Benefits of an Application Tracking System

There are certain roles that are getting harder to fill. Engineers, digital roles, care workers, drivers, nurses etc. Getting the right fit in your business is becoming increasingly important. This is because businesses are becoming leaner and so cannot afford to carry people who are disruptive or who don’t fit and cause friction within the business.

Another factor, is as it is so easy for candidates to simply send their CV to any job regardless of whether they feel they are qualified to do it or not. There is the added challenge of sifting through large numbers of CVs to find the ones that are right for you.

What all this means is that you need to get better at recruitment.

A lot of recruitment is now done digitally and with this comes cloud based systems and technology.

The core element to any recruitment process is an applicant tracking system.
