What is an Applicant Tracking System?
An applicant tracking system is software that helps each organization in its unique way. However, one process that remains constant in all of these organizations is the process of attracting, hiring, and maximizing talent. To achieve these end goals, recruiters will need the help of software that provides the minimum help needed to attract the best of talents. ATS is one such software that allows for better functioning in the department. But why is TurboHire’s ATS free? Well, apart from providing some of the benefits to our customers, here’s a list of other reasons why TurboHire is providing a free ATS version.
5 significant benefits of Applicant Tracking for a recruiter
1. Provides a faster and better resume screening experience
No more wasting time on bad applicants and trying to identify talented profiles as all of this can now be done with the help of automation. Each new job opening in an organization will indeed lead to an average of 250 applicants which is quite an overwhelming number. It is hence a hard task when recruiters need to condense the numbers to just 5 or 6 candidates. An ATS however helps reduce this task by filtering off candidates with the right match with the help of an initial screening of all applications.
2. Reduces the stress of heavy paperwork
Paperwork is not the only thing that stresses out recruiters, it is also the budgets that tend to lead to the stress. However, when papers are used lesser, the lower the amount of money being spent on them. Hence by digitizing the entire task, recruiters can save on both work and paper.
According to statistics, it is observed that about 33% of the HR manager spend most of their time on payroll and administration, which in turn leaves out less amount of time for engaging with employees, their training, and for productive strategies to be implemented. With ATS, recruiters can digitally store all of the work on an e- cloud platform and hence provide time for other tasks that take up time.
3. Allows candidates to apply quickly and easily for jobs
According to a study conducted by CareerBuilder, it is found that candidates do not want to complete the applications that will take longer than 20 minutes. This will hence lead to a loss of talented candidates applying for the open positions. To ensure that the best of talents apply for the job, you need to ensure that there is a one-click application being facilitated or reduce the time needed. This can now be achieved by utilizing ATS which provides a lower amount of time needed to apply for the jobs.
4. Provides great communication and increases engagement
According to a study conducted by G2, it is found that about 63% of job seekers tend to reject a job offer due to a bad candidate experience. This is exactly why recruiters need to focus more on the candidate experience and engagement front, which will help them get the relevant candidates for the position.
With several integrations and the activities related to HR being combined all into a single place, it is easier to focus on communicating with the candidates. TurboHire provides a better way to communicate with candidates all in a single place with the help of WhatsApp, Instagram, and LinkedIn integrations along with the other ATS facilities.
5. Streamlining the process of onboarding
Successful onboarding is one of the main sections of the hiring process. According to statistics gathered by SHRM, it was observed that about 69% of the employees are more likely to stay for more than 3 years if they experience great onboarding. This means retaining an employee will eventually depend on the onboarding experience the employee receives.
With TurboHire’s ATS integration along with SAP Success factors, recruiters can take a sigh of relief for providing a great onboarding experience.
