With Sapia.ai’s smart hiring automation, video interviews form part of an end to end hiring solution that’s engaging for candidates, liberating for hiring managers, and reduces bias.
Initially video interviews were designed to simply replace the face to face interview, with no consideration of how candidates might engage with video up front. As a first interaction, it’s intimidating, and likely to see low completion rates and low satisfaction rates
When you move video down the funnel and design the experience to be low-pressure and easy to engage with, you’ll see completion rates of 77% and higher, and an overall candidate satisfaction rating of 9/10.
On completion of their chat interview, the top people are automatically progressed to video, still in a chat-based environment in which they can record responses to simple questions, in their own time.
This removes wasted time on scheduling and no-shows so hiring managers can focus on picking the best people – while they’re engaged, and before they’re snapped up by the competition.
We were worried about video being exclusionary. So we made some critical decisions when designing the interview experience, which have led to industry-leading satisfaction and completion rates.
Multi-assessor capability enables a panel review style process for organizations. Only recruiters can view other assessors’ ratings, reducing conformity bias by ensuring hiring managers aren’t influenced by others’ ratings and comments when reviewing a candidate.
Delivered through the same interface as Chat Interview, Video Interview puts people at ease because it looks and feels just like the Chat Interview experience. Candidates can rehearse and record as many takes as they like, and there’s no overall time limit, which means they’ll be as calm and confident as possible. The consistency and flexibility of the process is a big win for your employer brand.
I found this a really fresh and fun way to interview people. I felt comfortable and relaxed in this setting and really appreciated the way it was set out! Thank you.
Great how you get time to think about responses and get the opportunity to re-record when necessary! Thanks !
It’s been an pretty easy process. I like that you can leave the interview and come back to it later that was really helpful.
Having a online prerecorded interview was really accessible and eased a lot of the interview jitters!
It’s great that I could complete the interviews at a time I’m comfortable with and having plenty of time to respond.
