Is it worth all the effort?
Financially speaking, it will pay for itself within two years. Once the process is up and running, costs will be much lower for the company. Take, for example, the selection process: The application process has always required a great deal of time and paper, for both the applicant and us. We are represented by HR teams at 22 sites around the world and work in a lot of different languages. We receive around 6,000 applications each year, 70 % of which are unsolicited. By digitizing our application process across the board, we have significantly reduced the amount of processing required. We can also recommend interested candidates for whom there might not be an appropriate job at the one site to other company sites, or save their information for the future, provided we have the applicant’s permission. We’ll also require fewer HR consultants and thus save a lot of money.
