The biggest challenge facing all start-ups and small businesses is striking a balance between day-to-day operations and securing great hires who can take your business to the next level.
Financial limitations and time constraints often make it difficult to acquire great people and keep businesses from growing. Fortunately, there is one valuable resource that you can rely on to save the time, effort and money you spend on talent acquisition – an applicant tracking system!
If growth is on your cards, an ATS can help you expand without investing extra hours or pausing operations until the hiring is completed. Following are a few key features of a fully-loaded ATS that can help small business add staff and stay competitive.
Key Features of an ATS that can help you raise Your Headcount While saving Time, Money & Effort
More than 70% jobseekers consider the brand before applying.
- Company Information
- Work Environment
- Employee Reviews
Your brand greatly influences your ability to identify, attract and recruit top talent. An ATS helps you project your brand effectively with a branded, hosted site that leaves a lasting first impression on your prospects and inspires them to apply by conveying a positive culture and reflecting a welcoming work environment. A branded careers site is your first step to planting the seeds of future success by attracting the best of the breed.
Posts Jobs Everywhere without Spending a Ton of Time
An ATS can post jobs on multiple job boards and social platforms simultaneously in seconds.
Creating accounts on different channels and posting jobs on different platforms every time a vacancy is generated can take hours. This is the most complicated and time-consuming activity of any recruitment program but it can be easily automated with an ATS.
Every time a vacancy is created, all you need to do is post it once and the ATS will automatically distribute it everywhere to save your time and effort. The time you save can be used to refocus your resources on core strategies so that you keep growing.
Upload Resumes in a Snap Using Smart Filter Intelligence
More than 94% of recruiters have experienced a dramatic improvement in their work efficiency after using ATS for advertising jobs online.
When too many applications are pouring in, it is hard to keep track especially when each arrives in a different format. Take your filtering time from hours to minutes and stay organized with an ATS.
Its resume parser allows recruiters to import resumes in a jiffy and turns them into a structured format for quick screening making it easy to find your relevant candidates with desired qualities. After all, it is your new hires that will steer your venture in the right direction.
Auto-Response & Engagement Emails for Easy Candidate Management
68% of applicants reject a company if the recruiter fails to keep the prospect engaged and informed.
When you are recruiting, the process for every applicant may not run at the same pace. Informing every candidate at every stage and keeping them updated on their progress, can leave you lost in the process. Save the time and energy spent on engagement emails and ensure a positive candidate experience with an ATS that keeps you connected with automated engagement emails.
This way you can not only ensure a positive candidate experience but also spend more time finding other qualified candidates who have the potential to be your partners in growth.
Smart Reports and Unlimited Cloud Storage with 24X7 Uptime
Small businesses can enjoy huge benefits by shifting from a manual reporting system to real-time automated metrics.
An ATS auto generates accurate reports that track your daily performance and processes. Its built-in analytics precisely identify and pinpoint gaps so that you can improve your existing policies and procedures. It also saves any amount of data to accommodate the growing needs of your company while ensuring round the clock access to information on any device.
Just think what all could be accomplished in the time that you spend processing data manually. An ATS lets you focus on your core business strategies and brings in the business agility that makes you fast, efficient and reliable.
