New system allows videos to be embedded into requisitions
Kronos has released a new selection and hiring system, Workforce Acquisition 8.5 that can be used for both hourly and salaried hiring. The company claims that the system helps control costs, minimise the risk of making a bad hire, and improve productivity.
New requisition management tools help recruiters better manage the hiring process from sourcing to on-boarding. Kronos said that by using a set of pre-configured job templates, managers can create, monitor, and update salaried requisitions from a single portal.
According to the company, employer-specific branding, process checklists, and conditional forms, coupled with security and support for low-bandwidth locations, enable hiring managers to more efficiently process new hires. Employees and managers can access the system from any location, and self-service capabilities guide new hires and managers through the process to ensure complete and accurate data collection.
In addition, organisations can determine legal employment status on all potential new hires with E-Verify, a web-based system that compares employee information from Form I-9 with more than 449 million records in the Social Security Administration’s database and 80 million records in the Department of Homeland Security’s database. The system helps employers comply with state and federal labor laws and avoid penalties associated with unlawful hiring.
Kronos claimed that videos can now be embedded into requisitions, giving applicants a realistic job preview and ultimately reducing turnover.
Workforce Acquisition 8.5 introduces new assessment content using the latest techniques in assessment development with a focus on customer service for grocery and general supervisory skills. The goal of the new assessment content is to improve the overall applicant experience while identifying best-fit candidates.
