Recruiting continues to be Candidate-driven in 2016 and hiring “A Players” continues to be a significant challenge. The following are some tips on the use of technology that will improve your ability to recruit and hire top talent.
The use of mobile devices is accelerating and this channel is becoming an important way to reach Candidates and demonstrate that your company is innovative and forward thinking. According to Glassdoor, 90% of all Candidates use their smart phones to search for jobs and CareerBuilder estimates that 65% of these Candidates will not stay on a site that isn’t optimized for mobile, i.e. adjusts to the screen sizes of multiple mobile devices. Employers should “mobilize” as many recruiting functions as possible, i.e. employment applications, Candidate engagement tools, social media, secure messaging, websites, etc. In addition, all mobile applications should be mobile-optimized.
The number of data security attacks from disgruntled or terminated employees and external hackers is growing and Candidates are increasingly concerned about this exposure. Companies that invest in protecting their human resource data are demonstrating to Candidates that they are concerned about the security of Candidate data.
Data mining and data analysis of recruiting data can significantly improve your recruiting by providing direction for use of recruiting dollars and time. Improvements include determining recruiter productivity, developing appropriate recruiting strategies, ensuring that recruiting searches access appropriate sources, etc.
Video interviews are becoming an important technology for reducing recruiting costs and saving Hiring Manager time. The latter is especially important, because Hiring Managers frequently feel that their operational responsibilities do not allow them sufficient time for recruiting. Video is also playing a role in telecommuting.
The trend to telecommuting is increasing through the use of phone, email and video. GlobalWorkplaceAnalytics.com has determined that 3.7 million employees (2.8% of the non self-employed workforce) now work from home at least half the time, which is an increase of 103% since 2005. Most employees prefer working at home, so offering this benefit can have a significant positive impact on recruiting and can actually reduce employer costs. Some employers are resisting this trend because of concerns with productivity and control. However, simple reporting systems can eliminate these concerns.
