Smart Candidate Screening with HireBee

The Benefits of Screening Candidates with AI

As the recruitment industry finds more and more creative ways to implement the advancements of AI and technology to the recruitment process, smart candidate screening powered by AI is HireBee’s contribution. The problems our solution addresses are numerous, and they don’t only have to do with time-saving, the solution also helps insert reliability and precision into the process.

AI Ranking and Smart Candidate Screening with HireBee

What exactly is smart candidate screening and how does it work? The premise is simple — the candidate profiles in your database are compared with your requirements for your jobs, and all the candidates assigned for each job are compared with each other to form a ranking indicating the best candidates in the system for each job. Now let’s explore the uses and benefits of smart candidate screening for facilitating your recruitment.

Increased Confidence Sourcing

Not all recruiters are specialized in sourcing for talent in a specific line of work, and understandably so. Although HireBee enables hiring collaboration, and recruiters can seek feedback from staff in the corresponding department to determine the top candidates, HireBee’s smart screening solution increases confidence sourcing by ensuring that the candidate’s skillset matches the vacancy. Making the candidate screening process fast and precise is exactly what most businesses need, as teams are able to move forward quick in such a fast-paced world, and the setbacks associated with making a bad hire are minimized.

DEI with Recruitment Software & Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)

A Diversified and Unbiased Recruitment

When leveraging HireBee’s easy-to-use functionalities, hiring teams have at their disposal exactly what they need for a diversified and unbiased recruitment process. As the AI differentiates the candidates solely on the basis of the data in their candidate profile, and teams can collaborate on hires on the platform through feedback forms which enable multi-level decision making, biases can be removed from the recruitment process. Through removing biases in your recruitment process, you’ll be promoting DEI (diversity, equity & inclusion) in your workplace, adding value to your team.

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.

Why You Should Use Recruitment Software in 2021

Recruitment software (or talent acquisition software) has increasingly become more popular as more and more people have realized its benefits. By the end of 2019, it was enumerated by Jobscan that 98.2% of the Fortune 500 companies use an applicant tracking system. Still, the practice isn’t as popular amongst smaller businesses, and a lot of this may be attributed to the fact that such businesses think that they have no need for such a system, perhaps due to the traditional association with such systems being exclusively catered towards big enterprises; sporadic and low-volume hiring; or simple unfamiliarity with or uninterest in the software. Today, we are here to make an argument for recruitment software by substantiating why you don’t need to think this way.

Why You Should No Longer Exclusively Associate Recruitment Software with Big Enterprises

Whilst it may not have been wrong to be under this assumption some time ago, when ATSs were a true novelty, and when cloud computing was underdeveloped, now, with cloud computing vastly improving, many new ATS vendors have appeared and offer scalable services for SMBs (small-to-medium businesses). In fact, many of the relatively modern recruitment software solutions explicitly target SMBs as their target market. Such ATS vendors include HireBee, Workable, Breezy HR, and many more. These vendors allow you to explore their free trial, which allows very limited job posting, so that you can empirically assess the features of the ATS, and understand whether this is an appropriate solution for your recruitment needs.

Why Sporadic and Low-Volume Hiring Shouldn’t Discourage You from Using Recruitment Software

The importance of HR shouldn’t be undermined, even in small businesses where the relationship within employees and between employers and employees may be more personalized and informal. Having an advanced and comprehensive recruitment strategy with the appropriate specialized tools will help ensure that you are capable of making the most optimal hiring decisions in a manner efficient for time and cost. Getting the right talent onboard can truly be invaluable for small businesses which use intrapreneurship to stimulate innovation, and delegate their staff to act more independently. 

Additionally, the amount of time saved by ATS due to their user interface being specialized for recruitment (unlike spreadsheets or other alternatives used to keep a database of resumes and candidates) and its many thoroughly designed features, which will only continue to become more optimal as the ATS market grows and becomes more competitive, can be leveraged by making urgent and hasty hires to realize temporary business opportunities, and simultaneously making the hire with sufficient data.

Why You Should Care

Well, now you may be thinking; okay, the ATS market has expanded and now its services are compatible with the needs of SMBs, but why should I care? Well, here’s why.

With recruitment software solutions, you can:

  • Have a centralized location for all things recruitment. With plentiful integrations and features, almost the entire recruitment process can be managed through the platform. Even if a specific ATS misses some functionality (which other ATSs may or may not have), you can request for this feature to be implemented.
  • In turn, have recruitment specialized data storage and data entry. With data storage specialized for recruitment, your talent pool can be kept in check and organized better, with information of candidates being easier to access with intuitive navigation through the database. Data entry specialization makes sourcing and manual insertions of candidates and other information about candidates easier.
  • Have searching, sorting and filtering capabilities, along with creating shortlists of candidates. The data inputted, or data parsed from the resume with resume parsers which the system may or may not have, can then be used to match the candidates’ data with your searches, filters and sorting fields. Additionally, you can screen candidates with knock-out questions, or have recommendations for the most qualified candidates according to the strength of matching of the required skills for the job and the candidates’ skills to weed out the irrelevant applications.
  • Maintain visibility of the entire recruitment process with data analytics & reports. Identify your best sources for candidates and assess your recruitment strategy with other interesting metrics. View your pipeline, with the number of applicants in each stage of the hiring process enumerated, to make sure no candidate is falling through the cracks.
  • Create workflows, complemented by email templates and triggers, to easily change status of applicants and keep them informed throughout the process with automated communication. Some ATS also offer integrated SMS communication.
  • Easily manage your job postings, with integrated job boards and social media postings. ATSs make job posting easy and faster with multi-posting.
  • Collaborate with your team with interview scorecards and feedback forms.

In conclusion, all of these benefits combine themselves to present you with a single key benefit for your organization: saving time and money on your investments into talent acquisition. Therefore, if it is in your agenda to invest into acquiring the best talent, it may be worth investing into recruitment software.
