The Future of Recruitment: VR for Efficient Hiring

May 29, 2024

Virtual Reality (VR) in recruitment processes is becoming an increasingly popular tool that allows for more efficient and cost-effective human resource management. VR enables not only more interactive and advanced training methods but also becomes a key element in the process of verifying the skills of job candidates, which is especially important in projects requiring the employment of many people.

The Costs of Traditional Recruitment

Traditional recruitment methods, especially those associated with hiring for large projects, can generate huge costs. Each stage—from CV selection, through interviews, to practical tests—requires time and resources, which, when recruiting dozens of people, translates into significant expenditures. Using VR can significantly reduce these costs by 30-90% by transferring some of the recruitment processes to the virtual world.

How VR in Recruitment Works?

Companies that use VR in recruitment often divide the process into two phases. The first phase is the preliminary selection in the virtual world, where candidates go through various simulations and skill tests using VR. For example, in technical industries, a candidate may be asked to perform specific tasks on virtual machine models, which allows for the assessment of their skills, manual coordination, and muscle memory without the risk of damaging expensive equipment. This approach allows for the quick and effective elimination of individuals who do not meet the technical requirements at an early stage of selection.

Who Uses VR in Recruitment?

  • Europa Jobs: Europa Jobs uses VR to enhance the recruitment process by providing immersive simulations for candidates, ensuring a better match between the job requirements and the candidates' skills.
  • Eu Workers: This company uses VR to verify the skills of welders from Africa, Asia, and Europe in the recruitment process. Only after successful completion of the task in VR (sample, position, parameters, reading WPS) is the person directed to the exam at the actual welding site.
  • Accenture: This company uses VR for task simulations and skill assessments, allowing for more precise matching of candidates to specific roles within the organization.
  • Deutsche Bahn: This German railway operator uses VR to simulate the work of a train driver, allowing candidates to practically test their skills under controlled conditions.
  • Walmart: This well-known retail giant uses VR not only for employee training but also to assess skills and prepare for work at specific positions.

Benefits of Using VR in Recruitment

Using VR in the recruitment process brings a range of benefits. Beyond the obvious cost savings, VR allows for a more advanced and precise assessment of candidates' skills. It is also a way to increase the attractiveness of the company as a modern employer, which is particularly important in attracting young, technologically advanced talents. Additionally, VR increases the safety of recruitment processes by eliminating the risk of accidents with actual equipment.

VR is revolutionizing recruitment processes, allowing companies to manage talents more effectively. By using advanced simulations and skill tests, companies can assess future employees faster and more accurately, resulting in significant time and resource savings. Moreover, the algorithms used in the VR recruitment process can assess a person's work just as well, or sometimes even better than a human recruiter. This is possible by eliminating subjective factors such as likes or dislikes, which increases the objectivity and fairness of the selection process. Eliminating human errors in assessment allows for more fair and precise matching of candidates to specific roles, which in turn contributes to better employee fit and increased work efficiency.

This approach not only speeds up the recruitment process and reduces costs associated with personnel mistakes but also improves the quality and fairness of assessment processes, leading to better human resource management and company development. The use of VR in recruitment opens new opportunities for enterprises wishing to manage talents innovatively and effectively, creating a more engaged and effective work environment.
