The most recent HR Technology research on Trends, Issues & Challenges for 2015 has recently been released. The study has found out that “85% of HR professionals agree that linking HR technology to business strategy is the #1 HR challenge facing their organization for this year”.
The traditional HR selection phase is composed by the preliminary CV screening stage, subsequent telephone and in-person interviews and finally the cultural fit selection. Such process has proven to be the most effective and efficient one so far, however, screening hundreds of CVs manually and doing telephone calls everyday is a very time consuming job which in turn, increases the cost of hiring if we consider the layoffs due to lack of personality sustaining the team’s spirit and culture.
New technologies are replacing these steps and simplifying the way we screen, understand and evaluate candidates. The idea is to pass from the preliminary phase straight to the face-to-face interviews by incorporating the cultural and personal fit already in the application form and substituting telephone calls by pre-recorded video interviews, where ALL candidates have the same chance to have a say and defend their candidature.
By implementing these aspects within the initial application stage, recruiters will have the chance to shortlist the best candidates not only by matching key words (education, experience and skills related) mentioned in the applicant’s CV but also by verifying that we are dealing with the right personality fitting the team. What’s more, hiring professionals will also be able to watch and analyze the candidate’s reaction and facial expressions from the moment they do the online application.
At skeeled, the reason why we’re using “the most advanced candidate screening software” is because it represents exactly what we are delivering. Our algorithms process, shortlist and rank automatically the most promising profiles during the screening phase of the selection process. We empower candidates to promote themselves in a much deeper manner, allowing skeeled to process, match and shortlist the most suitable candidates based on standardized CVs, deep personality insights and in-depth video interviews.
We are proud to say that implementing the platform can save up to 50% of time currently needed to recruit, reducing cost by more than 40% as well as considerably increasing the quality of hire. It’s definitely the time to hire new technologies and recruit the people that drive your business strategy to success!
