14 Feb Why Recruiting Agencies Should Use Salesforce
Have you been working through the recruitment process with an employer that you adore? Every bit of information that you uncover during the research process makes you more excited about joining the organization. Every time you interact with your hiring team has firmed your belief that it is the right place for you to work at.
After a few successful interviews, you finally get that job offer! You are excited; you accept the offer right away. You are all set to get started as soon as possible. But then you have been ghosted for weeks and perhaps even a month. It has happened to almost everyone at some point. You are confused about what’s going on?
For candidates, it’s a disappointment, but for an employer who is keeping the candidate in the dark, it’s even worse. Lack of communication is how companies lose candidates with immense potential. What was the point of an excellent applicant experience if you stop adequately communicating the moment the candidate leaves your premises?
It’s vital that you keep the momentum going, but sometimes, it is easier said than done. The evolution from candidate to employee is not always seamless. You possibly don’t try to waste all your reputation and goodwill – you don’t have any better alternative to transfer the new worker off from the recruitment team to human resources of their new company.
It shouldn’t have to be like this. A more comprehensive and holistic recruiting platform could be the solution to make your recruit’s transition just as thrilling as the experience of the candidate.
But why does an all-in-one comprehensive platform even matter? Numerous solutions for every element of the recruitment procedure should integrate. That is not the same as an all-in-one. That’s where Salesforce gets the job done the right way.
Keep the Whole Organization Up-to-Date
You should keep in mind that your candidates are not only joining one team, but they are also joining an entire company. If you can integrate new recruit’s into the company quickly, it is much likely that they become productive and involved members of the organization.
In addition to this, an integrated system like Salesforce takes a great deal of work, which means that the organization can spend more time and energy on qualitative outreach and keep the employees engaged throughout the whole process.
Develop a Highly Efficient Recruiting Funnel
The recruiting funnel is tied to sales and marketing funnels, and the recruiting funnel is quite similar to client acquisition.
The companies must raise awareness about their products and services, get the leads, and convert leads into regular clients, companies must raise awareness about their jobs, find the potential candidates, and convert the potential candidates into employees.
By using a fully integrated platform, you have more control over each stage of the recruitment funnel. You can expand your possible candidate pool at the top of the funnel. And then comes the bottom of the funnel, you have onboarding, which is the main piece. The hand-off between departments here is quite critical.
You invest a lot of time and energy into hiring a person, and nobody wants to lose that momentum.
By leveling the conversion from a prospect to an employee, an integrated system could help in maintaining the momentum of your candidate. An integrated system enables a recruiter to check on the progress of the new recruit and ensure that the vision that they showed to the recruit actually comes to completion.
Fully Integrated Solutions Are More Efficient
Operational tasks can take up a lot of time throughout the recruitment process. Integrated systems that automate most of these tasks are beneficial.
There is one especially pointless operational task that integrated systems can do away with entirely, which is ensuring that all your third-party apps and integrations are working correctly.
The most critical component of an integrated system is that it is seamlessness. You don’t have to check if the API is working or if you are losing data in transition [from one platform to another]. In-app systems make sure that you will not have anything slip through the cracks.
Also, Salesforce can help the talent acquisition teams, and it becomes even more useful by enabling them to leverage critical recruiting data.
This data provides the talent acquisition teams an ability to zero in on strategies that are working fine and discard the ones that are not.
Monitor and Assess the Candidate’s Experience Progress
Let’s consider a case, when a candidate deals with a single platform instead of three or four during the recruitment process, they are much likely to be less stressed and frustrated with the recruitment process. If your integrated platform consists of an effective mobile component, then your potential candidates will be very much happy.
But there is still one question, will a fully integrated platform resolve each one of your operational woes? Maybe not. The recruitment process as a whole is a bit more complex than that. But it does have the potential to make recruiting, sourcing, hiring, and onboarding a lot easier for you and your candidates. You can say that it is something that you might want to look into very soon.
You shouldn’t be juggling all the platforms when you can find one that does the work for you.
