Let’s face it: Globalization is affecting every core business activity, from supply chain and customer engagement to regulatory reporting and talent attraction and retention. Traditional HR technology hasn’t been able to rise to meet the evolving needs of business. The deployment of multiple HCM systems has weakened core HR functions for many companies. Inconsistent and inaccurate data have plagued payroll and benefits reporting, in addition to more strategic efforts, such as workforce planning and career development. As a result, global corporate culture is not defined or supported across local regions, and the workforce remains unengaged.

Canada’s Leading HR, Payroll, and Benefits Platform Announces New Integration with Indeed Canada

Humi | June 21, 2021

Humi, Canada’s leading all-in-one HR platform that provides small to medium-sized businesses with HR, payroll, and benefits solutions, announces a new integration with Indeed, Canada’s number one job site. Together, Humi and Indeed will improve the recruitment experience and allow recruiters to instantly post and sponsor jobs from the Humi platform. This integration removes traditionally tedious tasks so HR teams and recruiters can focus on finding what really matters, talent. “By leveraging technology in the recruiting process, we’re seeing companies hiring more proactively. We’re also starting to see role requirements that were once a rarity, becoming more common. This is creating a need for a more sophisticated recruiting tool,” said Andrea Bartlett, Director of HR at Humi. “We are seeing a higher volume of candidates applying across all industries in Canada, which shows us the importance of being efficient in managing the recruiting process and communicating with candidates. Meanwhile, the remote work environment has caused the time to hire to decrease. This is in part because candidates who are currently employed are passively job searching. With the underemployment impact of COVID creating a surge in applicants, organizations have had to adapt their recruiting processes and increase speed and efficiency, so they don’t lose out on qualified talent.” Indeed is the number one job site in Canada, and the world. Globally, more than 250 million people search for jobs, post resumes, and research companies on Indeed each month. The recruitment process is essential for efficient company growth and Humi is helping to solve cross-customer recruitment problems through technology. There is a huge demand for talent right now, STEM jobs make up 34 percent of the current Canadian workforce and roughly, over 1.8 million Canadians work in the digital economy, predicted to grow to two million by 2023. As Canada’s leading HR tech platform, it’s Humi’s top priority to partner with companies like Indeed to provide efficient services and create a seamless experience. Employers can find talent through Indeed and applicants are automatically fed into Humi, where they can then hire and manage their employee data in one system. Humi unifies all applicant tracking by allowing its customers to create a job board, add hiring managers, and share posts to Indeed, directly from the platform. The need for improved recruitment efficiency and effectiveness is not specific to one industry, it is a broad market need that has shown itself clearly in the current talent war. Technology has, and will continue to, revolutionize the process, improving the experience for both the employer and candidate.

The Qualtrics DEI solution uses best practices and a validated model. It measures drivers of inclusion including individual belonging and authenticity, equitable processes, and psychological safety across the entire employee experience. This is from the candidate experience to onboarding and ongoing tenure. Thus, organizations can now have the ability to and identify the most impactful actions that will drive inclusive, equitable, processes and cultures from the experience of DEI and insights with operational data from the existing HR systems.
