HR Technology is a Key Enabler of Organizational Success

(February 6, 2012) - iCIMS-Sponsored Analyst Report Shows HR Technology is a Key Enabler of Organizational Success

iCIMS, the leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions for the SMB market, recently co-sponsored the Aberdeen Group's January 2012 Human Capital Management Trends report. In the study, the Aberdeen Group found that Best-in-Class companies are using recruitment technologies to stimulate employee engagement, boost employee productivity, and improve customer satisfaction. The report outlines how efficient talent management processes drive measurable business improvements.

Aberdeen researched nearly 300 companies to determine how well they were performing on the core business of Human Capital Management: finding, engaging, and retaining talent. The report divided the 300 survey respondents into Best-in-Class (top 20%), Industry Average (middle 50%), and Laggard (bottom 30%). At Best-in-Class companies, 81% of employees rated themselves as "highly engaged," 71% of positions had a ready and willing successor identified, and there was a 13% year-over-year improvement in hiring manager satisfaction.

A recruitment technology platform was found to be a key enabler of success for Best-in-Class organizations. A recruitment technology platform is currently in use at 62% of Best-in-Class companies, as opposed to 54% of average companies, and 46% of laggard companies.

"Excellence in human capital management results from a combination of strategies, capabilities and enabling technologies," said Mollie Lombardi, co-author of the study and Research Director at the Aberdeen Group. "The Best-in-Class display a number of common core characteristics, one of which is an investment in world-class technology throughout most aspects of talent and workforce management."

"iCIMS is honored to be sponsoring an Aberdeen Group study," said Susan Vitale, Chief Strategic Officer, iCIMS. "The report reaffirms that strategic human capital initiatives require a robust technology infrastructure. iCIMS offers easy-to-use software with powerful reporting capabilities, backed by the industry's best customer support, making it the ideal solution provider for organizations interested in achieving best-in-class performance in 2012 and beyond."

The report notes that in 2012, the pressure of economic uncertainty is forcing organizations to operate more efficiently. Organizations looking to achieve the results needed to balance cost savings with quality investments. Recruiting will be measured on both its ability to fill positions as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, and its ability to increase the quality of the hires made.

iCIMS award-winning applicant tracking system automates the recruiting process, so HR professionals can spend less time on administrative tasks and more time on recruiting and developing talent. The company's sourcing and screening tools can be used to attract and filter the top candidates, and its social recruiting functionality enables recruiters to inexpensively reach significantly more candidates. To complete the pre-hire process, iCIMS also offers an onboarding solution, which can be used to engage new employees by immersing them in the corporate culture and aligning them with organizational goals.
