New Report! Video Trends in the Staffing Industry

October 24, 2011 15 comments

If you are using or considering video as a staffing or recruiting company, Vipe is offering a free benchmarking report to help you set & manage expectations. We analyzed a sampling of 25K videos  to see how usage trends have changed over the past 3 years – and some results were surprising!

For example, did you know that if you remotely invited a candidate to record videos on their own, you could expect a 2.5 day turnaround in 2009, but in 2011 the average response time is less than 6.5 hours?!

The following topics were reviewed:vipe video cheat sheet - video trends in the staffingindustry

  • Candidate video lengths
  • Number of video interview questions asked
