A software application that began as a way to electronically handle recruitment needs but has since expanded to the entire employment life cycle. Onboarding, training and succession planning capabilities now exist, for example.
In recent times, there has been an uptake of cloud based systems that are used by human resources for talent management. They present an opportunity to save time and streamline many processes. With an applicant tracking system in place, the candidate experience has been made significantly easier and the recruiting process has become increasingly automated.
Job applications from qualified candidates can be picked up and swiftly moved through the tracking system for a hiring manager to make better informed decisions. These systems are capable of sifting the relevant data fields and presenting these to the manager to read through.
