FREMONT, CA: Recruitment automation is a technology category that enable recruiters to automate parts of the recruitment process from the first point of contact with candidates to the extension of the letter of offer.Since recruitment is a people-focused industry, recruitment automation uses machine learning artificial and intelligence technologies to understand, evaluate and learn from the qualifications and characteristics of applicants.

In addition, data recruitment teams are empowered by automation tools. Tracking key recruitment metrics—such as time-to-fill and employee retention—allows employers to more effectively monitor their growth targets and optimise their recruitment process.In short, recruitment automation streamlines the process during each hiring round and provides important information to optimise the broader workforce strategy.

Let us look at the benefits of implementing recruitment automation:

Engaging Talent Faster

The demand for technical professionals has never been higher. As businesses across industries become increasingly digital, they need skilled workers to build, implement and maintain new tools.In addition, elite candidates are typically only on the market for 10 days before they accept an offer. Such a short recruitment cycle means that every phone call, email and conversation counts. Using recruitment automation will make it easier for you to engage talent and remain relevant among top candidates.

Identify the best candidates

Your candidate should be the driving force behind every hiring decision you make for a particular role. Recruitment automation tools can help you create and screen candidates more efficiently and effectively. This translates into a higher-quality pool of talent that ultimately leads to better, more qualified hires.

Save Valuable Time

Recruitment automation tools save recruiters time to focus their efforts less on burdensome tasks such as sourcing and candidate communication, and more on interview training, scorecards and recruitment training to optimise their efforts.

Eliminate Schedule Errors

Scheduling email interviews with candidates requires a lot of back and forth. So much so that errors and miscommunication are common, which can lead to a poor image of your employer brand. Automating email correspondence and interview scheduling minimises manual responsibilities, ultimately reduces errors and creates stronger candidate experience.
