Unatrix helps with the implementation of the GDPR
As of 05/25/2018 companies that collect personal data of EU citizens are required to implement the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (short GDPR).
This new law was passed to improve the protection of the rights of citizens and the safeguarding of their personal data.
The complete version of the Act can be found here.
Consequently, this new Act does have a significant impact on application management, if personal data is stored and shared.
In this context, the primary obligation of companies is to comply with the newly defined rights of candidates. The following text describes the most important of these rights and the measures that are supposed to be implemented. Unatrix offers various related functions that simplify the implementation of these measures.

The employer brand, an asset to drive talent acquisition
The employer brand is far from being a new theme for HR professionals; these past few years most of the news came from technologies that are revolutionizing the relationships between applicants, companies and recruiters.
The ‘War for Talents’ has been a theme many times discussed in Unatrix, here in this blog and during customer talks as well. In a job market under pressure, it is sometimes easier to find requirements and projects rather than good talents! Below are some tips to limit the loss of good candidates thanks to tips in using a company’s employer brand.

Here a few advices.

Applicant tracking for recruitment and engineering agencies
It is in Unatrix’s DNA to be designed according to the customers’ needs. Therefore our software for recruitment agencies has become indispensable in the market for e-recruitment systems. Our value added: the specific alignment with the combination of applicant tracking, CRM and ERP contains all core functionalities a recruitment and engineering service needs for their e-recruitment. Nevertheless, a rolling stone gathers no moss. So we do not rest ourselves with the achieved results but we plan and go ahead strategically.
Challenges in HR today
The challenges that companies are facing today in recruitment refer more and more to the candidates: there are always less qualified ones for the jobs advertised, the „war of talents“ is raging. Therefore the employers have to rely to providing the most positive „candidate experience“ they are able to or rather make it as easy as possible for their candidates to apply. On the other hand there are more and more interesting possibilities in „active sourcing“ thus the direct approach of the interesting profiles, who might not be actively looking for a new job. Social and mobile recruitment are only two of the trends that are currently totally hot.
What are the 9 key features for an e-recruitment system for engineering services?
Nowadays recruitment software has to meet many requirements. Whenever a company decides to select a new system there are different groups of interest involved: e.g. recruiters, business managers, IT and management departments. Therefore software manufacturers often see themselves confronted with complex requests and specification sheets that hardly any system can fulfill within a reasonable budget range. So exactly which qualities does an e-recruitment system have to possess to enable the recruiters and business managers to work efficiently?

Self-developed software vs standard software in recruitment; a comment
Many companies ask themselves the question whether to use a proven external e-recruitment software or to develop an own applicant tracking system (ATS). An own proprietary development would then obviously be tailor-made. Though you have to be aware whether your know-how and resources are big enough for this.
Why build up talent pools?
Skills shortage is a widely known phenomenon
Nowadays many companies feel the „war of talents“, meaning the fact that there is a sinking number of candidates for the existing jobs to be staffed. By consequence more vacancies remain open or it takes more time to cover them. Maybe there are even additional recruiting ressources (e.g. staffing agencies, engineering services provider) required.
