In his recent article for Forbes, “The War for Tech Talent,” AppDirect CEO Daniel Saks explores the challenges recruiting professionals face when trying to hire top talent. In today’s competitive environment, finding the right skill set isn’t enough; to promote growth and profit, you need to make sure new employees are well aligned with the company’s culture and values. The “war for talent” requires the best tools, a need that most recruiting solution simply doesn’t meet.
These are the exact pain points the folks at Simplicant set out to address. “We were consistently disappointed by traditional recruiting methods and technologies,” explains Sajjad Masud, CEO at Simplicant. “We found the overall sourcing and hiring processes extremely inefficient, ineffective, and mostly cost prohibitive. Traditional job boards don’t take into account that recruiting is a rapidly evolving field, greatly influenced by changing economic trends and the paradigm shift caused by social media. This led us to build a system that elegantly addresses the most critical recruiting needs of today's growing businesses.”
Simplicant’s cloud-based platform takes you beyond traditional recruiting into the realm of “social recruiting” and talent engagement, where you can target and engage the best candidates like never before. Its powerful applicant tracking system streamlines the entire recruiting process from job creation and publishing, to candidate interviews and hires. With its innovative social media integration, Simplicant connects you with applicants on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more.
“Harnessing the power of social media is essential for successful referral-based hiring,” Sajjad advises. “In order to do this effectively, organizations need an easy-to-navigate solution that streamlines the strenuous task of sourcing, screening, and social recruiting. That is why we pay special attention to usability and to building a deep understanding both the employer and candidate perspectives.”
