With unemployment on the rise and jobs scarce, many employers who are hiring are now finding that they are overwhelmed with sheer number of incoming resumes. Since this can be daunting for many HR departments, applicant tracking
systems are more important now than before the economy began to struggle.
One employer which recently selected an applicant tracking program is the Washington Hospital in Pennsylvania. The healthcare provider recently announced its decision to perchance Integral Systems, Inc.’s i-Trust program to aid in the process of hiring new employees.
The Washington Hospital, which is the largest full-service hospital in Washington County, currently provides healthcare to approximately 250,000 in the area. This means that it has to continually hire new workers to continue to keep up with a growing populations, making applicant tracking extremely important
. At this time, there are 350 primary and specialty physicians working for the healthcare provider and 1,995 other employees.
Part of the reason that the Washington Hospital chose Integral to take care of this HR software
is need is the fact that the company has had 30 years worth of experience in the industry. In addition to this, the i-Trust system offers a new approach to soliciting, tracking and hiring new workers, according to a recent press release.
"The Washington Hospital looked for a solution that offered an integrated process of tracking new hires from resume through to job offer and acceptance," said William Cline, who is The Washington Hospital's VP of Human Resources. "Integral's Applicant Tracking System provides us with an event driven solution - one that will be instrumental in allowing us to create and implement an effective recruitment process and then to manage the employee portfolios of those we hire."
"While performing its due diligence process for selecting a human capital vendor, Washington Hospital knew that they required a vendor who offered both a proven solution, and one that was backed by a staff of trained, experienced, industry experts," said President and COO of Integral Systems, Inc Scott Macdonald.
