The EasyHire.me team is very excited to launch Live Video Panel Interviews!
This feature has been on our roadmap for several years now. However with the shelter-in place conditions under COVID-19, we’ve seen an increased demand for this feature from employers.
Panel interviews are live interviews where a candidate is interviewed by multiple interviewers. Interview panel usually consists of the hiring manager, team lead, HR representative, and senior team members. The panel team may differ according to the organization’s type. Also, Panel interviews are often used for internal audits of the interview process and practices.
Easyhire.me allows conducting video Panel Interviews with up to 4 interviewers. Every interview panel member can add the question to the interview and leave grades and comments.
To invite interviewers click on the “Add Panel Members” button in the “Set up live interview” form. The interviewer can select panel interviewers from their team members.
Panel interview members will receive an interview confirmation e-mail after the candidate confirms the interview date and time. After the interview has been finished, all participants may view interview playback and submit a scorecard.
While On-Demand interviews is still the most common and efficient way to pre-screen a large number of candidates, for many types of jobs Panel interviews are an essential tool in getting to know how candidates perform under stressful conditions.
Try panel interviews and let us know your feedback!
Everything is changing, and this is mainly because of the internet. It’s becoming easier for people to build businesses, do research and of course, hire people. There are companies that still opt for the traditional route, though. But what they don’t realize is that they are missing out on the chance to do so much more! Read on to know more about proven benefits of adopting video into your company.
Video conference is more effective mode of communication.
It’s hard to get people in the same room at the same time during important meetings. And video actually solves that. In fact, this Must-Know Video Conferencing Statistics shows that there’s higher and higher interest to do conferences remotely due to the fact that it’s cost-effective, improves communication and definitely saves time. Businesses that use video conferencing actually saw a 30% reduction in travel costs and skipping the cost of travel means being able to save a lot that can be invested on other aspects of the company.
Video interviews allow companies to hire effectively.
Most companies have inhibitions when it comes to adopting new technology because it’s a big unknown for them. And while it may take some time and effort to switch from the traditional way of interviewing to a modern one, the pros can definitely outweigh the cons. In fact, MRI Network did a 2017 Recruiter Sentiment Study and found out that 63% of recruiters say that there aren’t enough suitable candidates for them to screen. And video eliminates this by allowing recruiters to search all over the world for more suitable candidates that would fit their hiring needs.
Video for training employees makes more sense.
The truth is, training employees takes time and time is money. And if a company is able to make the training a bit less time consuming, then it basically means that the transition of a new employee to the position they are assigned for can become a bit more hassle-free. And how can this be done? The obvious answer would be by creating training videos. It allows the training process to be done in a manner that needs little supervision and the best part is the trainee can go back to it whenever they need to. If you’re still in doubt, then you should see Cisco’s Survey that shows that the majority of executives see a big future for video in the workplace.
Video adoption can be applied in so many aspects of the workplace. If your company isn’t adopting the video technology to any of its work processes, then your company is definitely moving backwards. Keep in mind that about 9 out of 10 (87 percent) of companies are making video investments right now. Companies who make a commitment to video technology are seen as a company who cares about using technology to fuel business growth. So it’s high time that companies find a way to adopt video into their work process before they fall behind from their competition.
Just at the end of last year, EasyHire.me proudly to announced a new innovation within our system that will allow hiring managers to have an even easier time reviewing applicants! We have integrated our platform with the internet browser systems that are accessible both on iOS and Android. Candidates can now take interviews any time and anywhere without the need to install additional apps.
Having the ability to take an interview instantly from any location in the world puts you, as a hiring team member, in a better position by improving efficiency between you and the candidates. Statistics show that it allows you to increase your exposure to new candidates by 36%*.
Since hundreds of other people are competing for the same position it is important to contact the hiring team as fast as possible to conduct your interview. Being able to see in which order the interviews come in as a hiring manager puts you in an advantageous spot. Here is what NPR said about a study done in 2015,
“being the first person to apply for an interview allows you to gain a more objective review of your resume and gives you a higher chance of landing the position you are seeking” – NPR, 2015.
Since those applying first will almost always be the ones who are genuinely seeking the position our new system removes the barrier of additional apps in order to get the hiring managers to the new contacts as soon as possible. If the statistics aren’t enough to satisfy you, check out these three reasons on why you should use our system.
