Why Convergence is key to connecting with Candidates

As a team that sources and hires candidates for companies across the world, Resource Central has never lost sight of the fact that this is a ‘human’ service. Being able to engage and communicate with candidates (and clients!) is at the heart of what we do – and it’s why we use our own Net Promoter Score to gauge candidate satisfaction with the service we provide.

But (and it’s a big ‘But’), we’re passionate in our belief that technological innovation makes it possible to engage and communicate more deeply and widely than ever before.

To be more precise, it’s the convergence of RecruitmentTech, AdTech and HRTech that now makes it relatively easy to bring together the best practices across engagement, process management and candidate experience. And last week’s Forrester Wave Report highlighted the game-changing developments being driven by new-generation Talent Acquisition vendors – thought leaders who understand that today’s candidate attraction and management (not to mention talent pooling) needs to achieve both a ‘beautiful simplicity’ and something approaching a paradigm shift if organisations are going to win their war for talent.

Forrester’s report – which draws assessments from analysts, research associates, vendor response teams and customer references – gave particularly high scores to Jobvite in both the “Current Offering” and “Strategy” categories. And Jobvite certainly appears to have delivered the dual advantages of ‘beautiful simplicity’ and ‘paradigm shift’. Beyond calling the product suite a “clear leader with deep social tool functionality” Forrester stressed that “customers give Jobvite high marks for ease-of-use, satisfaction in product performance, implementation, sourcing candidates and providing metrics on sourcing solutions.” Praise indeed.

These scores are no accident. From its inception, Jobvite understood that the talent market needed a comprehensive recruiting solution, not just ‘another ATS’ tacked onto a traditional HR suite. From the very beginning, it sought to be an innovator – first on social, first on mobile job apply, first to deliver native video interviewing and first with a native CRM. Little wonder that in 2014 over 49 million people interacted with the Jobvite platform and over 11 million applications were submitted on customer career sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Marketo.

Jobvite is one example of how the future of both engagement and hiring is being shaped – and it’s this convergence of agile yet powerful technology, focused on delivering a ‘human’ user experience as well as maximum talent market penetration, that makes the future of recruitment so exciting for the team here at Resource Central.
