Tips for deploying new recruitment software

 

Advanced recruitment software can offer many benefits to your agency – including improved candidate and client relations, greater workflow automation and enhanced day-to-day productivity.

However, it’s important to note that there may be slight delays during the early stages of integration, as your employees adapt to the new recruitment software and begin to implement new processes and standards.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to streamline this process and make sure employees are maximising their use of the new software from day one.

Express the benefits 

Employees will be more likely to embrace and utilise new technology if they understand how it will benefit them and their organisation.

With that in mind, take the time to express to your employees why this software is being introduced. Explain how different modules will deliver productivity benefits and ensure the long-term success of the business.

Offer training and support 

Many employees will be more than willing to make use of a new piece of technology or software in the workplace – so long as they are given the proper training and support.

On-the-job training in this technology will ensure that employees understand how to use it effectively and accurately. Not only will they therefore be more likely to utilise the technology in the optimal manner, but they may also accept and begin to enjoy using the system more quickly.

In addition to this, having access to a support network will ensure employees know where to go if they need assistance or education about a particular module or element of the recruitment solution.

Lead from the front

Successful technology implementations require leadership. A committed and engaged manager can greatly streamline software deployments simply by acting as a role model and embracing the technology in a positive manner.

In larger organisations, it’s often a good idea to get line managers and department heads on board early, so they can feel confident in assisting their subordinates with the new technology when it comes time for deployment.
