Recruitment has long been at the forefront of the technology and digitalisation of HR. Over the last 10-15 years, many new recruitment technologies have been brought to market. I recall first using monster.com back in the mid-1990s. Since then, resourcing technology has moved on at a pace, with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) being standard practice today, with machine learning and AI-enabled processes helping to facilitate candidate selection and screening. We also have online psychometrics and interviewing, and now recruitment gaming solutions are becoming the norm.
Given the increased level of remote working and social distancing due to COVID-19, having a full end-to-end digital recruitment process that can be operated remotely is now an essential tool. In the case of internal recruitment, the same approach applies where onboarding becomes more in boarding where an employee moved to a new internal role.
Oracle has been at the forefront of this technology development, firstly with the acquisition of Taleo, a world-leading ATS, and now with Oracle Recruiting Cloud, which unified with Oracle Cloud HCM provides a high-end user experience from sourcing and attraction and recruitment through to onboarding. We are used to quickly becoming productive and participating in the organisation’s talent development processes.
So, with that in mind, I’ve put together the following 7 steps for HR professionals to consider when going fully remote on recruitment (whether driven by COVID-19 or longer-term changes):
Remote, recruiting and onboarding is a perfect fit with Oracle Cloud HCM. Oracle Recruiting Cloud puts the candidate experience front and centre, with designed usability around improving connection points and opportunities for communication. By employing social campaigns and leveraging hiring events to better connect with candidates, recruiters acquire a broader reach. Content personalisation and digital assistants help answer questions and provoke greater interest, leading to an increase in relevant job applications.
Oracle Recruiting Cloud redesigns recruiting as it should be: a single end-to-end process that ties proactive candidate marketing, prospect relationship building, and applicant evaluation into a continuous workflow with a seamless experience for your team, your data and your users. Rich media (videos and images) and job profile information amplifies the process and increases results and engagement.
All of this is possible on our All in One platform that simplifies administration and opens up new possibilities for a remote recruiting process powered by all of your talent data.
