Candidates: Are you interviewing and need support?
In my role as a Solution Architect at HireVue I am fortunate that I get to work with some of the world’s most innovative brands and understand some of the best recruitment technology on the market. Some vendors are experts in designing their solutions from the ground up with the candidate, recruiter and the business’s needs in mind.
SmartRecruiters is one of those technologies. It integrates seamlessly into other hiring technologies, which is my main focus here at HireVue. We’ve partnered with SmartRecruiters to provide a completely self-service integration between our platforms which can be set up, enabled and configured into workflow within hours — not in days or weeks as with a traditional integration project. Your own super users across both HireVue and SmartRecruiters can administer and support the integration.
During my career I have run a team of implementation consultants and became a certified SI partner of the SmartRecruiters product, helping over 50 clients in my time go-live with an innovative, well-designed recruitment process that aided the recruiter and supported them in the hiring workflow. I’ve seen so many technology trends in the past 20+ years.
The big move 10 years ago was to have an ATS very much embedded into the core HRIS and part of the same suite, the target aspiration of “Total Talent” and even REQless recruitment. I do, however, see a return of point solutions, and, specifically, some clients turning towards an independent ATS vendor and integrating it into the core HCM stack — with many turning to SmartRecruiters to help them power their hiring, at scale.
I help SmartRecruiters Recruiting customers integrate HireVue’s solutions to enhance their processes even further, giving their recruiters and hiring managers the opportunity to work from within their system of record, to automate manual tasks, and deliver a standout candidate experience that helps them find the best talent in a fair and equitable way.
Below are some of my career lessons on how to create a seamless hiring experience using SmartRecruiters and HireVue.
1. Identify the right partner (not just another vendor)
There are some essential criteria that you should look for when searching for hiring technology to enhance SmartRecruiters Recruiting. Choosing the wrong partner can lead to unnecessary time and resources being wasted on your integration project and leave you with a process that delays rather than delights.
2. Attract and empower candidates
Expanding the reach of your recruitment process will help attract and engage as much diverse talent as possible. Although not all candidates will be successful, projecting your EVP and providing a quality experience will ensure your company is thought of positively by your talent of tomorrow.
3. Supercharge your hiring
Many companies are now seeking to create a fully-digital end-to-end hiring journey. Often initially driven by a desire for greater efficiency, these projects also improve candidate experience and provide a consistent and science-backed way to find the best talent. A robust screening and interview process sits at the heart of your journey, the latest integrations now automatically push data into applications like SmartRecruiters Recruiting so that your teams can spend their time working from within one system.
“HireVue’s Live and OnDemand video interviewing solutions, alongside HireVue Builder, are ideal additions for customers who want to accelerate recruiting efficiency and achieve Hiring Success. We’ve seen how quickly organizations have been able to improve candidate engagement and decrease time to hire when they add HireVue to their existing workflow.”
Jerome Ternynck, Founder and CEO of SmartRecruiters
4. The offer
In today’s business landscape, experienced hires might come with a 1-3 month notice period. Graduate hires might receive an offer up to 1 year before they start a role. So it’s essential that you keep in regular dialogue with your new hires and use this time wisely to share and capture information as part of their onboarding.
“HireVue allows us to evaluate 5000 applicants globally each year. We use online video interviews to engage a large and diverse talent pool, and gamified tests to evaluate applicants quickly and fairly. HireVue helps us remain agile and adapt to the constantly changing world of recruitment.”
Vanessa Naicker, Head of Early Talent, Anglo American
