New SMS portal from eRecruitment

It is now possible to create SMS templates and communicate with candidates via SMS from Kala Technology's online eRecruitment system.

The SMS templates can be used to send reminders of interviews and to invite users and candidates for ad hoc meetings. The Mobile Portal lets you publish advertisements to a format that suits mobile phone screens. The advertisement can contain a link to a form where the candidate can leave their contact information and signal interest. Candidates can also text for instance 'job 123' to a given phone number and in turn receive an application form to directly apply for a position advertised in printed media.

Good News for e-Recruitment

The survey of 403 Personnel Today readers state that 46% of respondents have reduced their recruitment budgets since last year and the proportion of agency use verses in-house recruitment has fallen from 40/60 last year to 25/75 this year.

48% have reduced their spend on Recruitment Agencies whilst E-Recruitment technology has seen the biggest budget increase with 22% of respondents increasing their budget and 32% keeping investment in this area.

Why are Employers Increasing their use of E-Recruitment?

Employers are embracing technology to help reduce costs and improve diversity of recruitment & promote their employer brand.

86% of respondants said that online recruitment is the most cost effective method and more than 90% feel that online recruitment is easy to use.

66% felt E-Recruitment it helps with the diversity of recruitment.

Respondents are increasing the budget on employer branding and 89% feel that having a strong employer brand is even more important in a downturn.

How are Employers using Web-based Technology?

Although 87% felt they would not adopt video in the online erecruitment mix, nearly half (48%) said they were likely to use online testing within the next 3 years.

31% felt that they would use social networking, audio and video tools within the next 2 years

All this is really positive stuff for the online recruitment industry and highlights how quickly employers are becoming savvy in web-based recruitment.

Although there will always be a place for good recruiters and head hunters, those who can add real value to their service, I have to disagree with Kevin Green (Chief Exec of the REC). By the time the market picks up, I do think that employers will have learnt the skills and they will have the internal resources to sift through the market place for the best candidates!

This can be further reiterated by the growth of organisations like ourselves, designed to educate and implement effective online recruitment strategies, it can only get better and more cost effective for the employers!

To Blog or not to Blog, that is the question!

Yes we will probably get around to adding a Blog to our website.
