JazzHR Hits All the Right Notes for Stress-Free Recruiting

Friday, January 11, 2019

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate is holding steady at 3.7% for the past three months, the lowest it's been in 10 years.

That's good news for the economy overall, but if you’re an employer, it comes with a catch: it can be a lot harder to fill open positions. That’s just one of the reasons thousands of companies across North America have come to rely on our partner JazzHR, a long-time innovator in the recruiting software industry whose products help companies transform their hiring processes.

Randy Blatt, JazzHR's director of channel sales and customer success, says that while recruiting qualified candidates is never easy, in a saturated labor market it's more important than ever to have a system for developing and maintaining a pipeline of potential applicants.

“One of the things that we encourage is always recruiting and building a talent pipeline for whenever you have openings," Blatt says. A strong pipeline saves time and money and creates opportunities to cultivate prospects for later openings.

JazzHR provides the cloud-based tools that make it easy for small and midsize businesses to organize and manage an effective candidate pipeline, with automated processes for tracking, follow-up and collaboration as part of a year-round process.

Identifying the Need for a Better Way to Hire

Launched in 2009, JazzHR grew out of founder Don Charlton's frustration with trying to hire personnel for a marketing team at a time when most small companies were still using email to recruit. Charlton hunkered down in his basement and wrote the  code for what he originally called “The Resumator” and later became JazzHR. It was the first software company in the market focused strictly on recruiting, Blatt says.

Today, Pittsburgh-based JazzHR is an industry leader in SMB-focused SaaS recruiting solutions, with 4,500 customers and more than half a million hires to its credit, saving managers countless hours and keeping jobs filled at a cost that small and midsize businesses can afford.

Solutions that Keep Customers Coming Back 

Perhaps the clearest measure of success for the company is the fact that 95% of its customers renew. Here are a few of the reasons:

  • When a job is posted with JazzHR, it is automatically syndicated to 15 free job boards
  • There are no limits on the number of job listings, candidates or users
  • Transparent pricing, offering low rates through monthly or annual subscriptions
  • Workflow automation streamlines everything from phone screenings and interviews to evaluations and electronic job offers
  • Recruitment metrics and analytics allow clients to see where candidates are coming from and how long the hiring process takes

FBG Partnerships Focused on Client Success

When JazzHR and the FBG Holdings team began contemplating the idea of a partnership that would include FBG sister companies Payroll Tax Management, Cachet Financial Services and Time Rack, it quickly became clear that in addition to the natural fit between the services provided, our companies also share a commitment to first-rate customer support.

Like JazzHR, we grew our business by understanding that it's not enough to have the best technology in the industry if you don't also provide a great client experience. We grew by ensuring that our customer service was as reliable as our solutions. We grew by putting the needs of our clients first.
