Introducing Chilli Factor: Hot Recruitment Software

INTRODUCING CHILLI FACTOR
HOT RECRUITMENT SOFTWARE;
THE FASTER, SMARTER, MORE EFFICIENT WAY TO RECRUIT

19 August, 2014

For the vast majority of small to medium businesses (SMEs) recruitment is seen as a frustrating and costly necessary evil. Unfortunately this mind-set can lead to employers attempting to cut corners and costly poor hire decisions being made. This is often the case when there is lack of recruitment experience and understanding of the recruitment process.

If you choose to manage your recruitment in-house, using your inbox and spreadsheets, it doesn’t take long to realise the enormity of the task ahead, as you wade through hundreds of CV’s and cover letters, and try to keep track and manage all the applicants’ status and communicate which each of them individually. The alternative, if you are short of time/resource, is to contract the services of a recruitment consultant paying a contingency or placement fee of 10 - 17% upwards of the base salary, however for many SME’s the cost is not justifiable or affordable.

With over 16 years’ experience providing recruitment services and solutions to NZ businesses, Kirsten Clark - creator of Chilli Factor Recruitment Software, understands the frustration associated with attracting and acquiring staff. Chilli Factor Recruitment Software was born from a desire to help SME’s recruit smarter in-house. Developed over the past few years, this cloud based all-in-one recruitment management system is designed to help your business save time and money, while hiring right staff for the job.

Recognising recruitment is not a manager’s main job; the software is designed to efficiently reduce administrative tasks by up to 70%. Such as automatically capturing applications automatically into applicant database; filtering applications to review the ones that match your criteria first; automating timely responses to candidates; and cloning screening questionnaires to help select the right candidate. The workload can be easily shared through the software’s task manager system and the clear recruitment workflow helps everyone complete their assigned tasks in a professional timely manner. At the same time your employment brand is enhanced with an automated advertisement format and hosted online job board that is easy to promote via social networks and job boards.

Another clever feature of Chilli Factor is your ability to keep an ‘expressions of interest’ page online allowing interested parties to register their interest to work for you at any time, and letting you tag and build a talent pipeline of potential candidates ready to consider next time you recruit.

Chilli Factor Recruitment Software plans start at $49 per month, no set up costs, and can be activated and deactivated as required, while the 14-day free trial helps clients to see how simple and easy the system is to use at; http://chillifactor.co.nz/
