Hiring the perfect candidate plays an important role in a company’s success. Yet, the recruiting process is time-consuming and requires a lot of resources. Luckily, there’s a more efficient way to hire? With an online applicant tracking system, companies find it easier to hire the best candidates for open positions.
Tracking systems save time at each stage of the interview-to-hire process. From the get-go, these systems flag unqualified candidates and push through candidates to the next stage that meets minimum requirements. Custom workflows also make it easier to schedule interviews with fewer phone calls.
Using a tracking system makes it easier to keep everything in one place. Hiring managers have all the information needed to schedule interviews, filter candidates by hiring stage, and more. Tracking systems are the ultimate HR organizational tool.
Many companies put off posting jobs because they don’t want to have to rewrite copy or publish to multiple platforms. The best tracking systems store job posts, make it easy to post them across platforms and provide key insights on which platforms send the most qualified applicants.
Once a company decides to hire a candidate, the onboarding process begins. An efficient online applicant tracking system does double-duty, streamlining the onboarding procedure. These systems let companies send an offer letter, set up payroll, and introduce the new hire to the company’s systems so the new team member can get to work quicker.
