Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the makers of SmartSearch®, announces the first Smart Practices webinar of 2015 in its event series for recruiters, staffing, and human resources professionals. On Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 9am PST, featured guest speaker Geoffrey Dubiski, Chief Talent Scout with Sumner Grace, will discuss the critical value of how companies can utilize an applicant tracking system to improve the rate of time-to-hire and increase the ROI of this important metric.

In today's workplace, time-to-hire has become a sticking point for many companies as they seek out the best and brightest talent, but due to an abundance of under-qualified job seekers and positions which are niche and require specific skill-sets, finding and hiring appropriate individuals has become a critical need for many organizations. Many employers are being more particular during the hiring process which has led to positions staying open longer. This is a bigger picture issue impacting productivity, client relationships and a loss of money for companies.

“Sought-after candidates, especially the passive candidate or employed worker, are not interested in the excessively long interview and assessment process. This has left many companies vulnerable to loss of revenue as they continue the search for qualified candidates,” says Doug Coull, CEO, APS.

This webinar reveals how a proactive approach to pipelining and implementation of your ATS can assist in reducing time-to-hire without compromising the quality candidates every employer desires. Attendees will walk away with how-to tips that can be executed to gain control of managing and monitoring time-to-hire and covers how to create a strategy that is both budget-wise and targeted to drive process improvement and future results.

"Time to fill is one of the most abused and misunderstood metrics in recruiting as well as one of the most influential to the entire organization,” states Dubiski. “To get this metric wrong, and miss the analytical upside, is probably why your leadership does not value recruiting as a profitable influencer to the organization. Let's change that!"
