Recruiting and Hiring
With the BirdDogHR Applicant Tracking System, companies can easily:
- Reach and attract top talent with specialized skill sets
- Expand the limited pool of engineering talent
- Report on OFCCP recruitment outreach and surveys
BirdDogHR™ understands the difficulties of locating and attracting top engineering candidates in a limited talent pool. When the time comes to make a hire, you need to act quickly to get new employees at your company, but not so quickly that you’re hiring without gauging expertise.
With the BirdDogHR Recruitment and Applicant Tracking System (ATS), we can help you expand your talent pool to ensure faster access to the candidates with the specialized skills you require. This relieves your busy HR department of time-consuming recruitment processes, while giving you the confidence that you’re making a solid hire. What’s more, you’re assured you have all the documentation you need for Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recruitment outreach and surveys.
Utilize the BirdDogHR employee onboarding software to:
- Smooth the transition from candidate recruiting to employee onboarding
- Engage your employees and prepare them for success
- Automate cumbersome manual processes
Once you find the best candidate to fill your engineering position, you want to get them up to speed right away. After all, your employees and customers are relying on that specialized talent to help them on key projects. While it can be tempting to throw new employees into the mix on day one, you need to take the time to review their documentation and give them all the information they need to flourish in their careers.
With an effective employee onboarding process in place, your new hires enjoy a smooth and engaging start to their work. This doesn’t only get them on the job quickly, but it also ensures that they align with their job duties, as well as your corporate culture and expectations. By laying out a roadmap for success on their first day, your employees have a better chance of making a difference at your company. Our employee onboarding system also allows you to automate your traditionally manual processes, easing the load on everyone in those first few days of employment.
Performance management software from BirdDogHR can help to:
- Standardize evaluations across different skill sets
- Set goals related to personal and company growth
- Create flexible timelines so that goals are reviewed consistently and often
- Save time by simplifying your performance management system
It’s important to have standardized evaluations to manage employee performance when you are dealing with different skill sets across your organization. All employees – but especially those in highly-skilled, engineering positions – need to have a firm grasp of their job requirements and objectives in order for the whole company to succeed.
Implementing performance management software helps you set and manage goals for employees, giving them a clear path of where their careers are going and what they are working toward. With this knowledge, employees become more engaged and start to take personal ownership in the company. You can also reap the benefits of sharing your overall organizational goals; by clearly seeing how their work affects these outcomes, your team will have even more drive to achieve their own personal goals.
Our user-friendly performance management software makes performance management easier and more flexible than ever before, so you can get the most out of your investment and save valuable time.
Learning Management and Employee Engagement
With BirdDogHR learning management software, your HR department has the power to:
- Develop the talent you already have
- Offer your employees opportunities for development
- Improve employee engagement and safety
Whether you’re developing talent you already have or conducting skilled employee onboarding, it pays to have a learning management system (LMS). Keeping all your training materials, plans, assessments, resources, and regulatory documents in one consolidated system is a huge time-saver. On top of that, you can ensure that your entire company is working from the most up-to-date content for truly standardized learning.
An LMS also helps you manage training, so engineering employees are sure to have the special skills they need to get their difficult jobs done right. Training opportunities for further development let team members add to their impressive list of skills, while showing them that you care about their careers. This boosts engagement and encourages key employees to stay at your company for the long run.
Our system also allows you to update materials as needed and even create brand-new content quickly. Have a safety concern on a new jobsite? Get the word out to your entire workforce right away and make sure they are protected. The best part is, notifications are available via mobile devices, so you have employee attention anytime, anywhere.
Career Planning and Succession Management
With our career planning and succession management software, you can:
- Prepare for the loss of specialized talent
- Identify key talent within your organization that may be ready for new challenges
- Enable employees to build a career path in your company
Being proactive when it comes to succession planning is one of the most effective things you can do to ensure a bright future for your company. When it comes to keeping specialized talent around, the best way to stay ahead of the curve is to help existing employees develop the skill sets you need. That’s why engaging up-and-comers should be a priority.
Having a succession planning process in place will help you identify the high-potential individuals in your organization that you want to take over key roles. These employees will appreciate the time and attention you are willing to invest in them. Not only will they become motivated by a career path for growth and development, but they will be eager to do what it takes to learn the job. That means you won’t miss a beat when positions open up within your company, because you will have a trained and reliable candidate ready to take over.
