A successful recruitment process is all about the candidate experience. To attract top talent, companies need to have a hiring process that is quick and painless. The best candidates get hired quickly. If your application takes too long or you are too slow to make an offer, these candidates will move on to other opportunities. Using an applicant tracking system can help you develop a candidate management process that engages candidates, gets them into the top of your recruiting funnel, and enables you to keep them moving expeditiously through the hiring process.
What is Candidate Management?
Candidate management is a recruitment strategy that is primarily focused on the candidate experience and building relationships with applicants. Think of it as relationship management. Candidate management builds relationships with applicants from the first job posting through onboarding. Its goal is to improve a company’s recruiting process to enhance its brand.
