Time Consuming Candidate Screening and Interviewing Process

The HCL team was handling hundreds of applications and identifying the best-fit, and quality candidates from these numerous applications was time consuming. On top of that, scheduling initial screening interviews with candidates took up a lot of the team's bandwidth. HCL started looking for a more efficient, resource-friendly solution to their hiring workflow.

Asset 7

Screening Resumes - The team at HCL receives hundreds of resumes every week, of which only 3-5% were qualified as potential candidates. The team was looking for a solution to identify high quality candidates.

Asset 8

Efficiency - The team also spent 10-15 minutes on an initial screening call with all candidates, with many not meeting the baseline standards for HCL.

Asset 9

Productivity - The recruitment team spent time and resources on coordinating schedules with candidates for the initial screening call, taking time away from other hiring-related activities. 

Added Convenience with Talview Interviews

Talview’s solution to this problem was to use their video interviewing capabilities to record the initial screening. Asynchronous video interviews gave the team members the flexibility to conduct the interviews at their own time, saving the time they spent on planning and scheduling these interviews. The initial screening task could also be divided efficiently among the team members.

The team also could evaluate the dedication and interest levels of the candidate, assess candidate comfort with the fundamentals, thought processes, and communication skills.

Interviewing Process was Manual and Tedious

The Talent Acquisition Team conducted the basic shortlisting of the profiles. They completed a non-technical shortlisting of the resumes, perusing them for keywords, immigration and visa statuses, notice periods, etc.

The resumes were then forwarded to the Delivery Team. The Delivery Team would conduct an initial 10-minute screening call with these applicants to look for their technical grasp over Java with a few basic questions. The selected candidates were then invited for a technical interview that was conducted by the Delivery Manager.
