With the new year fast approaching, employers are looking to map out their talent acquisition strategies for 2023. Here we discuss some of the potential Recruitment Software Trends for next year, helping you to maximise the efficiency of your hiring tech toolkit…

What were some influential Recruitment Software Trends in 2022?

2022 saw a number of new recruitment software integrations hit the market, becoming increasingly popular with employers across a range of sectors. These included…

1) Right to Work integrations
With the 2022 changes to UK Right to Work (RtW) legislation, employers began looking for an easier way to streamline their hiring processes in-line with the updated requirements.

The changes saw the end of COVID-adjusted RtW checks, and the introduction of the new Digital Check Scheme for UK & Irish citizens.

RtW integrations allowed employers to upload identity documents directly into their recruitment software, to be checked by an Identity Service Provider (IDSP) using Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT).

This enabled recruiters to automate parts of the Right to Work Check process, saving time for their teams while ensuring compliance.

2) Remote hiring & onboarding tools

Remote working continued to increase in popularity throughout 2022, leading an increasing number of employers to adapt to virtual hiring and onboarding.

This saw increased demand for recruitment software integrations like video interviewing, virtual document signing, and remote onboarding.

These tools became an essential part of the hiring tech toolkit for many companies, leading recruitment software providers to adopt new remote recruitment modules.

Recruitment Software Trends for 2023 

With 2023 fast approaching, here are some of the recruitment software trends most likely to take prominence in the new year… 

1.  Automated candidate screening & scoring

Candidate screening & scoring automations can save valuable time for recruiters, while making it easier to assess applicants’ compatibility ‘at a glance’.

This works by using intelligent screening tech to pick out keywords and skills in candidates’ CVs, combining this data with recruiter scorecards to automatically assess the suitability of your applicants.

These tools can even automatically progress the strongest candidates to the next hiring stage, enabling quicker and more data-backed hiring decisions 

2. ATS-integrated careers page builders

A careers page is your employer brand’s ‘shop window’ to potential candidates. It’s there to showcase exactly what makes your business an ‘employer of choice’ in your industry.

However, building these sites can be incredibly time-consuming and expensive. That’s why ATS-integrated careers page builders are becoming so popular, allowing employers to build ‘drag-and-drop’ careers sites directly within their ATS.

This helps to strengthen your brand’s proposition in the job market, while centralising the search/application experience for your candidates. New applications are also streamed directly into your ATS – saving time on recruitment admin.

3. Automated reference checking integrations

Reference checking is one of the heftiest admin tasks faced by recruiters – but it remains a crucial way of ensuring candidates’ suitability to work with your business.

That’s why automated reference checking has such enormous appeal, allowing employers to send reference requests at the push of a button, and review feedback electronically.

This can even be integrated directly within your ATS, meaning reference requests are sent automatically when candidates reach a specific hiring stage. Not only does this save time for your hiring team, it also incorporates references into candidates’ ATS profiles for ease of screening and sharing with hiring managers.

In Summary:

2022 saw the emergence of a wide range of recruitment software trends, including remote hiring integrations, and Right to Work Check tools.

With 2023 fast approaching, employers are now considering which recruitment software tools best suit their recruitment needs.

Some recruitment software trends for 2023 could include:

  • Automated candidate screening & progression
  • ATS-integrated careers page builders
  • Automated reference checking integrations

Whatever the state of the recruitment market next year, we’re bound to see increased demand for hiring software and its many automations – as employers seek even more ways to streamline their recruitment processes.
