An ATS can be an integral part of hiring right, but only when it is handled in such a way that it integrates with a stable, standard recruiting process.
Recruiters can do so much to remove applicant fear and ensure not only the BEST talent is seeking jobs but the RIGHT talent is finding them.
The final step in building a standard stable recruiting function is onboarding. The onboarding strategy should address the experience and the transactional.
When building a standard stable recruiting function, the process does not end with the job offer. You must have a comprehensive preboarding process, too.
As you create and approve an offer for a candidate, remember to move quickly, communicate often, and keep it human, even as you rely on your ATS to do the heavy lifting.
