Recruitment AI and Automation with HireBee

AI and Automation in Recruitment

AI & automation in recruitment, just as in many other lines of work, have revolutionized the industry by boosting productivity and creating new opportunities for businesses, ultimately saving time and costs. So what can AI & automation in your recruitment do for you? Here are some of the recruitment processes you will be automating with HireBee.

Automated Candidate Communication

It reflects poorly on your candidate experience if you’re not keeping your candidates informed throughout their application process, but it may also seem too time consuming to update every single candidate with their progress. With HireBee’s custom workflows, email templates and email integration, your applicants are automatically updated with their progress as they move along the pipeline.

Here is how this works. You create customized workflows, which include your hiring stages, and email templates for when candidates are moved through these stages. As you review your candidates from our platform and move candidates through the process, you trigger the automated mail upon changing the status of your applicant. 

Manual candidate communication is also made easier and faster, as you can email candidates through the platform, directly through their candidate profile. Human Capital Institute claims that lack of response from employers is the number one cause of a negative candidate experience, with 60% of candidates never hearing back from employers after an interview; an unnecessary mistake which hurts your employer brand. HireBee makes your candidates happier and maintains the integrity of your employer brand, all while saving time and money.

AI Powered Candidate Screening

HireBee uses AI to give users a ranking on their candidates. The ranking indicates who the best fits for the posted job are. Recruiters can use this tool to manage and review their candidates in order of best fit, to introduce priorities to your recruitment. 

Also, as job application has increasingly become easier, many job-seekers may apply to multiple jobs without properly looking through the job description and the qualifications required, to submit a large amount of applications. Depending on your sources, this may result in the reception of irrelevant applications. HireBee’s AI powered candidate screening helps weed out the irrelevant applications and enables you to hire with focus. 

Candidate Management

HireBee’s features for sorting, filtering and searching through your centralized database of candidates facilitate the reviewing process. With HireBee’s purpose-built database, you’ll find that reviewing candidates and moving them through the process is super easy. Bulk-action, previews and extensive candidate profiles with storage of everything about the candidate make HireBee the optimal platform for candidate management.

Besides its ease-of-use, the platform ensures that the interface is pleasant to look at. The interface doesn’t intimidate the user with an overwhelming cluster of data to read through. Instead,  it makes the experience more pleasant with a vibrant aesthetic, photo profiles of the candidates, and clearly formatted information.

Enjoy other Automation Features

Outlining all automation features in HireBee would require the mention of every feature, since one of HireBee’s core purposes is to ease the amount of manual work which has to be done by recruiters, and virtually every function within HireBee contributes to this purpose. So we instead listed the automation tools which are built specifically for automation purposes.

How your Small Business Can Win Hiring without an HR Team

HR departments are critical for small businesses with growth ambitions in the long-term. However, small businesses might not have HR departments due to low growth ambitions and low employment. Regardless, not having an HR department shouldn’t hold you back from making the right hires. Here is how your small business can win hiring without an HR team.

Interestingly, making the right hires can be most important when the company is in its earlier growth stages, as wasting money and time on unsuccessful hires can really hamper business growth and set the company a few steps back. So how can small businesses without an HR department get out of this predicament? When there is no HR department yet making the right hires is extremely important? We believe the answer to this is automation and team collaboration!

How Automated Hiring Helps

It is estimated that 70% of small businesses in the US handle HR functions with unspecialized staff members. This is done alongside their main core responsibilities when necessary. These tasks can make up up to 13 hours a week for these businesses, and distract staff members from their core responsibilities. Usually it is the small business owners or administrative staff that take up these responsibilities.

What’s worse than having less time for your core responsibilities because of your peripheral responsibilities? Taking too much time on your peripheral responsibilities! Small businesses usually hire HR personnel when they realize they cannot handle HR functions with unspecialized employees anymore. Well, AI & automation can make recruitment before the introduction of an HR department a lot less straining than it is, and save you a boatload of time!

Tasks like candidate communication, candidate screening, reporting & analytics, filtering/searching and candidate profile creation & storage can all be made easier with recruitment software like HireBee. And the ease at which they can be implemented make it user-friendly for all users.

How a Collaborative Recruitment Platform Helps

However amazing automated hiring is, at the end of the day, it is the human responsible for the decision-making. Simplifying and shortening the hiring process doesn’t necessarily mean making the right hires. Missing an HR department can translate to a flimsy decision-making process, with personal biases present and organizational fits not realized. 

This is why it may be a good idea to get some of the team involved, instead of delegating all responsibilities to yourself or another staff member not specialized for HR. Encourage other staff members to give their feedback on certain candidates. With a decision-making process based on multi-level feedback, you’ll be eliminating personal biases in your hiring and realizing more organizational fits with less pressure on sole individuals!

Sharing candidate profiles, leaving feedback on candidates with feedback forms, a specialized interface which makes the candidate database (that’s right, no spreadsheets) easily accessible and navigitable, in-house team communication and assigning user roles and permissions are some of the features which make team collaboration with HireBee super cosy and robust. Candidate profiles make it extremely easy to access relevant information and enable team collaboration on a case-by-case basis!

All in all, small businesses without an HR department will need to leverage technology for their hiring to ease the pressure on unspecialized staff, with automation and team collaboration being the key to success. And HireBee can enable just that, and ensure that your team stays winning on all fronts!
