It takes an average of 42 days to fill an open position. That’s a long time.
Even if you get off to a good start on your end, hiring someone new involves a lot of moving parts – not all of which are within your control.
Often, the expectation of a smooth hiring process comes crashing against the reality of aligning schedules. Back-and-forth emails. Exchanging possible dates and times. Asking questions and awaiting response.
Businesses are hiring for a reason – to bring someone in who is going to drive them forward. Especially in industries like Financial Services and Professional Services, new hires can be crucial to success.
Any delay in filling those positions can have real operational and financial consequences. That’s why businesses are turning to self-scheduling.
What is self-scheduling software?
Organizations use automated scheduling software to intelligently automate their recruitment process, by empowering candidates to self-schedule interviews, assessment days, and training.
Self-scheduling app allows candidates to arrange interviews online from company websites, social media pages, and staff emails, via a simple online booking flow. Self-scheduling calendar syncs with company calendars, so interview slots are pulled from the live availability of the relevant staff.
That means there’s no need to gather availability from multiple people around the company. Self-scheduling software allows you to ditch those never-ending email chains that drain so much time and patience.
