E-Recruiting: Valspar’s Next Step
Today, the buzzword and the latest trend in recruitment is “e-recruitment”. E-recruitment is also known as “online recruitment”, it is the use of technology or web based tools to assist the recruitment process. We are living in the computer age and organizations are beginning to increasingly depend on the Internet for all types of business activities including online recruitment of candidates. Using e-recruitment allows for many employers to search for job candidates and for applicants to look for jobs. E-recruitment is increasingly being adopted by small and large companies world-wide (Jiffy, 2010). As recruiting gets more and more challenging by the day, most HR managers and executives are on the lookout for ways to shorten recruitment cycles. Most of them have moved away from manual recruitment processes and adopted e-recruitment that is backed by the latest technology to streamline and simplify all recruitment related activities (Taleo). Adopting e-recruitment is a good way of empowering the recruitment process with the latest and the best in recruitments. It not only helps you manage recruitment, but also improves the efficiency of current systems and considerably reduces the cost involved in the entire recruitment procedure (Taleo). There are a number of e-recruitment options available:
* Recruitment software
* Candidate tracking applications
* Job Portals
* Resume databases
The most preferred of these methods is deploying recruitment software that takes care of the recruitment cycle right from sourcing candidate profiles until the candidate finally joins the team.
