Hiring By Video.

Hiring well is one of the most crucial things any company does. New start-up enRecruite is launching today to help recruiters and managers use video to hire better, smarter, faster.

The London-based venture, founded by serial entrepreneur Martin Warner, attacks the most time-consuming, painful part of the process: interview selection. ”There are four stages to the hiring process,” Warner told VentureBeat in an exclusive interview: finding candidates, the interview selection process, the actual interviews, and finally the HR details. “60% of the hiring life-cycle is in the interview selection process.”
