It wasn’t too long ago that most employee incentive programs simply consisted of health benefits and paid vacation days. Today, however, those things are not enough to constitute a world-class employee recognition program. Employers that want to attract and retain top talent in 2016 need to rethink their employee engagement strategies and offer programs that motivate and inspire their employees to strive for more.
Recruiters tend to be people people. They want to build relationships and treat candidates like human beings. Unfortunately, rigid recruiting processes and inefficient recruitment technologies often hold them back. When that happens, recruiting becomes a cold and transactional process — but that’s not the best way to attract top talent. In order to put talent first, recruiters need the right tech tools on their side. This eBook takes a look at exactly what that tech tool might be.
Discussions of mobile recruiting seem to focus almost exclusively on mobile-optimized career sites and job postings. These are important pieces of any mobile recruiting strategy, but they alone are not enough. Recruiters need a way to engage directly with candidates via mobile devices. That’s where text messaging comes in. Texting offers a quicker, easier, more productive alternative to email and phone calls.
Onboarding is the best way to boost new hire productivity, employee engagement, and overall retention rates. Unfortunately, very few companies have the time, money, or manpower to create and maintain best-in-class onboarding programs. That’s where recruitment technology comes in. With the right software solution, any company can bring its onboarding game to the next level.

What recruiters need is automated resume parsing/resume matching software.
When recruiters face animosity from candidates and hiring managers at the same time, it may seem impossible to please anyone. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, recruiters can please everyone. They can deliver great candidate experiences and great hiring manager experiences at the same time. All it takes is the right ATS.
For applicant tracking systems, this is the dawning of a new era. The ATS is evolving right before our very eyes, and these are our ten predictions on the future of the applicant tracking system, the most essential of the recruiter’s tools.
