Give a boost to your hiring confidence through the implementation of a tech piece. Here are three ways HR tech helps to optimize recruitment, selection, and onboarding: 1. Data: There’s lots of data out there. You can track, measure, and compare numbers on almost any subject possible. But you must know what data to consider or the results could be catastrophic. For example, in the 1970s, when passenger-side airbags were first installed as a safety feature in personal vehicles, failure to consider certain data during the design phase had fatal results. The first airbags were designed to accommodate the average adult male body. When installed and deployed on the passenger side of a vehicle, the airbags were causing higher rates of injury and death to the passenger, typically a woman or child. Implementation of appropriate systems will allow you to track, measure, report, and adjust your process based on actual findings, improving the quality and speed at which you hire. Data related to your workforce, its stability, and its productivity is critical. With data collected through the recruitment, selection, and onboarding processes, you’re able to better understand
- Time to hire
- Applicant abandonment rate
- Retention risk
- Candidate source quality
- Time to productivity …and many more key metrics that can display the shortfalls and areas for improvement in your hiring and onboarding processes. Implementation of appropriate systems will allow you to track, measure, report, and adjust your process based on actual findings, improving the quality and speed at which you hire.
