Hiring Made Easy
Software from companies like ADP allows human resources directors and managers to focus on strategic growth instead of implementing reactive policies.
The last thing human resources staff want to spend their precious time on is tracking where job applicants are in the hiring process. After all, finding top talent is hard enough. Since 2005, ADP has offered and continued to update its software that helps HR directors and managers automate company hiring. “We’re eliminating the manual entry, and we’re automating those back office processes,” says Cheryl Bartkoski, ADP’s district manager for southwest Missouri, where the company has about 200 clients.
Recruiting and onboarding tools within ADP’s HR module allow for applicant tracking, automatic emailing, storing and creating welcome packages with company documents and starting a new hire’s personnel file. For staff already on payroll, the analytics and benchmarking tools also come in handy. “You get up-to-date, easily accessible data that reveals critical, actionable workforce and business insights,” Bartkoski says. “This information is really being used to ‘predict’ turnover based on employees approaching retirement age… average attrition rate and high levels of absences.”
Overall Bartkoski says the hope is that these tools keep HR directors from reacting to problems as they arise. “Our goal is to help relieve a little bit of the tactical or administrative duties of that position and help them focus more on strategic growth of an organization,” she says.
