How technology helps in recruiting

The use of technology has spurred a number of questions including 'Are companies hiring the right people in a right way? Are they using the right tools to hire? Are candidates aligned with company’s culture? How can companies keep employees engaged for a longer period of time? And how can the effectiveness of processes be improved to save cost?'

Here are a few tips to ensure that you have a seamless experience in hiring:

* Go Social
Today, your candidates are on social media, that is the marketplace for sourcing. There is an untapped source of data on social media. And job seekers are actively finding their jobs through the social networking sites. The need is to reach beyond the job-boards and put less-manual sourcing strain on your recruiters.  

* Referrals 
Invest in referral program as costs will come down, and the quality of the hire would increase. It will also lead to better camaraderie and enhanced alignment of people with the organizational culture. Leverage your employee network to bring in suitable candidates into the organization. 

* Proper branding
Going social as part of your overarching strategy can bring manifold benefits to your organisation. 

Candidates have their own personal objectives and goals and very often chose companies whose values are also aligned with their own. 

Candidates invariably visit the career site, and they see if their expectations and career objectives are aligned with what the company has to offer. So focus on the right branding on your career page so that it entices people to join your organisation. 

Make your page attractive and add videos which talk about careers and success as this is the kind of information sought by candidates.   

* Right candidate experience
Make application process easy: Application processes that are complicated and repetitive can repulse candidates. There are plenty of tools available through which one can simplify the application process and make it easy and accessible.

Mobile-optimised process: Mobile phones are most commonly used for applications.  It is therefore imperative that the application process through mobile is extremely intuitive and user-friendly.

Seamless process: The entire process of candidate shortlisting and the various steps in recruitment leading to the offer should provide a good candidate experience. Candidates are brand ambassadors of your organisation, and they can make or mar your brand image. 

* Nurture relationships:
Once a candidate is hired, there are several metrics you can use to measure the efficiency of the process and also check the quality of the hires like manager’s account of employees’ performance, productivity and their compatibility with culture. Furthermore, there are tools and analytics available which can configure pre-decided parameters to differentiate between good, average and bad quality hire.
