VIRTUAL RECRUITMENT – IT REALLY WORKS!

Share This Post

For the last few years, the internet has become an integral part of our lives. From a preschooler to a pre-retiree, everyone has become used to learning and working remotely. While most companies have had to learn how to work remotely, RDC has perfected our techniques since the  mid-1990s.

So, what is virtual recruitment? Recruiters use technology to host video interviews, virtual events, surveys, and evaluate applicants for hiring managers. In short, virtual recruiting is a hiring process that takes place remotely, without meeting the candidates face to face. Instead, recruiters rely on technology to remotely host video interviews, virtual events, surveys, and assessments to evaluate their applicants. Instead of meeting each qualified candidate in person, more organizations can set up a virtual hiring process with the help of online tools like Zoom, Entelo, or Calendly to meet qualified candidates for their organization.

Remote recruitment benefits both candidates and hiring managers. Candidates report finding virtual job searches less intimidating, easier to prepare for, more flexible, and convenient. Employers benefit from an expanded candidate pool, save on the overall costs of recruitment, and promote positive brand identity among job seekers.

One of the tools associated with remote recruiting is predictive analytics. Predictive analytics—such as the DISC model (insert a link to Who Do You Think You Are? DISC Helps You (and Your Employer) Figure That Out (PART II)—is a powerful tool that utilizes the power of big data to identify patterns and trends. Companies use these patterns and trends in a data modeling method to make predictions about future outcomes.

In recruiting and talent acquisition, predictive analytics allows organizations to:

  • Streamline the recruitment process
  • Screen out candidates who are not a good fit
  • Identify and prioritize traits that correlate with high job performance
  • Provide a better employee experience

It is a new world in hiring for both candidates and managers. To learn more about the DISC Profiles, contact rdc@rdcinc.com for assistance!
