Involving a lot of coordination among employees and candidates, recruitment is not the easiest of tasks for the HR professional to handle. Many organizations, small and medium especially, use ad hoc practices and place the burden of recruitment on their employees instead of doing so on a system that can help them manage the entire process in a much more organized and efficient manner.
Recruiting software helps organizations with implementing this system. Let’s see how.
Firstly, you can use the software to prepare and publish your vacancies and job descriptions through different channels. When you receive applications from candidates, you can configure the software in such a way that these applications are automatically sorted and the right applications go to the right place.
Using the software, you can also construct and implement a recruitment funnel and assign roles and responsibilities to those involved in the process. If calendars are integrated with the software, it will check for a date that is suitable to both the interviewer and the candidate and set up an interview.
The software will handle the communication aspect and ensure that every stakeholder in the process is kept informed at all times. It sends automated notifications to interviewers, candidates, and HR professionals about any interviews or interactions that have been scheduled.
With the applicant tracking system (ATS), HR professionals can keep track of all the applicants from a centralized source. Any update to the status of a candidate can be made easily and it will immediately reflect in all the appropriate places.
What recruiting software effectively does is to bring all the disparate channels that organizations use to manage their recruitment onto a single platform and provides them with a one-stop shop. Using this software will be advantageous in more than one way.
