Bersin, in their recently released Talent Acquisition Systems 2014 Guide to Hiring Management Software discusses this fast-changing and strategic market in detail and we are pleased to have Saba listed in Bersin's pick of hottest current crop of solutions.
At Saba, we've always been laser focused on providing an intuitive, engaging user experience, therefore, two areas Bersin highlighted in its report around candidate experience really hit home: elevating the engagement of the corporate career site and simplifying the application process.
Following are some tips to consider in building your recruiting infrastructure.
Engaging Corporate Career Site
A company’s career site is the first introduction a prospective job candidate has to that organization. If done right, this is a great way to showcase your company’s culture, build your brand and distinguish yourself from your competitors. The best career sites should be:
Use of Toggle bar in place of words to visually display job requirements
Simplified Application Process

Log-in and apply with social profile
The war for acquiring top talent is getting more competitive and unless organizations adopt new and engaging ways to attract and interact with candidates through the hiring process they will miss qualified candidates. A positive candidate experience can make all the difference.
