Enniscorthy, Wexfo, Ireland, 2012/05/02 - Sonru, a multi award winning video interviewing technology company, announced the release of Volume 3 of their hugely popular white paper entitled, “The Candidate Experience of Video Interviewing - Sonru.com.
The paper presents research findings of over 1.300 candidates’ awareness / attitudes and actual experience of automated video interviews.
Fergal O’Byrne, Group CEO of Sonru, commenting on the third volume of the white paper’s publication,“Sonru’s development and continued enhancement has always been candidate-centric and feedback has always been hugely positive. Today, we can provide clients and potential users with evidence of the positive impact in adopting innovative technology into the recruitment process.”
Jonathan Campbell, CEO, Social Talent and co-author added,"These white paper findings prove definitively that the Sonru environment enables job seekers to genuinely enjoy the video interview experience. More than that, candidates end up feeling happier after the process than they did initially! Video assessment is a no-brainer for the hiring company, it saves time, money and leaves the job seeker with a more positive impression of the process. For those of you have struggled to find a place for video in the recruitment mix, here it is, kicking the butt of any alternative.”
Research highlights include:
• The majority of respondents recorded positive feelings when invited to complete the video interview and almost two thirds (65%) recorded positive first impressions such as being ‘Impressed’, ‘Excited’ or ‘Happy to progress to the next stage.’
• The flexibility offered to candidates to choose the time and date of the interview emerged as the key benefit. Not having to take time off work and overall convenience were also considered advantageous.
• More respondents would prefer an automated video interview to a telephone screening interview.
