2016 Onrec Online Recruitment Awards Finalist

Onrec 2016We are very happy to announce that Zao has yet again been nominated as a finalist for Onrec’s Online Recruitment Awards. Zao was nominated in the following three categories for the 2016 awards:

  1. The Best Online Candidate Experience
  2. Best Use of Mobile
  3. Innovative Use of Social Media in the Recruitment Process

Over the last year, Zao has continued to help organisations manage, automate and gamify their employee referral programs. Zao understands the importance of engaging employees in referrals, which remain the best source of hire in terms of quality and longevity on the job. There have been a number of recent advances at Zao regarding mobile, candidate experience and social media and we are thrilled to have been recongnised for our efforts.

Providing a great experience to candidates is one of the most important aspects of recruiting. After all, your candidates are often customers and it’s important to maintain a positive company image. Whether candidates are referred to apply for jobs directly on Zao or they are being redirected to apply on your company ATS, Zao ensures that candidates have the best possible experience. Zao will personally follow up with any candidate questions regarding the application process in order to ensure a successful application workflow.

A number of advancements have also been made to Zao mobile functionality including allowing candidates to apply from mobile devices. Zao currently provides a free app “Zao referrals” to all users, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Marketplace. All corporate jobs on Zao can be easily viewed from mobile devices, and employees can make referrals on the go.

Zao combines mobile recruiting and social media by allowing employees to share jobs on all major social networks, and tracks all sharing and any referrals that come through those channels! Zao allows employees to choose which social networks they want to share jobs on, no matter where they are in the world.

It’s an honour that Onrec recognises Zao’s growth and achievements within the Online Recruitment Industry. We would like to thank Onrec for hosting the awards and for their consideration and nominations. Congratulations to all of the other finalists in Onrec’s 2016 Online Recruitment Awards, we wish them all the best of luck!
