The Art of Video Interviews w/ Sean Fahey, VidCruiter
Show Notes

In this episode of the HRchat show, we consider the art of video interviews during 'The Great Resignation'. Bill's guest this time is Sean Fahey, CEO and Founder at VidCruiter, the video interviewing specialists offering a suite of products designed to increase the overall quality of hires and drastically reduce time-to-hire. 

Sean is, according to Neri Basque, VP of IT Minacs, “a game-changer in the world of HR. He's always pushing the limits of what is possible.” 

Questions Include: 

  • VidcCruiter’s business case seems pretty strong – you claim your tech can reduce clients' annual turnover by nearly 30%, automate many hiring processes, improve applicant quality and your clients can interview twice as many candidates in 20% of the time. Tell me about the clever tech behind your platform and what makes it different to other vendor options in the marketplace. 
  • Vidcruiter helped a Fortune 500 company hire 2,000 people in just two weeks! Can you share a bit about that case study? 
  • What are some of the challenges faced by HR and hiring managers created by The Great Resignation? 
  • How is the preparation needed by candidates and employers for a video interview different to the in-person experience? 
  • We’ve all been pulled into a digital work environment since early 2020. While many have now returned to the office, many of the technologies and practices adopted during the pandemic are here to stay. Yet uncertainty about the value of video interviewing remains in some organizations. Take a couple of minutes to share some of the big video interview misconceptions that persist and what you see as the realities.
  • We have talked before on this show about the need to remove biases from the sourcing and hiring process. At a high level, what do you think are some steps recruiters can take today to reduce bias through better use of HR technology? 
  • Many industry experts believe that the recruitment process will be fully automated by the end of the 2020s. One topic you were keen to discuss today was around why recruitment should wait on using AI. Can you share your thoughts on where the industry is at with the use of AI and what more needs to happen before the bots and algorithms can take over?
