5 Proven Ways An Advanced ATS Can Make Your Recruiters Happier
October 20, 2022
The war for talent keeps raging on and on. In fact, with the competition heating up, having top recruiters is now a hot commodity. This ultimately means that employers will now have to do more to retain their star recruiters, especially if they aim to recruit the top talent they need. Sadly, while many recruiters love their jobs, recruiter burnout and turnover rates are significantly high. So what can employers do to make their recruiters happier? Well, we have one word for you: ATS.
An advanced ATS is the secret sauce to recruiting success.
It helps recruiters automate the hiring process and streamline workflows like never before. It also helps them save time, become efficient, and most importantly, be happier. Wondering how? Here are 5 proven ways!
Reduce recruiter burnout
Hiring top talent can be extremely stressful. Ask any recruiter and they’ll agree with that. From the Great Resignation to the lack of tools and resources – many recruiters are on the brink of burnout. Recruiters are now forced to work double-time to attract top talent. In fact, it’s hard for recruiters to avoid burnout when they have a lot going on and so much piling up on their plates. So how exactly can employers make their recruiters happier? You got that right – by leveraging an ATS! An end-to-end ATS combats recruiter burnout by automating manual and tedious recruitment tasks. It frees recruiters from the burden of manually tracking candidates at each stage, sending emails, posting jobs on different job boards, and shortlisting top talent. This way, recruiters don’t need to start their mornings with flying stress levels, wondering if they should skip their lunch break just to tick things off their to-do lists. Instead, an ATS takes care of all the energy-depleting tasks that would otherwise leave recruiters debilitated and exhausted.
Boost team collaboration
In the past, recruiters would be in charge of all the tasks in the hiring process. In fact, one recruiter would be in charge of managing more than one role, communicating with candidates, managing pipelines, and tracking candidates – all on their own. But those days are long gone. With an ATS, recruiting teams can seamlessly collaborate together, share tasks, and allocate responsibilities. This alleviates recruiters from being solely responsible for the hiring process. With a more collaborative hiring approach, recruiters can work together, assess candidates, solicit feedback, rate applications, and engage in discussions – all in one place. Not only that, but recruiters can even expedite the approval process with an ATS. Where they can seamlessly manage and set approval workflows for job postings or job requisitions. This way, recruiters can get approvals from their managers faster and sail through the hiring process at the speed of light. All in all, collaborative hiring decreases stress levels for recruiters, improves the chance of recruiting cultural fits, and makes them happier at the workplace.
In the past, recruiters used to be confined to the office. Especially when it comes to processing paper, sending emails, collaborating with teammates, or even speaking with their managers. Today, recruiters can rely on an advanced ATS to put HR in their pockets and recruit on the go! With an applicant tracking system, recruiters can manage the hiring process at any time or place. Whether it’s from their favorite couch, the backyard, or the coffee shop across the corner – recruiters can enjoy a greater level of flexibility with an ATS by their side. In fact, recruiters can even use their mobiles to communicate with candidates, answer emails, move candidates between pipelines, track recruitment metrics, or screen candidates. As a result, this spares recruiters from being confined to a particular location or device just to manage the hiring process.
Integrate with top HR tools
All recruiters have a list of tools that they can’t go a day without. Whether it’s Gmail, LinkedIn, DocuSign, Monster, Indeed, or Glassdoor – there is a suite of tools out there that can help recruiters take the hiring process to the very next level. Unfortunately, recruiters need to open endless tabs just to access and utilize these tools. Not with an ATS though! With an ATS like EVA-REC recruiters can seamlessly build, run, and scale their hiring workflows by integrating with the tools they love and use on a daily basis. No more jumping between different browsers and tabs. From one single tab, recruiters can integrate with world-class tech providers and 2,000+ job boards! Not only that, but they can even sync their emails with Gmail or Microsoft Outlook to keep communication flowing in real-time – and from a single location.
Reduce unnecessary busywork
In this day and age, it’s time to stop approaching recruitment like a numbers game. Recruiters don’t need to shortlist a specific number of candidates a day to prove their efficiency. Nor do they need to post jobs haphazardly on random job boards just to show their managers that they’re doing their job. Recruitment is about quality, not quantity. Overworking recruiters will only tarnish your employer brand, eat into operating costs, put an extra strain on recruiters, and increase recruiter burnout. Luckily, an ATS frees recruiters from this burden so that they can focus more on better work, not overwork. Allowing them to automate pesky little tasks that screening resumes, sending emails, updating pipelines, and keeping track of candidates – so they can focus more on what’s important. Like building better connections with candidates and improving their recruitment strategy. No more getting bogged down on a specific stage in the hiring process. Instead, recruiters can eliminate redundant and unnecessary steps to make better use of their time and resources.
