Given that more and more tech companies today have a globally distributed team, it would be great to hear about your top best practices when it comes to using videos for recruitment.

“Show off the culture as much as possible – the term “culture fit” is a big part of hiring new employees as you want someone that’s qualified skill-wise but also shares similar goals and visions as the team they are joining.”

“Encourage a video back – instead of a standard resume, ask candidates to send a video back that shows off their best qualities and why they are the best for the company.”

How would you advise hiring teams optimize their HR-Tech stack to include various aspects of behavioral skills into their overall recruitment strategy?

“DISC is a preferred tool you can legally use in pre-screening candidates since it focuses on normal behavior and job-specific behaviors. We recommend using it as early as possible in pre-screening, then maybe adding some other management and leadership components during the interview and final screening process. As one of our clients told us, “You show us things we wouldn’t otherwise know until people are on the job at least 6 months. You show us the real person we are dealing with in our interviews.”
