Even in periods of high unemployment, there are open jobs. Jobs that companies simply can't fill. It's not that candidates are unqualified for the positions necessarily, there are just too many of them for each opening. Recruiters and hiring managers are busy trying to fill these positions with candidates that not only have the necessary skills, but also the personalities to fit the company culture.
If it's a lack of time that ails you, then robust Applicant Tracking Software is the remedy. After all, ATS (Applicant Tracking System) can save 40% of the company's valuable time during the recruitment and hiring process. It stands to reason then, that their recruiting medicine cabinets are missing some key essentials. These recruiting basics can give you more time by automatic the hiring process, cutting the unwanted Spam, and more time means easier filtering of applicants.
Your hiring process takes way too long…
A lengthy hiring process is not only frustrating for the recruiters and hiring managers who try to fill the position, but it's also frustrating for the candidates who apply. Candidates aren't afraid to share their poor experiences with others; most of the time, they will immortalize them on social media. Subsequently, there is a direct correlation between the length of the hiring process and the company's employer brand.
"46% of candidates rate their experience as poor or very poor, and 64% share their experience with a company via social media. People are sharing their candidate experience and it does have a significant impact on the employer brand."
The ATS (Applicant Tracking System) you already have doesn't quite do the job…
It's true, ATS filters through resumes that don't match keywords in the job description. Unfortunately, that means the software will also miss potentially well-qualified candidates. It is estimated that human eyes never see 75% of resumes. If the ATS you're using isn't quite what you had hoped for, there's a very good chance you're missing candidates who would have otherwise been perfect for the position. Most corporate jobs receive 250 resumes per opening on average, the question you should be asking is which applicants are you missing and why?
You're wasting time. Your ATS is wasting your time. Even if you already have an ATS, there's a good possibility it's not doing its job. To find your ideal candidate to fill the job, you need a good ATS. The ATS should decrease time-to-hire, and ease the hiring process for both you and your candidates. The better the ATS fits your company, the happier your candidates will be. The happier your candidates are, the better your employer brand.
It is time.
It is time to switch to a Robust hiring model that not only helps you automate your recruitment process but also helps you find the right candidate easier and faster – ATS being just a part of it.
