“We are more efficient in our recruitment process [with Sonru]. Recruitment time has been cut in half and the line managers feel very much part of the process. Line managers no longer feel that they are curtailed in how many candidates they can meet initially, and they are now not spending 2 days interviewing candidates.” – Jennie Devlin, HR Manager, Tourism Ireland.
Video Interviewing Invaluable for Internal Recruitment
Tourism Ireland find video interviewing particularly useful for internal recruitment as it removes that sense of entitlement among certain internal candidates who assume they will be automatically progressed to final interviews.
“With Sonru, the candidates realise a lot of work and preparation needs to go into applying for the role so they get to ask themselves if they really want the promotion or move. They also see they have to go through the same process as external candidates to get to final interview stage.” – Vivienne Horkan, Head of Human Resources, Tourism Ireland
