Ep22: Remote Interviewing

The Burn Up - All Things Agile

We strongly believe that organisations with a successful future are those that embrace remote working practices. Not only does this address some of the challenges posed by the current Covid-19 crisis, but overall, allows organisations tap into a wider talent pool, work with a wider client base and most importantly make for better work life balance. In this episode we discuss remote interviewing with 6 super interesting guests….

We have recently co-written a blog-post on remote interviewing and my business partners at Equal Experts have extensively discussed remote working practices in their free remote working playbook.

But writing about it, is one thing, hearing it from the horse’s mouth is different altogether. In this Burn Up Episode, we chat with 5 guests, all with extensive experience in remote interviewing.

We talk about whether remote interviewing works, whether it’s a stop-gap measure or there to stay, and how to be successful at it, as interviewer and candidate alike.
