FPSG launches Effect-IV

Timesaver - With our new product, you no longer need telephone interviews. We can use customised questions, given to us by you, and incorporate these into our initial candidate screening. You will able to watch and hear the candidates’ responses and gauge their reactions first hand.

Logistics - You can interview our candidates from your office. You can arrange for several colleagues to join in wherever they are. The recording can be shared with those who couldn’t join the interview at the time. No more planning or syncing calendars to find a day where 5 hiring managers have a free slot.

Money saver - Recorded video interviews can be seen anywhere and at any time. Recruiting can take valuable time out of your daily work routine and any time spent on recruitment is time lost on your day to day duties, which inevitably will cost your company money. Effect-IV can save you both time and money by reducing the need for conducting multiple screening interviews for multiple candidates. FPSG will conduct all pre-screening interviews on your behalf using Effect-IV and you will receive all video interviews in one quick link which you can then view at anytime, anywhere and on any device with an internet connection.

To find out how Effect-IV can help your recruitment needs, contact your Account Manager at FPSG or enquiries@fpsg.com, and they will guide with you all the information you will need.
