Better Job Board Ads: 6 Ways To Think Like A Marketer & Hire Better

Posted by Olli Siebelt on Mar 24, 2015 8:30:00 AM

Companies new to using an applicant tracking systems (ATS systems) like TriNet Hire often have a common question: 

“I posted my jobs on the big job boards. Where are all the awesome candidates?”

Unfortunately, it’s not a “build it and they will come” system. A job ad is an ad, and a basic job description isn’t going to bring top talent to your door. You need to think like a marketer and handle your recruiting process more like marketing your product or service. You are marketing. You need to inspire the best candidates to compete for your open positions. 

Now that the economy appears to be in a steady recovery, people with sought after skills are becoming increasingly in demand, so top talent can afford to be selective. Again, "If we post it, they will come” won’t work. Invest in a thought provoking job ad and be selective about where you post it. The time and energy you put into your process will pay off when you’re flooded with fantastic candidates!

 Here are 6 ways to think like a marketer and recruit better:

TriNet Expense: Activity-Based Pricing Extended

Posted by Michelle Chegeni on Feb 18, 2015 7:00:00 AM

Do you have users who don't file expense reports monthly?

A few months ago, we announced a new feature called Activity-Based Pricing for all Corporate subscription plans (25 users or more).  Based on positive feedback, we are happy to announce that this feature is now available to all Team plans (10+ users).

The Activity-Based Usage subscription allows infrequent users of TriNet Expense to utilize the application and only be charged $15 when they submit an expense report for approval. 


Setting up activity-based pricing for your users is easy and completely free! Company Owners simply need to enable the add-on subscription in Settings > Company Settings > Pricing & Billing Info.   If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at support@trinetexpense.com

Thanks,

3 Tips for Posting to Major Job Boards

Posted by Olli Siebelt on Feb 10, 2015 7:30:00 AM

Here at TriNet Hire, our primary focus is making sure you hire the best candidates as quickly and easily as possible.

As part of our daily quality assurance routine, we’ve noticed that some of the jobs being created within TriNet Hire are NOT getting posted on select job boards we partner with.

This isn’t due to any technical glitches but rather that the job posts are not meeting best practice standards with how those job boards operate.

To ensure your jobs are always posted, here’s some helpful tips:

  • Use job titles for job titles only. Put the job specifics like salary, telecommuting options, remote location and things like that in the job description.
  • Keep your job locations specific. A format like City, State (San Francisco, CA) works best.
  • Don’t create multiple versions of the same job. Your jobs are generally posted with priority for 30 days. You don’t have to post them every few days and posting multiple instances of the same job is a sure way to get that post flagged as spam.

Indeed has a great blog article that expands on these best practices. It’s well worth bookmarking!

We hope this helps in your efforts to recruit and retain great talent. Got any tips of your own? We'd love to hear them!

IRS Announces 2014 Standard Mileage Rate

Posted by Eric Sikola on Dec 12, 2013 10:21:00 AM

On December 6th, 2013 the Internal Revenue Service issued Notice 2013-80. This annual document announced the 2014 standard mileage rates for business, charitable, medical, or moving expenses. Beginning January 1, 2014, the standard mileage rates for use of an automobile (which includes vans, cars, pickups or panel trucks) will be:

  • 56 cents per mile for business miles driven
  • 23.5 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations.

The rate for business miles is actually one-half cent down from the 2013 rate, mainly due to the cost of fuel decreasing from last year. When entering in mileage, an employee has the option of entering in an odometer change, miles driven, or can actually calculate the distance driven by using Google Maps directly from our application. When the miles driven are calculate by any of th

e above options, this is then automatically multiplied by the rate you have setup for your company. With ExpenseCloud, our system always defaults new users to the current IRS business millage reimbursement rate. Company owner can decide to change this rate, or have users select their own rate within our company settings section. To change your company mileage rates to comply with the new 2014 IRS rules, please go to Settings > Company Settings  and enter in .56. Once saved, all employees will have their accounts updated to this new rate.

ExpenseCloud Introduces Shared Platform for Accounting Integrations

Posted by Michelle Chegeni on Oct 30, 2013 10:41:00 AM

ExpenseCloud’s latest release features the ability to install multiple company files within one accounting integration. This feature benefits Administrator users who need to manage expense reporting for multiple companies or subsidiaries and prefer to do so from a single account. Company Owners and Administrators will need to share the integration to specific users with controlled permissions. Users will no longer have to install the integration separately on their individual account as the company owner/admin can enable the integration in the Manage Users settings. The following instructions will provide information on sharing integrations, allowing users to setup their own integrations, and setting up a secondary integration.

How to share the current integration:

1) Company Owners and Admins (who have an accounting integration already installed) can edit their current integration by viewing Settings > Personal Settings > Reports > Intacct / NetSuite / Quickbooks > Edit.

2) A new selection box is shown “Make Integration Visible to Company.” Please check this box if you would like to share the integration with specific users within your company. Click “save” to update your current integration.

Polycom’s Expense Report Scandal Shows Need for Expense Policy Enforcement

Posted by Michelle Chegeni on Jul 30, 2013 10:48:00 AM
