Eddy has been built and designed with one purpose in mind: to make it easy for companies to manage their people, payroll, and HR processes. People management begins with hiring. Helping companies find and hire the right people is core to what Eddy does.
We know that when it comes to building a great company, it’s the people that matter the most. There is no amount of money or no brilliant idea that can usurp the need for talented people to bring a business to life. People make magic happen. People make customers happy. People help businesses succeed.
So with that as a precursor, we cannot stress enough how important it is to hire great people. And because we care deeply about the success of our customers, we’ve built hiring tools to ensure that they can compete for the best talent.
We'll deliver HR articles and insights directly to your email inbox.
Hiring Made Easy with Eddy
Hiring new employees can be a monumental task that takes a lot of time and effort. It starts with writing a great job description, determining how to distribute the job post on various job boards, and then waiting for an avalanche (or trickle) of job candidates to send their resumes to your inbox.
Sorting all these candidates can be a nightmare, and the process of scheduling interviews can be brutal. And at that point, you’re only halfway done.
You still need to come up with good interview questions to ask, get your co-workers involved, move candidates across hiring stages, keep candidates updated on their status, send rejection emails to those who won’t qualify, and eventually, find someone who is worthy to hire.
Whew! We need to take a deep breath just thinking about all of that.
Doing this without hiring software built specifically for this process is like trying to chop down a mature oak tree without an ax. Eventually, you might figure out a way to get it done, but you certainly won’t do it in an efficient, streamlined way.
10 Ways Eddy Makes Hiring Easy
So how can Eddy help? Here are 10 ways Eddy makes it easy:
1. Posting a job.
We’ll give you tips on how to write a great job description and help you create the perfect application for your job candidates. Once you’re ready to post it, we’ll automatically share it to the world’s top job boards at no extra cost.
2. Tracking candidates.
When candidates apply for your position, you won’t get overwhelmed with dozens of resumes in your inbox. Instead, all your candidates will appear in a beautifully-designed drag-and-drop dashboard. Simply click into a candidate and see everything you ever wanted to know about them.
When you use Eddy, you can communicate with candidates via email directly from a candidate’s profile. This keeps all candidate communication in one place, making it easy to track and easy to facilitate.
Hiring is a team sport. When it comes to bringing someone new into your company, you want to have collaborators working with you during the hiring process. Eddy makes it easy to communicate and collaborate with your co-workers regarding the various candidates you’re considering.
Sometimes, when you are working with a lot of job applicants simultaneously, it can be hard to remember who you liked and who you didn’t. Eddy solves this by allowing you to give star ratings to each of your candidates and leave comments and notes so you can record your thoughts after each interview.
6. Interview Guides.
What questions should you ask in a job interview? How can you ensure that your interview process is standardized and fair for each candidate? What questions are off-limits or illegal? Eddy answers all these questions with interview guides built directly into the software.
It can be hard to keep track of the various skills, strengths, and weaknesses that each of your candidates possesses. Eddy makes this easy by allowing you to add customs tags to any candidate. We then allow you to filter and search for candidates by tag, so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for.
8. Company careers page.
Do you have a careers page on your website? If not, it’s time you make that a priority. Because we know how critical it is to have a strong careers page, we made it easy for our customers to customize, create, and publish a beautiful careers page directly on their website within a matter of minutes. It automatically updates with every new job post you list, and it’s available to our customers at no extra cost.
9. Social sharing.
It’s no secret that employee referrals are often the best source of candidates when it comes to hiring. However, sometimes it can be hard to get your employees involved. Many employees don’t even know what open positions their company is hiring for. Eddy solves this by putting open job positions directly on each employee’s home screen. Not only will they be able to see the available jobs, but they can share them to their social media accounts with just a click of a button. This allows you to improve your reach and your candidate pool.
10. Integrated onboarding.
Once you find the perfect candidate and decide to make them an offer, Eddy takes care of all your onboarding needs. The transition from job candidate to employee could not be easier. Within a few minutes, you’ll be able to have your new hire set up in policies for PTO and time-tracking, added to your payroll schedule, and have all their onboarding paperwork directly sent to their email inbox where it can be signed electronically.
Hiring doesn’t have to induce a headache. At Eddy, we’ve built hiring software to make the process simple, painless, and easy. Everything from posting the job to reviewing resumes to writing emails to making a final decision can all be done in one place.
Make it easy on yourself and on your company. Use Eddy to help you hire.
