Engaging With & Rehiring Furloughed Employees
For new talent or existing, we're here to help you stay connected. If your company has furloughed its workers, it's critical that your leadership stays as engaged as possible with out-of-work employees through helpful, consistent communications about where the business is going and when they can return to work. Our integrated communications tools make it easier than ever for HR and talent teams to reach out, reassure, and nurture for the future.
CREATE A PLACE FOR CONNECTION
A furlough period will test your company culture. Give your HR team what they need to inspire loyalty: a career site that gives out-of-work employees the resources they need now, with information that gives hope for the future. Career sites powered by iCIMS Attract can include easy access to hiring status updates, company information, employee resources, and a chatbot to answer questions 24/7.
HR teams feel the pressure to provide consistent communication to workers. Mass text campaigns - deployed right from your recruitment platform - help you reach out-of-work employees where they are.
Even during uncertain times, you can future-proof your pipeline for roles your business will need as it changes rapidly.
Strengthen your entire talent community with personalised text and email campaigns through iCIMS TextRecruit and iCIMS Nurture. When a need pops up for a specific role, capitalise on the well-trained and reliable talent of your workforce advocates: furloughed employees, gig workers, and company alumni.
REHIRE YOUR TEAM FOR NEW ROLES
Will your future workforce look different in terms of remote or contingent workers? Likely. Address your evolving business needs with flexible career sites that let you set up pages for returning workers who want to explore new roles in your business. Your process stays in motion as you re-engage team members with intelligent job matching, customised assessments, video interviews, and text campaigns. With more visibility into how internal talent pools align with current and future openings, everyone stays one step ahead.
When it's time to rehire laid off or furloughed employees, welcome each one as you would any employee: with a formal offer. Make sure you're ready with an automated solution to help handle the volume. iCIMS Offer fast tracks the process and limits inaccuracies and compliance risks.
GET BACK TO WORK, FASTER
Help furloughed employees during the readjustment period with personalised, rehire portals through iCIMS Preboard. Get ahead of your return to work plan with a go-to destination for workers to access important news, updated job descriptions, and the latest organisational chart.
If you're rehiring many at once, cutting manual tasks is critical. When employees can complete their digital employment forms through the portal before the first day back, everyone keeps moving. Use the iCIMS system to seamlessly transition those records over to your existing HR system for error-free preboard.
