It’s a tight labor market out there. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment rates have remained steady at 3.7%. This means that it is a job seeker’s market. As an employer, you’re going to need to work harder to retain great employees and to attract good people to your company. To do so, you need the right tools to manage employee benefits, employee records, and applicant information.
Sage HRMS: Better Human Resources Management
Sage HRMS offers better human resources management. With Sage HRMS, you can provide employee self-service benefits management. Employees can review their personnel records, make updates and changes to information, and find benefits information through a centralized portal. This saves them a great deal of time and saves your human resources staff time, too.
Another great feature of Sage HRMS is its link directly to your payroll and accounting system. With this link, you can calculate payroll, taxes, and social security payments. It makes it much easier and faster to manage all the functions associated with employee benefits and payroll.
Applicant Tracking Systems: Sage HRMS Cyber Recruiter
Another new software that’s helping employers in a tight job market is an applicant tracking system. According to a report from Software Advice, 26% of recruiters said that an applicant tracking system led to a positive experience among applicants. That’s good news because first impressions are lasting impressions and a positive applicant experience may lead to an overall good impression of your company. In a tight job market, you need every advantage to woo potential candidates. You want them to perceive your company as a great place to work from the second they fill out an application.
An applicant tracking system facilitates job applications from completing the initial paperwork to screening people’s work histories according to criteria that you establish for each position. They need to be both easy to understand and navigate from the applicant’s perspective and useful for the employer.
Good applicant tracking systems are useful adjuncts to a comprehensive HRMS system that helps you manage the employment process from the initial application through employment. The data derived from both systems can help you understand the type of people your company attracts and how to improve recruiting efforts to attract the very best candidates available in order to build a strong workforce.
Sage HRMS Cyber Recruiter blends new applicant tracking features so you can always be recruiting, seeking the best and brightest people to fill top spots in your company. Cyber Recruiter offers an excellent tool to manage candidates from the initial contact through to the final offer.
