Challenge

Tech Data relies on a field sales team to deliver the insights and optimized solutions that their channel partners need to compete in the tech market today, tomorrow and into the future. This job requires sales professionals who are skilled at building relationships and willing to go the extra mile for customers.

Tech Data’s hiring teams knew that resumes would not be enough to identify highly talented salespeople for these roles.

Solution

In 2014, Tech Data launched Wepow video interviewing to assess candidates for field sales positions and other roles across the company. Thanks to on-demand and live video interviews, hiring teams can make more informed decisions about who should be called in for an in-person interview.

Compared to traditional phone screens, video interviewing is more efficient and more engaging. “It’s great to see candidates smile and sell themselves!” says Field Sales Manager, Joe Frisbie.

The time savings has been enormous, allowing recruiters to be more strategic and partner more effectively with our managers. I could not imagine recruiting in today’s environment without WePow!

Results

Because video interviewing empowers hiring teams to vet talent more thoroughly and more quickly than ever before, Tech Data is now equipped to hire salespeople who are passionate, determined, and ready to succeed in the role. Video interviewing has been a success outside of sales hiring as well.

According to Rosie Alonso, Manager of Talent Acquisition, “WePow has become an integral part of our recruiting process. It’s helped us build out pipelines for all of our high volume roles and internship programs.”

I give WePow a 10 out of 10. It’s become a crucial part of my hiring process, and I can’t imagine hiring without it.
