Is Your Recruiting In A Hopeless Place?

Sometimes pop songs can remind you of a moment. A moment in time, an experience, a milestone, a job. The Rihanna hit “We Found Love” brought me back to my recruiting days at the temporary staffing desk. A typical week would involve interviewing and hiring thirty plus candidates, placing twenty of them, following up on the hundred placed else ware, and terminating a handful. Through the experience, I learned how to handle employees spitting on managers, sleeping in closets, failing drug tests, and stealing. Then, there was the paperwork! I would go through a ream of paper a week. From paper employment applications, WOTC forms, Forms I-9, W-4s, as well as testing and payroll; it never ended. Not to mention the countless hours I spent manually entering applicants into an HRIS (even though it wasn’t tied to payroll).

Thankfully, in the last ten years technological advancements have reduced the administrative burden and reams of paper. Applications can now be accepted online via an applicant tracking system that is also integrated with a payroll and HRIS system. With the right software, recruiters can now find love in a once hopeless place.
