“Video is how we connect with people in our personal lives, and how companies must engage with talent,” said Alykhan Rehmatullah, vice president of content strategy at iCIMS and previously the co-founder & CEO of Altru Labs. “Creating video content doesn’t have to be hard, time consuming or costly. We are seeing first-hand the value of video in humanizing brands, creating digitally-scalable experiences, and authentically building relationships with talent.”
Leading employers, including Valvoline and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, rely on iCIMS’ Video Studio as a critical piece of their talent technology stack to drive digital engagement.
“Authenticity is critical in successful recruitment; job seekers and candidates demand it,” said Brandie Dawson, director of global talent acquisition and candidate experience at Valvoline. “With iCIMS’ Video Studio, we can now be more authentic and transparent with our candidates through the voice of our own employees. The video content is unscripted, honest, and real. Research shows that video can drive engagement and the amount of time spent on websites. It’s game-changing, and every organization should be thinking about it as part of their talent strategy.”
“Virtual recruiting is here to stay for the foreseeable future and video is a key aspect of that,” said Madeline Laurano, founder of Aptitude Research. “Employers should be engaging with both current and potential employees through video to establish and build on that human connection. iCIMS’ investment in video storytelling capabilities is a wise one. There is so much video can do for employers beyond career sites and it’s something that the market will truly benefit from.”
