The steps in a selection process at most organizations is incredibly disparate; online job candidates visit a career site to submit a resume only to have complete a separate application, recruiters send an email directing the candidate to pre-employment assessment on a different website, not to mention the traditionally disorganized process of coordinating interview scheduling and reference checking. Add to this that because of the disconnection in the process, it's often impossible for hiring managers and candidates to find status updates.
What your organization needs is a hiring management system. This technology builds bridges between the separate activities and stakeholders required to hire the best talent. It can also provide a new level of transparency into the selection process; something that is more and more in demand by both job seekers and talent leaders.
