I have to say that I was impressed with the advancements year over year. Though most of my questions have been answered I know that the community here will not be fully convinced that video interviewing (recorded and live) plays a significant role in the advancement of hiring best practices.
Understanding that our community is rather diverse I do expect varying view points how there are a few key questions everyone will want to ask.
If you are a vendor or user and have real numbers to post, please let us know. We'd like to have a debate on the technology and share the outcome with our community.
Here are a few questions we need answered:
What is a legitimate starting point in dollars to buy into this type of engagement. Taking into account there are various forms of usage including full integrations as well as a point of sale plug and play, what can a firm expect to budget?
Is there a precedent for compliance that can be cited for clarification and legal challenges?
How does the internal talent acquisition team of a company position this solution to the business so that the investment proves to be a value add?
What is an expected period of change management during implementation on a full service video interviewing solution?
Are you considering a video interviewing solution in your organization? Below are a few of the video interviewing platforms to consider. Keep in mind that not all vendors offer the same solution and offer a variety of levels at which they can serve you.
Here is a short list of video interviewing platforms represented at HR Tech 2013: (NOT IN ANY SPECIFIC ORDER)
