Wondering what tech tools recruitment and talent acquisitions professionals need to work smarter not harder? We’ve got you covered.

Below, we’ve detailed three tech tools that can help you to streamline manual processes, automate simple tasks and make the recruitment process more joyful. 

1. Text recruiting

Text recruiting can streamline and simplify your recruitment process, and the stats back this up. 

Approximately 95% of the text messages people receive are opened, read and responded to within just three minutes. The average person takes 90 seconds to respond to a text, much faster than the 90 minutes it takes to respond to an email. 

Text recruiting can be used to:

  • Send applicants interview reminders
  • Answer questions from candidates
  • Check in after an interview
  • Let candidates know about new opportunities

2. Video cover letters

A video cover letter gives candidates the chance to show themselves and their personality, and they can be really useful when it comes to roles that receive a large volume of candidates. 

Many recruiters and talent acquisition professionals love video cover letters as it allows them to gain a deeper understanding of the candidate, their communication style and how they present themselves. 

Video cover letters are useful for a variety of roles, including sales and customer service, and they can reduce your time to hire, weeding out time-wasters and easily identifying fit for a role. 

3. Automated background checks

A good background screening solution will streamline the screening process and eliminate a bunch of manual processing that exists in the traditional workflow. 

Today’s background screening solutions optimise system integrations, data security, cloud technology, process automation and user experience to automate this time-consuming process.
