As an asychronous video interviewing software vendor, we only see what happens on our system but do not know what happens before and indeed after our clients use Sonru. Or course, we regularly interview clients and publish case studies that fill in these gaps but a fistful of anecdotes isn’t enough to make a business case.
A while back, we wanted to present you with empirical data to support the anecdotes we had gathered over the years so we published ‘The Recruiter Experience of Video Interviewing’. That white paper was based on a rolling online survey, still rolling, with Sonru clients. We wanted to write something new that was a sort of merry in-between of both these research methodologies. So along with many structured interviews conducted with Sonru clients across Europe and Asia Pacfic over the summer of 2019, and borrowing from more than sixty previous case study interviews, we are delighted to present a 360˚ View of Video Interviewing in Action.
With this in mind, Sonru’s latest report looks at the impact of video interviewing on the recruitment process during four key stages:
- The Application stage
- The Process itself
- How Selection decisions are made
- The post-hire Review
“The thing about quantitative research is that it gives us graphs and crude statistics while often the ‘story’ gets lost in the data. For me as a researcher, answers to the ‘Why’ questions are always far more telling than the descriptive ‘How’ and the ‘What’ responses. Over hours of conversations with clients who willingly gave up their time, we’ve dug deep and found the story of video intervewing from both the clients’ and candidates’ perspective and I’m delighted to share these findings with you.” – Joy Redmond, Head of Research, Sonru
