Overview

This template is used to make sure everyone involved in the process knows who does what, and how to promote consistency in how applicants are tracked and screened.  It will identify good potential candidates before advertising externally and show how effective your recruitment tactics are when you do advertise externally by tracking the number of applicants per posting, applicants who make it through initial screening, and applicants hired from which recruiting sources.  It will also provide you with evidence to support or adjust your methods of attracting top talent. 

How this Process Guide is used

The Process Guide for Staff - Tracking Applicants references all the ConnectsUs documents related to tracking applicants, and gives you the option to link them directly to the guide so your staff can open the documents while reading about them. You don't have to implement all the documents mentioned in this guide. It outlines our recommended process, but in the end it's up to you what you use.  If you decide not to use a document, just remove any references to it when you customize the guide.

Linking to documents right from the guide eliminates questions like:

  • What documents do I need?
  • When am I supposed to use them? 
  • How do I use them?
  • Where do I find them?
  • Do I have the right version?

  • I just wanted to write to say that ConnectsUs HR™ for Consultants is truly a gift. I've been searching for this type of support with other service providers with no luck. The templates and Resource Center you have created are so helpful, and provide a comprehensive menu of topics, best practices and well-written content that would have taken months to create from scratch. In most cases, my clients don't want to wait long to see results. I am very thankful to have found your product that makes me look so good!

    Thank you again!

    A new and thankful customer
