Unpacking The Gold PODS

The first of its kind in South Africa, Placement On Demand Subscriptions (PODS) offer firms the flexibility to hire the best candidates for the job, faster and more efficiently at a fixed monthly cost. In this article, we will unpack the Gold package within talentCRU’s PODS offering.  

Incorporating Smart Technology Into Talent Acquisition

Digital transformation within the recruitment industry is nothing new. Given the proven ability of digital tools to drive efficiency and innovation in all fields, it has proven to refine and enhance the talent management and acquisition processes. Today, intelligent automation and machine learning are boosting applicant refinement and removing any biases. Yet many companies are not making use of this technology, mainly due to not understanding the benefits that smart technology can offer hiring managers and their departments. 

The good news is that emerging technology can help companies tackle the challenge of identifying, attracting and retaining critical talent. talentCRU has taken everything that a modern day Talent Acquisition team requires and integrated all of these components to build a completely harmonious and seamless offering. 

Placement On Demand Subscriptions (PODS) integrates all the human and technical resources required for a holistic recruitment experience. Smart, convenient and cost effective, PODS combines the world’s leading applicant tracking system with a full-suite candidate selection platform. 

Designed to enable innovative companies to hire better and faster while identifying top performers and measuring critical skills. PODS also delivers relevant validated data-driven matching scores that are supported and underpinned by recruitment experts.

What PODS is not…

  • Not a hiring platform but a human-led process that relies on the synergy between personnel input and technological refinement. 
  • Not a pay-as-you-go placement model, it’s a value-for-money monthly subscription service offering.
  • Not a Job Board but an end-to-end service offering.
  • Not an Artificial Intelligence automated sourcing tool, it enhances expert human-led sourcing.
  • Not an Applicant tracking System but an integrated managed service
  • Not an algorithm concocted automated matching tool, it draws on the expertise of seasoned recruiters.
  • Not an App but a tech-supported human-managed service.

What Makes The Gold PODS Different?

Structured to evolve client and candidate experience, the Gold PODS is set up to offer functionality across the board. 

Consisting of everything offered in the blue and silver packages, the Gold also comes with four additional offerings and can take up to 15 job requisitions per quarter. The Gold-specific traits include:

Dedicated Account Manager

The dedicated account manager will work closely with you and your talent acquisition team to develop an outcome sufficient to your needs and requirements.

Advertising: LinkedIn Recruiter

LinkedIn Recruiter is an all-encompassing hiring platform that helps find, connect with, and manage the people you want to be on your team. This grants access to advanced search filters and can prioritise recommended matches based on who’s most open to hearing from you.

Interview scheduling software

The many steps between sourcing candidates and making an offer can easily become a logistical nightmare, especially when you’re dealing with a high volume of applicants. The Gold package allows users access to interview scheduling software to manage and schedule interviews with candidates.
