3 advantages of using Skype for Business in HR

Do you feel like you’re working more, have less time, and the workday seems to fly by? These days, you need to be able to work smarter to meet your manager’s and customers’ expectations. But what tools can help you to achieve that?

More and more professionals have been adopting Skype for Business in HR to assist with their productivity. In this blog, we will share 3 tips to help you understand Skype for Business and how it can benefit you and your team.

1. Communicate quickly, easily and anywhere

The instant messaging feature in Skype for Business is the perfect tool to allow you to communicate quickly and easily with your colleagues. If you prefer to communicate verbally, you can use the Skype voice or video features. All of this can be accessed on any device, which means you and your team can be in constant communication.

2. More effective and cost efficient interviews

Interviewing can be costly to companies however, they can be easily conducted using the Skype video conferencing tool. By using this feature, you can interview a candidate in any geographic location, once you’re both connected via Skype for Business or Skype. Our team find it highly effective as they are predominantly based in Brisbane, but are easily able to interview a candidate who is located across Australia, or anywhere in the World! If you are both using Skype for Business, you can also present a document by using the Skype share functionality.

You’ll also win some brownie points with your manager and CFO, as using Skype for Business to conduct interviews negates the need for flights and accommodation, providing massive cost savings.

3. Record interviews

Using the record feature enables you to record meetings or interviews, when both parties are using Skype for Business. This allows you to show appropriate stakeholders a replay, after the interview has been conducted. This is handy if a manager needs to take unexpected leave – instead of prolonging the interview process, the interview can be conducted and then replayed. This can also be a great tool to compare interviews to ensure you hire the right person – just don’t forget you need to advise your candidate before hitting record.

These are just some of the many technology productivity tips for HR Professionals.
