What's a recruitment software?
Its tough to find new recruits these days! Finding the right person for a role at your company can be a long and tedious process. Software specifically geared at recruitment like an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) can help a lot, but what exactly is it? This article delves into what an ATS is and how recruitment can become much more effective when using one.
What’s recruitment software or ATS?
An ATS is typically an online platform that helps businesses automate and optimize their recruitment process by handling many steps in the process: from setting up a job offer and diffusing the offer over various job boards automatically to conducting skill tests and even video interviews. Some advanced tools (like Beehire) even pre-screen and match profiles, which helps a lot if you’re receiving many applicants for a job. Together the features of an ATS aim to help recruiters save time and improve the efficiency of the recruitment process.
Besides being able to manage many job offers and candidates at once, being able to spread a job offer across many platforms is also a key feature of an ATS. We try to make sure our users can access the vast majority of job boards when using Beehire, and have included over 2000 job boards as part of our service. Some other providers charge an additional fee to distribute to many job boards. ATS platforms also often include an option to purchase premium positions at job boards at lower prices than buying them directly from the job board.
It is also important to note that an ATS can help businesses comply with employment equality laws. The algorithms used in these platforms can be designed to eliminate unconscious bias in the recruitment process.
Integrating an ATS into your workflow
One of the major advantages of an ATS platform is that it helps businesses improve how they recruit. Features such as letting candidates fill in online applications, upload relevant documents, and compete for screening tasks help employers more easily track the candidate funnel. ATS platforms often also automate repetitive tasks such as sending follow-up emails to candidates and can help sift through hundreds of candidates.
While an off-the-shelf solution will often work for many small and starting businesses, larger companies tend to have specific workflows or require integrations in other processes of the company (like an ERP or payroll software). To do this an ATS platform typically comes in an off-the-shelf format with options to customize the platform further to meet specific business needs. Some platforms also offer custom development to fit very specific needs, though this is generally quite rare. Beehire offers both the off-the-shelf convenience to be able to start out right away, as well as deep integrations into various enterprise software suites.
The importance of standing out
Often overlooked is that an ATS can greatly help extend employer branding assets to the recruitment process. A good platform will give you the possibility to easily add and modify branding assets to all parts of the recruitment process: emails, landing pages, forms, and even the way video interviews are presented. Good branding helps a lot when onboarding new recruits!
