Time Is Money: Streamline your Hiring Process using Online Recruitment Software
Time and money – the two words that dominate the lexicon of today’s recruiters and hiring managers, and the two words that create one of the greatest challenges they face on a daily basis: How can we reach more of the right candidates without exceeding our recruitment spend? In other words, how can you streamline your recruitment processes?
At a time when the threat of ‘skills shortages’ is at the forefront of recruiter and hiring manager’s minds, it is imperative that those who are looking to hire, advertise their roles in the right places. Keeping up with trends in job seeker behaviour and finding out the latest job board or social media that candidates are “in to” is certainly doable, however, it is time consuming, and without a dedicated research team to do this, it’s guaranteed to become another task added to your endless to-do list.
Recruiters and hiring managers have accepted that the days of newspaper advertisements and paper CVs are long gone. Today, job seekers are more likely to be found searching and applying for roles via their mobile device, which places greater emphasis on the need to ensure they have a strong – and dominant – presence online.
With the economy strengthening all the time, the top candidates will be snapped up within days of job a posting being uploaded to job boards and social media channels. Meaning, that to attract the best talent, your roles need to be seen to be first, in the right place, and at the right time.
So how do you snap up the talent and keep track of those who have registered interest in your positions, without spending countless hours scheduling and monitoring when you could be engaging with those who matter to you? The answer: Technology.
Of course, we’re not just talking shiny new computers or buying the latest recruitment software which promises to do pretty much everything you could possibly dream of, except for making the tea! What talent managers really need is a solution that is flexible, adaptable to change and most important – tailored to their precise requirements. Easier said than done, maybe?
Research indicates that 90% of in-house and external recruiters feel that their existing ATS and recruitment advertising processes are either too complicated or too restrictive. And given the rise of mobile and social recruiting, many existing technologies are quickly becoming rendered as bordering on the obsolete. That’s where solutions providers such as idibu come into play.
