Today’s world is ever-changing due to the rapid release of new technologies on the daily. Up until now, hologram technology has played an important role in storytelling and movies. In popular films, like Black Panther, characters brought holograms to life in the palm of their hands, instead of picking up a phone, or in Star Wars where R2-D2 streams a holographic message from Princess Leia begging Obi-Wan Kenobi for help. These scenes made a lasting impression on the minds of many, and some have started to channel that type of technology and re-imagined how it’s used. These fantasy scenes may soon be a reality in our world, and dare we say our work and hiring processes? At Rooster we’re always tracking the latest trends and companies like Google and Microsoft are on the precipice of making it happen. That Zoom meeting is about to get taken up a level!
Interviewing May Never Be the Same
COVID-19 changed the way we do a lot of things. One of those things was interviewing. Gartner found that during the pandemic, nearly 90% of organizations were conducting virtual interviews to hire for open positions. That same survey shared that 85% of organizations were using new technology to onboard their employees from afar. While the trend started during the pandemic, we think it’s here to stay—but it may be taken up a notch with new tech in development.
People are getting sick of screen-to-screen interaction. They’re missing face-to-face. But they also love the option to work remotely. So how do you fix that? Hologram technology creates that hybrid!
Companies are creating 3-D display systems that will enable hologram collaboration in virtual meeting spaces. So, you and a colleague or candidate can both be in the same “room” working on a virtual project together on a digital whiteboard. One company in particular, ARHT Media, has created a suite of products that projects three-dimensional, life size displays of people right into the meeting space without the need for any sort of glasses or eyewear. Pretty neat, right? Then you have Microsoft, who just created a solution called Microsoft Mesh which enables “holoportation”—a 3-D beam of a lifelike image. It was just launched earlier this year at Microsoft’s Ignite digital conference where the keynote speaker was “holoported” in. They anticipate being able to use this in meetings for further virtual collaboration for teams. It eliminates the boundaries of hiring, too.
As a remote first company, Rooster values the option to bring in capable team members from across the globe. With technology like this that simulates face-to-face interaction, not only will you be able to collaborate better with your teams, but you’ll also be able to create greater connections with your potential candidates, regardless of their locale. It will truly transform the interview process and we can’t wait to see it in action.
Rooster is Designing the Interview Scheduling of the Future
Just as the interview experience itself will be transformed over time, the interview scheduling process will never be the same either. Rooster is designing the foundation for the future interview scheduling—which we will hopefully be able to pair with this epic technology someday. Through creation of automated solutions that eliminate the need for extra headcount and streamline the candidate experience, it’s a win-win for teams everywhere. In ten years, no one will be scheduling interviews manually anymore. So, join us now on the horizon of a new era for talent acquisition and get ahead of your competition to grow your team!
