How does mobile factor into your recruiting plan? Mobile continues to be a hot topic and recruiters are out there exploring all types of tools and products to help in this area. A lot of news coming out of Vegas on this front- including the latest from MoBolt;
MoBolt, a company that unlocks the power of mobile in talent acquisition, announced today the availability of two company-branded native apps, MoBolt Event and MoBolt Employee Referral and Notification. Both apps power companies’ efforts to track and monitor high-quality applicants collected via employee referrals and at college or recruiting events. The apps’ intuitive functionality is a game-changer for human resources teams and recruiters, as it enables them to use social networks to aggregate employee information and boost return on investment in recruiting efforts by reaching a larger pool of top talent.
Employee referral is the best source to find and hire quality talent, and, until now, has been the most underutilized. In large part, this is due to employers having non-intuitive processes thus giving employees little incentive to refer. When employees do refer, the process often involves navigating companies’ intranets to look up jobs and lengthy paper application forms. MoBolt’s Employee Referral solution provides a simple, quick-to-access and intuitive mobile-based referral option that allows employees to quickly access their social networks to notify friends to apply for a job. The candidates referred for the job will get an instant notification and can apply right from a mobile device by using their personal social network profile – all in less than a minute.
The MoBolt SaaS-based Event and Employee Referral and Notification native apps are the first in the human resources space to fully integrate into an organization’s applicant tracking system (ATS) or customer relationship management (CRM) system. Both apps also come with built-in responsive mobile platform experience.
Notable features for recruiters include:
“As more jobseekers turn to their mobile devices, companies that are not actively engaging this group could be missing out on high-quality candidates,” said Kshitij Jain, founder and CEO of MoBolt. “We’ve found that if companies can adopt mobile recruiting and even increase the employee referral-generated applications from the current average of 7 to 10 percent, it has potential to power almost 50 percent of companies’ overall hires.”
MoBolt’s Event and Employee Referral and Notification apps will be on display this week at booth 752 at the HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas.
MoBolt unlocks the power of mobile in talent acquisition for customers such as AT&T and Deloitte. Its leadership team – veterans of Monster, CareerBuilder, Microsoft, HP, Google and more – saw the mobile tsunami in recruitment coming. In response, MoBolt created a smart and simple mobile apply platform that works seamlessly with any applicant tracking system (ATS) worldwide. Employees can use social networks to match and refer friends to openings, and job seekers can apply from anywhere, in any language, and in only a minute. MoBolt is the first to eliminate the login process that traditionally turns off most applicants. For a one-stop shop for mobile recruiting needs, visit us at www.mobolt.com.
