Hiring Business Critical Talent Through Video Interview

Posted on March 2020

​Whilst the last few weeks have been some of the most testing in recent times for those in the Financial Services industry, securing the best talent remains a high priority for a number of our clients and demonstrates they are committed to ensuring that their businesses are affected as little as possible by Covid-19.

Our clients have been particularly keen to hear our advice and views on how best to conduct their interview processes going forward. Given we work with a number of organisations across various locations in Europe, we are in a fortunate position to see many different approaches.

The most notable change we have seen is that current interview processes are having to be altered as the ability to conduct face to face meetings is impacted. Whilst this may not be the ideal, the silver lining is that we as an industry, and society, are in the fortunate position to benefit from the excellent technology available to us via the likes of Skype, Facetime, and Webex to minimise disruption. This has meant that interview processes have not been delayed, but simply taken a different route.
