The HR departments of companies both large and small are currently undergoing a makeover. New strategies are revamping the HR technology used. Certain industries are considering new hiring methods that may in fact help improve the hiring process. One of these methods is to use text messaging as a means of reaching out to a new crop of employees.

Think of the last time you received a text message. Did you immediately look down at your phone and at least read the content of the message? If you are like most phone owners, then you probably did just that. It is an addictive habit that most phone owners are incapable of ridding themselves of. This is a potential gold mine for HR departments. When they realize the full hiring potential that text messaging has, many HR departments will have no choice but to use this method.

At one point in time it was not possible to reach individuals via text message. The concept has only been in existence for a short period of time. Only recently has it even been seen as potentially acceptable to text message potential hires. Now, some companies are moving towards the idea full force.

An Opt-In Procedure Works Best

The best way to reach people with text messaging is to make the procedure an opt-in one. This means that those who are receiving a text message are doing so because they have asked to receive said message. No one who has not opted for text messages will receive them. As such, no one has to worry that their privacy or rights being infringed.

Companies see some very positive and important results. They reach out to a number of individuals that they may not have been able to reach in the past. They also receive a faster response rate than what they might have been able to if they were not using text messaging for recruiting purposes. For these reasons alone it should at least be investigated.
