Integrated video interviewing is now available!

Updated 7 months ago by Amy Tranter

To help you identify the best talent faster, you can now deliver seamless video interviews directly through the Criteria platform, making it easier for you to discover and hire the best candidates. 

Our one-way (also known as “asynchronous”) video interviewing tool helps you to create a structured interview process that’s objective, fair and minimises bias. Based on next-generation video technology, it provides a simple, engaging candidate experience, and includes features that enable you to showcase your unique company culture. 

Within the Criteria platform, you can:  

  1. Create a video interview and add it to a pipeline stage  

Choose from a pre-filmed library of standard questions or create your own. Optimise the candidate experience with a custom introduction video and personalised questions.  

  1. Invite candidates to complete their interview  

Automatically invite candidates by moving them to the appropriate pipeline stage and send them a personal email invitation. Candidates enjoy a simple, engaging process that enables them to test their settings and complete practice questions before beginning their interview and can complete anytime, anywhere, on any device.  

  1. Collaborate and evaluate  

Invite the relevant people to evaluate candidate interviews and set up clear and consistent rating guides so each candidate is assessed according to the same criteria. Evaluators can review interviews whenever it suits them, and zip through the process in a fraction of the time required for conventional phone screens.  

Add video interviews to assessments for a more complete picture of each candidate 

The more reliable, objective information you have about your candidates, the more confidence you can have in your recruitment decisions. We recommend using 2 or 3 assessments early on to measure aptitude, personality and (if required by the role) skills, Emotional Intelligence, and risk propensity. Based on their results, you can then prioritise which candidates are most likely to fit your requirements and invite them to complete a video interview. 

Research clearly indicates that structured interviews (in which every candidate responds to the same questions and is assessed according to the same criteria) offer twice the predictive validity of unstructured interviews, leading to better hiring decisions and reducing the likelihood of a poor hire. 

Customise the interview experience 

On top of time and efficiency savings, our video interviewing tool enables you to really showcase your organisation’s culture and identity. You can add a high production value “intro” video about your organisation or a simple, friendly welcome recorded on a phone or laptop; you can create a great impression with candidates and help them understand what it’s really like to work with your company. 

You can also create different types of questions depending on the role you’re recruiting for, such as written response questions and simulations. 

This exciting new tool is available as an add-on to your subscription for all Professional or Enterprise customers. If you’d like more information, please contact your Customer Success Manager and we’ll organise a demo for you.
