You and your business might be ready to tackle your 2018 hiring goals, but that doesn’t mean you have to work with 2017 equipment. Let’s face it: all the willpower, dedication, and effort in the world isn’t always enough to achieve your targets.
It’s time for you to consider an upgrade! When it comes to hiring the best talent, there are great options like HigherMe that not only allow you to maximize your time and effort but develop quality relationships with star talent as well. But how do you know where to start?
We’ve compiled a list of 3 essential upgrades for your business to consider. Check them out!
Applicant Tracking Systems
For those new to the term, an Applicant Tracking System (or ATS) is a one-stop central hub for your hiring. This program automatically collects all applicants in one easy-to-access place and lets you review their resumes easily and efficiently.
This is a huge step up if you’ve been tracking applications with spreadsheets – not only are these systems easier to keep organized, it’s also a huge time saver, which translates to more money and resources in the bank. HigherMe’s ATS is customized for employers looking to hire hourly employees, allowing you to view an applicant’s availability, transportation method, and even view Video Cover Letters within the system!
We’ve heard it a million times before: mobile technology is taking over. Almost everyone manages their daily life from their smartphones, and an increasing number of job seekers are conducting their job hunt on the go as well.
Time to get with the program! In addition to having a mobile-friendly ATS that you can access on the go, consider giving your applicants a more direct way to apply through their phones. A Text-to-Apply campaign is perfect for directing walk-in applicants to submit their resumes online – a big plus if you’re looking to move away from paper applications!
Automated Interview Scheduling
Automated Interview what? You heard us – this technology is a must-have for any employer who’s serious about stepping up their hiring game this year. It’s exactly what it sounds like: with a single click of a button, you can invite a candidate to an interview and allow them to choose from a pre-selected number of time slots.
These invitations are delivered through email and text-message, and minimize the amount of back and forth required on the employer’s end. Not only does this technology cut down on time you’ll spend on scheduling interviews, it also helps leave a fantastic impression on the applicant. After all, who doesn’t want to work for a tech-savvy employer?
