Simplifying your apply flow will accelerate your ability to source experienced candidates

While many organizations are slowing down or suspending operations due to COVID-19, there are still many essential businesses that must continue running, and many of those organizations are seeing a surge in demand for certain rolesMany healthcare organizations are looking to rapidly hire additional doctors, nurses, and support staff, and many other businesses are looking for frontline workers such as grocery clerks, truck drivers, delivery drivers, and IT professionals. 

If you need to hire qualified candidates quickly to meet increased demand, you want to ensure your job application process isn’t turning candidates away before they submit a completed application. Two things that you should consider are how long it takes a candidate to complete and application and if they are required to create an account before they can submit their application. 

Research has shown candidates are 365% more likely to abandon an application that takes more than 15 minutes to complete, and that upfront ATS user registration causes 60% of potential applicants to drop out of the process at this stage.  

One of our customers, Bayshore Healthcare, was experiencing high candidate drop off rates with their Taleo apply flow because it was a long experience that required upfront registration.
