Finding great talent can be one of the toughest parts of running a small or midsized business. When you consider that unemployment is at a 17-year low and that job switching is at an all-time high, the task of recruiting top talent can look daunting.
Unlike large organizations that have many resources dedicated to hiring, small business owners are often handling it on their own, in addition to many other HR tasks. Recruiting can end up taking valuable time from business owners and hiring managers that could instead be used to boost sales, engage employees and help customers.
According to small business owners surveyed by ZipRecruiter® in 2017, 90 percent of respondents reported that candidate quality and availability are their biggest roadblocks when it comes to hiring.1 This is why I am excited to announce that we are teaming with ZipRecruiter to help our small business clients connect with the right candidates quickly.
It means best-in-class recruitment tools at their fingertips and quickly finding the right candidates for their company, regardless of industry. And most importantly, it means giving SMBs time back to focus on running and growing their business. With ZipRecruiter, 80 percent of employers who post a job get a quality candidate through the site within 24 hours.2
With one click, users can post a job to more than one hundred of the web’s leading job boards. ZipRecruiter then uses its smart matching technology to scan millions of active resumes and notify the most qualified candidates to apply. Not only does ZipRecruiter help quickly find the best people, but through its artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, it also learns over time to identify an employer’s highest quality prospects, reducing review time for hiring managers.
Running a small business isn’t easy, but we’re delighted to deliver the tools employers need to help their businesses grow and thrive.
