How much time do you waste on manual, repetitive tasks?

Or let’s reword it for you. How many manual HR tasks do you wish to take off your to-do list – for good?

Repetition isn’t exactly welcomed in HR. Not only does it zap your energy, drain your creativity, and stifle your productivity – it leaves no room for high-level and urgent tasks.

Think about it this way, every time you order a pizza, use your smartphone, or adjust the lights in your home, you’re using an automated system that works for you.

Hiring platforms are no different. They have also taken the HR world by storm

A hiring platform can help you automate endless HR tasks that you can (and should) be automating. It smoothly helps hiring teams automate, manage and organize tedious tasks that have historically monopolized their time and headspace.

Ready to optimize your HR workflows with a hiring platform? Here are 5 tasks you can take off your to-do list starting today.

Posting jobs on job boards

Every recruiter has their go-to job boards and social media platforms to find and hire potential candidates. But the real question is…how long does this task usually take?

Let’s face it, choosing which job boards to post on and which platforms to advertise on is not easy. It’s probably even a tad bit frustrating. Like researching the ones with the best website traffic and popularity. Or making an educated guess on which websites attract the best talent. There are so many hours in the day, but this task can easily eat away half a working day.

So can a hiring platform automate this task?

In one word: yes!

Automating job posting requires some technical work. Something that a hiring platform can seamlessly take care off. This way you can save valuable time on job posting. Just write your job ad once – and automate the rest.

A hiring platform like EVA-REC integrates with a broad range of free and paid job boards – over 2000 of them. This makes cross-posting on different channels easy and hassle-free. Instead of logging in and out of each platform, you can alternatively attract top talent from all around the work – with a single click. You can also choose to post on great channels, niche websites, and social media. Such as Monster, Glassdoor, Indeed, LinkedIn, Facebook – and thousands more. Say goodbye to jumping between tabs just to post a single job ad. Instead, you can use our hiring platform to centralize the entire process in one place!

Resume matching and shortlisting

Thanks to technology, candidates are used to exceptional user-experiences in almost every aspect of their lives. In one way or another, the hiring process is no different and recruiters must maintain the same standard. Once they lay their eyes on a job and apply for it – recruiters must move fast.

All too often, recruiters find handling thousands of resumes quite overwhelming. Who can blame them when they’ve got hundreds of resumes piling up on their desks, or sinking into their inbox?
And more importantly – how do recruiters rapidly identify star candidates and perfectly match them to the right vacancy?

A hiring platform like EVA-REC is powered by accurate AI-matching technology. Where recruiters can upload a mass number of resumes and it will seamlessly parse the information for them in no time. All they have to do is simply drag and drop these resumes in the system, and the hiring platform will automatically create a profile for each candidate. Recruiters can even search for resumes by using specific keywords, and in one click, match these resumes to pre-existing job posts or job description that they have.

Email follow ups with candidates

On a regular basis, hiring teams tend to exchange a large number of emails between candidates and to their staff. And you can consider this count as double for those who work remotely.

So let’s be real here, with the enormous amount of emails flowing into their inboxes, it’s quite challenging (if not impossible) to write all-new, handcrafted and personalized emails to each candidate. This is why copy-and-paste has become a true friend for many recruiters. Even then, it takes recruiters a long time to get back to candidates. It’s why we see so many candidates caught in the dark, with no single clue about their application status.

Luckily, a hiring platform can help you automate email follow-ups from start to finish. It simply allows you to personalize all your emails and send them to candidates in real-time. You no longer need to inform candidates one by one that you’re moving them from one stage to another. Even better, the hiring platform helps you pull key information from a candidate’s profile such as their name and position. You can even specify or add any time delays or opt to send them from your own email to add a touch of personalization.

Not only do these automated emails save a significant chunk of the recruiter’s time, but it will also significantly improve the candidate experience. There’s one task you can wipe off your plate!

Interviewing scheduling

Interview scheduling is one of the most daunting tasks in the world of recruitment. Just thinking about organizing the most suitable time that works for everyone is just another headache every recruiter seeks to avoid.
To relieve recruiting teams from this burden and reduce time spent on this admin task, many hiring platforms enable you to automate the process of scheduling interviews. This can be through calendar integrations, built-in customizable interview templates, self-scheduling interview links, and an agenda that shows you at a glance all your team’s scheduled interviews.

When candidates get to choose their interview times, it saves you a lot of time; especially when it comes to email back-and-forths. Imagine that a candidate needs to pass through 3 or 4 interviews with your company. It will be far easier for them to schedule all these interviews in one go and in one day. Also, it’s pretty much more efficient for the recruiting team since this process speeds up collaboration and minimizes delays in the interview process.

Collecting data-driven insights

In traditional hiring, recruiters would rely on luck and intuition more than they did on data. At the end of the day, it can be quite time-consuming to stockpile and analyze data. In fact, they used to only hope or assume their hiring methods and practices were effective. Think of it like a guess-and-pray method.

But now, with advanced hiring platforms and data-backed analytic tools, recruiters can get quick access to advanced analytics and data-driven insights. Where they can learn everything they need to know about the candidates and track recruitment metrics with ease. Helping them get a bird’s eye view of their talent acquisition and spot bottlenecks at a glance.

Collecting data-driven insights automatically helps recruiters allocate their budget, unearth hiring issues, increase productivity, forecast their hiring, and make more objective hiring decisions.

In short

Even if your hiring team is used to manual HR tasks, you’ll find a stronger ally in a hiring platform. A hiring platform will help you see what worked and what didn’t in the past and indefinitely remove HR tasks from your to-do lists. As soon as you leverage an automated hiring platform, you can transform your hiring process into a fast and efficient experience that attracts top talent at scale.

EVA-REC is an award-winning hiring platform that helps hiring teams reduce time-to-hire, and assess candidates fairly and secure top talent at scale.
