Candidate relationship management is a model for managing a company’s impressions and interactions with potential and future hires. It involves using technology to organize, automate and synchronize the attraction, communication, and management of talent.
Great companies put the smart in recruiting with a great candidate relationship management solution.
Easy Relationship Management
Business leaders need dashboards and candidate relationship solutions to give a clear view of all hiring activity at their company: new candidates expressing interest, colleagues rating, reviewing and sharing candidates, the posting of new job openings, as well as, analytics of recruiting service performance. This clear view of hiring activity, or HireLoop, only displays updates of the jobs each hiring manager, recruiter, HR professional or executive is attached to. Candidate relationship management facilitates the internal hiring discussion with colleagues and the external communication with candidates.
Great companies know every candidate touch point and are aware of what stage each candidate is in within the hiring lifecycle (from Lead to New candidate to In-Review to Interview to Offer to Hire), especially as you close in on making a hire. Not knowing where the candidate is in the hiring lifecycle is a regretable way to miss out on a great hire. Powerful analytics give businesses insights into how to increase the quality of candidates and decrease the expenditure to hire.
