For those thinking about hiring again soon, at eArcu we've put together an easy way to check if you have the complete picture of your candidates' experience in applying for your jobs.

You'll be surprised at how inconsistent most candidate journeys are. Our simple to use checklist will help you to track all the different technologies your candidates experience on their way to being hired. When we start work with new clients we often find up to ten different touchpoints.

Contact us for more details and your free copy of the checklist.

How do you select the right tech?

How do you select the right tech?

Hiring top talent is a challenge faced by every organisation, regardless of size or industry and never more so than now has tech played such a crucial role in restarting the economy. But how do you ensure you select the right tech?

We’re delighted to have collaborated with The FIRM on their Insight report, exploring how to select and get the most out of your ATS. Sharing insights into how best to identify and implement the right ATS for your business and future-proof your tech.

Today’s ATS has long since outgrown the simple notion of tracking applicants, with the last ten years seeing a huge amount of innovation. The ATS is now the beating heart of the candidate experience, and a core part of employer branding.

Time to move to virtual candidate assessment?

Time to move to virtual candidate assessment?

Sometimes we're forced to think differently, never more so than now.

With social distancing in play, we've all switched to virtual meetings via video conferencing, but this usually needs scheduling.

However, increased use of assessment software can make a big difference. The opportunity to review applicants' abilities, competencies, skills & behaviour before setting up a video interview can improve the overall outcomes, saving time, money and improving the quality of our hires.

Wondering how to track and keep in touch with staff on Furlough?

Wondering how to track and keep in touch with staff on Furlough?

Over the last few weeks we've been helping our clients in all kinds of ways. This has been the catalyst for our Innovation Centre to solve problems none of us knew we had. Requests and feedback from our clients, led us to create a Furlough Management System (FMS) which is now ready to deploy to other organisations as well.

The eArcu FMS helps you to manage, track, communicate and support employees who are put on Furlough. It will be immediately available and as part of the eArcu Talent Suite, it’ll be familiar and easy to use. Our FMS will allow you to identify furloughed staff, track the dates of their furlough, send email and SMS Text communication with them, manage them in groups, track their status and keep copies of their CVs and skills.

There’s also a secure and client-branded Furlough Portal that your furloughed people will be invited to access. This portal will support them with vital information during the period they are on Furlough. Our solution helps to retain contact and keep in touch with your furloughed staff through this period. Access from home, performance, hosting, security and backups are all in place ready to go. Get in touch to find out more.

Staying connected

Staying connected

Ever start a journey and end up in a completely different place from where you were headed? When the current crisis started, we wanted to find ways we could help our clients.

Having established close relationships over many years, clients shared where the real need was, for each of their businesses at this challenging time. So we got our teams working around the clock to build a variety of solutions to respond to urgent needs.

Right now there’s a need to help businesses keep in touch with their staff on Furlough. We’re very fortunate to have the in-house resourcing community collaborate with us to build a Furlough Management System (FMS) that helps them manage, track, communicate and support employees on furlough.

Please get in touch if this might help you too – we’re waiving all licence and hosting costs for all organisations with over 50 staff on Furlough for the duration of the Government Scheme.
