Thanks to new technology, many firms are able to receive a greater response to announcements of open positions than ever before. Adding staff in a quick manner is one of the most important things, especially for companies that are expanding at a rapid pace.
In one case, social media management company HootSuite saw its user base increase to 4 million just four years after its initial launch. As a result, it needed to add staffers at a quick space. However, one of its issues was that its human resources department wasn’t equipped to handle the flow of resumes, Forbes reports.
To help with operations, Hoodsuite began using The Resumator, a piece of software that makes it easier to organize information.
“Big companies have had access to powerful HR tools for the past twenty-five years," said Don Charlton, the HR firm's CEO, in an interview with the source. "Unfortunately, such enterprise solutions require a crushing amount of care and feeding and are inappropriate for small-to-medium sized companies. In addition, they do not suit the fast-paced hiring environments typically found at smaller companies."
While the unemployment rate has largely remained flat over the past few months, there are signs that a recovery could be around the corner. The 2012 Allied Workforce Mobility Survey revealed that two-thirds of human resources workers said their firms would be hiring before the year ended.
