The kind of cars anyone my age bought when they were young didn’t come with air conditioning, electric windows or even a radio as standard. USB points didn’t even exist! They started off looking (kind of) nice but by the time we’d bolted on our non-factory fitted extras they looked more like Frankenstein cars. But buying a new car today is very different as they come with so much as standard and are more reliable, economical and efficient.
Having first built an ATS in 1998 I have been somewhat disappointed at how slowly most ATS vendors have evolved in comparison to car manufacturers. I guess I’m also slightly envious of product teams today who have so much information to work on when I had nothing. We pretty much made it up as we went and had to guess what we thought the market would want.
I’ve previously written about the history of the ATS in my first post then what makes an ATS social in my second post. And whilst the market has been evolving slowly Cornerstone developers have been beavering away to build a new ATS that is fit for today based on what is wanted, needed and used. Less Frankenstein, more Ironman 3. Saving the world from the ATS bad guys.
As Cornerstone Recruiting Cloud is even younger than Facebook or Twitter you’ll see many familiar social features that are entirely intuitive to every user of any level. I can’t of course share every little secret but in order for me to be able to write this blog post I was allowed to look under the bonnet to see the social engine that lies in wait.
My top 3
No more system e-mails. One thing I love about Facebook is their messaging system. All messages are in one place attached to the right friend. No more digging around looking for endless texts or e-mails. Recruiting Cloud takes the same approach to the candidate record making it easier for everyone to find every message a candidate has received but in a social format. Comment streams anyone?
The job advert. Imagine being able to create the perfect job advert that converts better than ever before. Measuring the video version vs. the image version. Red apply button vs. blue apply button. Facebook likes vs. LinkedIn followers. All the tools that marketers have so that you can track every action rather than rely on gut instinct. You no longer have to just imagine.
LinkedIn. The integration with LinkedIn is seriously impressive. From simple job posting to intelligent network matching it’s what recruiters have been waiting for. But it goes way beyond this. I’d love to tell you more but I don’t need to because Cornerstone will.
Welcome to the very social ATS

How compliance is the foundation for an inclusive culture
We often think of compliance as something we have to do on the way to doing the things we would rather do – but here are five key compliance issues that link to larger initiatives that can help you create a stronger culture and a more inclusive workplace.
How modern compliance content drives real growth
Training content in compliance and DEIB tends to fall short. Cornerstone’s modern compliance content is built on four pillars that promote meaningful reflection and action.
Overcoming the many costs of non-compliance
Non-compliance is costly. Not only does it often mean hefty fines, but it also has the potential to hurt an organizations reputation, decrease the morale of its employees and restrict its ability to perform key functions. What makes compliance particularly challenging is that laws and regulations are ever-changing. New York, for example, recently introduced stricter sexual harassment legislation and now requires every New York employer to have in place, and distribute to its employees, a sexual harassment policy that meets its very specific requirements in accordance with the law.
