Using Videoconferencing to Aid Recruiting Efforts
October 30, 2015
Adding quality employees to your workforce can be an incredibly costly, time consuming, and frustrating process. Between locating potential prospects, taking the time to hold interviews and narrow down the pool, and training new employees once they are hired, expanding a workforce can eat up tons of time and budget dollars.
Luckily for human resources departments, the spread of more effective video conferencing services into the business world can relieve a lot of the burden that adding and training new employees can place on a company. HR department heads can use new cutting edge video conferencing services to pre-screen candidates for further interview, cutting down on loss of time and travel costs. After being hired, these same video conferences can be used to begin training the new arrivals before they even set foot in the office. These conferences can be more than one on one, allowing new employees to be educated in groups. According to the Aberdeen (News - Alert) Group, these innovations save organizations to the tune of 32 percent of cost per new hire.
In addition to making things easier for HR departments, video conferencing can also ease the transition that always comes when new hires move to a new place of work. Incoming employees can familiarize themselves with their coworkers and superiors, even across the country, making them more comfortable. Conferencing can also be incredibly when a new hire is not able to relocate right away: they can start immersing themselves in work much sooner than previously. Finally, new hires can adjust to a different workload more easily with the flexibility to take some of their work home with them while still staying connected, if they so choose.
Video conferencing has begun to permeate all throughout the business world, bringing with it enhanced convenience and increased productivity. HR recruiting and hiring is just one more region where smart organizations can better leverage these services.
