Executive Summary

We're so glad that you have joined us for the second State of Video in Talent (SOVT) report.

This year, we’re thanking more than 700 talent professionals who answered the call for help and made this the industry’s broadest and deepest research study. The result is a deep dive into the latest thinking on how video is being used to attract, engage and retain candidates in 2020-2021.

Now we’ve crunched the numbers, and created a roadmap to help video-heroes in the making, and guide you on the journey to overcome the global talent shortage! This report is your call to adventure. Read it well, and importantly - share it with your fellow talent professionals.

To say a lot has happened since our last report in 2019 is an understatement. We all experienced a decade’s worth of digital evolution in 12 months, as our industries searched for unique and creative ways to enhance business as (un)usual.

In this regard, talent acquisition is no exception. Traditional strategies for candidate attraction and engagement have fallen by the wayside as we navigate the bottleneck of a working-from-home world.

But what this era has clearly defined is the powerful way that video content dominates our social feeds. Video is more engaging, and it builds brand authenticity and tells your story in a way written words cannot.

Our report also reflects the current operating environment for those seeking to attract talent over the next 12 months. Right now, candidates hold the power as businesses in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and the United Kingdom experience an immense talent shortage and scramble to find suitable staff to fill job vacancies. Back in 2019, SOVT gauged how talent professionals view the impact of video and the value it adds. This year, we’re looking at video adoption and the different outputs, depending on strategy. We wanted to analyse the evolution of current and future video-heroes and how they developed video as their talent strategy superpower.

The talent community is already adopting many new innovations. While this report’s findings sit within the context of our existing adoption of digital technologies, we have sought to look closely at how talent engagement has evolved, and how this will continue to change in the future as we forge on to a new, hybrid, work-from-anywhere, digital world.

So, put your favorite superhero outfit on and let’s commence our journey shall we?

68% of respondents use video as part of their strategy, compared to 57% in 2019

The Pandemic. Let's Talk

Before we fly through the rest of the report, let's address the elephant in the room.

The pandemic has led to an increased reliance on technology to communicate. Our means of connection were reduced to two dimensions, but people across the world leveraged innovative and exciting new ways to counteract this and drive engagement.

When a crisis called, video answered.

In a sign of the times, the effects of the pandemic pushed organizations to rely on video more to attract candidates, but also to communicate a vision and keep top talent.

VideoMyJob - Pandemic
VideoMyJob - Pandemic Side Effects
Side Effects

Survey results show there is a clear correlation between the global pandemic and adoption of HR and recruitment technology

65% of respondents confirmed the pandemic accelerated HR and recruitment technology adoption

75% of respondents reported the value of video in recruitment has increased since the pandemic began

Almost one in four respondents reported the use of video to communicate executive and general communications, while, specifically during the pandemic, half of the respondents used video to help leaders communicate with their team during times of uncertainty. A further 46 percent implemented video to keep their dispersed workforce connected.

This increased with organization size: 47 percent of respondents from an organization with 100 - 1,000 employees are using video to help leaders communicate with their teams. This increased to 54 percent for organizations with more than 1,000 employees

47 percent of respondents from organizations with between 100 - 1,000 employees said they used video to help keep a dispersed workforce connected, and four in five respondents from both organization sizes reported using video to onboard new hires remotely.

Why Video. Why Now?

Let's get down to business.

Attracting the best talent in a noisy environment and enhancing the candidate experience were – unsurprisingly - key priorities for survey respondents and a common use case for video powers.

Consistent business drivers across organizations big and small

These metrics remain largely the same across organization sizes.

Organizations with 100 – 1,000 employees consider video useful to better attract top talent (50 percent) and enhance the candidate experience (46 percent). These organizations also demonstrated a focus on improving diversity and inclusion and support related programs (42 percent).

For organizations with 1,000+ employees, 70 percent of respondents use video content to support talent acquisition or recruitment marketing activity. These organizations placed a greater emphasis on attracting top talent (66 percent) and enhancing the candidate experience (46 percent) with video.

North America leads with talent attraction, while APAC and UK drive candidate experience

While key business drivers remained steady across regions and organization sizes, respondents from North America reported a strong emphasis on using video to attract top talent (67 percent) and enhancing the candidate experience (56 percent).

Where these respondents differ most from other regions is the priority they’re placing on improving diversity and inclusion and support programs, with 50 percent of respondents in North America reporting this as a focus, versus Asia Pacific at 36 percent and Europe at 34 percent.

Respondents from Asia Pacific countries reported that the most popular business driver for the video was to enhance the candidate experience (56 percent). This is also the case in European countries (38 percent).

