Small Businesses Benefit From Applicant Tracking Systems Too!
Securing a great hire is a huge victory for any company. Nobody is going to deny that. That’s why successful companies of all sizes spend so much time, effort and money in acquiring their talent. Unfortunately, sometimes financial limitations can prevent good organizations from using valuable resources that exist to help with this task.
Point in case: APPLICANT TRACKING SYSTEMS
An applicant tracking system (ATS) is basically a souped up database and accompanying software designed to keep track of job applicants. This HR tool usually keeps scanned copies of resumes and lists job references and brings up job applicant histories for your organization. More sophisticated versions can help you find changes or discrepancies in candidate information and allow you to search for specific features you are looking for in people by indexing and organizing resumes and job skills when you import them. An ATS can save you hours of time during the recruiting and hiring process, and what company doesn’t want to become more efficient?
“Having a robust applicant tracking system is simply an extremely good thing,” says Tina Hamilton, president and CEO of hireVision Group. “An applicant tracking system will build a history for an organization, such as ours. This is especially beneficial for local clients, since we have interviewed so many people over the last 9 and a half years that we have a history on many, many applicants. That being said, applicant tracking systems are still very expensive.”
So what’s a small or midsized company to do?
For companies that are not able or ready to invest in an ATS of their own, we offer the opportunity for clients to have access to our exceptional system without having to make the investment themselves. Clients can use our system as their own to the extent that they need. We have teamed up with iCIMS to provide our clients with access to a state-of-the-art ATS as part of our integrated Hiring Process Management program.
