Businesses have no other choice than to invest large efforts and assets in their recruiting process. Such a hunt for professionals goes beyond the services many user-friendly online platforms are offering nowadays. The majority of such websites stop their support the moment employers and employees form their first connection. Therefore, Google intercepted this niche in the business recruit industry that went incognito for too long time and build a service based on it.
Reports Show Employers Need 52 Days and $4,000 in Costs to Fill a Normal Job Position
Google has just introduced Hire only a month after the launch of Google for Job. While the latter offers simple and more effective solutions for job seekers, the latest application helps professionals on the hiring side deeper into their HR process. Hire is complementary to the G Suite. This means that it has no trouble working side by side with other Google products such as Gmail and Google Calendar.
The solution this product offers to the business recruit industry promises efficiency. The target public is the small to medium company that has already compiled a list of ideal candidates for their available job positions. According to recent data, employers need 52 days and a budget of $4,000 to fill in an average position.
The Business Recruit Industry Won Through Google’s Hire an Efficient Tool to Organize Interviews
So, Hire seems to be the right tool to schedule interviews, appoint roles for participants, and keep track of all candidates. The service is in sync with Gmail, Google Hangouts, and Google Calendar. Its user interface looks like a regular spreadsheet yet with extra options and features created with the recruiting needs in mind.
Alphabet’s unit in charge of the early works that went into such a project is Bebop. This startup is the creation of Diane Greene, a member of the Alphabet board and also a VMware co-founder. Google’s parent company eventually acquired this project two years ago and designated Greene as the head of Google’s cloud.
