I wondered how widespread the use of recorded (asynchronous) video interviews are for recruitment and what tools organisations are using?
We're considering introducing recorded interviews to support the shortlisting for final, face to face interviews. We've recently trialed one such tool which allowed us to prerecord a set of questions which candidates then gave answers to via their laptop, smartphone or tablet. Overall it worked well from a assessment perspective although the candidates were more mixed about the experience. We didn't use one of the newer services which utlise artifical intelligence to appraise candidates - I don't think we're ready to go down that route and I would need to see strong evidence supporting the AI's judgments validity and freedom from bias.
Do colleagues have any experiences that they would be willing to share? Happy to have receive recommendations - or caveats - as messages! Thank you.
