Now that you're using Applied, you may find that you need to involve more team members into your hiring process. Increasing the number of people that review applications reduces work burden on individuals, but also brings in the benefit of "wisdom of the crowd".
We understand that communicating what Applied does can be tricky - so here are some guides for you so you can support your team.
I've just added people to the "Hiring team" - now what?
When you add members to the hiring team, we send them a "Welcome" email with a brief overview of the Applied process and what they can expect. If they have more questions after that, you might want to share:
- This article on what Applied is
