Are you still using Excel Spreadsheets for Recruiting?

At iRecruit, we speak to employers every day who are looking to make a change to their hiring processes. Whether that is a company making a change to their ATS, or investing in an Applicant Tracking Software for the first time. Quite often we hear from employers who do not have a formal process in place, and are still using spreadsheets in Excel to manually track all of their recruiting efforts. Despite Excel’s phenomenal capabilities, it’s not always the right tool to use with recruiting and hiring. It can often lead to several issues:

  • Time consuming
  • Difficult to keep track of candidate communications
  • Difficult to keep track of notes
  • Difficult to keep track of interviews
  • Don’t know if hiring manager has made a decision
  • Reporting all done manually – it takes forever to do
  • Need to collect EEO data manually

If you have to manage multiple recruitiment sources, sponsored job advertising, keep track of several job openings and multiple hiring managers at once the manual data entry in Excel can be excessively time consuming.

“We need to implement a system to keep us organized since we want to grow.”

An ATS, like iRecruit, helps you move away from these manual processes, freeing up your time to focus on more strategic HR and recruiting tasks.

iRecruit Express is available for companies who want to move away from spreadsheets without creating too much of a burden in learning new software or incurring steep monthly fees. When you need to add more features, you can step up to the Professional or Enterprise Editions. All versions of iRecruit include unlimited job posting. We can even import your Excel spreadsheets to keep your data current.
