Pushing the organization into the future – fast and easy!
Hiring technologies has been around since the 1980’s but it is only now that it has matured to a point that even large organizations are using it to streamline their recruitment processes. Some companies are actually integrating bigger HR technologies like talent management software to its overall operation making sure that human capitalization is done right every step of the way. From recruitment, performance management, training and development, even compensation management – these are all managed by a single system that links each function to a single database that HR leaders can access anytime and anywhere. The good news is all information in HRMS (covers for applicant hiring software too) are in real-time enabling organizations to act fast, plan ahead of time, even anticipate HR issues before they happen. This has made human resources management a simpler department to steer towards organizational goals.
The automation factor
Conventional hiring systems are often done manually over a physical plane that can be very difficult to manage as the size of the organization increases. The ability to control processes diminishes as the number of applicants increase, and as these applicants progress deeper into the hiring process. New hiring technologies can automate a lot of the processes in hiring. This includes job posting, receiving and filing applications, mining resume data, sourcing people online (and through the HRIS for internal hiring), scheduling interviews, interviewing applicants, facilitating online exams, assessing test scores, posting results of various assessments, and providing an easy to read information dashboard for hiring managers. All these can be done without human intervention. Hiring managers will just be there to trouble shoot problems in the hiring process, and pass on a short list of qualified candidates for a specific job. Quality recruitment is assured with costs brought down dramatically too!
How about reliability?
Automated processes are highly reliable because the tasks are performed through computers with refined and accurate algorithms that do not tire doing the same task over and over again. Human error is removed from the equation because stress, biases, and human limitations are no longer applicable to the hiring process. Hiring technologies can also be linked to other HR systems that can make transitions from recruitment to employment seamless. This adds to the reliability rating of hiring systems. It is important to mention the ability of these systems to shape itself to the ideals of the organizations. It gives hiring managers complete control all the time.
Talent acquisition system
Today talent acquisition systems are paving the way for a host of hiring technologies. Applicant tracking system, online reference check systems, automated interviewing platforms, and other integrated hiring technologies are making recruitment easier, faster, and more reliable. Since each stage of the hiring process is covered hiring managers can do more and be more in the organization than minding massively manned hiring department and minding small, repetitive hiring tasks.
