How to work with the data quality in Carerix

Updated over a week ago

It is a hot topic; data quality. Who wouldn't want an ATS system filled to the brim with as much valid data as possible from Candidates, Clients and Contacts.

The Carerix system is the tool that is used daily. But how good is the data quality of the files really? But above all, how as an administrator to set up the Carix system in such a way that good data quality is enforced? This article discusses this.

Research shows that "as many as 92% of the ATS users surveyed suspect that their data is incomplete / inaccurate". Calculations show that there is “15% average profit more to be gained by using qualitative data compared to incomplete data”.

Bad data is at the expense of using the system, but even worse, it has a negative effect on the customer / candidate experience. Careful data management increases sales and provides more accurate reports. Applying the correct work process settings in Carerix will make the outcome of data more reliable and predictable. The result is more control over data precisely because of this improved quality. In addition, valuable data is often used to gain competitive advantage; "Measuring is knowing" after all.

In this article, tools, institutions and work processes are identified based on the recruitment process that can positively influence data quality.

Correct registration via the website provides the indispensable date of consent on which compliance with the retention periods is based
