Store managers – they’ve got a lot on their plate. Often they’re juggling customer queries with keeping operations running smoothly, rolling up their sleeves and mucking in wherever needed. Finding 15mins to run to the back-office and log into a computer to find out who's coming in for an interview is a huge headache.
So when they need new staff, things should be as simple as possible – they should be able to check the interview schedule at a glance while they're on the move. They shouldn't have to wade through emails to get candidate info or submit feedback to HQ, and they should definitely be able to access the info they need on the device in their pocket - not just the one in the office.
These are the things we hear directly from Store Managers that make their lives easier and speed things up for your recruiting team back at head office.
We’ve heard the call, and we’ve delivered. Our new Manager’s App is a game-changer.
Say goodbye to forgotten stacks of CVs in back-office rooms or endless email back-and-forth. Their end of the recruitment process can be done all in the app, and link seamlessly to your recruitment portal.
Training? We'll provide it, but you won't need much. Managers can pick it up and start using it right away. And because they can use their own devices, it's already on a familiar screen.
The app can be used on any device. That means they can use it wherever works for them, on a device they’re already comfortable with – they can whip out their phone during quiet spells instead of leaving the floor or use the desktop in their back office.
Here’s how it works:
Each store manager is set up with a dashboard. This will give them a snapshot of what positions need to be filled and how candidates are tracking.
From here they’ll be able to:
• Track the progress of vacant positions
• See which job candidates have applied for
• See any special categories or access needs that apply to a candidate
The app gives store managers quick access to their calendar of interviews – who they’re meeting with, when and for what position.
Once the interview is done, they simply swipe right to let recruiters know whether they want to progress a candidate into the job, say 'thanks, but no thanks' or hold them for another role. Swipe, click, done.
A whizzbang new feature also lets the recruitment team add in the possible contract types to this stage. The manager choses the appropriate one, and hits go. That eliminates labour-intensive feedback rounds and contract admin – in a fully automated system, once the manager clicks 'progress', all the contracts, working rights signatures and induction processes trigger automatically.
Simple – get in touch with your customer manager, and they’ll give you a hand.
