How to succeed in remote recruitment?

The health crisis is having a strong impact on the economic dynamic, but fortunately many companies are still recruiting. Like home working, distance interviews were initially perceived negatively, but today they even seem to be appreciated by recruiters and candidates. So how do you succeed in hiring in this imposed context of distancing?

Candidates are ready for distance recruitment 

Candidates are ready for distance recruitment
According to the CCLD study, 87% of respondents are inclined to be hired through video interviewing. Those who have already experimented with this method say that it completely meets their expectations:

  • understanding the job’s missions
  • understanding the company’s strategy
  • be aware of the expectations of the management

8 out of 10 respondents appreciate the ” convenience “, the ” reactivity “, the ” time saving ” and the ” active listening ” of these distant exchanges. A modality that therefore changes nothing in terms of substance.

The limits 

Despite some of the advantages of distance interviews, it is not always easy to identify the candidate’s potential and more specifically his or her soft skills . This is why it is important to use qualification support systems to secure recruitment. As a reminder, 1/3 of open-ended contracts in France do not last beyond the first year, even though this statistic was drawn up on recruitments carried out mainly in person.

How can remote recruitment be carried out successfully ?
