Hiring is a fairly complex process, with many elements that go wrong. In their desire to speed up and automate the hiring process as much as possible, many employers opt for an applicant tracking system (ATS). Designed as a way to save time and resources on sorting large volumes of candidates, an ATS can truly be an HR manager’s dream come true.
However, what if your applicant tracking system is precisely the reason why you’re struggling with your hiring process?
There’s a range of ATS applications out there, each with a different set of properties and tools for hiring new talent. However, not all of them work equally well. Whether it takes too much time or money, it gives you the wrong candidates, puts off the right candidates or simply takes too much work, sometimes you and your applicant tracking system need to go on a break, Friends-style.
