With each year that goes by, staffing professionals are expected to take on an increasing amount of responsibilities on the job to maintain client satisfaction and ensure administrative needs are met. In fact, the ever-changing nature of the staffing landscape has left many staffing professionals struggling to find the right balance between candidate recruitment and new client development. Fortunately, advanced applicant tracking systems – known as an ATS – have made it easier for staffing pros to manage the many moving parts of their day-to-day tasks.
As you seek to increase efficiencies at your staffing firm, here are a few of the many advantages offered by an applicant tracking system (ATS):
Managing processes in one place.
Juggling hundreds of applicants at any one time can be overwhelming for any staffing professional. Utilizing an ATS can do wonders in helping you effectively manage all the various aspects of the recruitment process, from screening all the way through the final hiring stage. Now with so many online tools, the need to manage all components of hiring in one place is critical. For example, an ATS allows recruiters to easily post jobs to various online job boards and social media channels, eliminating the need to log in to each site to make one post. Streamlining the management process saves staffing firms both time and money, as recruiters can perform all aspects of candidate recruitment under one umbrella platform. In many cases, this may even eliminate the need for assistants or secretaries, as recruiters are able to handle administrative demands with ease and efficiency.
Focusing on finding high-quality candidates.
Without an ATS, it’s easy for recruiters to become overburdened by the administrative needs of their jobs, such as compiling a list of candidates for future jobs. Rather than manage several different folders of candidates in different industries, an ATS allows you to easily build and access a comprehensive database of high-quality resumes. Having a system that compiles all candidate materials and documents will reduce administrative tasks related to the recruitment process, allowing more time to search and identify the best candidates. The more you can focus on candidate search and placement, the more satisfied your clients will be with hiring outcomes.
Ensure government compliance.
Compliance issues, especially regarding employment discrimination, come up often in the staffing industry. An ATS can play a key role in reducing the incidence of these issues, as it automates many parts of the recruitment process that ensure adherence to government regulations.
As you can see, implementing an ATS platform helps you maximize your productivity, allowing you to focus on the parts of your job that matter most – adding value to clients and creating positive hiring outcomes.
