5 Ways Technology Has Impacted On Recruitment Process

Recruitment is one of the significant processes that take place in every business. It is a well-known fact that technology is going to enhance the quality of recruitment process and also take the burden off your shoulder.

Many solutions have been introduced by technology to accelerate the recruitment process. However, it has ruined the privacy to a greater extent.

1.    It helps you seek talent:

There are some technologies which are affordable when it comes to incorporate them in recruitment. It enables the business to recruit many valuable people. The technology works very fast in selecting people.

There is an application tracking system that can manage all the applications of candidates. This system also sorts the candidate in any desired order. The job openings resume, skill level and a lot of other things can easily be seen through application tracking system. Moreover, this application is also very effective if you want to import the resumes of candidates from one application to another.

2.    It Increases productivity:

The increased productivity of everything in the business increases the economic growth. The technology provides automation due to which the time required to complete all the tasks is reduced. The ability of a business to retrieve and compile the date gets enhanced through technology. Organising the candidates’ details with hands is very time-consuming. Not to mention, technology saves the business from this hassle.

3.    Online testing:

Technology has made it easier for the companies to test the skills and competency level of the individuals applying for a job. ESTA Application is another application of technology that makes it easier for the USA department to test the applicants’ documents. It is quite different from the visa system where online testing is not done. This visa system is very complex and also increases the time to select the individuals as it does not use much of the technology.

4.    The company becomes more strategic:

There should be a plan required to be used to manage all the tasks that a company needs to do a smoother recruitment process. The plan-making and management depend on technology. If you are using built into technology, you are going to have more strategic planning.

 Many metrics can be measured in the recruitment process. It also saves you from having to spend a lot of money and time in recruitment and selection process.

 The recruitment of embassies is also done through technology with different strategies. The recruitment in visa processing department is being streamlined through technology. This visa department works more efficiently through effective applications incorporated into their system. There are a lot of documents one has to provide in the visa process. This visa process gets too complex and annoying at times for the staff that requires the hiring of more competent staff. The technology plays an effective role in the recruitment of the staff in the embassy when metrics of hiring are known. 

5.    Video interviewing saves time:

Video interviewing is considered as the best substitute for a traditional interviewing process. It reduces the needs for telephonic or face to face interview. The HR does not have to arrange many meetings with candidates.

The pre-recorded questions can be sent to different stack holders that can conduct the interview even when the recruiter is not around. The candidate also gets the flexibility to attend the video interview as and when he finds the time to be appropriate.
