1. Risk Management – keeping risks down to a minimum
The easiest thing to explain to management is how there are risk factors in recruitment that can thwart a successful hire. A lot of these risks come from errors in communication both internal (with the hiring team) and external (with the candidate). There are also new legal risks that have come up with the implementation of GDPR regulations. Let your management know, that you can mitigate all of the major risks that can hinder your recruitment, with an ATS system.
Applicant Tracking System are specifically built to help recruiters collaborate with other recruiters and communicate with candidates through mobile chat, email – while keeping a history of everything. New ATS systems also have built in features for GDPR compliance that can automate and make sure you are always keeping up with regulations.
2. Allow recruiters to use their time more valuably
It is important to explain to management, why it is we hire experienced specialists as recruiters. We want to use their expertise on people, interviews and make sure their time is used valuably. ATS systems can help achieve that with their resume scanning features and ranking systems. Before ATS systems could automatically scan thousands of resumes to filter through candidates that match the needs and skills for an open position, recruiters were tasked with manually going through every single resume or CV that is received – sometimes this can be 100’s of resumes, only to have a handful that are actually qualified for the position. This is very valuable time that can be saved with an ATS! New ATS systems even incorporate AI to find the resumes that actually are valuable. Let your management know that recruiters time is valuable!
