Applicant Tracking Systems can sometimes get a bad rep, can’t they?

ATS myths include a lack of control over internal processes, a loss of human discretion and opinion, and the fear that candidates may slip through the net if their CVs aren’t ‘automation-optimised’.

So, in a new guest blog for the In-house Recruitment Network, we’ve taken a look at some of these common ATS myths and explained why they’re not to be believed.

“Recruitment is driven by people, and we’re never going to lose that. Technology like an ATS can simply help to facilitate it.”

We’re firm believers that in-house recruitment software should be a tool to help recruitment teams manage their processes, not a machine to replace them.

With the right ATS and the right supplier, there’s no reason why your ATS myths should become a reality.
