Virtual hiring is a process that has increased in popularity over the last few years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and is a process that most often involves remote hiring.


What is Virtual Recruiting, and How is it Useful to My Business?

Virtual recruiting allows your recruitment process to exist purely digitally, without the need to book out meeting rooms for interviews, or schedule face-to-face interactions.

Software like Oleeo allows you to go paperless with your recruitment strategy, and you can choose your approach in the form of an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) or Candidate Relationship Management (CRM).


Virtual Hiring is a Great Way to Cut Recruitment Costs

According to a study by Glassdoor, the average cost of hiring an employee in the US is estimated at around $4,000 and can take an average of fourteen days.

This makes recruitment one of the most expensive overheads for a company to have. However, using a virtual hiring platform can enable you to cut costs on expenses like travel and accommodation, as well as the costs associated with paper and printing.


It Make Your Business More Efficient

As all the paperwork for each candidate is stored digitally, this reduces the risk of breaches of GDPR and CCPA policies, and can help to streamline your hiring process by keeping information confidential and accessible.

You can also pack your calendar more efficiently with the help of virtual recruiting by scheduling back to back interviews with the auto-scheduling tool.
Without the need for travelling to and fro, you never need to worry about leaving big gaps for transition periods, and you can feel rest assured that you’ll be making the best use of your time.


A Virtual Hiring Platform Creates Quality Hiring

A virtual hiring platform , like Oleeo’s software, provides the very best quality hiring process for your candidates, with automated communication and video technology that will mimic the interaction and engagement of a face-to-face interview.

The automated communicative element of the process allows for each candidate to receive a prompt response to their application, and the integration of artificial intelligence provides a fair and equal treatment to each candidate by removing bias.

Additionally, Oleeo software can analyse data input by the candidate to ensure you are receiving the best possible match for your company, including skill set, personal experience and qualifications.
