At Hunter Recruitment Group we love learning more about people than the skills set out in a resume and asking the ‘why’ questions as part of shortlisting is key.
We now do this and more via bespoke one-way video interviewing.
For each role we are filling for our clients we create a personalised question set and have our shortlist respond via one-way video interviews. As a business owner or hiring manager now you get to see a resume but also see & hear from the candidate and make a more informed shortlisting decision.
This cuts down hours of wasted interview time for our clients and also has created more effective recruitment outcomes.
The future is now, it’s time to embrace a more modern recruitment process by engaging HRG to source your next great hire.

Recruitment is so much more than finding a simple skills match – job and person. You always hear professionals sprout about the key fit in terms of culture. Making sure an individual fits the values of the organisation is imperative and I totally agree but I think as business owners and managers you need to also evaluate the motivation for application.
I am a convert to the Simon Sinek ways and so the first question you should ask is WHY?
Why do you want to work in this role?
Why do you want to work for this company?
Why do you want to work in this industry?
Why do you want to work in this geographical location?
These are really important questions that will lead to understanding the candidates reasoning and will lead to true employment fit. If someone is motivated in ways that do not match what you can provide or what is on offer the relationship is destined to fail.
At the screening phase of recruitment understanding the way to ask these questions is important to start to paint a richer and fuller picture to test if the fit is there to proceed to interview.
Validating the motivations or the WHY at interview is critical. Here is where you can read body language to understand if the candidates motivations are authentic and if they fit the need of your business.
You hear and read all about retention and how to motivate staff, personal motivation is the building blocks to getting this right. If you understand the WHY someone works for your business or WHY they work in the sector you can understand from the start if this employment relationship is going to be fruitful for both parties.
So next time you are recruiting be sure to add the WHY questions to your interview and this will help you become a more effective business through smarter placements.

Over the past week we have been working with clients that still need staff but are unsure how to engage.
One great example was a client seeking sector experience which would be extremely difficult to attract in the present market. We have worked with them to re-engineer the current workflow to allow currently experienced staff to take more of the sector style work and have sourced a suitable individual to take care of the immediate need to support the business.
This will be completed as a 6 month contract , when HRG and the client can re-evaluate the situation and potentially go back to recruiting the sector experience they desire.
Now is the time to Re-think how we engage and HRG are the experts to assist with planning and executing such hires during this Covid-19 disruption.
