Meet & Engage introduce live streaming to their offer

 

When Meet & Engage was founded in 2015, they always intended to let advances in technology enhance their product offering. Already the creators of an award-winning live candidate engagement platform, they’ve recently launched a live video streaming product. Its aim is to support employers to drive candidate experience in the places and ways the audience is most familiar with.

Employers can host group events using live streaming supported by moderated live chat, all within a personalised, branded environment. The possibilities for its use are numerous. It can be used to challenge misconceptions. It can be used to keep candidates warm. It can be used to give a remote applicant authentic visibility as to what it’s like to work for a given client. In any of these scenarios, showing an audience what you’re trying to convey is arguably more compelling than telling them. Any live footage has the added advantage of being downloaded and repurposed for online distribution.

Ali Hackett, Director at Meet & Engage said, “We’ve seen the rising impact of Facebook Live and the use of LinkedIn to stream content – there’s clearly an appetite to consume media in this way and we know how powerful video can be. Employers are looking for ways to differentiate and provide a tailored candidate experience - this is an exciting way to deliver on this.”

Graham Shroll, Technical Director at Meet & Engage told us, “We continue to see the trend in candidates demanding greater access to businesses as well as employers seeking new ways to create differentiation. As video on careers websites and social channels becomes more highly favoured by both candidates and social algorithms, adding live video to a discussion is a natural extension of this. As part of the candidate engagement toolset, live video brings a really powerful dimension into the chat and stimulus mix: The perceived value of the overall discussion is greater and feels more human to all participants. We believe live streaming will become the next de-facto standard engagement tool and I’m very proud and excited to announce its launch.”
