With the biggest shift to remote working we have ever seen, it’s become evident that our recruiting process needs some adjustments. More and more companies are looking to hire remote workers and countries worldwide are changing their employment laws, making it easier to recruit employees.
Research shows that around 62% of employees aged 22 to 65 work remotely at least occasionally. This is a substantial number of people who are getting used to a new way of working and expecting to go through a new hire onboarding process just like employees in offices would.
Since this situation creates a new set of challenges for both recruitment agents and potential employees, we’ve created an actionable guide on which tools to use in order to help you find and retain the best talent for your company.
JazzHR lets you streamline your recruiting process, from candidate sourcing, employer branding, interviews, reporting, and more. It helps you track applicants throughout the process so that you have a clear view of where everyone is in the recruitment process.
The platform helps you automate your processes by eliminating redundant applicant tracking tasks. You can post job listings on 15 free job boards at no extra cost, but our favorite feature is importing the passive job candidates.
Often, a perfect candidate already has a job and isn’t actively looking for another one. Since candidates like that are hard to reach, JazzHR has created a Candidate Importer Browser Plugin that finds prospects on sites like LinkedIn, Github, and AngelList and lets you easily import them to your account.
This ultimately diminishes the need for paying for several accounts on different platforms, like LinkedIn recruiter accounts.
