The growth of mobile-friendly applicant tracking systems

In today’s world, there isn’t much that hasn’t become mobile-friendly for consumers. From banking and booking flights to ordering food and paying bills, almost everything can be done from your smartphone in the palm of your hand. Now, applying for a job is no different. Thanks to mobile-friendly applicant tracking systems, also known as ATS, the job search experience is now optimized.

Fueled by increasing candidate demand for simple, quick-apply processes that are fully functional on mobile devices, staffing firms and talent acquisition teams at companies are investing in modernizing their ATS to better attract top, passive talent. In fact, according to LinkedIn’s 2015 Global Recruiting Trends Report, 34 percent of respondents said their career sites were mobile-optimized, a 14 percentage-point increase from 2014.

Ultimately, streamlining the system allows recruiters the opportunity to identify talent more efficiently and gives job candidates the quick, convenient access and simple process they’re looking for. These tech-savvy, forward-thinking companies that utilize modern and mobile-friendly ATS are the ones putting employees first. Moreover, an organization’s applicant management process offers significant insights about company culture and values.
