The current pandemic situation has changed the working modality of organizations across all industries including the staffing industry. The word ‘remote’ has taken charge of most of the staffing functions from attracting candidates to onboarding employees to its management. While the concept of working remotely was existent well before the Covid-19 outbreak, channeling remote strategies into the hiring process itself has now become the new norm. If things work out smoothly, this practice is likely to be continued in the post Covid-19 world as well, changing the entire hiring landscape.
However, many of our recruiter friends are still having trouble adjusting to this new norm. To help them rejigger, we have gathered some of the staffing software features that the recruitment agencies can leverage in their remote/digital hiring process.
For the safety of the candidates and their own employees, organizations have switched from in-person interviews to video interviews in their hiring process. The availability of a myriad of software applications has enabled recruitment agencies to utilize the video call feature that these platforms offer. Applications like Zoom, Google Meet, and Skype are some of the trending tools that people use in their everyday lives – be it private or professional.

Remote hiring causes recruiters to run the risk of hiring candidates without proper verification of the information provided by them. In order to combat this risk, Aqore in partnership with several background screening companies like Asurint, PeopleG2, and Choice has provided its software users with a seamlessly integrated automated background screening feature. This allows for instant background checks on the candidate, shortening the onboarding process as well as removing the hassle of traditional search methods.

Aqore’s digital onboarding feature allows companies to seamlessly deploy customizable online onboarding and remote hiring tools that make the hiring process as easy as 1,2,3.
