Text Messaging Streamlines Candidate Communication Throughout the Hiring Process, Speeding Up Time to Hire

Hireology is excited to announce an SMS solution to streamline communication with candidates during the hiring process. Using text messaging, Hireology customers can keep candidates engaged throughout the hiring process, speed up time to hire and decrease interview no-show rates.

With SMS, hiring managers can ensure critical communication isn’t overlooked by candidates during the hiring process – which is often the case with email. Candidates want convenient ways to communicate with employers – nearly 90 percent of people agree that it would be beneficial to receive text messages during the job application process. Using Hireology’s SMS solution, Hireology customers have seen total time to hire decrease by three days and interview no-show rates decrease by 20 percent.

“At Hireology, we continuously add new capabilities to our platform to make our customers’ lives easier and help them build great teams,” said Adam Robinson, Co-Founder and CEO of Hireology. “Text messaging not only helps speed up the hiring process – ultimately leading to increased productivity and profitability – but it supports an engaging candidate experience, keeping top talent excited about joining your team.”  

With Hireology’s SMS solution, hiring managers can send text messages directly from the Hireology platform – enabling communications to be tracked without the hiring manager needing to use a personal phone number. The solution streamlines candidate and new hire communications in the following ways:

  • Create and Save Templates: Save time and ensure professional text messages are sent every time with available templates, or create and save your own.
  • Reconnect with Candidates: Share new open roles with past candidates.
  • Schedule Interviews: Send initial confirmations and reminders for upcoming interviews, and easily reschedule interviews if necessary.
  • Send Reminders: Ensure the completion of hiring steps and onboarding tasks with simple text reminders.

The SMS solution is now available to all Hireology customers and is included in the base subscription price. For more information on how Hireology can help you build your best team, visit www.hireology.com.
