March seems to be one of those months where a lot gets done, which is why implementations are in full-swing here at Pereless and users are adopting recruiting technology faster than ever before. There is no better time to introduce a new tool into your company than when we as humans are getting ready for a seasonal change and ramping up our own business operations.
Make the Most of Your ATS Investment with Proper Training
Implementing new technology can seem like a daunting task on top of all of our other responsibilities in our jobs. Putting in the time on the front end can save dividends in time and resources later. As a provider of web-based applicant tracking tools in a subscription based model, we realize that if users do not get properly trained on the system, they are sure to get frustrated and eventually leave. By offering a host of training documents and resources such as webinars, consultation, and video tutorials, users can take advantage of all the system functionality available to them.
There is a ton of built-in automation, tools and system modules available for users, but if you try to tackle everything at once, you are setting yourself up for failure. Get the basics down first: posting jobs and managing candidates. Everything else will come into play in its own time and you can start easing into things like job and offer approval, screening questions for candidates, integrations with other vendors (i.e. background checks and payroll). Then, you can dive into reports and start to refine and improve your process further. One step at a time.
See What Your Peers Are Doing
Ask your consultant what others in your industry are doing to maximize their recruiting efforts through the ATS. You have to remember, there are thousands of users on this type of platform and guaranteed no 2 systems are set-up alike. One of our clients who owns a large franchise food store created a rule so that a “yes” response to the screening question “Do you have prior foodservice experience?” automatically places that applicant into a Priority Applicant recruit flow. That same recruiter than set up an email alert so that any applicant placed into the Priority Applicantwould get an email saying they would be contacted within 24-hours for a phone screen. As a result, she saw a dramatic increase in pick-up times and improved time-to-fill metrics.
