Video Interviewing Delivers Powerful Payoffs for RPO

Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is poised to take off in 2015. Just two years ago, the industry generated nearly $2.25 billion in revenue in North America alone, according to Staffing Industry Analysts. More than a third of North American organizations are partnering with a RPO vendor already, and another 28% have plans to explore an investment in RPO over the next two years. RPO firms are gearing up to handle increasing demand, and are looking for ways to generate candidate engagement. Firms that create a positive, branded experience by integrating voice and video interviewing into their hiring process are seeing powerful payoffs:

Will Video Interviewing Be the Tipping Point for RPO?

The RPO industry is poised for a breakthrough. Last year, industry research found that 73% of organizations surveyed planned to increase hiring, and more than 50% planned to increase their use of outsourced recruitment firms. It's likely those plans will continue in 2015 given current employment trends. However, 71% of companies also confirmed what RPO firms have already seen: The shortage of skilled candidates is a significant challenge. Given the increased hiring pressure, will outsourced recruitment firms be able to seize this opportunity to build client loyalty and sustained growth? Their adoption of video interviewing technology is likely to influence that answer.

Montage Video Interviewing: Built for RPO

One message resonates over and over with our Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) clients: they are so particular and exacting in their review of video interviewing platforms because the price of a mistake is so high. The cost of a bloated travel budget, time wasted during disappointing interviews, and hiring mistakes is obvious and contained. What’s not obvious - and what can build a reinforcing negative feedback loop - is the cost of a robotic or impersonal hiring process used for clients whose employer brand suffers with just one bad candidate experience. A negative candidate experience can have a multiplier effect on a client's employer value proposition.
