Google is well-known for the extensive range of software solutions it has created for businesses. But soon, workforce hiring tools will no longer be on that list. With the mega-company’s applicant tracking and candidate relationship management being decommissioned in 2020, your organization will need to explore alternatives to Google Hire. That can include looking for software with a similar feature set. It can also mean finding ways to further optimize your hiring process with additional features Google never offered. So, here’s a look at what’s on the table if you transition from Google Hire to Efficient Hire.
Every good hiring solution is built on the backbone of a solid applicant tracking system (ATS). Efficient Hire’s ATS is a streamlined, cloud-based system. It can post open positions to hundreds of job boards to attract your ideal candidates. This includes popular sites like Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, and state workforce agencies.
Candidates can complete their applications from any device, which is critical in the era of mobile for maximizing the number of qualified applicants. It also makes communication throughout the hiring process easy to ensure a good applicant experience and a seamless recruiting workflow.
You can rank candidates based on relevant criteria and assessed with custom pre-screening questions. Your recruiting team can also create reports to track many types of data including applicant metrics, job board performance, EEO compliance, and time to hire.
The obvious next step for qualified candidates is new hire onboarding. Efficient Hire designed its flagship solution to optimize this process and eliminate paperwork. For companies used to the virtual, paperless workflows made possible by Google’s suite of products, Efficient Onboarding is a natural next step.
This system also supports the completion and submission of all new hire forms. This includes tax forms, I-9s, and company or position-specific forms and policies. It also integrates with background screening for the pre-hire phase and payroll/pay cards for post-hire setup. In addition, the software enforces rules and best practices to ensure forms are completed accurately, e-signed properly, and stored securely.
Hiring Efficiency Beyond the ATS and Onboarding
Unlike many other alternatives to Google Hire, Efficient Hire provides optimization in a number of areas where businesses face ongoing compliance risks and lost profits.
- E-Verify: I-9 forms processed through Efficient Hire automatically go through the E-verify process to show good-faith compliance with federal law and immediately highlight any areas for concern.
- WOTC: Our Work Opportunity Tax Credit processing service identifies and captures millions of dollars per year. We work with businesses of all sizes to determine the tax credits owed for hiring job candidates from disadvantaged groups.
- ACA: Unlike the personal shared responsibility payment that was made obsolete in 2019, the penalty for employers who fail to offer adequate coverage is still in force. We help our clients document their compliance with the Affordable Care Act to reduce the risk of penalties and fines.
