You’re constantly on the search for the right tools to help your team perform at their best. The only problem: they are set in their old ways. Sometimes, they weren’t trained sufficiently on the technology to really understand it well enough to use it regularly. What you want is a platform that’s easy to use, easy to understand, that gives you the analytics you need in order to make the department efficient. Enter then Candidate Sourcing Platform from Broadbean.

1. Lack of Reliable Data

In order to make a change in behavior among your recruitment team, to make strategic decisions, you need dependable information. Recently, in Walking the Tightrope of Big Data, I explained:

 

“While the gut instinct of recruiters and hiring managers to find the best candidate is invaluable, it can only be bettered with the integration of big data. This can become a problem, however, when there are millions of bits of information floating about in the company. The best solution is a system that can take the aggregated information and compile it into digestible pieces to show company insights. This adds a level of strategic complexity to hiring decisions and how those decisions impact the organization as a whole.”  

 

The CSP gives recruitment leaders access to viable data that they can use to make calculated adjustments to the recruitment process. Without the qualitative data, it’s difficult to make these changes effective. 

 

2. Lack of Transparency

Since the team doesn’t use your outward facing tools as much - or as in-depth - as they should, the department doesn’t have access to the data to assess how effective current recruitment strategies are. If this situation sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Currently, 60% of organizations are updating their talent sourcing strategy, with an added 27% considering modifying their current recruitment program. A tool like the Candidate Sourcing Platform gives you greater insight into current recruitment practices at your organization so leadership can make a more educated decision on the changes that should be made.

3. Increased Recruitment Spend

Businesses are dedicating more spend to recruitment efforts in an attempt to get an edge on the competition for talent, and the shortage of critical skills makes the drive for key talent even more prevalent. In the U.S. alone, organizations increased their talent acquisition spending by an average of 7% last year. Even with this expanded budget, you still want to use available resources wisely. Because the recruitment team doesn’t use tools to their full potential, there’s a greater risk of missing key candidates which can result in (unnecessarily) higher recruitment spend. CSP allows organizations to leverage their current talent pool more completely. 

 

4. Broken Recruitment Process

Well, not that your recruitment process is broken exactly. Even though you have a multitude of tools at your disposal, that the company has spent a good chunk of change on, the team doesn’t use them. They may only use the platforms to some capacity, but not to their full potential. Whether it’s the ease of the tool or the lack of sufficient training, the organization spent money on a tool your team doesn’t use. With CSP’s visual design and easy to understand dashboard, it’s nearly effortless to get everyone on board using the platform. CSP aggregates information from all of your sources so the team doesn’t have to waste time gathering the data… it’s already at your fingertips.
