Time and time again technology has revolutionized the world around us. Now, with millennials in the driver’s seat demanding easy-to-use, mobile technology, these changes have inched their way into the hiring and onboarding process.
To adapt to this need for ever-changing technology, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms have started to pop up everywhere. Companies no longer have to purchase, build, and maintain costly IT ecosystems. SaaS solutions provide seamless integration capabilities, painless upgrades, and lower initial costs than anyone ever thought possible.
Why should you transition?
- Better data. The seamless integration and software integration of a complete SaaS platform means less chance of human error in data entry. For employers onboarding new employees at high volumes, this means that each new employee can input his/her information once, and have it copied accurately into all of your back end systems.
- Less waste. Just think of this as paperless paperwork. No more printed applications, emergency contact sheets, benefits forms— you get the picture. Instead, you would be able to keep all of your necessary paperwork completely digital. No need for countless file cabinets of old employee files anymore — everything stays organized and accessible within the system.
- Complete mobility. Whether it’s job boards, video interviews, online applications, or remote I-9 verification, mobility is the key to the heart of a 21st-century worker. With nearly 60% of all web traffic coming from mobile devices, employers who have not adopted mobile are losing out on valuable candidates. Furthermore, a single mobile-responsive portal that stores all necessary candidate information would make it easier than ever for candidates to interact with your company and get the data they need.
- On-demand service. Instant gratification is huge right now! Just “Google” anything you want to know from your smartphone – and you have an answer in seconds. But in the workplace, technologies and tools have not evolved as rapidly. Employees want to be able to use technology to solve problems on their own— they want to have access to their paystubs, to update their employment forms or to communicate with hiring managers online. Building this type of system on your own would take a lot of time and money. Integrating with a SaaS platform is a simpler way to keep employees engaged, for less.
