For a growing number of organizations video interviewing has proven to be a great differentiator and a way to enhance one’s recruitment process, improve team collaboration, and build an employer brand.
According to Universum’s Employer Branding NOW 2019 report, video interviewing remains a top tech choice for companies in 2019. 58% of the World’s Most Attractive Employers (WMAEs) are already using the technology. While the adoption of video interview technology is increasing overall, it’s interesting to know what candidates and recruiters truly think about video interviews.
Candidates' take on video interviewing
Based on a rolling candidate survey since 2015 by Recright and its pool of over 100,000 respondents, candidates truly embrace video interviews in recruitment.
81% of recruiters said that using video interviews in recruitment improves their overall work performance (see the chart below).
This is a clear indication that video interviewing is a true time-saver. And as we all know, time is money.
Some recruiters even mentioned reducing their time-to-hire by 55% in some cases. Based on our survey data, we calculated that going through 15 candidates by phone takes about 7,5 hours (excluding scheduling) while by video interview, takes 45-75 minutes.
63.8% of recruiters spend 5 minutes or less recording one video question, 24% claim they spend less than 3 minutes recording a video interview question (see chart below).
