Benefits of Using Crosschq Recruit

Crosschq Recruit Benefit #1. Eliminates the need for sourcing

Sourcing is a time-consuming and tedious process. It can also be costly as you have to write proper job descriptions and pay the right channels to advertise. 

Screening a candidate's skills to see if they match the available positions can also be a headache for recruiters. However, since it is a process that you cannot avoid, the next best thing is adopting a passive means of building your candidate pipeline. 

Using Recruit, you will effortlessly build your talent pipeline. You also have access to a massive list of candidates opted-in from our employee referral network.

Crosschq Recruit Benefit #2. Cost-effective  

You may need to spend about 25% to 35% of a hire's annual base salary to pay a recruiter. This figure can significantly rise when hiring multiple candidates, even more if your employee turnover is high. 

Often, high employee turnover occurs when you are not using the right tools to help you. Recruit reduces the cost significantly by availing screened candidates passively. It also eliminates the need for expenses such as advertising open positions.

Crosschq Recruit Benefit #3. Saves time  

Recruiters spend about 13 hours a week on a single role, with about 33% of them spending 20 hours. You can use this time to do other income-generating activities. Free up this time for you and your employees by simply tapping into the wide range of talent available in our employee referral network. 

When you convert this time into money, you can just imagine how much money you can be saving. The more recruiters whom your company has engaged, the more considerable the savings.

Crosschq Recruit Benefit #4. Valuable candidates insights

Recruit provides data-driven, human-intelligent comprehensive candidate profiles to help you make the right hiring decisions. The data includes crucial information in the hiring process, such as education, past performance, and soft skills. The candidate pipeline tool raises red flags on potentially unsuitable candidates. With this data, you can confidently progress in the recruitment process.

In addition, the software easily integrates into your existing CRM and ATS. Talk to us to learn more about how Crosschq can reduce your talent sourcing time and save you money.
