Google announced in a recent blog that it will be helping G Suite users with the recruiting and hiring process with its newest app, Hire.
The blog points to a study by Bersin by Deloitte that explains an average of 52 days and $4,000 is used in the interview process, from scheduling through assessing candidates. Hire aims to help small and medium businesses recruit more effectively. From Google’s blog:
Hire makes it easy for you to identify talent, build strong candidate relationships and efficiently manage the interview process end-to-end. It integrates seamlessly with G Suite apps like Gmail and Google Calendar, which more than 3 million businesses use, many of them to drive recruiting efforts. With the introduction of Hire, customers now have a hiring app alongside G Suite’s familiar, easy-to-use tools that can help them run an efficient recruiting process.
Hire will work together with G Suite to focus on top priorities of team members. Users can communicat with candidates and have the communications automatically sync with Gmail and Hire. The user’s calendar is visible in Hire so interviews are easily scheduled, and Hire will automatically fill the scheduled interview with pertinent information such as contact info and questions to focus on. Users can then track, analyze, and visualize data from tracked candidates using Sheets and Hire.
Hire was created after hundreds of user-testing sessions, and refined through trials with early adopter customers for over a year to ensure a strong user experience. Google recounts a specific client success story in Brad’s Deals:
Brad’s Deals is a free service that compares online prices to help consumers find the best deals. As a growing organization, recruiting is a top priority for the company. With more than 260 active candidates in their pipeline, Brad’s Deals uses Hire to share candidate information, capture feedback from the interviewing team in one place and track interview progress.
“Hire’s intuitive and simple UI makes it easy for recruiters, hiring managers or even interviewers to take an active part in the recruiting process,” says Jessica Adams, vice president of Human Resources at Brad’s Deals. “The app’s integration with G Suite enables us to quickly access all candidate communications in one place, efficiently schedule interviews and collaborate to reach a hiring decision quickly.”
Hire is available now as part of Google’s G Suite.
