An essential tool for running a succesful recruitment agency
See Bullhorn's Recruiting Database!
A quality recruitment database is a recruiting firm’s lifeblood. It is an essential tool for storing and managing candidate information, matching applicants with jobs, and streamlining the recruiting process to save you time and money. The benefits of a quality candidate database are undeniable - for starters, candidates from an existing database are a recruiting firm’s top source of placements.
In today’s competitive job market, professional recruiters must operate at optimum efficiency in order to increase their placements and grow their business. A well-maintained database enables your recruiters to better communicate with candidates, spend less time on tasks that don’t add value, and more time on relationships. Once you determine your firm’s database needs, you’ll be well-positioned to make more placements more efficiently in less time.
It’s pretty straightforward - to have an effective and productive recruiting firm, your database needs clean, quality data. Here are some questions to ask yourself before you choose the database that works for your firm
1. Is your recruiting database part of your ATS?
Before you choose a database, it’s best to find a system that can grow with you. Having a candidate database that is a part of your ATS will save you crucial time and money as you build your business.
2. How are you growing and maintaining your database?
While growing your database is critical, be sure that you don’t compromise on the quality of information. It’s important to ensure that you’ve screened candidates so that your database continues to be efficient and effective. As new candidates and information are added to your database, use the right technology tools to parse resumes and reach out to candidates to fill in gaps. Having accurate information will ensure that your database remains one of your most valuable assets.
3. Does your recruitment CRM have the right tools?
A CRM can provide additional tools and features that enable you to streamline the recruiting process and make the most of your database. Think of what tools are important to your recruiting firm - Do you want to be alerted of duplicate records and archive inactive ones? Do you want to save time by integrating to job boards and find current candidate information with a LinkedIn integration? Is it crucial that your CRM can integrate with your email system to help better manage relationships? Pinpointing the tools and features that are the most helpful to your business will set your firm up for future success.
By evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of your candidate database, you’ll be in a great position to improve it. Database maintenance isn’t a one-off duty, but the rewards are tremendous. Ongoing maintenance monitoring and training will not only give you clean data, but it will also improve your fill rate and consequently your revenue and profitability. A well-managed database is one of your greatest—and most valuable—assets.
