Hiring the Right People in the Right Jobs
Thursday, February 7, 2013
How can online recruiting software boost HR productivity? While developers claim that using a properly set-up HR activity workspace is highly efficient, we claim that the manager can find the right person quicker, and achieve higher KPI, when using hiring software rather than when managing a recruitment process manually. Here I explain why exactly it’s possible.

Our solution enhances HR productivity performance making it possible to:
- Simplify hiring from start to finish
- Fill the (job) opening in less time
- Better inform managers and make faster business decisions
- Get approvals quicker
- Match the right people with the right position
- Track candidates through every hiring stage
- Have a holistic view on the hiring process with online access
- Work the next big opportunity now rather than later
When looking to fill an opening or make an organizational change, HR managers are still likely to initiate and manage the process manually. This is fine when you need to hire 2-5 people. When you need to find the candidates for a dozen of openings or more, it would be the right strategy to have two people instead of one HR manager: one who collects and manages information, and one who chooses the right candidate. Doing so makes the hiring process more costly. Not doing so leads to missed deadlines.
That’s the right time to consider using a web-based job-hunting tool when you feel that if you had an assistant who could help you out with candidate / applicant tracking it wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.
Any contemporary HR solution offers the minimum of an online workspace to keep data on each candidate in a single place, organize the HR manager working environment, combined with process tracking capabilities. It’s better when you have email alerts, discussion threads and a mobile version of the solution. This way, you can stay on top of your staffing process 24/7 and never let the right candidate slip through the net. All this makes the hiring / recruiting process both more efficient and less time consuming.
“It’s better when you have email alerts, discussion threads and a mobile version of the solution.”
When the organization needs a new employee, the manager hits the «Create Recruitment Request» button and provides the requirements for the candidate. The HR manager gets an email alert for the task. That is how a streamlined recruitment process begins. Both the HR manager and the requester track the recruitment process online, set up a call, a test, an interview and collaborate on each step. Additionally, the organization can choose to outsource the recruitment process to a very good Virtual Assistant company for optimal efficiency.
The software stores resumés, portfolios and other files associated with the candidate, and enable you to get a quick view of the current papers and approvals. That’s why the HR manager doesn’t have to switch between solutions: discussions, attachments, task manager, real-time notifications, candidates list, statuses, deadlines and requirements are all accessible online in the recruitment solution. Powerful search helps you find the recruitment process / candidate details along with the attachment in just a few clicks. This means a holistic view and almost an ideal workspace both for HR recruitment activity and for collaboration with the new hire requester.
“Hire the right employee when there are many applicants. Meet requirements. Save time.”
Hire the right employee when there are many applicants. Meet requirements. Save time. Hiring is not a process which needs to be costly, so it’s better to save time and money in these areas. Comindware HR Solution has the hiring and recruitment process features to help you take on this challenge successfully.
