Recruiting new staff has always been challenging for HR teams, and it’s not just finding new talent – admin can make the whole process unnecessarily arduous. While no magic wand is available, document management solutions can deliver an efficient, automated recruitment process that addresses obstacles from the very first step.
Busy HR departments deal with a lot of applications and it’s difficult to stay on top of compliance management. One of the most challenging processes is ensuring disposal of unsuccessful applications. With paper-based recruitment it’s easy for printed CVs to sit unnoticed around the office long after they should have been disposed of. With digital HR solutions this is much simpler - unsuccessful applications are permanently deleted without any action required.
When applications are successful, HR teams often have to spend time manually entering their data into HR systems. Digital solutions can save valuable time by digitally extracting information and then automatically storing it, compliantly, in a central repository.
As well as ensuring you’re compliant, digital systems provide companies with much clearer insight into their recruitment process. Analytics across the entire recruitment journey enable bottlenecks and delays to be pinpointed and reduced, helping HR improve the system over time.
