Same is the case when you make use of employee performance trackers and tools. All these will reduce the demanding time of recruiters and HR on routine works and give them enough time for other creative works. As such, these tools increase the overall performance of a company.
These are only just a few examples of how digital transformation and IT are helping recruiters manage their works and be more productive than before. If properly used, they not only will aid the recruiters but will also help the candidates.
