HRTech News: MoBolt Unveils Mobile Recruitment Tools to Attract Top Talent from Referrals

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:

  • MoBolt Event app: Recruiters can capture candidate information either online or offline, upload it to their ATS or CRM system, rank candidates and send personalized email confirmations. The app drastically reduces the amount of time and effort that goes into capturing candidate data via paper resumes, emails or business cards at college or other recruiting events. The app also allows recruiters to generate a QR code that candidates can use to directly upload their resumes.
  • MoBolt Employee Referral and Notification app: Recruiters can now match a job opening with employees’ profiles and send group app notifications. For example, if a retail sales job opening is in San Francisco, a recruiter can send the notification message to all employees that have downloaded the app who are in a retail sales category for that location with a personalized message to refer friends for the job or to post on their social network. This puts the power in recruiters’ hands to generate more employee referral leads. In addition, it greatly reduces their manual work because the app tracks the source for each candidate right into the ATS.

“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.
