Today, we’re excited to announce a direct integration with Indeed, the number-one job site in the world with over 250 million unique monthly visitors. This integration will add to our sourcing capabilities by reducing friction for both recruiters and applicants, and consolidating data across the sourcing and hiring processes.
The current labor market has made it more difficult than ever for businesses to find and hire the right candidates to fill open roles. This challenge goes beyond the screening process and is rooted in how organizations source their applicants. As the world’s leading high volume hiring platform, we’re continuing to address this universal challenge with our suite of sourcing offerings, which enables employers to source and hire candidates through our unified platform as well as track and leverage applicant data every step of the way.
In the face of the current labor shortage, the job market has become highly competitive. Despite an increase in job openings, unemployment rates have continued to fall, leaving a staggering ratio of 58 unemployed workers for every 100 job openings. To find the right candidates in this sea of jobseekers, employers need to focus on strategic sourcing. This typically means having to juggle multiple sourcing tools on a daily basis; creating and managing new accounts for every channel they use; manually posting and updating openings on each channel; and downloading applicant lists to import into their ATS. This process is not only time-consuming and inefficient, but it also deprives employers of data continuity, making it nearly impossible to track their overall sourcing performance and learn how it contributes to their wider hiring process.
Our new Indeed integration addresses this problem by allowing users to post job openings directly to Indeed through our interface without having to create an Indeed account and at no additional cost. Rather than having to manage multiple tools to find and screen applicants, our integration enables employers to source, qualify, and hire applicants within a single platform.
Not only does this optimize the tracking of sourcing performance, but it also gives our customers access to wider hiring KPIs like cost-per-applicant and cost-per-hire, which can help inform changes and optimize hiring practices to get the right applicants in the door faster and ultimately staying longer. .
The Indeed integration seamlessly connects our customers to the world’s top job boards with the click of a button through Indeed Apply, a feature that enables applicants to apply to job openings without ever having to leave Indeed. This not only keeps the applicant from being redirected to an external application form, but also significantly decreases applicant drop-off rates.
Job openings that are Indeed Apply–enabled give candidates the option to immediately apply using their Indeed credentials and pre-saved Indeed profile, drastically improving the applicant experience. Hourly workers typically apply to many jobs, and Indeed Apply allows Fountain customers to tap into that flurry of activity and capture more applicants, giving recruiters a competitive edge by increasing applicant volume in a shorter period of time, ultimately decreasing time- and cost-per-hire.
Collectively integrating Indeed’s sourcing capabilities with an ATS like Fountain gives organizations the tools they need to automate and optimize where and how they spend their sourcing resources, furthering the efficiency with which our customers solve the challenges of high volume hiring.
