Employers with open positions can now review and rank candidates, message candidates and manage the process flow from a single dashboard.
AUSTIN, TX – August 6, 2015 – HotSchedules ®, a leading provider of mobile technology for the restaurant and hospitality industries, announces today, the addition of a candidate tracking system as part of its recruiting service. HotSchedules Recruit (formerly known as Jobsabi) is the talent sourcing solution that allows restaurants to find and hire top talent faster through referrals, which can improve time to hire by up to 34%. HotSchedules Recruit is also free for job seekers and restaurants to use, eliminating the need to spend thousands on job boards. HotSchedules Recruit is integrated with HotSchedules or can be used standalone.
The candidate tracking system allows employers to classify candidates as reviewed, unreviewed, hired or archived and creates a space for managers to collaborate, communicate and rate candidates, all from a single dashboard. Candidates are rated using a star-based system to show top candidates versus those who are less qualified for a particular position. Delivering the richest candidate profiles, including work history, employment validation, certifications, availability and personal branding, Recruit helps employers easily assess candidate quality. Candidates can also improve their chances of a higher ranking by securing referrals from team members that are already employed by the hiring company.
Recruit’s candidate tracking system also allows employers to connect with and message candidates, so that interviews can be scheduled or information can be exchanged. Candidates can be managed through the various hiring stages and will no longer appear in the candidate list once they are marked as hired or archived. The single dashboard view allows for quick assessment and management of the candidate landscape for all open positions.
Casey Clinkenbeard, Vice President, Product noted, “We recognized that when you have a number of candidates applying for open positions, you need a way to manage and rank them so you know who your top applicants are. The additional candidate tracking functionality in HotSchedules Recruit will help employers focus on those candidates that are best suited for the job.”
“One of the most important lessons I learned during my time operating and managing restaurants, was to ‘always be recruiting’ and the best way to do this is through referral programs,” said Donald Burns, founder & CEO of The Performance 7 Group, LLC, and also known as The Restaurant Coach™. Yet, even the best programs need a platform to receive and manage the valuable referral candidates that come in. I’m excited to see Recruit offer a candidate tracking system to further enable employers to focus on the best quality talent.”
