What is recruitment software?
Recruitment software is a broad umbrella category that includes all the technology staffing and recruiting professionals use to run their business. The most commonly used staffing software is an applicant tracking system, a tool for managing the entire recruitment lifecycle. The ATS is traditionally the centerpiece of recruiting activity, and will integrate with other more specialized software.
Other common staffing software solutions include:
- Recruiting automation
- VMS integration
- Time and Expense
What recruiting software do I need?
It depends on the goals and challenges of your specific business. Regardless of your firm’s specific needs, an ATS/CRM is a safe bet; it’s the core of any staffing firm’s operations. Seven out of eight recruiters say an ATS is integral to their ability to find and place candidates.
Additionally, a good ATS will integrate with any other solutions you use to run your business, now or in the future.
As for other solutions, it helps to identify your businesses top priorities. Here are some common priorities:
Candidate Sourcing: A report of 2,100 recruiting professionals found that candidate acquisition is the top priority for 2021 and candidate sourcing is the biggest recruiting lifecycle challenge.
