Here it comes! 2016 has arrived and run full of new resolutions for improvement within the HR industry. Technology is on its rise within the sector and pre-screening software is taking the lead towards enhancement in quality hire and recruitment process acceleration.
Candidate screening technology is shaping the way HR departments acquire new talent. It clearly offers new alternatives to traditional methods of recruitment and helps reducing the cost incurred in the hiring process.
Nevertheless, good technology should be combined with right actions, otherwise it will simply not work and produce mismatch in hiring. Here are a few tips to take into account in order to implement technology in the most effective way.
- Manage your applications through online recruitment. The concept lies fundamentally in dealing with job vacancies and potential candidates through different web-based platforms such as job boards, corporate sites and social media. Adopting such innovative procedure in recruiting enables companies to adapt to where the vast majority of job seekers nowadays are, reach a greater number of talented candidates, spread geographical scope, and facilitate closer interaction with candidates.
- Define the appropriate job requirements for your open position. Screening software will not be effective if the right specifications to perform a job are not correctly determined. Before posting a job vacancy, a recruiter should always define clearly what are the knowledge, skills and attitude required to carry out the tasks and duties needed for that job. A realistic description of the job leads to a more effective filter capable of screening out truly qualified applicants and improve the quality of your hiring decision.
- Use video interviews and personality assessments to accelerate and improve the recruitment process. Implementing both tools from the moment the candidate applies online ensures that no individual is left behind in the process of selection, and therefore it increases the chances of hiring the right person while decreasing inefficient time screening and interviewing candidates.
