  • Companies such as Old Mutual and Deloitte make use of Wamly’s one-way video interviews to hire better people, faster. 
  • The software allows candidates to complete a video without the hiring panel being present, and the company reviewing it in their own time. 
  • It has been found to cut as much as 80% of the time companies would’ve spent on hiring. 

A number of large companies in South Africa, including hospitality group Ocean Basket, financial services group Old Mutual and Deloitte have started making use of Wamly’s recruitment video software to hire better people faster.

Recruitment video software from Wamly allows companies to send applicants a link to complete a one-way video interview without the hiring panel being present.

The company can then review the interview in their own time, reviewing as many as 30 interviews in an hour, and cutting as much as 70% of the time they would’ve spent on hiring.

The top-rated candidate is either hired or invited for a final face-to-face interview before an offer is made.

Typically, an HR video interview lasts anything between five and 15 minutes, in contrast to an hour a panel would typically have to spend interviewing candidates.

It is up to the discretion of the company how many questions are asked during an HR video interview. But, the typical HR video interview has five to eight questions, with 30 seconds to one minute to respond to each question.
