to respond to candidates.
IntVue makes it possible for recruiters to engage multiple candidates at once without having to worry about candidate no-shows, schedule alignment, and whatnot. Unlike traditional methods, video interviewing also provides teams a more holistic view of candidates, so they’re able to quickly and more accurately weed out candidates who have no business participating in subsequent rounds.
5. Simplifies Collaboration and Feedback Management
Smarter hiring decisions demand smarter collaboration, and IntVue helps you do just that. Since it’s a centralized, cloud-based platform, it lets recruiters view, analyze, and compare candidate responses whenever and wherever they find convenient, making sure each candidate has their undivided attention.
Team members can leave feedback and comments for all candidate responses, which can be made visible to fellow members for more transparent, impartial, and informed decision-making. All members can then vote a candidate up or down, ensuring everyone’s had their say before arriving at the final verdict.
6. Reduces Bias and Discrimination
Despite the best of intentions, bias can creep up at any stage in face-to-face interviews and influence recruiters to make decisions that not only serve to demotivate worthy candidates but also don’t bode well for companies in the long run. IntVue attempts to make the recruitment process fairer and more fruitful for everyone involved in several ways:
Firstly, the sets of questions candidates must answer are identical and don’t presuppose anything about them based on their appearance or where they’re from. Secondly, as long as they have a working internet connection, all candidates have an equally good interview experience regardless of where they’re situated.
Lastly, interview evaluations are transparent and can be conducted by a team of recruiters, effectively negating personal biases to a great extent.
