The Changing Interview Process

There are interesting changes happening within HERD HR unit that is looking to adopt more efficient and quick processes to being more techno-savvy in its working. From processing and filing resumes efficiently to going online through Skype and Facetime to interview prospective candidates – the team is taking on exciting options. They are also exploring all kinds of technical opportunities that may best assist in sourcing employees with the required skills to be able to collate highly effective business teams.

It is management at the top that is at the heart for bringing about these futuristic trends and transformations. Wanting more efficient methods with the idea to do away with traditional interview techniques that focused too much on factors that allowed for delays and postponements, the new-age techniques help in identifying tech friendly and tech-users required in today’s increasingly digital world.

Online interviews are now the staple of many tech-savvy recruiters. Besides saving time, money and resources on personal interviews they allow for instant real-world feel and conditions without the hassle of arranging a formal face to face discussion.  It seems okay to do away with the rigors of regular interviews and adopt the perceivable superficiality of online interviews. One of the best things to happen is that there is a lot less stress for interviewees and the digital barrier makes them free and open to stating their mind

It then appears to be a life-line in this day and age to be able to recruit tech savvy candidates who are more than willing to go through screen interviews to explain their inclinations to be keen for the job profile. For HERD HR it is now increasingly becoming a neat hiring process to scan candidates and be able to adjudge on screen what they do not want to opt for. Yes the declining route certainly becomes easier.

There is naturally many a pitfall between the resume and the real person. And if one is able to discern this while talking online you may gather as much as you would from a face to face consultation and say no to the person without much compunction. While it is true that HERD HR hiring practices have earlier scrutinized qualified candidates and noted them wanting in certain areas as to required credentials, but in online cases it just becomes so much easier to say no.

We are also aware that the digital way may have them in a position to access answers with online information to give all the correct technical responses. Also we may not be able to really comprehend the culture fit talking to a person online. However the team keeps an open mind on this count to be aware that while they look for people who fit in with what the culture is but it is also a good idea to keep ourselves open to new prospects and new perspectives.

With varied business units under the belt, HERD Group of Companies can very well do with a mix and match of talent recruiting. Online talent scouting and interviews are just another convenient process to scout for a good thing if it comes by. The important thing is to ensure that anyone with the requisite skills and matching credentials will get an equal if not quicker shot at being taken in through this hiring process. This will not only be good for the person it will be good for the company and the business too.

The HERD HR team is quite accustomed by now to this recruiting procedure and recruiters too are more open to it than in-person interviews. With advances in modern technology our HR professionals make the process easier and more efficient and fortunately they do not dilute the human element. Video interviews do away with travel costs and allow for scheduling at everyone’s convenience.

The convenience provided by this technology is readily being acknowledged and spurring the team to adopt it more extensively. It is especially great for far flung and even out-station candidates. It allows for visibility into a candidate’s qualifications, presence, and skills in a more convenient atmosphere for the recruiter. In a world of greater connectivity it is just the thing to happen more and more now.
