Happy employees are more productive. Implement some of these perks and see your workforce morale soar.
Great article filled with practical advice that highlights the “theory of quarters” when it comes to recruiting & hiring.
“For starters, if you’re not using an applicant tracking system, you should be. ‘Studies have shown that you can actually improve your efficiency by at least 50% through an applicant tracking system.’ And there are plenty to choose from. Find whichever one works best for your hiring needs. The point is that once you have this software in place, you’ll also have a data layer for your recruiting efforts.” ~ Eric Feng, Flipboard CTO
There’s no doubt that the Screening Questions module is one of the most powerful features contained in the Hirebridge platform.
Did you know that each job can contain its own screening questions, which allows you to deeply profile your candidates regarding their qualifications based on the position they’re apply for. You can tag specific responses as qualifiers and dis-qualifiers, as well as assign point values to each response.
This module provides you with a powerful “virtual assistant” that helps you segment out candidates that meet your minimum criteria, as well as being able to weight those that are most qualified.
If you’re not leveraging the power of the Question Sets module, or need any help setting them up, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to assist.

Deloitte just released its Human Capital Trends 2013, a year-long research effort which looks at talent and leadership trends around the world.
The research explains why talent and leadership gaps have become the top business challenge this year. We are now in a world of uneven economic growth with lagging skills and the need to build new leaders in many countries around the world.
One the most common and frequent challenges we hear from recruiters is getting managers to review candidates and provide feedback to them. Often times, there is a breakdown in communication during this process, which becomes an obstacle to everyone involved.
We’ve been hard at work studying how to address this need from every potential angle, and to devise a solution that “feels” and “acts” natural — something that recruiters and managers alike will embrace to help them be more productive and reduce their workloads.
We call it, Closed-Loop, Frictionless Feedback.
It’s really quite simple in its approach, yet incredibly powerful, flexible and complex in its abilities. The key benefits are as follows:
- Natural process that takes little to no training
- Recipient does not need to log in to provide feedback
- Feedback can be collected from single or multiple recipients
- Point values can be assigned to specific responses
- Specific responses can be tagged as qualifiers and dis-qualifiers
- All activities are logged at the user and candidate level
- Ability to automatically disposition candidates based on specified criteria
- Comprehensive reporting and compliance tracking
We’re excited to help every company and organization leverage this incredible and unique component to streamline their recruiting process, so send an email to email@example.com and we will provide you with complete details.
Tell us something we don’t already know!
Marshall Kilpatric’s addresses one of the hottest sectors of the software industry, namely, Talent Management. Hirebridge has been in this space for more than a decade and we’ve experienced explosive growth over the past 2-3 years, so we know just how hot it truly is.
Here’s an excellent quote from the article:
“We don’t have the right skills in the open market to fill the available jobs. The War for Skills is even more deadly than a war for talent because the only place to get the skills is from the competition. We now, more than ever, need to know what we have from a talent standpoint, what our competitors have, what we need and what it will cost to get it. The Knowledge Economy has finally caught up to the Manufacturing Economy in the need for Supply Chain Intelligence, just not of parts but of people and skills.” ~ Jason Averbook, CEO of Knowledge Infusion
