Digital transformation is changing how businesses work (internal) or communicate with their customers (external). However, in most situations, digital transformation entails purchasing software and data technologies such as recruiting solutions and online recruitment channels, to reduce or remove administrative activities and improve operational performance within and across departments and hiring teams. There are various benefits of digitalization or shifting to the online mode of recruitment such as:
Better productivity and time efficiency: In a variety of ways, online recruiting aids in the speeding up of everyday hiring procedures. Companies can automate administrative tasks such as keeping track of applicant paperwork or arranging interviews. Online recruiters use applicant tracking system (ATS) solutions to screen candidates quickly since the ATS stores all of the requisite candidate data in one location. They will not have to read a resume before moving on to the candidate's cover letter, portfolio, or appraisal because it will be on the same page. Recruiters are not the only ones that profit from online recruitment systems. Candidates can also apply quickly since the processes include auto-filling application forms and one-click apply buttons. Other factors promoting the digitalization are improved candidate analysis and access to vast number of applicants, among others. The above-mentioned factors are promoting the digitalization in recruitment process among companies across the globe, thereby fueling the growth of the online recruitment market.
However, the COVID 19 Impact has severely impacted the online recruitment market. The US is the world's worst-affected country by the COVID-19 outbreak. The consequent economic downturn has led to the rise in number of jobless candidates by more than 14 million in the country, which reached 20.5 million in May 2020 from 6.2 million in February 2020. As a result, in 2020, the rate of unemployment increased from 3.8% in February to 13.0% in May in the US; the rise in unemployment rate continued in April as well with 14.4%. This also led to a standstill in recruitment process across the region thereby impacting the online recruitment market.
