Indeed, the world’s top job recruitment site, on Tuesday (March 9) launched a new platform that aims to streamline the hiring process.
The company announced the launch of Indeed Hiring Platform allows employers to manage the hiring process—from posting through interview—directly through Indeed without the use of additional software.
Through the Indeed Hiring Platform, recruitment will be automated with a speedier review of resumes and the inclusion of video interviewing technology that helps in reducing hiring time from weeks to days.
Using the new platform, employers can reach 80% of US job seekers through the combined networks of Indeed and its sister company Glassdoor.
Employers can also automate the process of sourcing, screening, and scheduling interviews with quality candidates into Indeed’s video interviewing technology called Indeed Interview.
As the coronavirus pandemic changed the course of the hiring process, the company launched Indeed Interview to facilitate remote hiring as restrictions made it difficult to conduct face-to-face interviews.
As many countries have slowly opened up their economies and the arrival of Covid-19 vaccines, Indeed expects a deluge of jobseekers using the new hiring platform particularly those coming from the hospitality, retail, and food industries.
“At Indeed, our mission is to help people get jobs, and this past year that mission has been more vital than ever,” said Chris Hyams, CEO of Indeed.
“In response to the pandemic, last year we launched Indeed Interview to make it safe and effective for job seekers to interview over video. Now we’ve connected the dots from job search directly to interview, making hiring simpler, faster, and more human. Our vision is to make getting a job as easy as pushing a button, and Indeed Hiring Platform gets us one step closer,” Hyams said.
The Indeed Hiring Platform also aims to help employers quickly ramp up hiring by simplifying processes by giving jobseekers to join interviews directly through the platform.
Since employers are able to spend less time on manual tasks, they have more time to engage with quality candidates the company statement added.
“The direct connections enabled by this hiring solution addresses real problems for job seekers and employers,” said Maggie Hulce, Senior Vice-President at Indeed.
“We eliminate administrative tasks, like reading resumes and scheduling interviews, that slow the hiring process for employers. We also give job seekers a direct path to showcase their skills and qualifications to recruiters and hiring managers,” she said.
By using the Indeed Hiring Platform, job seekers who meet the criteria can immediately progress to an interview, providing much-needed transparency in the application process. More than 200,000 job seekers have already connected with employers on the Indeed Hiring Platform.
“When you have to rapidly grow or rebuild your workforce, the traditional approaches for sourcing candidates, reviewing resumes, and manually scheduling interviews to feel painfully slow,” said Hulce.
“It’s a better experience for both the job seeker and employer if you automate the steps that lead to the interview so the human connections needed to make hires happen faster.”
