Automation reduces costs, increase efficiency and streamlines processes.
The candidate onboarding process begins with reviewing applications and searching the talent pool. Having located candidates, contact must be made by one or more of several channels e.g., email, SMS, phone – to inform them and schedule interviews. Candidates who pass this stage go the next stage, which may be presentation the client. The steps and stages in the workflow are a subject to automation. When a step is complete – the system triggers notifications and presents the next step or stage in the process. Aside from the actual interviews where you need to be present, everything else can be automated quickly and easily, saving you endless paperwork, the back-and-forth emailing to book a slot, and ultimately the low productivity as a result of an inefficient process.
Applying automation to candidate onboarding (and recruitment tasks as a whole) ensures a smooth transition from one task to the next, keeping relevant candidates in the loop and providing visibility into the status of the process to your clients.
Automating business processes creates a consistent, reliable standard, and reliably documented outcomes. Standardization increases trust in the process, builds the reputation of following reliable, professional, repeatable procedures. Automation is a key to operational excellence that meets and exceeds customer expectations by consistently delivering in step with promised standards.