Whilst video is great for attraction - I had many candidates say the ONLY reason they applied for my jobs was because they got a sense of the culture via the video - getting broader support from outside of HR or TA will help to make the implementation more successful.

Strategy In Action

It's one thing to have a strategy. It's another to put it in action successfully. So where are different organizations putting their investments to video?

While business drivers for implementing video remained similar across organizations and regions, the video strategy changed as we flew from country to country.

A common theme in strategy for our emerging and current heroes was the use of video to communicate with candidates during the recruitment process. This was the most reported strategy across all organization sizes and regions in our survey, with respondents in North America stating that this was their most-used video strategy (51 percent).

Other popular strategies differed slightly across the world. Respondents from North America chose to amplify their job ads featuring a recruiter or hiring manager (41 percent) and focused on capturing employee stories for employer branding communications (39 percent).

This differed from countries in Asia Pacific, where respondents were more likely to use video to amplify the employee value proposition more effectively (33 percent).

Respondents from the United Kingdom and European countries reported using video to amplify job ads (32 percent) and the employee value proposition (26 percent).

VideoMyJob - Betsie Hundt

My advice would be to start your video strategy with functions or people within your company that speak with customers or Partners often (Sales, Marketing, etc.). They most likely will be more willing to jump aboard videos and are often great advocates to speak highly of the company and culture.

Employee stories versus graduate programs

Almost nine in 10 survey respondents (88 percent) have experienced a moderate or significant benefit in social media engagement, while 90 percent also see a moderate or significant benefit in employer brand authenticity and awareness.

SOVT shows these benefits have resulted in delivering business impact across content engagement (26 percent), but importantly across candidate quality (25 percent) and time saved when hiring (19 percent).

In a reliable indicator of the efficacy of the three most popular strategies, 96 percent of respondents saw a moderate or significant benefit in candidate experience and engagement.

100 - 1,000 employees

Overall, respondents use video to:

47% - Communicate with candidates during the recruitment process

Video Maturity Model

We know that successfully leveraging video relies on consistency and experience, and progressing along the maturity curve of video adoption will drive stronger outcomes as more touchpoints in the candidate journey become optimized for engagement.

For the purposes of this report, we segmented video users into the following video adoption levels:

Planning

14% of respondents

Defining how they will use video in the candidate journey and solutions to support it

Beginner

33% of respondents

Using video for one or two parts of the candidate journey to prove the concept

Intermediate

37% of respondents

Using video for several stages of the candidate journey and measuring results

Advanced

16% of respondents

Deploying a video-led approach to candidate journey w/ supporting program management

The most advanced video adoption trends

The most advanced video adoption was found in North America and companies with 100 - 1,000 employees.

While key business drivers remained steady across regions and organization sizes, respondents from North America reported a strong emphasis on using video to attract top talent (67 percent) and enhancing the candidate experience (56 percent).

Where these respondents differ most from other regions is the priority they're placing on improving diversity and inclusion and support programs, with 50 percent of respondents in North America reporting this as a focus, versus Asia Pacific at 36 percent and Europe at 34 percent.

Respondents from Asia Pacific countries reported that the most popular business driver for the video was to enhance the candidate experience (56 percent). This is also the case in European countries (38 percent).

Interestingly, 22 percent of respondents from 100 - 1,000 employee organizations were advanced users, compared to just 9 percent of respondents from 1,000+ employee organizations.

Video Maturity 100 - 1,000 Employees

Respondents from these organizations were more likely to be intermediate users of video (33%) followed by beginners (26%).

The seismic shift in video maturity over 12 months

Encouragingly, many of our respondents are now on the pathway to video hero status! In the past 12 months, 27 percent of those who now identify as video beginners weren't using video at all, 33 percent were planning to use video and 35 percent were beginners. In this year's study, 48 percent were intermediate users, 26 percent made the progression from beginner to intermediate, and just 15 percent were still planning to use video.

From those who now identify as advanced video users, before the pandemic, 54 percent already employed a video-led approach, 26 percent were intermediate, eight percent were beginners and 10 percent were planning.

Unique benefits are reported as video strategies mature

Across thee board, as our video-heroes progress from beginner through to advanced, the benefits diversify along with them. A unique benefit to those in the beginner stage of video is to raise the profile of recruiters or talent acquisition people in their organization. Intermediate users see the quality of candidates improve alongside their increased usage of visual content. Finally for the video-led organizations, unique benefits such as company careers page traffic, time spent on career site, and volume of applicants increase as their strategy matures.

