ROSELAND, N.J., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, today announced the launch of ADP Recruiting Management, a unified next-generation platform that helps clients better manage the end-to-end talent acquisition process by engaging social and mobile users, enabling intelligent sourcing of candidates, and increasing collaboration.
ADP's new solution offers companies and applicants tools aligned with today's changing recruitment landscape – including mobile and social media capabilities. Used together, these tools from ADP help organizations source, attract and manage critical talent throughout the talent acquisition lifecycle.
"Recruiters today typically work with multiple vendors to source and interact with active and passive candidates, screen and assess their suitability, and move them through the hiring and onboarding process," said Tony Marzulli, vice president of product management at ADP Talent Management Solutions. "This frustrating hodge-podge of solutions from different vendors can yield less-than-ideal results. Using ADP Recruiting Management, companies now can successfully expand their pools of passive and active talent by opening their recruiting process to mobile users and tapping into major social media networks."
One such company that already has turned to ADP is Direct General Corporation®, a financial services holding company with 1,800 employees across 420 offices in 13 states in the United States.
"Working with our former vendor was challenging, and we found our HR managers were spending 90 percent of their time troubleshooting the system versus sourcing, working with candidates, and filling jobs," said Bill Smith, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Direct General. "We knew that our next-generation system needed to support both our corporate and field hiring processes to benefit the company, and embrace mobile technology and social networks to attract top candidates."
Building on its existing relationship with ADP, Direct General turned to ADP Recruiting Management to help bring a more modern and connected approach to its management of the end-to-end recruiting process – critical for a company that needs to keep its talent pipeline full since some offices have as few as two people working there.
"Strategically, we need to be an employer of choice, and a new hire needs to feel like he or she made a great career decision to join Direct General," said Smith. "This isn't just about an HR process. This is about managing the reputation of our company. We wanted to deliver a fresh, modern candidate experience. With ADP, we have the tools, insight and expertise to deliver a fresh, modern and best-in-class experience."
Reimagining the Recruiting Process
Recent studies show that a new generation of employees with changing expectations has emerged. Candidates have increased their demands for a hiring process that is more transparent, interactive and consistent. They are seeking "experiences" over "transactions," and increasingly expect to interact through mobile and social channels. Employers, in turn, are attempting to meet these demands with more strategic employment branding and marketing initiatives using a greater variety of interactive communication channels.
Against this backdrop of rapid change, employers are seeking integrated solutions to identify and secure the right talent quickly.
"The recruiting landscape is changing at a staggering pace, requiring recruiters to extend their skill sets to include branding, marketing and building relationships with passive and active candidates," said Lisa Rowan, Research Vice President for HR and Talent Management Services at International Data Corp. (IDC). "Recruiters are quickly realizing they need to stay relevant by deploying a unified platform that is mobile-enabled and engaging for social users. ADP Recruiting Management can meet this need by helping recruiters deliver the talent they need to drive business success."
Consider the following from a recent study by the ADP Research Institute®**:
- Companies with more than 1,000 employees said they anticipate hiring to increase 34 percent in 2014.
- Only three percent of companies with more than 1,000 employees said their end-to-end recruiting processes were excellent.
- When respondents were asked, "What would a better designed talent-acquisition process include," "improved integration" was mentioned three times more frequently than the next-highest rated category.
- Some 32 percent of companies with more than 1,000 employees have seen a year-over-year improvement in the impact of social and mobile recruiting tools.
