Importance of Candidate Relationship Management

Relationships are the backbone of any business. Every successful businessman will tell you that he built his strong business on the basis of long-term relations with customers, vendors, clients, or investors.

Talk to clients, create a rapport, engage, win confidence, and grow in business. This is true but only to an extent.WhyRecruitment is different from other…See More

"@Steven, your point is well noted. However in many places in Asia, like in India, recruiters are still dependent on Excel sheets and have not adopted an ATS for various reasons - perhaps we can write a separate blog post on that."

"Why anyone would not use an ATS is beyond me in these days and times. There are even decent ATSs which are free! I would love to speak with the HR managers in order to help them select an ATS which works for their firm/environment."
