In this fiercely competitive market, it’s becoming difficult for companies to find the right talent. One must leverage technology in recruiting process to overcome these challenges. You can use HR software as compared to the traditional bricks and mortar recruiting process. Also, consider AI, which can provide desirable outcomes in short intervals.

With the increase of unemployment rates, the intensity of companies looking for suitable resources has also increased. Thus, many companies rely on AI technology and HR software to make their work easier. Let’s look at 4 technologies that have given a new direction to the recruitment process.

Go Social

Today the world is shifting towards digitization. Paper advertisement has become obsolete and is unable to reach potential candidates. Also, even job portals and career sites are not that effective in giving favorable results to companies as per their investment. Today, it is better to hunt for the resource on social media where millions of users thrive. As per market data, 78% of job applicants look for a job online, and among them, social media is the most popular.

Employers should employ their HR team to search for resources on social media. Through such platformsh they can get the ideal proficient candidates. Keep a watch on activities of their social media, collect their information and send them job notifications. A structured approach will surely fulfill your search for talented professionals.

Employ software technology

Nowadays, it is important to cater to excellent candidate experience during hiring, as it has become a pivotal aspect of the hiring process. Professionals treated well during the hiring process are more likely to join the company. Also, through social media, it has become easy for professionals to let others know about your positive recruiting process, which will build your brand reputation among other candidates.

Today, employers believe in using HR software solutions- like AI recruiting, which help them in efficient team acquisition and screening procedures. These two are the main recruiting factors.

Also, data analytics tools help in active hiring strategy. It will allow you to keep track of recruiting decisions. In addition, these tools will help in recruitment metrics, like cost per hire, retention rate, hiring time, and other aspects. Without such metrics, it is challenging for companies to get desired outcomes. Also, they won’t be able to get the right candidate experience.

Excellent use of professionals

An excellent hiring process makes efficient use of professionals. If a particular resource is not suitable for the current job post, then it can be utilized for different job positions instead of dismissing them. Don’t reject them; you must assess their skills first, otherwise you will miss out on a skilled prospect.

To avoid such a situation, you must know the interest of all resources present in the talent pool. Build relations with them, since in future you may require them when other relevant positions are vacant. Such a strategy will give you a competitive advantage over others.

Through AI, you can maintain an excellent talent pool. These tools can solve the need of both recruiters and candidates. For instance, ‘Stella.ai’ is an AI platform to reroute resources.

AI recruiting

Today, an effective hiring strategy containing AI or artificial intelligence is a must. The most crucial feature of AI in recruitment is it sorts out LinkedIn profiles instead of resumes to shortlist the candidates. Such a feature ensures that you get more skilled candidates. Next, AI picks the top candidates from the talent pool. It further allows candidates to be involved in online assessment exams to test their intelligence and create a list of skilled professionals.

The implementation of artificial intelligence in the hiring process not only takes less time but also gives desired results. AI contacts job seekers with automated messages and schedules the interviews through chatbots.

Conclusion

Companies always look for the right candidates; hence they must adopt a robust hiring strategy. Strategies must change as per evolving technologies to stay relevant and continuously deliver results. AI and HR software both should be there in hiring strategies to get skilled professionals in their hiring process.

So, if till now you haven’t leveraged technology in your company for hiring professionals, it’s the time to do so to get a talent pool full of appropriate skills required by your company.
