Make Your Hiring Manager’s Job Easier

A HR (Human Resources) manager has one of the more complicated jobs in any office environment. The person in this position is often tasked with staffing the office and keeping track of benefits and programs for employees. In large offices, the HR manager may have an assistant or assistants helping him or her with this job, while in smaller businesses this is a one-person job. No matter how big or small the company, the HR Manager can use some help to get the job done right.

Luckily, there are many programs and tools available to a HR Manager that will make the job easier. There are simple programs and spreadsheets that nearly every company can utilize as well as more complex programs that may only apply to the largest firms. One of the most useful tools for an HR Manager is an ATS system. ATS, or applicant tracking system helps automate many of the recruiting tasks that an HR manager has on his or her plate.

What Does an ATS do?

While each of these programs is slightly different, the basic idea is that it collects data about potential employees, either through applicants or data mining efforts and spins it into an easy to read and understand format for the HR Manager.

In many cases, this system can take care of the process from beginning to end. This may mean that the system posts recruitment information and applicants can provide information directly to the system. After a set period of time, the system mines the information and provides it to the HR Manager.

What are the Benefits?

The main benefit for the HR manager is it saves him or her from sorting through endless resumes looking for the couple that may actually be valid candidates. Those candidates who are not qualified will never cause the HR manager any difficulty. This is very important when the HR manager is hiring for several positions at the same time. Without a doubt, it can make a big difference. According to the SearchCIO website, it’s estimated that around half of all medium sized businesses use these tools to streamline the hiring process for HR managers.

As you can see, there are many things that a HR manager needs to do to keep his or her company well-staffed and all employees happy. Utilizing tools, such as an ATS system, is one way to make the process easier and improves the process for everyone involved.
