In a tight hiring market, it’s important to do everything you can to get the right applicants in the door. But in order to convert top applicants into employees, you need to ensure that those folks receive a top-notch candidate experience. You want to keep the hiring process moving quickly and ensure that no critical information or tasks fall through the cracks. If top candidates are left waiting or they feel the process has been disjointed, they’ll move onto other opportunities.
That’s why we’re excited to announce inbox — a new feature designed to serve as mission control for hiring managers within the Hireology platform. Inbox keeps all communication in one place, centralizing everything you need to complete critical tasks quickly, respond to candidates in a timely manner, and provide the seamless hiring experience that today’s top job seekers expect.
You’ll see an envelope in the top right-hand corner within the platform which will display all of your new notifications, alerting you of new emails or text messages from candidates. Clicking on a message takes you to the part of the platform where you can take action. Once you’ve reviewed or finished the task, you can mark the notification as complete.
The benefits of inbox are endless. By centralizing every message in one place — rather than housing them within disparate systems like email or even different parts of the Hireology platform — you don’t have to worry about missing a candidate message or forgetting to complete a task. In essence, your inbox can serve as your to-do list. Plus, you can easily access your inbox no matter where you’re working within the platform, making it easy and intuitive to use.
For example, let’s say you’re hiring for three roles. For one of the roles you just sent an offer letter. For another, you’re working to schedule interviews. And for the final role, you’re still reviewing applications. Rather than having to manually check different parts of the platform to keep up with each of these roles, you can open your inbox panel to quickly respond to candidates — all from a single location.
The experience you provide candidates as they move through the hiring process gives them a glimpse into what it’s like working for you. If you fail to make that experience as smooth as possible for candidates, they’ll move on to competitors. And at a time when demand for top talent far outweighs supply, everything you do to provide an excellent first impression for top talent matters. At Hireology, we’re working hard to build the tools you need to do just that.
Inbox is coming soon to all Hireology customers. Contact us for beta if you’d like early access. And as always, check back on the blog for more product updates.
