HR / HCM / PAYROLL SOLUTIONS OVERVIEW
The internet has revolutionised the recruitment process, allowing companies to bypass traditional situations vacant advertising and agency commissions by integrating careers sub-sections into their websites or utilising ‘self-serve’ online advertising options. Prospective employees can either apply directly to available jobs, or simply register their interest in working for a brand. Companies have effectively become their own agencies, inviting ‘passive’ job seekers into a database for future consideration when roles become available. Companies with high-turnover divisions such as call centres have been first to recognise the cost benefits of having a pool of available, pre-screened talent at their disposal.
Company career sites usually provide a facility for job seekers to create a personal account with an email address and password, which they can revisit and update. Job seekers provide information about themselves via an online application form, and are able to view a list of job openings. Targeted questions related to job roles are replacing standard ‘Attach CV’ functionality, to capture exactly the required information, and allow for quicker and unbiased comparisons by employers.
Big job board players such as Seek and search4jobs now provide links from their job adverts to external career sites, allowing for direct entry of candidate information into a company’s talent pool database, and application screening. This represents a huge step forward for employers, who can now avoid being bombarded with masses of emails from candidates with differently formatted CVs and irrelevant information.
