As technology becomes increasingly prominent in all areas of work, more and more ways are found to automate processes and increase efficiency. An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is one of these ways. In today’s job market, companies that use an Applicant Tracking System are more likely to quickly attract, identify and hire top candidates.
Below are just a few of the ways an ATS could improve your recruitment process:
- Efficiency – An ATS helps improve efficiency by ensuring that your team can access your software from anywhere. It also reduces the need for spreadsheets and emails which can be error prone.
- Automation – The need for manual tasks such as publishing listings on job boards one at a time, sending follow up emails individually and calling applicants to book interview slots will also be reduced as the system can automate these types of tasks. This then leads to a faster recruitment cycle meaning vacancies can be filled quicker.
- Boosts Employer Brand – A streamlined and engaging recruitment process strengthens your employer branding. With an ATS, your company can attract and engage more candidates. Features like branded Career Pages, for example, will impress candidates and improve your talent pipeline leading to an improved quality of hire.
- Centrally Stored Data – An ATS can also allow recruiters to see all the information and metrics they need with a click of a button. This allows you to easily report on key metrics, such as time-to-hire and cost-per-hire. Storing all candidate data centrally can also help you remain compliant with GDPR by setting automated data deletion cycles.
