Using Innovation to Attract Top Talent for our Clients

Back to Blogs

A multinational consumer goods company needed to revisit their recruitment processes at the onset of the pandemic. 

Key Challenge

With face-to-face interviews obsolete due to the pandemic and our client’s lengthy hiring processes seeing them lose top digital and technology talent to more nimble, fast-moving organisations, our MNC client required a remote, streamlined process to quickly innovate their recruitment practices.

The new recruitment process needed to enable our client to continue attracting the best candidates in the market, whilst allowing numerous key stakeholders and senior executives to screen multiple candidates quickly and simultaneously and ensure adherence to all the compliance legislation around hiring.

What We Did

Space Executive introduced a new smart, efficient video interview process. Candidates were sent pre-screening qualification questions and asked to submit their responses online in a short video. 

Space Executive would then work with the client to screen these responses before the pre-qualified candidate snippets were shared with key stakeholders and senior management prior to the commencement of the formal interview process.

Why Space Executive?

Using our in-depth knowledge of the client’s existing processes and the current recruitment market enabled Space Executive to work alongside the MNC as a consultative recruitment partner in implementing their remote recruitment practice. 

Working closely with our client we implemented an innovative recruitment process that facilitated the client’s ability to process more candidates in a much shorter timeframe while increasing the visibility of these candidates to senior management and all key stakeholders.

This new process has now replaced the client’s existing recruitment processes and is their principal, global recruitment practice.

Overall Benefits

  1. The video interview process enabled the client to process numerous candidates simultaneously, where previously sourcing and screening was a lengthy process taking several weeks and reliant on numerous individual contributors
  2. 60% reduction in time to hire 
  3. Our client is no longer losing top talent to faster, more nimble startups and organisations
