We’ve all seen the “Now Hiring” signs posted on doors and windows throughout our communities. It seems as they have become part of the permanent décor for some businesses. With labor shortages at an all-time high in the current economy, businesses are struggling to find qualified employees. It’s time we started fixing the hiring gap.
This crisis for employers is real, with a record 4.5 million workers — 3% of the total workforce—quitting their jobs in November 2021. The so-called “Great Resignation” is being felt in businesses that rely on in-person interactions. Businesses typically offering the lowest wages, including restaurants and hospitality, are really feeling the crunch. But the crisis is also leaving businesses across many industries strapped for skilled, experienced workers.
To compete effectively for qualified workers, businesses need to be able to reach them where they are, by posting job openings on a wide variety of platforms.
A better way to post jobs
What if there was a way to post your latest job opening on multiple platforms at the same time, instead of uploading one opportunity at a time on each website?
Simpay understands business owners don’t have the time to post their open jobs across every possible job board. Simpay’s Applicant Tracking functionality does this automatically for you. Simply create a position description one time and have it posted across as many job boards as you want. Automatically post on LinkedIn, Indeed, Career Builder, Zip Recruiter, Monster or even local boards focused on your market.
“When an applicant clicks on a posting and applies, their information funnels right into the employer’s payroll system,” says Will Ford, Vice President of Payroll Sales for Simpay. “The employer can view the application and all their information in the profile. When the person is hired, the payroll manager simply clicks a button and all the data is loaded right into the payroll system, saving time and manual effort.”
Outsourcing the solution
Could your business benefit from a one-stop partnership to help with your hiring challenges? We think so. It may be time to consider outsourcing the solution instead of doing it all yourself. True partners, like Simpay, find ways to solve critical problems and help you grow.
By creating intuitive and easy-to-use solutions designed to save you time and money, Simpay deals with day-to-day business operations, so you don’t have to. Do more of what you love, and let us do the rest!
