Bolt Talent Solutions is launching a best-in-class automated video interviewing platform to support HR leaders, business owners and corporates in Mauritius, as an innovative tool to promote efficiency, convenience and safety in the hiring process in the light of COVID-19.
Bolt Talent Solutions, a global recruitment agency based in Mauritius, has today announced the launch of the ‘Game Changer’ video interviewing platform to support HR leaders, business owners and corporates in Mauritius in the light of COVID-19.
Bolt Talent Solutions is offering one-way and on-demand live video interviewing software, which will allow HR leaders, business owners and corporates to find the right talent faster than ever before. The software will make the collaboration between recruiters and hiring managers far more effective than traditional telephone or face to face interviewing. In view of the current situation post COVID-19, Bolt Talent Solutions is making the software available to all at no cost for the first 60 days.
These days, candidates expect an almost instant response to their application, a smooth interview process and rapid time to hire. When it comes to acquiring top talent, the race is on, and companies need to use every tool at their disposal to shorten the recruiting process, improve quality and, provide a positive experience for the candidate.
Traditional interviewing methods can waste a lot of time and resources between scheduling conflicts, no shows and unsuitable candidates. For recruiters, time wasted on scheduling means time taken away from more meaningful tasks like building relationships with candidates, building talent communities and improving employer brand and talent attraction strategies. For candidates, where interviews have to be re-scheduled it can send a negative signal about the organisation. The video interviewing software can help to overcome many of these challenges.
Commenting on the launch of the video interviewing software platform, Vanessa Flynn, Founder and CEO of Bolt Talent Solutions said:
“The demand for top talent has never been greater to overcome the economic and socio-economic challenges being faced globally, after the coronavirus outbreak brought the world to a standstill.”
“During the lockdown, we took the decision to focus our energy on innovating through the adversity that COVID-19 posed. We learned that our clients were looking for new ways to hire talent while reducing the risks associated with meeting candidates in person. We are now launching the video interviewing software to support organisations as they strive to provide a safe environment for their staff and for candidates. We believe that our tool has a key role to play at the pre-screening stage, by reducing the need for physical meetings. It can also help organisations to expedite the recruitment process and the quality of hires, while demonstrating their commitment to promoting innovative technologies and agility when it comes to remote hiring and working.”
In terms of how the process works, the recruiters create a job profile on the software platform, based on a meeting with the hiring organisation which can also provide inputs for the questions. Candidates receive a link to complete a video interview in their own time and on any smart device. The hiring organisation is then able to view, rate, comment and share shortlisted interviews with key decision makers at any time from anywhere. This shortens the recruitment cycle time, as it means that hiring manager can focus their energies on only interviewing the candidates who are the best fit.
Regarding the rollout of the video interviewing software in Mauritius, Elizabeth Keeve, Managing Partner of Bolt Talent Solutions, said:
“While the impact of COVID-19 in Mauritius will be substantial, according to official forecasts, there will still be vacancies that will need to be filled on the island, especially in the IT sector. We are convinced that our innovative tool will deliver a number of concrete benefits in terms of convenience, efficiency and safety as companies in Mauritius slowly return to work and seek to hire new staff to work either at their premises or remotely.”
“We know that HR leaders, business owners and corporates in Mauritius are currently working around the clock to ensure they all adhere to the correct health and safety regulations. To support them in ensuring effective and streamlined recruitment, hiring, and onboarding, we are making our video interviewing tool available to everyone at no cost for 60 days,” Elizabeth added.
“Bolt Talent Solutions is excited to be at the forefront of driving the digital transformation in Mauritius and supporting local and global businesses in attracting, integrating and retaining the right talent,” Elizabeth concluded.
