2. What makes your service stand out in the higher education recruitment and retention field?
HireTouch is built to accommodate the unique hiring needs of higher education institutions. Our solution provides a vast array of tools for HR departments, including configurable workflows, easy reference & background checks, selection committee functions, in-depth reporting, faculty/student hiring processes and more. Clients also love our knowledgeable, accessible and extremely helpful support and implementation teams!
3. What is the tool or resource you provide to clients that wins you the most accolades?
Higher Education clients love our Approvals module. The tool makes it easy for hiring and selection committees to view, approve and/or reject candidates with just a few clicks. It’s quick and easy and can even be done from mobile devices. Customers also appreciate that we satisfy the needs of all types of users, from HR Departments and selection committees to IT departments and applicants.
4. What is a trend you see in your field that affects higher education recruitment?
The biggest trend in software development right now is mobile technology. Seventy-seven percent of all job applicants expect to use mobile apps during their job search and nearly one-third of CareerBuilder.com’s traffic each month comes from mobile devices. However, as many as 40 percent of mobile candidates abandon the apply process when they encounter an application that is not optimized for mobile devices.
5. Does your company have any new initiatives or products that would be of interest to HERC members?
As mobile technology continues to grow at a rapid pace, our latest initiative to bring the HireTouch application experience to mobile devices is very exciting. Applicants are now able to create a profile, search for and apply to jobs all from their mobile devices. We continually improve and refine the product and are always looking for new ways to better serve our clients, including partnering and integrating with many specialized services such as background checks and HRIS/HRMS.
6. Why is partnering with HERC important to your company?
Partnering with HERC is important to HireTouch because we believe in providing higher education institutions with the best possible tools for hiring and recruitment.
