Paycor Announces New Candidate Texting Service

Paycor to Offer Candidate Texting Service Fully Integrated into their Applicant Tracking System.

CINCINNATI – Oct. 30, 2019 – Human Capital Management (HCM) company Paycor today announced Candidate Texting, a new service integration into Paycor’s Applicant Tracking Solution (ATS) that enables instant communication with candidates through text messaging. Candidate Texting streamlines the recruiting process by connecting with top talent faster than email or voicemail, and improves the candidate experience by using today’s workforce’s preferred method of communication.

With unemployment rates at 3.5% - the lowest reported in 50 years - being able to quickly and effectively engage with potential job candidates is more important than ever. According to a LivePerson study titled, “The Digital Lives of Millennials and Gen Z,” there is an “overwhelming favoritism for messaging over phone calls.” In fact, when asked if they would keep the ability to make a phone call or send a text message, nearly 75% of U.S. respondents chose messaging.

Benefits of Paycor’s Candidate Texting:

  • Communicate Instantly: In today’s candidate-driven environment, employers using Candidate Texting can connect with candidates instantly.
  • Eliminate Emails and Phone Calls: Emails have the potential to get lost in spam and phone calls don’t always allow recruiters to identify themselves before a candidate picks up the phone. With Candidate Texting, recruiters won’t get stuck in a game of phone tag or fear their email overlooked or filtered into spam.
  • Strengthen the Talent Pipeline: Candidate Texting can strengthen the talent pipeline by enabling recruiters to reconnect with a previous candidate about a new role that just opened. It also enables text reminders about upcoming interviews and general information such as directions to the business for that interview.

Paycor’s Applicant Tracking, with candidate texting, was designed by recruiters who understand the challenges of hiring top talent.
