Recruitment and Onboarding Services

Finding the best talent for a company is vital, and Elmo’s recruitment cloud solution is one of the best for job requisition and job postings. For their job requisition platform, you can select a required job position, alert your recruitment manager, plus use a tracking system for progress.
You even get a talent pool portal for searches and job matching. Job postings are easier than ever with job board and social media integration. Included is a tool to create your own branded career webpage with many customisation features.

The onboarding platform is fully integrated as well with a personalised webpage available. A workflow and approval portal includes electronic forms you can access on any mobile device. An analytics page is easy to read and thorough to keep track of what’s happening.

Measuring Performance

Keeping up with how your new hires perform isn’t always easy without numerous meetings. Elmo’s performance platform lets you keep up with everything in each department without having to visit the office in person.

Performance appraisals allow you to look more carefully into what your new employees are doing. This includes compiling up to 360 reviews, and goal settings. Your manager’s team review is fully consolidated here so you can look in on current review statuses.

A succession planning platform is equally detailed and lets you create better strategies for who advances. Configurable reports give you vibrant colour graphics so you have a complete view of what every employee does.

Learning and Designing Courses

To keep your company’s team fully trained, it frequently requires protracted and expensive ways toward education. Elmo ably demonstrates how the cloud makes this easier through their learning platform. With access to over 250 pre-built learning courses provided through Elmo, training has never been more efficient.

However, the company lets you build your own courses if necessary. It’s all done internally through another cloud portal you can access and use anywhere you have an Internet connection. All of the pre-built courses mentioned above bring best practices for industry-specific training.
