From faxing over candidate profiles to instantly sharing data over the internet, information exchange has evolved drastically over time. As communication and data sharing have become easier and more accessible, recruiters have started shifting from traditional hiring models toward more collaborative methods.
Implementing such a system might seem risky. There are many recruitment and HR requirements that need to be addressed, and redesigning your entire hiring process around them isn’t easy.
This is where recruiters need to think outside the box. Today’s technology is so advanced and easy to understand that there’s a software solution for every business requirement, and more are on their way. So instead of changing the way you hire, try supplementing your existing system with software services to increase efficiency.
One such example would be Slack, a solution that brings all your communication channels together.
Slack does an incredible job of keeping your information organized and accessible with the use of well-marked communication channels and slash commands that let you look up information without leaving the application.
As easy as it is to share information on Slack, it’s also highly secure. This is crucial for recruiters as candidate profiles are sensitive data and should be transferred over secure communication channels. With Slack’s best-in-class security features, you can rest assured knowing that your data is safe.
