Recruiting and applicant tracking system

Gain more time and talent with powerful recruitment software and applicant tracking

No process may have as much impact on business success as hiring. So why are recruiting and applicant tracking systems often so manual and inefficient? Think of how many top candidates may be missed due to unorganized and error-prone methods. There’s a smarter way. Paychex Flex® Hiring gives your recruiting and applicant tracking efforts the power and reach they deserve, helping automate tasks so you can dedicate your time to finding the best candidates for your open positions.

  • Simplify key tasks and improve communication

    Standardize processes for job postings, interview scheduling, and hiring workflows for more efficient, consistent results, and communicate clearly with applicants and hiring managers throughout the process.

  • Potentially lower your cost per hire

    The efficiencies you’ll gain through paperless automation – and a process designed to help improve accuracy and time savings for HR and applicants alike – could save you more with each hire.

  • Let applicants apply how and when they want

    Applicant self-service through Paychex Flex Hiring enables job seekers to submit applications anytime through a mobile phone or from a desktop computer. Rather than call you about the status of their application, they can simply log in to the system.
