If you’re a third party recruiter working from a home office you may not have the ideal meeting space to conduct an interview – professional setting, quiet, confidential and comfortable. Or perhaps you are in Human Resources and are working a highly confidential search and are anxious about bringing candidates into the office. What are your options? A coffee shop? Home office? Never ideal – do you really want to bring strangers into your home or have the people at the next table over-hearing your conversation?
I have interviewed candidates in a coffee shop and the noise, interruptions and lack of privacy aside it just doesn’t set the right professional tone.
In my opinion, a business centre is the only way to go. Whether you want to rent a shared work space, your own office or make use of meeting space as needed, it just makes sense.
Everything you need is provided so you can just walk in, open up your laptop and be ready to go!
Your candidates will have a great first impression after being greeted by a friendly and professional receptionist, offered a beverage (saving you making the coffee!) and a seat while they wait. No more searching faces and tables to make sure you find the right person in the café – and hoping you can get a seat in a quieter corner!
The same professionalism and amenities apply even when you’re conducting a video interview.
With Toronto Meetings, you can easily plug into our 65 inch screens equipped with Polycom video conference cameras which automatically tracks new speakers so you don’t need to stay fixed to your chair.
All of our rooms have been designed with acoustics in mind so there is no need for microphones as sound will clearly carry throughout the space and that space only. People in the next meeting room will not over-hear your conversation.
Our technology is cross compatible with any platform you prefer such as Skype, Zoom, Webex, etc.
