Are You Missing the Other Piece?
Choosing the right ATS is a task that staffing firms typically put a lot of time and effort into. And once you’ve chosen the one that best suits your business, trained your people and put it into action, the profits should start rolling in, right?
Not so fast!
Implementing a great ATS without considering your other business practices is like building a beautiful home without furnishing it. Sure the infrastructure is there, but what now? What can you do to bring top-of-the line furnishings in and remember to take the garbage out?
Your applicant tracking system is only as good as the applicants you’re tracking!
How can you bring the right people in?
Think about where you’ve gotten top talent in the past? What marketing strategies can help you to reach the same quality of people? Consider:
- Industry-specific landing pages
- Targeted online advertising
- Recruiting from colleges and universities
- Providing a mobile-friendly interface
- Launching a referral program for current employees
On the other hand, consider whether your house (ATS) can use a good decluttering. Is it full of unqualified people, incomplete applications, and outdated profiles?
It’s tempting to think that the more applicants you have in your database, the better, but wouldn’t you prefer to have a smaller number of the very best people?
How can you get the wrong people out?
If you have chosen wisely, it should be simple to sort your applicant database to determine which candidates meet your standards. Not sure how to go about it? Contact your ATS provider. They should be able to offer the training and support you need to take advantage of all of the system’s great features.
