Video Interviewing Platforms in HR Are Evolving at a Rapid Pace – According to New Study by HR.com’s Research Institute

February 25, 2019 No comments | Back To Home

According to a new research report, “The State of Video and Interviewing Platforms 2019”, by the HR Research Institute, just over half (52%) of organizations use some form of video interviewing in the employee recruitment process. Among larger firms (1,000 or more employees), the proportion rises to 62%. Among small firms (with less than 100 employees), the proportion is just 36%.

The study indicates that companies derive benefits from video interviewing, but higher value is gained from more sophisticated dedicated interviewing systems. Such systems allow for the easy recording of real-time video interviews as well as asynchronous interviews, and they’re sometimes integrated with other administrative or assessment tools. Only about half of HR professionals say their video interviewing technology is good or excellent. However, almost 80% of companies with dedicated interviewing platforms rate them as good or excellent.

In some cases, video is just one part of an interviewing platform that supports the talent acquisition process. The two components that HR most commonly predicts will become important in dedicated interviewing platforms over the next few years are assessments (55%) and the ability to integrate with other HR systems (52%).

“The HR industry knows interviewing platforms are here to stay,” stated Debbie McGrath, Chief Instigator and CEO of HR.com. “The best platforms provide too many competitive advantages to just disappear. But I think we will see a lot of expansion in the power of these platforms in coming years, and there will be greater integration with other systems as well.”
