6 in 10 Companies Conduct Video Interviews

Does your staffing firm conduct video interviews? This technology is more common than you may think, as a recent OfficeTeam survey showed 63 percent of human resources managers said their company often conducts employment interviews via video. This is a huge jump from just 14 percent one year ago.

The survey was conducted by an independent research firm and is based on telephone interviews with more than 500 HR managers at U.S. companies with 20 or more employees.

“Many companies are embracing video interviews, which are often conducted online via webcam, as a way to quickly and cost-effectively evaluate applicants,” said Robert Hosking, executive director of OfficeTeam. “Job seekers can use these virtual meetings to put their best foot forward, just as they would in person.”
