The race to compete for qualified talent isn’t dying down any time soon, and you need to stay a step ahead of the competition to move your business forward. One of your biggest challenges is that you already have a full plate, so how can you add time back to your day to focus on the things that really matter? To gain a competitive advantage in the talent acquisition marketplace today, you need a single solution that removes common headaches from your daily life. Your system should also offer seamless integration into your current tools, so you can get the job done without skipping a beat.
Here are five common recruitment problems that Talentstream Recruit, a pre-hire platform, can solve.
1. Your recruitment software and sourcing solutions are disconnected, and it is frustrating to manage all of them.
Using a different tool for every step in the recruiting process adds time and complexity to your day. Keeping up with long, drawn-out processes leaves you feeling overwhelmed.
Talentstream Recruit is a holistic solution to make recruiting simple again with just one platform to handle all of your recruitment needs. Talentstream Recruit includes a candidate-optimized career site, automatic candidate re-engagement engine, resume profile search, job distribution, workforce analytics and real-time reporting — all in one configurable workflow. By eliminating logins to many different systems, your team will save time and streamline their workflow.
2. You spend too much time posting jobs, and very little time sourcing strategically.
HR and talent acquisition are no longer seen as a primarily administrative functions. You are being asked to place more candidates in a shorter time frame, but this requires that more time is spent on tedious tasks to pull in a higher volume of resumes (like job postings and resume database searches). These tasks eat up valuable time from your day and lead to stress, low performance and turnover.
Talentstream Recruit combines leading job distribution and resume database searching tools right within your requisition and applicant management software. Save time by sending a job posting to multiple job boards and sourcing candidates from your private database within the same tool you use to manage the hiring process.
3. You tend to overlook candidate information that you have already acquired.
Your organization sources a lot of candidates every year to continue filling positions. Between internal candidates, external resume databases, a talent network and past applicants, it can be difficult to ensure that every relevant candidate is considered — especially those that have been collected in the past. Logging in and out of disparate tools takes time and leads to duplicating efforts to find applicants.
Talentstream Recruit combines all of your talent pools into a single, searchable database and will return search results based on relevant candidates to fit the needs of your open position. When you access past applicants, talent network members and resume database members early on in your workflow, you avoid paying for the same job seeker twice through job postings. It’s like checking your pantry before deciding you need to go grocery shopping.
4. You can’t make recruitment strategy decisions without real-time data.
Talent acquisition professionals work hard to fill every position. You post open positions to every available job board, search every resume database and check social media. These steps are often taken as a result of habit, training or perceived success of the tools in the past. Sometimes, you just can’t find a qualified candidate, but ask yourself: Did you make tactical recruitment decisions based on proven results or gut feelings?
Want to know how easy or difficult it will be to find candidates for your position based on the number of active job seekers in comparison to the number of job postings in a given market? You can get insight into competition for talent in the area, other locations with a higher concentration of job seekers, suggested job titles to enhance your search, average compensation for a given position and more. Stay five steps ahead of the competition by creating a recruitment strategy based on market data.
5. Candidates have no way to stay engaged and easily interact with your company when new positions are available.
Building a pipeline of talent for future positions is essential, but most recruiters don’t have enough time in their day to keep candidates engaged. As a result, you are forced to post every open position on job boards to attract new job seekers — causing recruitment budget and time-to-fill numbers to suffer. You’ve already paid good money to build a pipeline of candidates. Without an easy way to keep them informed, you will probably never hear from them again.
Talentstream Recruit includes a candidate-optimized career site and built-in talent network to acquire and engage your pipeline. Whether a job seeker elects to apply to a position or simply join your talent network, they are instantly subscribed to receive email alerts of new opportunities at your company. Using CareerBuilder’s proven recommendation engine, developed from over 20 years as a leading job board, candidates receive relevant opportunities to keep them interested in your organization — leading to an email click-thru rate that is five times the industry average. Your entire talent network is also searchable within Talentstream Recruit’s applicant database. Even if a candidate didn’t apply to a job, you can easily engage the right job seekers with new opportunities.
