The latest news and advice from our recruitment experts.
The warning went out last month that small businesses in New Zealand risk being left behind if they don’t adopt the latest digital technology. The New Zealand Herald ran a story quoting Tenby Powell – director of Hunter Powell Investment Partners – saying there was a “real problem” in small to medium enterprises (SMEs) recognising digital as a vital tool to help their marketing and customer relationships.
He added that although Kiwis generally took to new tech on a personal level – they weren’t as fast when it came to business.
“This changing market is no different to the revolution that saw people get off the horse and cart and get into a car driven by an internal combustion engine. It is exactly the same,” he told the Herald.
SMEs account for around 97% of all New Zealand businesses and employ around 580,000 people, generating nearly a third of the country’s GDP – it stands to reason that adopting technology which can save time, stress and money is not only beneficial to the growth of small businesses, but also to the economic health of the country.
And that’s why applicant tracking systems are such an important part of a small business’s set-up. It means that right from your initial contact with potential staff members, you can have a smoothly running, professional appearance perfectly customised to your company’s requirements with a strong emphasis on usability and return on investment.
The old-fashioned image of a new business owner struggling to keep on top of spreadsheets and disorganised databases is precisely the sort of “problem” that the Herald story was talking about – by using QJumpers recruitment software, any business, regardless of size, is able to run a smooth system to find and onboard new staff as well as keep track of potential applicants if you need to go back out to the marketplace.
