4 video recruitment tools for successful onboarding of remote employees

Published on 08/10/2020 by Quirine Storm van Leeuwen and Sonia Navarrete

Video interviews are a useful tool for both recruiters and applicants, they provide an effective way to screen applicants remotely and allow recruiters to see the candidate in video before meeting them face-to-face. This approach not only saves recruiters money and time, but also gives recruiters and applicants more flexibility.

video recruitment software for HR teams

Video interviews have become more relevant than ever since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Now that many countries have measures to keep their distance and solid remote work policies in place, it is a good solution for recruiters to conduct job interviews via video.

However, selecting a video recruitment tool for job interviews can be a difficult task due to a large number of products in the market. So to save recruiters some time, we’ve compiled a list of 4 popular tools available on GetApp. 

The tools on this list have at least the basic functionalities of video interview software (e.g. live interviewing and skills assessment/scoring). If you’d like to learn more about how we have selected these tools, check out our selection methodology at the bottom of this article. 

These are the 4 video recruitment tools we will discuss in this article:

Vectera

Vectera is a cloud-based online conferencing platform. The tool offers support for HR teams with meeting room scheduling and video conference management.

Vectera offers a ‘virtual conference room’ in which members can use a whiteboard to add in their ideas as well as upload documents during the meeting and job interviews. The information on the meeting (including the whiteboard) is saved in this virtual meeting room once the meeting ends, which is accessible for later access.

Takeaway: The free version offers basic support for occasional meetings, but if you are looking for more features for interviews and meetings, the Pro or Business/Integration version may be better suited.
