International assessment specialist cut-e and video interview provider ZeroLime have launched a complete mobile-enabled selection tool – combining assessments and a competency-based video interview – to make it quicker and easier for organisations of all sizes to recruit new staff.
Called VIPA (which stands for Video Interview and Psychometric Assessment), the new tool creates a short application form, with questions and eligibility checks, that candidates complete on an Apple or Android device. Any of cut-e’s personality, ability or situational judgement tests can be included or customised assessments can be created. Each candidate then records themselves answering competency-based questions. After reviewing the video interviews of candidates who achieved the required score in the assessments, recruiters can create a shortlist of those with the desired communication skills and motivation.
“VIPA offers a quick, convenient, mobile-enabled recruitment option that provides a great candidate experience,” said Dr Achim Preuss, Chief Technology Officer of cut-e. “A key benefit is that candidates don’t have to change devices to apply for a role. It also saves time for recruiters by delivering rigorous assessment and a competency-based video interview. We can recommend specific assessments to suit a wide range of job roles, so you can ensure that you’ll fairly and objectively recruit candidates who will be the right fit for the role and for your organisation.”
Unlike other video interview options, VIPA is not a module which sits on an Applicant Tracking System. However, it can complement an ATS if required.
