HR Recruitment Software
HR recruitment software is business software used by human resources teams and staffing agencies to find good candidates for job openings. The software functionality can be found in many human resource management systems (HRMS) as a core capability. HR recruitment software helps streamline the processes that HR staff and recruiters perform during the hiring life cycle, freeing them up to spend more time on higher-level activities such as screening and interviewing candidates, or developing HR policies and procedures.
The growth of an organization is directly related to the growth of its employees, in experience, skills, and number. HR recruitment software supports a company's growth and expansion by helping it find the best qualified candidates. The software is particularly helpful in finding candidates when skills are in short supply and high demand.
How HR recruitment software works
HR recruitment software connects to online resume databases and speeds up the search of candidate resumes that pass company qualification requirements. Job posts are easily distributed through various digital channels, including social networking sites. The software lets HR professionals reach out quickly to targeted groups of candidates and promote the company. As more job seekers expect communication from companies, the software provides the connection that attracts and encourages candidates to continue engaging with the company.
For HR teams and recruiters, the software helps them organize the recruitment process. It provides a central workspace to store resumes, appointments, emails, test results, interviews, assessments, and other candidate information. HR staff can easily access and revisit this information for review, approval, and selection.
HR recruitment software features
HR recruitment software can specialize in one area or offer all-in-one capabilities. The software typically allows HR staff to:
Create a database of candidates
Manage job posts
Search and filter resumes
Test and assess skills
Screen and shortlist candidates
Match vacancies against candidates
Provide communication channels, including social media
Automate selection and approval process
Attract, engage, and nurture candidates
Some companies choose several specialized solutions or integrate two or more products to get their preferred solution. Others prefer a single, unified solution.
HR recruitment software enables a company to hire the candidate with the best qualifications or the most potential. However, retaining a valuable employee is another important objective of any organization. As such, the software is used together with other HR tools or its functionality is looked for in a more comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) or human capital management (HCM) solution. That way, the full employee life cycle, from attraction and recruitment, up to retention and separation, is managed successfully.
