You better make sure that it’s a company that is going to be a partner in that relationship and not just a customer support call center.
Capitola, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2009
According to Bob Schulte, president and chief executive officer of HR Services Inc., 60 percent of mid-market companies do not have an applicant tracking system (ATS) for recruiting and onboarding employees. Schulte shared his insight during an interview with HRmarketer.com’s president, Kevin Grossman.
In more than ten years since developing myStaffingPro, a full-featured applicant tracking and recruiting software system and a proprietary product of HR Services, Schulte finds the majority of mid-market companies have home-grown processes in place for hiring and onboarding their workforce. Although still useful in hiring, Schulte suggests companies instead put an ATS in place. With an ATS companies can reduce recruiting and onboarding costs, reduce employee turnover and increase efficiency in the hiring process.
In evaluating a new ATS, Schulte recommends customers ensure the ATS provider go beyond simply providing a technology or a product. An ATS provider should help its customer’s understand how to use the product to make their business more efficient.
“In the long run, the applicant tracking relationship most likely will be a very important and long-term relationship,” said Schulte. “You better make sure that it’s a company that is going to be a partner in that relationship and not just a customer support call center.”
