Commvault & Sonru: Better Recruitment Management

Commvault recently introduced Sonru Video Interviewing for Customer Support Roles. The organisation has been using Sonru across the Americas, EMEA and APAC and have experienced consistent key benefits of using Sonru across all three regions, including:

  • Elimination of phone screening
  • Time and cost savings – 53% overall cost reduction
  • Flexibility for all
  • Better candidate selection


“I could see that Customer Support was an area where recruitment was performing well but taking a lot of manpower to get there. I recommended video interviewing to our Executive as a way to reduce costs.  Also of importance was the candidate experience, video interviews allow us to showcase who we are and put forward our employer brand in a very positive way.”

– Antonia Jennings, Commvault Head of Talent Acquisition APAC

Some of the Highlights

  • Streamlined Process & Reduced Costs
  • Flexible Panel Interviews & Better Selection
  • Training for Recruitment Team
  • Better Quality Candidates
  • Candidate Feedback

Implementing Sonru has given the team the ability to replace three interviews. In the past, candidates would go through a general fit phone screen, supervisor’s call and technical screen. Each element can now be incorporated into one video interview.

Commvault’s ‘time to fill’ has been impacted considerably and they have seen a 53% reduction in cost overall.

Commvault’s recruitment team review the interviews first and share a shortlist with the hiring managers. Sonru video interviews are shared with an average of 5 stakeholders and the team use the Sonru five-star ranking feature. This has given the hiring managers more confidence in their decision and they can demonstrate to their leaders why the candidate is right for their team.

Commvault have also found the they are able to use the video interviews to train their recruitment team to know what to look for.
