When you start out as a relatively small company, do you really have a dedicated resource for recruiting top talent for your organization? My guess is … probably not. A portion of your day is spent doing a plethora of other tasks. After your hectic day doing those other HR/benefit/payroll- related tasks, you probably find that a majority of your time is also spent speaking with candidates at night when it’s convenient for them (even when it may not always be convenient for you). You do the obligatory phone screens, take your detailed notes: then what? What do you do with them? If you are working for a small company, you might be using spreadsheets to keep track of everything. If you are lucky enough to know about database structure and have a resource at your company to assist you, maybe you’ve even gone the route of creating a database using a slick database program. But, every time you need to make a change to that database, you need to ask for external assistance. Now, you need to wait until it fits into their schedule to help you. Helpful, maybe so, but you eventually become frustrated; especially if you are used to being very self-sufficient at your HR, benefits, or payroll role. Sound familiar? Housing all of this information can be done in any number of ways, but what happens when you have the need to create reports after you’ve entered your data into those spreadsheets or other “applications”?
That’s a tough one for sure. How about if you have responsibility for providing data in support of Affirmative Action plans? Hmm, looks like your frustration level has just kicked it up a notch and your job got even tougher. How about if you need to create a report for an audit or external source that requests drilled-down data on your candidates? Harder … Tougher? Well, almost impossible; especially if you don’t have the skill or expertise in performing systemic data metric calculations or creating and formatting customized reports using your data. After all, you’re not really a system expert, so, what do you do now?
