Are you using Rules Automation Manager (RAM) triggers within IBM Kenexa BrassRing to automate repetitive manual tasks? They can really reduce the amount of time spent on administrative items, allowing you to focus more on building relationships with high performing candidates or other activities that require a personal touch.
RAMs are a powerful tool for streamlining your talent acquisition process. They do it by automating manual or time-consuming steps based on a set of logical statements that you set up within the BrassRing workbench. For example, if a candidate reaches a certain step in the application process, you can automatically send them a thank you email. Or once you hire a new employee, you can auto-disposition other candidates across a req and close it. The key is that some activities can be triggered without someone having to keep monitoring for its completion.
The time it takes an individual to update a status, monitor for a response, or send a communication translates into time better spent on something else. How much time? While the time may range from 15 seconds to a couple of minutes on each individual activity, let’s use an average of 30 second to calculate some of the savings. Those 30 seconds multiplied by the number of transactions that take place in a year add up to a lot of money that your time is worth.
