As a staffing agency professional, you want to find your clients the best talent as soon as possible. You’re confident you can find them an amazing candidate, especially because you’re using video interviewing. The next step now is to truly show your clients the talent you’ve located. 


Video interviewing has changed the way staffing firms collaborate with their clients. No longer do you need to rely on sending resumes or exchanging dozens of emails once you find a candidate; now you can simply send a link of a video interview to your client. 


By using video interviewing, staffing professionals can show their clients top talent instead of telling them about it. This enables clients to give real-time feedback, making faster hiring decisions. Clearly, collaboration through video interviewing makes the hiring process run more smoothly. 


One-way video offers a hands-on approach that gives your clients more power during the hiring process. If you’ve been looking to improve your interaction with clients, here are some ways video interviewing can improve client collaboration:


Keep clients in the loop.


Video interviewing makes it easier for staffing professionals to communicate with their clients throughout the interview process. By sharing shortlisted video interviews with clients, you can introduce employers to talent, keeping them involved.


Additionally, you can collaborate with your client and re-watch the interview as often as you or they would like.


Create a database of high quality candidates.


With collaboration comes the ability for your entire staffing firm to create a database of high quality candidates. This is beneficial to both you and the client, as these video interviews -- and the associated feedback from the first time they were reviewed, is still on file. 


By maintaining a digital library of video interviews, staffing professionals can pull from this database at anytime when they need to fill a job order. This makes it easier to interview and place candidates on an ongoing basis.


Interviews can be performed anywhere and at any time. 


One of the best perks of using video interviewing is staffing professionals can conduct interviews on an ongoing basis. This is a huge benefit because you don’t have to worry about scheduling interviews or spending money on travel costs. 


Prepare candidates for client interviews. 


Finally, staffing firms can use one-way video interviews to prepare candidates to present themselves in the best light and secure their chances of the impending client interview. Since ultimately the candidate has unlimited takes in the recording process with one-way video interviews, you have the perk of working closely with them to be certain they get it just right. So while you coach your candidates through the process you’re able to ensure they’re presenting the very best side of themselves and you are presenting a very polished end-product to your client. 


These are just a few of the ways staffing firms can use video interviewing to improve collaboration with employers. Not only does video interviewing help staffing firms find the best talent, but it also makes it easier for employers to make a hiring decision.
