New platform helps recruiters run bias-free video assessments

Employers can now create, implement and analyse bias-free, data-driven video assessments, using a new platform launched today by assessment specialist cut-e.

Called vidAssess, the platform helps recruiters to create a customised interview experience that focuses on the requirements of the role, enabling them to see and hear candidates at an early stage of the selection process. It offers the logistical freedom to conduct many more candidate interviews and to quickly and consistently assess each person’s suitability for the job.

vidAssess helps recruiters to define the relevant competencies and behaviours that are critical for success in any role; create a pool of questions that will reveal the required competencies and set up and manage ‘interview projects’. Candidates are given preparation time to respond to each question, so they can gather their thoughts and give their best answer. Assessors can quickly shortlist appropriate candidates, by rating their answers against the established competencies.

The ‘candidate view’ can be branded with an organisation’s logo and colour scheme. Introductory and closing text or video messages can also be embedded to welcome and thank candidates, and to reinforce the hiring organisation’s employer brand.

vidAssess is included in cut-e’s assessment hub, so candidates can access their video assessment and any other relevant assessments with the convenience of a single sign-in. Customisable reports can be created as well as predictive talent analytics, using the data from successful candidates. The platform can be integrated with Applicant Tracking Systems.
