HR Tech Buying 101: How To Choose Your Next ATS

Here’s the bottom line – and the numbers don’t lie. You need an ATS.

Implementing the wrong HR technology can hurt your brand and profits alike, not just cost you top talent. In fact, 58% of candidates who don’t hear back from an employer are less likely to buy products from that employer. That number increases to 65% if they don’t hear back after the interview.  Choosing the best tech for your company can be difficult.

Sometimes you just need a scapegoat. For the staffing industry, the applicant tracking system (ATS) seems to be taking on that role as recruiting challenges grow and results disappoint. Why aren’t we beating our competition to the talent?

It must be the ATS. Why aren’t our candidates being selected? It must be the ATS. Why aren’t candidates saying yes to the roles we offer? It has to be the ATS. Doesn’t it?

As a leader of your talent organization, it is your responsibility to select the technology that supports your business. The right infrastructure is particularly critical to that mission.

But how do you strategically pick new HR technology? How do you know what pitfalls to avoid? Was that ever part of your onboarding or training? We bet not.

So in this webinar, we’ll teach you how to sort the mess from the best and find the right HR technology for your company.
