The latest news and advice from our recruitment experts.
Within our QJumpers recruitment management software system, we’ve cleverly crafted a functionality called Talent Pool. Talent Pool has been designed so when you see potential talent heading your way for a role within the business, you can now capture these people in your talent pool database for imminent future hires.
We call it future proof recruitment planning.
For many HR Administrators and HR Managers who process sometimes hundreds of job applicants each week, this talent pool functionality will save on an awful lot of processing time. No more shuffling paper into a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ pile, with one click your ‘yes’s’ are safely tucked away for future use.
We’ve installed an “Invite” button so when it’s time to contact your potential candidates to advise them of a vacancy, you have the ability to write a personal email asking if they’re interested and would they like to apply.
The benefit of the invite button is being able to offer your potential talent that true one-on-one experience for your pending vacancy that all candidates will hear about on various domains. It ensures that the candidate has already got a positive feel about your workplace, your culture and how you operate.
That’s an attractive factor for top talent to take into consideration when they are looking for those added flourishes within your organisation. In addition if you can mark candidates as "hot prospects", for easy reference for another vacancy you may have in the future.
It’s important that when you sell yourself on these attributes that you can back it up. For example if you say “we use the latest technology and we like to go the extra mile”, then the Talent Pool tool can be one way in which you can utilise this.
If you’re an HR Manager or HR Director, it’s a powerful tool for your team to use, as it allows them to keep one step ahead in the talent pool game - Talent Pool is also great for efficiency and effectiveness. Staff love it and become far more productive when they can work smarter - and it always pays to keep on top of the tech savvy game.
Not only does this tool save on time, it also saves on advertising costs if you have the ability to turn around your next appointment fast enough. Before your talent pool is found by another company; play it smart, keep communicating and keep in touch, and your talent pool may stay loyal longer. If you create an inclusive relationship before you are able to hire your next star, this may benefit you and your business long term.
Using smart technology to deliver a better service, treating employees and people the way you would like to be treated to build stronger relationships, and evolving as a business to provide greater recruitment solutions and customer service, are all objectives that we deem imperative for any business at QJumpers. We know it’s wise to practice what you preach, and understand there a certain functions and capabilities that are required to keep on top of your game as a business.
