Find out how our Talent Acquisition tools transform businesses

Much more than just an organization’s hiring process, talent acquisition encompasses all the strategies, processes and systems a business uses for recruiting, hiring, onboarding and even retaining employees. The concept of talent acquisition looks forward, projecting the career path of potential employees against the needs of the organization to find and develop future leaders to help achieve long-term strategic goals.

Paycom’s Talent Acquisition tools reinforce your compliance strategy by combining a single database of record with precise automation and employee data managed by the employees themselves.

These HR hiring software tools make it easy to stay on top of deadlines, meet record-keeping requirements and help comply with responsibilities surrounding:

  • Form I-9 documentation
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulations
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) laws
  • immigration and visa requirements

With easy-to-retrieve documentation and the accuracy of employee-entered data, you’ll be able to mitigate compliance risk and satisfy the demands of employment-related audits.

Our employee hiring software tools differ from other solutions thanks to the efficient, accurate performance that comes from working seamlessly within Paycom’s single software.

Before posting a new opening, position attributes can be automatically assigned to each job, improving the applicant experience and helping satisfy your compliance requirements. Open positions automatically post to top job boards to reach the largest possible audience. When you’ve caught the attention of top talent, they’ll apply directly through our software.

You’ll follow candidates through a single dashboard as you manage interviews, pre-employment screenings and more. When you’ve made the decision to hire, the candidate’s personal data automatically flows through Paycom’s single software, eliminating data reentry.

Mobile-friendly self-onboarding helps your new hires get started faster as you digitally assign forms, training and checklists for them to complete before Day 1.

From that initial job posting and all the way through the employment life cycle, Paycom’s single software also provides a single conduit for communication that connects recruiters, HR, managers, leadership and employees. With a clear path that facilitates communication, organizations can more nimbly and effectively address their HR needs.

With Paycom’s Talent Acquisition tools, your HR team more effectively identifies and engages the talent you need as they spend less time rekeying information and onboarding new employees. You’ll hire confidently and effectively with reductions in time-to-fill for open positions and ramp-up time for new hires, all while freeing your HR department to pursue high-level strategic goals.

Talent acquisition software with an applicant tracking system automates recruiting tasks so HR pros and hiring managers can focus on finding the right candidate. While this software varies in complexity and features, common components include:

  • the ability to post jobs on multiple career sites
  • interview support such as a scheduling tool, notes from each candidate stage, and questions or script assignments for interviewers
  • automated candidate communications and task assignments based on preconfigured workflows
  • candidate profiles, including referral sources, resumes, application responses, notes, interview feedback, correspondence and hiring stage history
  • offer letters and electronic document signatures
  • background checks

Talent acquisition is the process of identifying, reaching and ultimately “acquiring” employees who have the knowledge, skills, values, motivations and abilities to meet an organization’s needs. Talent acquisition software streamlines the process, resulting in greater agility and faster results. Without effective software, organizations may need to rely on antiquated, time-consuming processes prone to human error.

Talent acquisition is the larger concept that encompasses strategy, planning, budgeting and the overall approach to meeting an organization’s human capital needs. Recruiting is a vital component of talent acquisition and includes all activities associated with filling open positions.

Recruiters may be required to meet new-hire targets to earn their variable compensation or even keep their jobs. They need to know how many open positions remain at any given point, and they are held accountable for metrics like “time to fill open positions” and “cost per hire.” Talent acquisition solutions like applicant tracking systems (ATS) allow recruiters to track and report on these outcomes.

Carefully consider the needs of your organization when selecting recruitment software. Businesses with tech-fluent workforces will have different needs than those that don’t. Whatever software you implement, communication is key.

HR professionals can take these steps to implement recruiting software smoothly:

  • Communicate how the current process will change, including clear timelines, individual responsibilities and expectations in each phase of implementation.
  • Train employees who will use the new software. Some teams may require more training than others.
  • Provide resources. This may include videos, a library of resources or links to the software’s help desk.
  • Make a cutoff date and communicate it widely to make it clear when the old process will be turned off and the new process will begin. It’s important that people know exactly when they will lose access to previous systems and/or when an old process is no longer valid.
  • Check in! It’s important to seek feedback and make changes when employees raise valid concerns or suggestions. Send anonymous surveys, conduct one-on-one conversations, give follow-up trainings and encourage feedback from HR and recruiting reps.
