Breezy HR Makes Video Interviewing Tools Free Amid Pandemic
Breezy HR has made video assessment and interviewing tools free for business clients for a minimum of 60 days, in light of efforts to prevent COVID-19 pandemic spread.
Business continuity planning (BCP) efforts are in full swing as more businesses are moving to remote work arrangements in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Does your BCP extend to personnel related functions such as hiring? For many businesses, hiring for key roles will be impacted as candidates become unable or unwilling to attend in-person interviews.
Enter video interviewing, a growing trend in the recruiting space. Recruiting software providers, such as Breezy HR, are helping their clients maintain operations by making remote recruiting tools more easily accessible during this time.
Organizations may want to take advantage of tools like this for several reasons:
- Avoiding interruptions in hiring for critical roles
- Setting themselves apart from competitors by showcasing the ability to adapt to changing circumstances
- Enhancing their candidate experience by accommodating applicants' health concerns
Breezy HR's video capabilities include both pre-recorded video answers and real-time virtual interviews.
Breezy HR is currently third among leaders in the Recruiting space, according to SoftwareReviews:
