Furthermore, the final multi-media report, which includes the filmed extract, allows various assessors to evaluate the executives on the basis of the same objective information, as well as allowing a choice of time and place for doing so, by the very nature of the digital support. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, it is the only system which gives access to the best candidates, independently of the country they are located in, in the same timeframe as for a local search. This is possible thanks both to our knowledge of local markets and to the multimedia system, which ensure that all short-listed candidates compete on equal terms, whatever their country of origin. </li></ul>
