As the year draws to an end, the recruitment industry has seen an immense transformation thanks to the power of disruptive HR jobs and innovation in South Africa. Over the 5-10 years, the industry will undergo an immense evolution that will replace traditional methods of recruiting, talent acquisition and talent retention. South African job portal, Zigo.co.za, is leading the disruptive nature of recruiting by transforming its simple website into a hub for HR activities in South Africa.
Cloud-based Recruiting and Job-seeking
Newspaper classifieds are going out of fashion as we head into a new era with the advent of social media and the development of online tools. South Africa has seen an immense amount of portals offering jobs from varying recruiters. A leader in HR transformation, Zigo has taken a step further from traditional job portals and has created an aggregation tool that aggregates jobs from several leading job portals across South Africa. In addition, recruiters also have the opportunity to advertise their jobs with Zigo and have their adverts distributed across job portals and social media networks.
Redefining Talent Management
Zigo also offers recruiters a CV database to assist employers to seek the talent they require across industries. Once a company is signed to Zigo, it is possible for them to look through CVs when they are looking for specific talent. This is a true redefinition of talent acquisition as candidates who frequently update their profile and CV, they become visible to employers. In addition, Zigo recently launched a cloud-based Leave Management System that allows employers to efficiently manage employee leave days.
Customisation and Engagement
Zigo offers candidates the opportunity to engage with potential employers by creating job alerts and following a company to ensure that they stay up to date with opportunities in their industries. Recruiters also have an opportunity to actively engage with candidates on their career development and whether they are a suited to their organisational culture. The recruitment process is becoming less stagnant for both recruiters and jobseekers as they can engage with potential employers on social networks, update their CVs as frequently as possible and actively monitor the industries they’re interested in.
