ATS -Taking Control of Sourcing and Spending The BMJ experience
Pre ATS ●Process o HR involvement in recruitment largely admin based o Clunky paper based process o 40+ vacancies with many open for >6 months ●Lack of control o Over costs o Tracking/metrics/data or analysis available o Poor HR awareness of vacancies ●Digital o No use of social media for recruitment o Limited online recruitment
Post ATS ●Increased control o Over costs -centralised budget, year on year CPH reduced by 40%, annual spend on track to reduce by 45% with increased volume o Funding of internal recruitment specialist who engages managers and provides continuous improvement o Tracking/metrics/data or analysis available e.g. time to recruit, advert source and diversity monitoring o Total HR awareness of vacancies o Required engagement programme ●Digital o Use of social media for recruitment - LinkedIn, Twitter, Indeed (Facebook in pipeline) o Completely online recruitment - shocked to receive postal application!
Post ATS ●Process o HR fully involved o Far more automated -from authorisation through assessment, interview and offer stage o 10-15 vacancies with average time to recruit 4-6 weeks (depending on level of role)
