You want to find the best people for your open positions, but your recruitment process can be unwieldy and time-consuming; part of the problem might stem from the very same technological tools your company is using to improve hiring.
Not every recruitment software was built as an all-in-one solution. You might find your company needs to use several different tools in the recruiting process, costing you precious time and making hiring the best people more difficult.
You want your company’s recruitment process to run smoothly and quickly, which means you need to streamline.
First, however, let us take a look at the problem with recruitment software that does not offer the complete solutions your company needs to find and hire the best people. Then we’ll discuss how an all-in-one recruitment software such as Simplicant is changing the recruitment game and making hiring the best players easier.
The Problem With Standalone Functionality
When looking for recruitment software, you want one solution with the capabilities and scalability to cover all recruitment functions needed by today’s employers. Instead, you might find it difficult to find an applicant tracking system that offers a complete recruitment solution. So employers end up with a hodgepodge of different recruitment tools offering standalone functionality. You might have one tech tool to cover sourcing, another to cover applicant tracking, and yet another to cover analytics.
Obviously there are big problems inherent with using separate tools when your recruitment software needs to be a complete solution. For instance, social recruiting and employee referral program features might seem as different as can be, but they both lead to better hires. In fact, social media can make employee referrals easier and job postings more sharable.
Modernizing an older applicant tracking system is not the answer either, because these systems were not built with today’s recruiting needs in mind. Trying to modernize an older system is putting a bandaid on the problem without addressing the underlying issue. Companies need a system built from the ground up to cater specifically to today’s modern-day recruiting needs.
Bringing It All Together
Your company needs an applicant tracking system that offers a complete solution. Getting a variety of tools that cover only part of the recruitment process is going to end up costing your company time and money. While your company is juggling all the various recruiting tools at your disposal, someone else with a complete applicant tracking system just swooped in and snagged the talent you need.
You need recruitment software such as Simplicant, which combines all the necessary recruitment process functions into one simple-to-use package. You do not want to use a different system for applicant tracking and social recruiting, for instance. Simplicant was built as a complete applicant tracking system, so it could work as a one-stop-shop for the hiring needs of companies looking to find the best people.
You want a leaner, faster recruitment process that covers a broad range of recruitment functions for your organization. Simplicant can quickly adapt to new technologies and best practices, meaning your company will never end up behind the curve. Simplicant can integrate with a variety of web and enterprise solutions, so no matter what hiring issues arise, our next-gen recruitment software has you covered.
