January 31, 2022
Lyreco DK first started using cases to hire the right candidate for their customer care position. After experiencing just how much time was saved by using cases in the recruitment process, Lyreco DK decided to use case screening in their other open positions, such as warehouse operator, to help find the best talent in a large pool of candidates.

"We used the Casefair platform to find the best candidate for our warehouse position. We were able to save the time of our hiring managers by bringing cases to the screening and interview process." - Nigheena Corap, Talent Acquisition Specialist, Lyreco DK
Bringing case screening to the process also helped Lyreco DK find candidates who fit their corporate culture :
"We found the best talent through case screening - Using the Casefair video interview tool made a great difference for us, as we could see the candidate. This helped us find out the motivation of the applicant and get a feeling for how well they communicate, so it made a big difference for us to have Video Interviewing in the cases. - Nigheena Corap, Talent Acquisition Specialist, Lyreco DK
How does case screening help hiring managers find the best talent? When completing a job-specific case, candidates need to show enthusiasm and possess a drive to succeed. Cases narrow down the talent pool by ensuring that candidates show this drive by taking the time and effort to complete the case showcase their skills and abilities relevant to the job-role. With case-based recruiting, the recruiter has more control over the quality of candidates by evaluating top-talent in a large talent pool using AI automation. Lyreco DK found that case screening resulted in more qualified candidates with the right fit, which increased the company's chances of finding the right candidate and having the best candidate join their team and increase performance.
Cases increase diverse hiring by giving each candidate a fair starting point - the case.
By having a skill assessment case, or a job-specific case, each candidate can be assigned a story of something they have been through that would make a good fit for a role and address real work-life situations. Most of these circumstances will involve some kind of skill assessment for example Customer Care may assess skills such as communication, negotiation and empathy. This type of skill based assessment gives candidates an opportunity to be evaluated on their real skill and experience, and not based on education or background.
These are just some of the benefits of using cases in hiring processes and there are many more!
