>Insider Secrets To Running Your Applicant Tracking System To Its Optimum Level
The key role of a successful online recruitment system is cut down administration work so your business can save time, labour and money.
This is best accomplished through easy-to-use tools which allow you to communicate with candidates such as automated acknowledgement emails and bulk-notification of unsuccessful applicants.
But the mark of a great HR team or a well-organised SME is the ability to understand the full range of functions a system such as QJumpers is able to supply – then your business can move on from simply being time-efficient to streamlining its internal processes, understanding its recruitment strategy and planning how best to find and build the ideal workforce.
So here are the key insider secrets to using QJumpers to its full extent:
Knowing how long it takes to hire a candidate will allow you to set benchmarks against which you can monitor your own recruitment processes.
Monitoring advertising spend, seeing whether roles are being filled before they have to be readvertised or gauging how frequently a role needs to be readvertised is a good way to indicate whether areas of your business experience high turnover. This data allows you to look at how your business is structured, who you are recruiting and how existing staffing levels are performing.
Reporting on the quality of candidates can give a good indication of the best channels for recruitment advertising, how well your on-boarding processes are functioning and how well your position descriptions are written.
Just because something is automated, does not mean that it is working to its most efficient potential. Your QJumpers system layout and design allows you to see how individual jobs progress through your business via “job status” indicators. Being able to monitor where a task is in the workflow allows you to:
Especially in centralised recruitment processes where multiple departments or geographically remote parts of the business are involved in handling a job vacancy and any applicants, it is vital to be able to keep the system working in a timely manner.
QJumpers cuts back on the old-fashioned papertrail of managers hunting for signoffs and approvals or searching through a stack of notes and opinions on individual candidates, but the system works at its best when it is set up to limit input over the recruitment process to those who need it.
The system works at its most efficient level by allowing particular users online or mobile access with limited functionality so they do not have to perform unnecessary tasks and they can add notes about candidates or make key decisions at the correct stage of the recruitment process when they have the time and are best able to fulfil that task.
The QJumpers system is effectively a database of applicants that gives a business a priceless tool to monitor who you are attracting to specific roles and a timesaving source for potential future candidates.
QJumpers software can talk and cope with systems within organisations such as other payroll, training and management software – and this gives you a perfect opportunity to streamline your processes and practices.
For example, being able to automate on-boarding processes with payroll and training will both save time and energy on the part of your business, but should also cut the time it takes to get your new candidate working to their full potential.
