Are you getting the most out of your recruitment tools?

Talent Propeller is always working on updates to our recruitment tools, to help hiring managers implement their recruitment strategies. Are you up to speed with the latest features on offer? Here are some of our latest releases that are helping organisations all over Australasia to reinvent their recruitment process:

1.  Real Time Reporting

Our updated Reports tab now tracks your recruitment spend across ALL media, from print to online and social, matching it against your applications. How your candidates are finding you, what you’re spending on advertising and which media is working for you is critical return on investment data that HR Managers and Financial Controllers alike are loving.

The reporting also shows your average time to hire, allowing you to track how long it’s taking your organisation to fill vacancies.

2.    Integrated Requisition (Hiring Approval) Platform

Email chains between HR, managers and the CEO when you need approval to hire can get messy and tedious.

Last year, Talent Propeller launched a Pumphouse plug-in that allows you to systematically approve hires before advertising. Hiring requisition requests can be placed, approved and then turned into advertising bookings.  It's maximum convenience and transparency across all key players in your team, in a fraction of the time.

3.    Find C-Suite Level Professionals with Executive Insights by Talent Propeller

Our Shortlisters team are excited to release a new service to help Managers find and engage talent for higher level professional roles. As with all our Shortlisters packages, this service matches technology with human connection: your advertising, screening and shortlisting is handled by real people, all the while giving you full transparency to transcripts and commentary via your Talent Propeller portal.  

Executive Insights will give expensive recruitment agencies a run for their money when it comes to recruiting at mid management level and above.  Including personality profiling, interviews, headhunting and reference checks for a low fixed package price, this service helps you find leadership candidates and use the latest tools for an in-depth, 3 dimensional view of their potential for success.

4.    Use Video to Make Recruitment Ads 3x More Effective!

If a picture paints a thousand words, then a video can paint millions! As the world of digital evolves, trends towards video keep growing and video ads on social media are no exception.

An incredibly powerful tool, they are most effective when up to 1 minute in length and when they display a unique view of the role, your workplace or culture. Videos will play automatically in a targeted users news feed and can be a wonderful way to catch attention between text posts and static pictures.

Why use video?

  • Video viewers are 1.81x more likely to convert than non-video viewers
  • Social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined
  • 45% of people watch more than an hour of Facebook or YouTube videos a week

A video to promote your vacancy starts at $260+GST for a basic 30 second video ad, which includes a branded intro, moving slideshow of images, music, and voice over.

5.    IT and Programming Skills Tests - The Real Info. 

When it comes to highly technical roles in IT and Programming, you need to know if the person you're interviewing has the specific skill set for the role.

With our exclusive IT skills tests, we are able to offer tests that assess proficiency in Javascript, HTML, C++ and more.  IT is a unique space in that there’s a shortage of specific skills – but no shortage of applicants. 

From just $95, if you’re hiring IT talent, it's better to take the test than make a costly mistake. In addition, our aptitude tests help you understand their strengths and how they’ll respond to training, whilst personality tests establish their fit for the role and your team.

At Talent Propeller, we’re here to help you with as little, or as much of the recruitment process as you need. From applicant tracking to effective job ads, we are a genuine pick and mix solution, with real people, great recruitment technology and tools to make hiring easy.
