Skill shortages increasingly plague today’s organizations as the population ages and the education system fails to produce candidates with the knowledge and skills to reach market demands. Because of this shortage, the balance of power has tipped in favor of those with highly sought after skills and experience. This trend has re-aligned the recruiting process so that what the candidate thinks of their potential employer matters just as much (if not more) as what the employer thinks of the candidate. This shift has naturally incented organizations to focus on employer branding, attracting passive candidates, and to improve the overall candidate experience.
Cutting-edge organizations have found that video interviewing can compliment all three of these areas and improve upon overall quality of hire. This panel discussion examines the challenges that talent acquisition leaders face, and discusses how video interviewing has helped them achieve their talent acquisition goals in an ever-more competitive and confusing environment.
