Changeworknow’s new recruitment system set to create a seismic shift in the online recruitment market

Changeworknow has launched a new ‘smarter’ version of its highly successful e recruitment and talent acquisition solution.

Built on a brand new platform, and using the most advanced technologies available, the system’s intelligent prioritisation capabilities enable recruiters and managers to easily and readily see which activities they need to focus on – drastically reducing administration and, consequently, the time to hire.

The system incorporates new generation features such as graphical interactive dashboards, tag cloud capability and extensive use of tooltip for the user interface, as well as all the features expected from a best-of-breed e recruitment solution: vacancy management, sophisticated candidate screening, full candidate management, response handling and tracking, on boarding and talent and succession management.

Already in use by two leading high street organisations, the solution maintains Changeworknow’s candidate-centric philosophy, significantly enhancing the overall applicant experience with an interactive candidate career portal for candidate relationship optimisation.

The system has already received great acclaim from HR users: “The system is easy to use and incorporates what can only be described as technical genius in much of its functionality – far superior among many of its competitors in the marketplace and, believe me, I have seen a few.”

The system includes functionality for the mobile environment, including the iPhone and handheld PDAs. It also offers a high degree of flexibility for users, allowing them to configure the system to suit the way they work.

Lisa Proctor, Changeworknow’s Sales and Marketing Director, explains: “The new system will create a seismic shift in the recruitment technology market. It is already revolutionising online recruitment for the organisations using it, who say that in just a matter of weeks it has reduced administration workload by 60%, on top of the average 40% reduction already achieved with the first version.”

Changeworknow has developed a solution that meets the needs of today’s multi-generational workforce by combining its ten years of experience in the online recruitment market with listening to customers’ current market needs, observing market trends and using some of the latest and most exciting technologies available.

Only 15 weeks to go til Christmas but the rush has started

Well from a recruitment perpsective it has anyway. September normally sees the start of the seasonal recruitment for most retailers. Our clients always seem to be ahead of the game here with some peak recruitment kicking off in August.

This week we have seen with a few clients a huge amount of activity with one high street retailer receiving almost 2,500 applications yesterday. How do we know? Well our new platform has some very sophisticated and dynamically produced reports which within a matter of seconds and at the touch of a button (literally!) gives information such as the image below.

This is management information that most organisations can only dream about. Maybe a few HR professionals should consider putting a meeting with Changeworknow on their list for thie Christmas?
