The Most Common Mistakes People Make With Recruitment Software


Cloud based recruitment software helps to make your hiring process more efficient but it can’t fix fundamental issues within your talent acquisition strategy.

Here are eight of the most common mistakes made by HR when they invest in technology:-

Your screening is too broad : Applying general keywords or criteria to your applicant tracking software will leave you with a mounting pile of CVs to review. Be specific with your screening. New research from the Aberdeen Group found that best in class organisations are 36% more likely to use assessments in the pre-hire process. Incorporate additional screening such as video interviews and online psychometric assessments available through your recruitment software to ensure you see only the most qualified candidates.
