Deputy launches AI-powered  HR Platform to Transform Hiring and Onboarding Experience

  • Mobile-first approach to connect employers and shift workers/hospitality staff / retail staff/care staff
  • AI speeds up time to recruit, onboard, and organise first shifts for new team members
  • New partnership with Indeed widens recruitment reach

London, 12 September 2023 - Deputy, the leading employee management platform for shift workers, has announced the launch of Deputy HR to offer a complete one-stop recruitment and HR system for businesses with shift workers.

In today's fast-moving world, a mobile-first approach is essential for SMEs to find and connect with the right talent quickly. The new platform is a game-changer in making best-in-class recruitment and onboarding technology accessible to shift workers and employers of shift workers.

Deputy HR streamlines the hiring process for employers and improves the experience for employees. Harnessing the power of AI, the platform helps employers to write job ads faster, automatically shortlist candidates based on qualifications, conduct pre-screening assessments, automate scheduling of interviews, and even enable applicants to record video introductions on mobile to support their applications. 

"By integrating the power of AI, Deputy HR provides an innovative and seamless experience for businesses and job seekers that haven’t typically had access to mobile-based experiences like this," said Deputy SVP Jon Wilson. "The technology powering this product enhances the overall recruitment experience and enables managers to engage with potential candidates faster in a more interactive, personable way.”

"With the launch of Deputy HR we are transforming the way employers recruit talent and integrate new team members into their business," said Wilson. "We’re excited to empower our customers with a solution that not only simplifies recruitment but also helps to ensure inclusivity throughout the process."

Businesses can easily create and manage job postings, track applicants, and collaborate with hiring managers to make informed decisions. It also generates QR codes for businesses to use in offline and online posters, allowing candidates to instantly view available job listings from the specific business, eliminating the need for laborious job searches.

Deputy HR will also offer employers the ability to post roles on popular job platforms such as Indeed, further expanding the reach of job listings to a wider audience. 

"Our partnership with Indeed opens up new ways for our customers to reach potential candidates," says Wilson. "We're excited to offer sponsored job posts on Indeed, giving businesses a competitive edge in today's tight labour market."

The onboarding process can often be time-consuming and overwhelming for both the employer and the new hire. Deputy HR simplifies this process by providing a centralised hub for all onboarding tasks, including document collection and employee training. 

Businesses can securely store and retrieve employee documents, such as contracts, certifications, and performance reviews, all in one place. The platform also offers advanced search and filtering options, making it easy to find and access the necessary documents whenever they are needed. 

Deputy HR empowers leaders to better manage operations, increase productivity, and deliver positive employee experiences in every community.
