The Telegraph Business Club is profiling Compact Interview in a new film and talks to top executives at The Lanesborough and InterContinental London Park Lane about the benefits of video recruitment. The film will be posted on the Telegraph site next month but I’m pleased to offer you an exclusive peek.
Watch the video here:
In the film, my colleague Matt Evans and I discuss the reasons we created our video interviewing software and the benefits the system provides HR professionals and hiring managers, including:
• Improved recruitment efficiency
• Reducing the cost of hiring
• Assessing candidates’ soft-skills
• Reaching and engaging with graduates and global candidates
Contributing to this short film are senior managers from London’s top hotels who discuss the merits of video interviewing.
Anja Henschel, Human Resources Manager at InterContinental London Park Lane is one of our clients who reports an increase in efficiency since she began using video interviews to pre-screen candidates.
Paula McColgan, Director of Sales & Marketing at The Lanesborough, is considering using video interviewing as part of their recruitment process to better assess soft-skills and attract overseas candidates.

Paula McColgan, Director of Sales & Marketing, The Lanesborough:
“I think this is leading technology. It’s the way forward.”
