Top 20 Benefits of an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) for Home Care Recruiting
Home care recruiting is one of the hardest recruiting jobs and recruiters (and internal HR departments) are faced with many challenges. Here are just a few:
- High turn over rate! Some of the largest across industries
- Difficult to find and keep top talent
- Applicants might not be very technical
Luckily there are products that can assist you in making your job much easier. Using an applicant tracking system (ATS) such as ApplicantStack can simplify the home care recruiting and employee onboarding process.
Top 20 Benefits of an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) for Home Care Recruiting:
1. Automatically Post Your Jobs to Multiple Job Boards
Find your candidates wherever they’re searching. Post your job listing to job boards such as Indeed, Glassdoor, LinkedIn for Jobs, CareerBuilder, ZipRecruiter, Monsters, Snagajob etc. as well as social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, & Twitter. All with the click of a button.
Use the manual posting links to post your jobs to specialty and niche job boards as well in order to stay compliant for government regulations
2. Track & Manage Applicants
Gone are the days of trying to manage multiple email folders and Excel spreadsheets. Using an ATS allows you to customize your workflow to match your current process.
3. Save Time with Pre-Screener Questions
Use pre-screener questions to quickly knock-out unqualified candidates and to prioritize the best ones using automatic scoring. Then systematically review interviewer feedback to focus on high-priority candidates so you can quickly make offers.

Send notifications to candidates. Schedule interviews. Gather interview feedback. Rate candidates. An ATS can automate all of these functions and more, enabling recruiters to the highest value-added activities.