Beginner

  • 1 - Employer brand authenticity and awareness
  • 2 - Social media engagement and reach
  • 3 - Candidate experience and engagement
  • 4 - Job Ad reach or views
  • 5 - Raise the profile of recruiter to TA's
Intermediate

  • 1 - Employer brand authenticity and awareness
  • 2 - Candidate experience and engagement
  • 3 - Social media engagement and reach
  • 4 - Job Ad reach or views
  • 5 - Quality of candidates
Advanced

  • 1 - Candidate experience and engagement
  • 2 - Employer brand authenticity and awareness
  • 3 - Social media engagement and reach
  • 4 - Company careers page traffic and time spent on site
  • 5 - Volume applicants
Time and employee motivation biggest video challenges

Similar challenges appeared across the beginner and intermediate levels of adoption, with time and effort to create videos coming out on top as users learn to navigate a new content format. Advanced users found that motivating employees to create videos was their biggest challenge followed by video production costs. Interestingly as maturity progresses and organizations move towards video-led strategies, the challenge of measuring the impact and ROI decreases.

A Blueprint For ROI

So, who's getting the best results and how do they measure?

We know that video increases engagement, but those with a strong strategy and vision for video have a superpower, resulting in a meaningful impact and measurable ROI.

But creating impact is easier than you might think. Analyzing the patterns of our advanced users and those who return a strong ROI through video enables future video heroes to enhance their strategy.

Fifty-two percent of advanced users use employee stories, 50 percent use video job ads, while 62 percent of users who experienced a strong ROI use video job ads, and 51 percent use video in their recruitment process.


How to measure return on (video) investment

There are many ways to measure video ROI. From content engagement metrics, saving time and money in the recruitment process, candidate quality and experience to application volume and candidate diversity, ROI in the video is measurable across a range of areas, and is not limited to engagement.

Having a consistent video strategy is paramount to returning a strong video ROI.

The 28 percent of respondents who were unsure whether they experienced an ROI also had less aligned and focused strategies.

Of these respondents, just 31 percent are using video for candidate communications, 30 percent amplifying job advertisements, and 20 percent capturing employee stories.

Forty-three percent of these users also reported producing between 1 and 10 videos in the past 12 months – quality is key, but it will always be difficult to drive ROI with a low volume of video output.

Volume of videos strengthens ROI beyond content engagement

There is a correlation between those who report strong ROI on video and the number of videos produced. Two-thirds of respondents (66 percent) reporting a strong ROI say that they have produced between 10 - 100 videos in the past 12 months.

Of those who are unsure of whether their video activity has resulted in an ROI at this point, 43 percent of respondents say that they have produced between 1 and 10 videos in the past 12 months.

Of those who reported a strong ROI, the top three areas where respondents saw the most value were:

68%

Content engagement (reach, clicks, shares, views email open and click rate)

68%

Candidate quality (shortlist acceptance, interview to offer conversion, offer acceptance rate, quality of hire)

55%

Candidate Experience (Candidate/Employee satisfaction, Hiring Manager/Client satisfaction, Referral rate)

Weapons of mass (video) production

Your video doesn’t need to be directed by Spielberg and shot on SP BetaMax. Those who reported a strong ROI use an evenly distributed mix of smartphone-based and professional video production methods, ensuring their video is fit-for-platform.

Consistency of production plays a role in driving improved ROI – due to the producer’s ability to test and repeat over time.

Any videos result in better engagement
1 – 4 per month enhance the candidate experience
5+ per month generate better engagement, enhance the candidate experience and increase candidate quality and reduce time to fill roles.

The Journey Continues

Congratulations! You've now unlocked a new level of video superpowers! So, what's next?

Our survey has found that our respondents intend to continue the theme of 2021, as 73 percent of respondents plan to invest about the same or more in their video strategy over the next 12 months.

This year's key business drivers look set to continue:

Respondents have indicated the way they intend to achieve their talent goals is through employee stories (49 percent), video job advertisements (44 percent), and the production of "Day in the Life" videos (42 percent).

Using Video in the recruitment process is also a major part of the future plans of our respondents (37 percent) while improving the quality of videos is the primary focus (45 percent), followed by video engagement (31 percent).

VideoMyJob - Will Innes

No doubt in my mind that video will continue to accelerate in importance in terms of how it helps humanise talent strategies. [I hope] we see much higher levels of innovation in areas such as content production. It won't be enough to film the recruiter or hiring leader talking about a role, the material itself will need to inspire and move people to action.

Attracting candidates is a totally changed game. Skills shortages will be with us for a long time. It's no longer primarily your job to 'assess' candidates. That's the easy part. Build trust, attract them, engage with them, and bring them to the hiring table. That is going to need a new suite of tools and skills, and authentic displays of culture, brand and ethos will be front and centre.
