Video Interview Completion – Research Highlights
The average completion rate of the 20,000 interview campaigns analysed was 71.5%. However, when we looked deeper into the data, we found that:
- 98% of candidates who start an interview complete it.
- 15% of all interviews analysed had a 100% completion rate.
- Over half of all Sonru Clients (57%) have had at least one campaign with a 100% completion rate.
Video Interview Completion – Candidate Feedback
- 52% of respondents completed the video interview in their native language.
- 43% of respondents said they completed their video interview on a mobile device. Those respondents recorded 95% satisfaction with the candidate experience while the graph below presents their findings with regard to the ease of use of the software.
“This video interview app is fantastic and makes it easier to film with my cell phone.” – Candidate Peru
“The layout on an iPad landscape is perfect! The interview process was explained thoroughly and there was no confusion.” – Candidate U.K.
“The standout finding for me was that 98% of candidates who start a video interview complete it. The key learning from that is the importance of the communication you have from the very beginning of the candidate journey and that very important invitation email.” – Joy Redmond, Head of Research, Sonru
