What is HR Tech (HR Technology)?
HR technology is more than the hashtag on Twitter, #HRtech. If you have seen that floating around, you may have wondered what exactly it means. HR technology is a term that encompasses all online tools and software used for assistance with human resources processes. These processes include, but are not limited to, attracting, hiring, and retaining talent. In the place of paper filing systems and electronic databases, HR tech is used as a means to streamline and organize candidate and employee information.
Types of HR Tech:
HR technology, itself, is a broad term. So what does it include? Here are the main categories of HR tech:
- Essential HR Processes
- Payroll, benefits, wellness, time management, etc.
- Talent Management
- Data and Analytics
- API design, benchmark data, dashboards, etc.
- Company Growth
- Implementation and Transformation
- Diversity and Inclusion
Why Use HR Tech for Talent Acquisition:
Here at Recruitee, we put a strong emphasis on building great teams, together. Recruitee is an applicant tracking system (ATS) that streamlines and optimizes the hiring process. Applicant tracking systems are replacing the client relationship management (CRM) software that HR professionals and recruiters have attempted to use for hiring in the past. This new software is modernized and developed specifically for talent acquisition, leading to a much more user-friendly and efficient experience. HR tech is criticized for its possibility of taking the human element out of human resources, but that is not the case. There is only room for improvement in the recruitment process, and HR tech simply enhances the workflow by automating some processes and leaving the HR professionals, recruiters, or “humans” to still have control of the entire strategy and execution. Here are some reasons why HR tech is beneficial rather than detrimental to the recruitment field:
- Saves time and money
- Enhances collaboration between team members
- Provides sourcing tools for quick input of data
- Provides careers site editors in order to create an aesthetically-pleasing careers site, easily
- Customizes the hiring workflow
- Provides analytics for constant optimization of the hiring process
- Schedules and organizes interviews and candidate engagement
- Automates emails when necessary
- Posts to multiple job boards from one platform
