Zoho Recruit in 2020 - Year in review

As 2020 comes to an end, it’s a good time for some retrospection. Every year typically has a few defining moments, but 2020 has been an enormous paradigm shift. The professional landscape across the globe has changed to adapt to a new environment, and the need for quality candidates is on the rise as the economy begins to recover. At Zoho Recruit we are so grateful for those who stuck by us during tough times and for the opportunities we’ve had to build more resilience for recruiters.

Let’s close out 2020 strong!

Here’s a quick look at some important milestones in our mission to transform the way hiring is done.


How did our customers use Zoho Recruit in 2020?

We started the year with a promise to provide an end-to-end recruitment system that could streamline your hiring needs. After another trip around the sun, we’ve curated our system to meet new hiring demands and challenges, and we’re thrilled to hear how much our customers have loved using Zoho Recruit.


Remote recruitment – The new normal

Working remotely is no longer just a novel idea. Virtual hiring has been a benefit for both recruiters and applicants. Recruiters can help organizations better by bringing in skilled candidates from any location, and job-seekers can pursue their dream job without relocating. To help you transition to #RemoteRecruitment easier, we’ve crafted a kit with all the resources you need.

Go beyond typical hiring methods searching for top talent. With one-way video interviews and live interviews, assess more candidates in less time.
