There is always more you can do to improve recruitment in your organization. From gathering buy in from multiple business functions and leaders to educating recruiters, there are some steps that can be taken for this purpose. However, apart from manual efforts, technology also plays a huge role in recruitment, and the entire exercise will become better for it.
The recruitment module of HR software comes with an applicant tracking system (ATS), which becomes the centralized platform for all things recruitment. From sourcing candidates to scheduling interviews to communicating with prospects and hires, the ATS helps in many ways. It also introduces automation into the process – by tracking schedules, it understands when is the best time for an interview and schedules it accordingly.
Then comes communication – both internal and external. Though the HR professional is the one managing the entire process, he or she is hiring the candidate for individual business units, and therefore, stakeholders from these business units will be involved in recruitment. Also, the candidates – they will be yearning for some kind of communication from the organization, positive or negative. If they are not hired, they would like to know it immediately so that they can continue their efforts.
Generally, in the bustle of daily activities, this communication somehow gets missed, and gaps are created. This can be avoided by using the software, which not only ensures prompt communication but also automates it.
Online HR software helps with all aspects of recruitment. This support even extends to on-boarding the new hires. Also, using the complementary analytics, you can have a much better picture of your hiring efforts, and therefore do what’s needed to be done to improve it.
