The Role of Technology in the Recruitment Process

Technology has influenced every aspect of business so why should recruitment be any different? Though traditional methods of hiring like references or word of mouth are not dead yet but technology has led to different new pathways altogether. Implementation of technology in HR in the form of a HRIS (Human Resource Information System) has made it easier and faster to collect, collate and communicate information with employees and speed up the hiring process.

Employer portals are now more complex than ever and filled with data that helps organizations match with their ideal candidates and vice versa. Adapting to this change has been tough and it is not perfect, but it has served many purposes and has helped the overall hiring process. Let’s look at the role technology has played in recruitment and employee search:

Time Saving

Automation across various steps of the hiring process helps save time which would otherwise have been taken up by manual activities undertaken by HR professionals. Some software available, with the help of AI, can filter out applicants, contact, schedule calls and interviews and provide updates to candidates during the process. Interviewing through video calls saves a lot of time too. Recruitment process outsourcing is recommended if you do not have the time to find the right candidates for your company.

Access to a Greater Pool of Candidates

Outsourcing employee search functions to a staffing agency that are equipped with the right technology can help you gain access to a greater pool or candidates to choose from. Experts like Nova Staffing can help you save time and money by taking on the responsibilities and also find you the right person for the right job.

Improved Efficiency and Quality

To err is human, not AI. With the help of available technology, you can reduce common errors made by humans thereby improving overall efficiency and quality of candidates selected for the hiring process. Improved efficiency leads to shorter hiring cycles, thereby improving the competitiveness of organizations when hiring the best talent who may otherwise accept another offer if selection procedure takes a longer time.

Identifying the Right Talent

Recruiters no longer have to sort through piles of resumes to find a suitable candidate. The process is now automated by available AI technology that can do the manual work of scanning through resumes and identifying the ones that come closest to fitting the requirements of the job. Thus, employer portals have access to higher quality of candidates.
