This hour long webcast presented by Rosen – author of “The Safe Hiring Manual” – and co-sponsored by leading video interviewing provider Montage will leave attendees better educated and equipped for conversations about how employers can enjoy the many operational and strategic benefits of video interviewing while eliminating exposure to discrimination laws and remaining in compliance.

Although video interviewing is gaining widespread acceptance for hiring and Talent Acquisition (TA), some employers express concern over potential discrimination issues. However, the advantages of video interviewing outweigh unsubstantiated risks about potential issues with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

Talent acquisition leaders are looking carefully into the business benefits of video interviewing every day. Many need strong reinforcement when facing internal naysayers: legal, compliance, risk, and others. This webcast presents some actionable, fact-based information for overcoming those objections since the benefits of video interviewing are too great to wait any longer.

The webinar “Video Interviewing & Compliance – Getting Up, Over & Beyond the Hesitation” is approved for 1.0 HR Certification Institute (HRCI) General Recertification Credits and 1.0 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Professional Development Credits (PDCs).
