Bayt.com launches live chat
LiveHire service allows employers to contact potential recruits via a live chat service
Bayt.com is the first employment website in the Middle East region to create an online platform designed to allow jobseekers and employers to interact in real time over the internet using a live chat function called LiveHire.
The specialised employer-jobseeker chat solution allows job seekers to connect in real time with potential employers via the Bayt.com website, this is designed to aid both employers and job-seekers to find a correct match.
"Today employers are looking for immediate hiring solutions, and LiveHire is another ground breaking innovation in Bayt.com's recruitment arsenal that addresses the demands of the current employment market while setting precedent within the industry. As a leader in the recruitment domain we strive to introduce state-of-the-art services to make the process of matching employers and jobseekers faster, easier and more efficient. With LiveHire, we have created a unique employer-jobseeker space that will eliminate the time, cost and resources spent during screening and interviewing, and in turn generate more informed hiring decisions. Jobseekers will now have even closer contact with hiring employers and can be accessed instantly through the new smart channel," said Omar Tahboub, Bayt.com VP of Product.
LiveHire is available to any employer with an active Bayt.com search package for no additional cost and the service can initiate instant chat dialogue with jobseekers registered on the Bayt.com system. This is designed to allow employers to identify potential recruits and shortlist them while accessing their CVs, employers can then invite candidates to chat on the LiveHire system.
"Real-time and low cost screening solutions are no longer a luxury for today's recruiters, they are now necessary tools that enable employers to fill available positions quickly with the best possible candidate. We are not strangers to introducing technological innovations in the recruitment domain; in fact LiveHire is an addition to a series of pioneering technological innovations that Bayt.com has introduced to the region providing employers with more choice and reach in finding top candidates.
"The recent launch of the new Bayt.com JobSeeker Workspace which is the most avant-garde and functional job search dashboard in the industry today; as well as Bayt.com's Public Profiles, present the region's first foray into the highly critical interface between social networking and recruitment, and have firmly positioned Bayt.com as the first job site of its kind to integrate Google-style analytics and Facebook social wisdom into the job site model. LiveHire, along with our other platforms, such as Bayt.com Communities and Bayt.com Salary Calculator tool, have the potential to inform, transform and accelerate the recruitment process throughout the entire region," said Tahboub.
