  • Manage Ownership Experience: We have enhanced the ‘Manage Ownership’ experience on entity lists so that the ‘change owner’ action is now ‘manage ownership.’

Enhanced Credentialing Functionality

Bullhorn Credentialing

Bullhorn’s enhanced credentialing capabilities enable customers to efficiently manage credentials across the whole organization, with configurability to best match each agency’s unique workflow. In turn, recruiters can ensure that only qualified candidates get submitted to jobs, reducing the compliance risk of incorrectly making a placement with someone who is unqualified.

  • Credential Requirements List: Credentials are now a first-class entity, just like Candidates, Contacts, or Jobs, meaning that customers can now view credential requirements in a dynamic list, filter/sort/search/configure the list, and take mass actions. As a result, credentialing teams can efficiently interact with Credentials, just like with other Bullhorn entities.

  • Credential Files as a Secure New Entity: Individual or groups of credential requirements can now be specified at the client (or facility) level and flow through the recruiting workflow to Jobs, Submissions, and Placements, ensuring compliance across the entire workflow.

  • Submission Workflow Enhancements: File attachments (such as certificate images) can now also be stored securely on credential records, with robust role-based access control to protect confidential candidate and employee data, empowering teams with complete credential control.
