A VMS, or Vendor Management System, is designed to help your company find and hire qualified employees on both a permanent and temporary basis. While it’s a method of managing hiring, how can it help you find the most qualified candidates for your open positions? A VMS can speed up the process, allowing you to source and interview qualified candidates faster so jobs aren’t left unfilled, but they also assist in the screening process. Here are a few ways that working with a VMS can help you find more qualified hires.   


Prescreening Data  

Your VMS will be able to provide you with the tools you need to effectively prescreen and maintain data records for all candidates. This is also true for individuals you’ve worked with before. You can see how long it’s been since they’ve completed the prescreening process and determine if they need to do it again.   

The data on prescreening also allows you to maintain records to show that you’ve been compliant with any necessary local and federal regulations regarding your employees.   


Past Performance Tracking  

It will also provide data on past performance. In some cases, you’ll be able to see where they’ve worked before and the results of their experience. If they have worked in-house in another capacity, or department, you can review how their work positively impacted your organization.   

Past performance tracking allows you to see in real-time if an employee will be a good fit for your open position, whether it’s on a temporary or full-time basis.   


Hiring Process Metrics  

It’s also important that you can review the process by which you hire new employees. What resources are you using to find talent? Where are they coming from in terms of sources like online advertising, networking, referrals, and more.   

When you can track this information, you can put more of your effort and money into the things that work. But you can also see if you need to alter anything to increase diversity of candidates, qualifications, and more.   


Qualification Matches  

A VMS also gives you the tools you need to quickly and efficiently match candidates to your open jobs. By working with keywords, you can enter information based on the job description. The VMS will review the resumes and return the results with matching qualifications.   

Once you have the top resumes returned in your search, you can take time reviewing fewer of them. This allows you to focus on your other day-to-day job duties.
