Digital HRMS is the Solution to the Challenges of Recruiting New Talent in Times of Remote Work

The Covid-19 pandemic has had severe impact on businesses across the globe, with businesses forced to change their way of operation to deal with the crisis. Today, a large section of the global workforce is working remotely from their homes, because of the need to practice social distancing in order to keep themselves safe and contain the spread of the deadly virus. Thankfully, today we have the technology that helps businesses switch to remote work without any impact on the employee productivity and coordination within the team and with the clients.

However, a big challenge for Enterprises today is the fact that many systems and processes in an organisation are designed to work under "normal" circumstances, and these systems are posing as a challenge in the times of remote work. Recruitment is one of these processes that is designed around in-person interactions and hence, traditional or conventional recruitment systems cannot cater to the changing needs of the current situation that has been brought forth because of the pandemic.

Recruitment Challenges During Remote Work

When the entire workforce is working remotely, recruitment can be a challenge, and the key challenges are given below:

  • Coordinating with the stakeholders regarding the different stages of the interview process
  • Tracking the status of each candidate who is shortlisted for multiple rounds of interview
  • Relying on virtual interaction technology to select the candidates
  • Time consuming process of scanning the resumes of the candidates
  • Efficient management of the entire recruitment process
