ApplicantStack Achieves Gold Partnership Status with Indeed

ApplicantStack Achieves Gold Partnership Status with Indeed

We’re excited to announce our inclusion in Indeed’s ATS Partner Program as a Gold Partner. We work closely with Indeed to build reliable integrations, optimizing hiring processes for countless businesses across all industries.

ApplicantStack + Indeed Integration

Indeed is the top-ranked job site in the world, drawing more than 350 million unique visitors on a monthly basis. The goal of the site is to put jobseekers first, offering access to open roles and the option to research companies they are considering working for. With over 245 million resumes on Indeed, employers can also find and connect with top talent, creating a mutually beneficial situation for the workplace.

ApplicantStack is designed for small business clients, helping them compete with major companies for skilled talent. Without the right applicants and new hires, it becomes more difficult to grow and maintain a stellar team. But the recruiting process can take a lot of time and effort, which small business owners may not have to give.

ApplicantStack levels the playing field, and the integration with Indeed gets open roles in front of a wider audience. Sponsored Jobs, which can be created and posted within the platform, attract nearly five times more candidates than non-sponsored jobs. Plus, the applicant-tracking system (ATS) streamlines the recruiting process while ensuring access to all data from one place.

ApplicantStack Indeed Sponsored Jobs Integration

We’re excited to announce that ApplicantStack’s new Indeed Sponsored Jobs integration will help you reach qualified talent faster. From within ApplicantStack, you can post a job to your Indeed Sponsored Job account with a couple clicks!

Indeed Sponsored Jobs allow you to target candidates you might not reach through organic search. Sponsored jobs on Indeed are 4.5X more likely to result in a hire. Sponsoring a job on Indeed will help you reach a diverse and high-intent audience to expand your pool of quality applicants.

Review applicants, store communication templates, create hiring workflows and build talent pipelines faster than ever with ApplicantStack. Its intuitive interface allows you to post jobs to Indeed without leaving the software, match applicants’ profiles with your job descriptions and communicate directly with candidates via email or text.

Control Your Posting Budget

You determine the amount you can spend on pay-per-click, and Indeed charges you only when a candidate clicks through to view your job.

Hiring Analytics Are a Must-Have

You will also have detailed campaign performance data that will help you track and optimize your Sponsored Job campaigns in your Indeed account.

In addition, ApplicantStack analytics track metrics such as time-to-hire and hires by source. This allows you to measure the performance of job boards, social media sites, and employee referral programs to identify the most effective hiring channels. Plus, by tracking applicant time per hiring stage, you can spot bottlenecks in your process so you can streamline your workflow and shorten time-to-fill.

With an ATS, You Can Hire Faster

To build a team that can move your company forward, you need every advantage you can get. As the labor market has become increasingly competitive, many small businesses have taken steps to shorten the hiring process. With automated screening and filtering, ApplicantStack helps you quickly isolate a pool of qualified candidates to engage with. Then, use ApplicantStack to move the top candidates through the hiring stages as quickly as possible. Auto-emails and texting make it easy to send frequent updates and answer candidate’s questions. This is important because lack of communication increases the risk of the candidate ghosting you.

Small Business Outlook for Summer 2022: 8 Key Findings

Let’s look at the most recent data on factors affecting small business hiring for Q3 and beyond.

  1. Unemployment is holding steady at 3.6 percent–about the same as before the pandemic and the labor force participation rate increased slightly last quarter to 62.3% as more people entered the job market. (BLS)
  2. 89.5% of business owners still believe hiring new employees is somewhat or very difficult. (SCORE)
  3. Total employment among the smallest employers (1-19 employees) dropped approximately 0.7% in the last quarter. (NAPEO)
  4. 33% of small businesses surveyed reported that financial growth has stalled due to open roles, 27% said they have lost customers, and 24% have experienced delayed product launches due to hiring woes. (Indeed)
  5. 32% of small business owners say that inflation is their single most important problem (NFIB)
  6. On average, it takes small businesses about 4.5 weeks to find the right person for an open role and more than 1 in 5 (22%) say it takes up to two months (Indeed)
  7. Nearly 1 in 5 small businesses (18%) cite lack of the right hiring technology as holding them back in finding the right people. (Indeed)
  8. 37% of small businesses have increased flexible work options to retain workers. (U.S. Chamber of Commerce)

How can my small businesses find more candidates without raising wages?

If you’re a small business struggling to attract qualified talent, here are some tactics to consider.

  1. Strengthen financial planning benefits.
    • Rising inflation (79%) is employees’ top financial concern, followed by adequate retirement planning (59%), with employees currently contributing significantly more to retirement. (BrightPlan)
  2. Provide cross-functional training and experience.
    • Job seekers are prioritizing companies that can help them progress in their career.
    • Offer tuition reimbursement to employees who want to advance their education (require a year of employment as a qualification and don’t reimburse until they graduate from the program).
  3. Offer internships.
    • You’ll be able to introduce early-career employees to your company, vet them, and offer permanent positions to the top performers.
  4. Consider neurodiverse candidates.
    • 1 in 45 U.S. adults are on the autism spectrum and the unemployment rate for this group is 30% to 40% higher than workers with another type of disability.
    • Companies with significant numbers of neurodivergent employees report retention rates over 90%. (Autism Spectrum News)
  5. Participate in economic development programs if they are available in your community.
    • Some offer free employee training and grants or low-interest loans
  6. Offer part-time positions to expand your talent pool.
    • Job board searches for part-time positions have increased.
    • Be open to older workers who are coming out of retirement to work part-time.

Overcome 2022 Hiring Challenges

Hiring has never been more difficult–especially for high turnover industries and frontline job roles. To succeed, SMB hiring teams must optimize their processes with intelligent automation. ApplicantStack is equal to the task, helping you find higher quality candidates faster and with less effort. Our solution enables small hiring teams to compete with companies of any size in today’s tight labor market.

ATS Texting is a Must-Have

ApplicantStack’s texting feature is essential for today’s hiring landscape. Small businesses need to communicate with candidates where they are–on their mobile devices. Texting with candidates is crucial for the candidate experience as well as improved productivity, reduced ghosting, and higher success to fill rate. In addition, texting helps you reach job seekers and passive candidates that may not otherwise engage.

With ApplicantStack, you can send and manage texts with multiple candidates. The system stores a record of the conversations so everyone on the hiring team knows what’s going on. Recruiters can text links to screening questionnaires and interview scheduling calendars. Texting is especially helpful during the interview process. Candidates who make it to this stage are the cream of the crop and you don’t want to lose them to a faster competitor. If you shorten the interview evaluation process, you are less likely to have candidates drop out or receive an offer from another company.
