Thousands of recruiters set to access digital signatures

In a move aimed at meeting the demands of the modern workplace, a new partnership is set to give thousands of recruiters and HR teams expanded access to digital signatures.

JobAdder, an international recruitment technology company, and Secured Signing, one the most trusted digital signature providers, have joined forces to make it easier for agencies and HR teams to run an online recruitment process.

Brett Iredale, JobAdder CEO, said recruiters could now offer candidates and clients the ability to complete and sign forms online as part of the new collaboration.

It’s an alliance that seeks to create a convenient, positive recruitment process, said Iredale.

JobAdder works with recruitment companies and corporate HR departments across New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. The company offers a suite of recruitment technology services across the hiring process, including job posting software, applicant tracking software, and timesheet software. These services are used by 11,000 people each day.

In a competitive recruitment industry, providing a positive user experience was an advantage, said Iredale.

“Our clients have set a high bar in the recruitment industry. They know to remain competitive, they have to offer an easy, engaging experience for clients and candidates. This collaboration means our clients can send important business documents like contracts, onboarding forms, and quotes for online signing. Candidates can sign forms from wherever they are, from any device.”

With the new integration, recruiters and HR teams can:

  • Send documents digitally, eliminating the need for printing, scanning, and emailing
  • Autofill forms from JobAdder records, so there’s no manual data entry
  • Turn forms into reusable digital templates that push data into the JobAdder database
  • Set automatic signing reminders, reducing manual follow-ups and speeding up the signing process
  • Create workflow triggers that send package of documents when a status changes in JobAdder for example.

As part of the agreement, JobAdder clients can design workflows for routine business processes, like hiring, said Iredale.

Now, documents are sent to candidates at the right time, automatically, driving down the time spent on routine, repetitive tasks.

“Together with Secured Signing we’re giving our clients new tools to improve productivity. We know this partnership will help our clients better serve candidates and clients”

Secured Signing provides the most comprehensive digital signatures services for JobAdder.

News of the Secured Signing partnership comes as market reports forecast a boom in the adoption of digital signatures.

Alongside this surge in growth, concerns around security and privacy have emerged.

We knew we could rely on a solution with a high level of trust,” said Iredale.

To combat data theft and tampering, Secured Signing uses Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology: the highest level of security. The PKI protocol makes forgery impossible. There’s built-in proof of the signer’s identity, the signature origin and time of the signature.

Gal Thompson, CEO of Secured Signing, said recruiters and HR teams who embraced technology stood out from the competition.

“In the modern job market, there’s a growing body of research that shows candidate experience is key. All successful companies understand this.

“Digital technologies have changed client and candidate expectations. We’re thrilled to work with JobAdder to help their clients meet these modern expectations to build an ever-better recruitment process.”
