I’ve said for years that the company career site is really the heart of not just a talent acquisition team’s employment branding strategy but their entire recruiting process. I recently sat down with GR8 People to demo their one-experience talent platform. When it comes to the candidate experience, it’s important for candidates to feel like the entire recruitment marketing process is seamless from interest to apply to the employee.
The challenge with a seamless process is that for most HR technologies, this isn’t possible because so much of our technologies in recruitment and hiring are separate and lack true integration. This makes the candidate experience incomplete and filled with stops and starts for the candidate and applicant. GR8 People’s platform offers a solution that is consistent and smooth at whatever stage your candidates are in throughout their hiring journey.
Customizable Career Site Options That Offer Robust Reporting
One of my favorite platform components is GR8 People’s career website CMS, GR8 BRAND. Fully customizable and content rich career site pages offer ease-of-navigation and job alerts, plus career site analytics to deliver the data and reporting companies need to understand and fine tune the candidate recruiting process online.
GR8 People’s UX interface makes for an exceptional experience for the job candidate as well as the recruiter. The recruiter dashboard is customizable and easy to navigate.
Another standout feature of GR8 People’s career site technology is the ability to customize and personalize the candidate experience based on a returning candidate’s cookied information and past history. Returning career site visitors are served content that is unique to their past site activity, including talent community visits as the platform also has GR8 CRM–robust software that’s further complemented by employee referral, internal mobility and campus/event solutions.
Your Recruiting Is Only as Good As Your Recruitment Workflow
When it comes to successful hiring, it all starts with effective and efficient recruiting processes and workflows. GR8 People’s ATS, GR8 HIRE, provides unlimited customizable recruiting workflows that help recruiters uncover bottlenecks and opportunities to streamline their hiring processes, which can result in an overall reduction in time to fill averages. In addition, workflows are able to leverage artificial intelligence using machine learning to better anticipate the needs of candidates and recruiters, especially when it comes to hiring process requirements. Their AI technology named EUREKA! improves recruiter efficiency and hiring outcomes through job candidate matching and automated communications for internal as well as external candidates, candidate qualification, and other automation and intuitive suggestions that make the experience better for job seekers and recruiters alike.
EUREKA! uses machine learning to deliver better matching and search results over time, and the AI-driven technology was developed to allow for ongoing feedback and refining by the recruiters themselves. This encourages the human checks and balances needed to ensure that AI is delivering the matches and scoring in line with the talent acquisition team’s unique hiring needs.
Recruiting Isn’t a Spectator Sport. Collaboration Is Key.
One of the biggest challenges for recruiters today is collaboration, feedback, and input from hiring managers to match the right candidates with the right job openings and move them through the process quickly. I love GR8 People’s collaboration focus. From calendar integrations with 365 and Gmail to messaging templates and automated self scheduling, the platform facilitates candidate engagement throughout the process and hiring manager involvement every step of the way.
GR8 People’s one-experience recruiting platform is the solution recruiters have been looking for– a consistent and integrated candidate experience that offers customization and collaboration between the job seeker, hiring manager, and recruiter every step of the way. Their application of AI and automation further supports a talent acquisition team’s ability to create personalized and intuitive experiences.
