The current development framework for recruiting talent is closely linked to digitalization and remote working. This must be done in a scenario transformed by the coronavirus pandemic, which has influenced public policies and business dynamics linked to employment. The Harvard Kennedy School states that in the US, state and local administrations have already lost 1.5 million jobs. The same jobs that are at risk in the short term. 

Having an intelligent Applicant Tracking System or ATS allows talent managers in organizations to face the main challenges of the digital era. According to the consulting firm Deloitte, these challenges include, among others: 

  • Effective team integration 
  • Facilitating and creating engagement dynamics 
  • Having the capacity for building dynamics in place 
  • Adoption of emerging technologies 

Positive aspects of using an ATS for recruiting talent 

For Human Resources Directors and Recruitment Managers, the process of recruiting and integrating new talent is crucial. In order to have the best resources available at all times. And also to achieve a balanced development of internal corporate dynamics and the achievement of strategic objectives. How can an ATS help in human resources management? 

Improves the candidate’s experience: reducing the frictions and mismatches involved in adopting to a new corporate culture and joining a new work team. 

Saves time for the HR department: optimizing your processes and ensuring a better utilization of your resources, with shorter implementation times. 

Locates and attracts the right talent: thanks to the search and semantic analysis of curriculums provided by ATS. 

Improves employer branding: ensuring that your organization is portrayed as an attractive destination for developing talent and skills. 

Improves the ROI of recruitment: ensuring that every cent invested in this process is recouped and even generates profits. 

Easier onboarding process when recruiting talent

The process of recruiting talent does not end with the selection of the most appropriate candidate. Without a quick assimilation into the corporate culture and a non-disruptive inclusion in its dynamics and objectives, all the time “gained” with the use of the ATS can be “lost” in the onboarding process. An onboarding application is a crucial support in human resources management. 

Thanks to Talentia HCM and its specific component for onboarding, it is possible to reduce the possible disruptions and mismatches generally associated with the arrival of a new element to the organization. This is important when many onboarding processes are undertaken simultaneously with teleworking dynamics. Through a smart solution to monitor the talent assimilation experience, it is possible to: 

  • Perform training on the internal dynamics of the company. 
  • Facilitate adoption of the corporate culture. 
  • Provide a better understanding of the characteristics of the position and the duties and responsibilities involved. 
  • Better and clearer placement of assimilated talent in the existing organizational chart. 

Effective recruitment is imperative, as well as fast and efficient recruitment and hiring processes. In a context such as the digital one, the difference is measured in seconds, not days. Having the appropriate technological support will facilitate your work force and help you to achieve your objectives in a more optimized way.
