Recruiting automation empowers talent acquisition professionals to automate parts of the hiring process that were previously performed manually. Many of these technologies (including Emissary) use A.I. (artificial intelligence) ML (machine learning) and predictive capabilities.
These can be found during all stages of your recruiting process from pre-applicant stage to the apply process and hiring to onboarding. At Emissary we also specialize in automated features such as drip campaigns, triggered messaging, automated scheduling, chat bots, and talent pipeline texting.
Modern employers are beginning to embrace the benefits of recruiting automation in an effort to differentiate themselves with candidates while creating a competitive advantage when it comes to hiring.
These employers have realized that past hiring tactics just don't work as well as the 'new' way to recruit. Though some of them have had to learn the hard way, they seek better hiring outcomes in shorter timeframes with fewer man hours used. It's also about saving valuable time for the recruiter themselves so they can get back to the business of doing what they do best, recruiting!
According to SHRM, employers who put recruiting automation into place reduce time to hire by between 7 and 15 percent, (thats 4.5 days per role on average), a significant number. And when you multiply those days by the cost of jobs going unfilled you can see where the ROI lies.
Here's a look at how automation has made its way into recruiting:
Just because automation in recruiting is going mainstream, doesn't mean it's the end of recruiters. Quite the contrary. It will simply free up the time to make more human connections between talent and those who seek them. Most recruiters you talk to today feel overwhelmed with too many job requisitions. The right automation strategy frees them of that burden.
