Virtual Interviews Reduce Time To Hire And Strengthen Role In Hiring, According To Employers



Dive brief:

  • Virtual interviews are here to stay, according to the October 14 results of an Indeed survey. The job site surveyed more than 1,100 US employers of varying sizes.
  • Eighty-two percent of respondents said they adopted virtual interviews with applicants due to the pandemic, and almost all – 93% – said they would continue to use virtual interviews in the future.
  • Employers said the practice has brought several benefits, including shorter hiring times, a streamlined employer process, and a better experience for candidates.

Dive overview:

Measuring hiring time is often on the minds of HR professionals. This can be a particularly important goal for companies in times of growth, according to some research.

In a 2018 Spark Hire survey, nearly half of those polled said it took them around seven to 14 days to go from application to offer letter. A quarter puts this range between 15 and 30 days. But almost all of them, even those with the shortest hiring window, said they could improve.

Indeed, it may not come as a surprise that the pandemic’s shift to virtual interviews has streamlined hiring processes, especially since he agrees with October 2020 survey results from talent assessment software company Criteria.

But despite this time saved, Robert Half Research at the start of the year indicated that nationwide hiring times may eventually grow longer, as employers benefit from a larger talent pool than ever before.

It’s risky, a company spokesperson said earlier this year: Employers who lag behind their peers will lose top talent, he noted, while those who are transparency with applicants and progressing effectively throughout the process will gain a recruiting advantage.
