In HR? There is an app for that!

In Human Resources most of us think of apps and likely our minds go right to recruiting. It makes sense; some of you may be familiar with job boards such as Monster, CareerBuilder, Indeed, and SimplyHired. These recruiting sites allow both employees and employers to search for open positions and available potential candidates.

However, there are NEW and IMPROVED applications such as, JobSpeek, and Jobvite which are mobile solutions that allow recruiters to screen, review, and manage candidates all with their mobile device.

Mobile HR….A trend for 2015!

The technology world is providing HR professionals much more in the app store than just recruiting solutions.

We are now able to run payroll, manage time and attendance, and evaluate employee performance from the road.

  1. Interesting post. I currently work for a company that uses a program called Dayforce for HR purposes (scheduling, time off, time sheets, etc). I think that having mobile apps for HR purposes will definitely be seen more as we develop more technology. It is incredibly convenient and has endless capabilities!


  2. Toni,
    Great post! During my time of technical recruiting and HR work, boy would I have loved the technology and apps of today. Your post made me realize how that industry has changed and exactly how much better and easier it is getting for those involved. Connecting and managing candidates, employees and employers has become so much easier than my Daytimer used to be! After 5 years as an iPhone user, I still get amazed at the apps that come out each day that make our lives easier and more fun and manageable. This one took the cake! Huzzah!


  3. Good post! I have worked earlier on People soft and Taleo but Kronos is new to me. The best feature I liked is that it is mobile. There are so many times I wished we could look for, screen and shortlist prospective employees while on the go and when in a time crunch! Flexibility and user friendliness is the biggest key here. Thanks for sharing info about this app. I’m surely going to look into it:)
