We’re officially living in a digital world. While the pandemic hasn’t subsided yet, 87% of employers surveyed by SHRM said that they will continue, or begin to, embrace a flexible hybrid work model. With that comes a new way of interviewing and recruiting top talent. What does that mean exactly? It means embracing digitization and deploying technology that allows you to connect and build relationships with candidates regardless of physical location. Here are a few tools we think are critical to navigating the intricacies of the remote work world:
Video Conferencing Platforms
We are now beyond the standard phone screenings of days past. However, when interviewing candidates who aren’t coming to the office in person, you don’t want to miss the non-verbal communication that is key to determining fit and capability. After the pandemic, it’s essential to embrace all the video conferencing platforms available to you. In fact, since 2020, there has been a 535% increase in daily video conferencing traffic as over three-quarters of employees use conferencing at work. From Google Meet to Zoom to WebEx, each of these platforms provide unique capabilities to allow you to connect “face-to-face” with your top candidates.
Applicant Tracking System
If you have yet to adopt an applicant tracking system (ATS), it’s time. Over 95% of Fortune 500 companies use one to streamline their hiring process to ensure simplified SOPs for their team and give candidates a positive interview experience. These talent acquisition and recruiting software allows recruiters and human resources teams to weed through applications through automation, track hiring tasks and pipelines, nurture top talent with personalized campaigns, use analytics to enhance hiring practices, and so much more.
Automated Interview Scheduling Software
Finally, you need automated interview scheduling software. Once you have your ATS in place, this is the next step to a fully streamlined hiring process. That’s where Rooster comes in!
