17 Lesson 1: Managing Recruiting Settings The goal for this lesson is to provide general instruction about managing your organization s recruiting settings. OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: Edit Company Contact Information Edit Return Address Edit Candidate Profile Settings Edit a Job Requisition Disable Add Role Manage Interview Central Manage Private Postings MANAGING RECRUITING SETTINGS MAIN CONCEPTS Most of this is internal facing information, except for the company contact information, which is external facing information about the company. Accessing Recruiting Settings pages can be accomplished using OneAdmin: Navigate to Company Processes & Cycles Click Recruiting SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
18 Click Manage Recruiting Settings Recruiting Settings Page The Managing Recruiting Settings page consists of several sections. Each of these sections controls a specific element of the recruiting settings. Figure 1. Company Contact Information section The Company Contact Information section (Figure 1) is the external facing information about the company, which shows up in the career sites. This information is typically set up during implementation and not touched again. The Candidate Response Address field is also posted on the external career sites SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
19 Figure 2. Return Address Information section The Return Address Information section (Figure 2) enables you to override the default company address. You can lock it down so only this address will display on correspondence back to candidates, or you can make it editable so recruiters can change it to their own address. Best Practice: Best practice is to have the Return Address display something candidate-friendly. Use this return address when: External candidates sign up to create a new account (with verification turned on) Internal/external candidates applied to a job An application status change occurs for internal/external candidates individual changes and with mass update External candidates use the forgot password tool Job alerts notifications for an expired job alert, invalidated job alert, and new job alert Another example of when the return might be used would be if a candidate fails a pre-screening questionnaire and is disqualified. The candidate is moved to an auto disqualified SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
20 status, which triggers an to be sent to each candidate announcing this disqualification. Select the Delay s checkbox (Figure 2) and enter a number (for hours) to prevent candidates from learning exactly when they were disqualified (for example, immediately following an interview) so as not to discourage a candidate. Best Practice: Best practice is to set delay over 20 hours and to stagger this to an odd number of hours (such as 21, 27, or 39) rather than an even number (such as 24 or 48) so that it does not seem automated to the candidate. Figure 3. Candidate Profile Settings section The Candidate Profile Settings section (Figure 3) enables candidates to enter multiple lines of data such as previous work experience or educational history on their candidate profile. A candidate s most recent work history is highlighted in the candidate profile. The MOST RECENT values in the background elements enable recruiters to focus on the most recent information. Recruiters can add comments to candidate profiles, as well as import comments from the application process to a candidate s profile SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
21 Figure 4. Applicant Profile Settings section The Applicant Profile Settings section (Figure 4) allows an admin to hide any skipped statuses in the application audit trail. SuccessFactors audit tracks every move that a candidate makes through the hiring process. For example, if a candidate replied to a requisition, and was moved from Replied status to Reviewed status to Interviewed status; and the recruiting team liked the candidate so much that they wanted to skip the second interview and move the candidate directly to Offer status, the audit trail will show that by default. The second interview will appear with no dates. This can be hidden by selecting the above checkbox (Figure 4). Figure 5. Candidate Search Settings section The Candidate Search Settings section (Figure 5) is a system performance configuration. You can set a threshold based on your system s size and performance (for example 30, 60, or 90 days) and have a message display a warning to users of a potential delay in the completion of their search. If a recruiter searches on all SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
22 candidates who have applied in the last 120 days and you this set to 90, a message will display warning the user that the limit has been set to 90 days. A company with thousands of candidates may choose a low value because the larger the date range, the larger the returned number of candidates. An organization should strive to strike a balance between system performance and number of candidates returned. Figure 6. Job Requisition section The Job Requisition section (Figure 6) provides administrators with a few decision points about configuring requisitions. Enable change tracking and display for Job Requisition data and Job Postings SuccessFactors has an audit trail for requisitions similar to the audit trail for applicants. This provides a detailed view of the audit trail and captures information such as who made changes to a requisition status and when. For example, if data is changed from Talent Management to Human Resources. Use originator s preferred language as the default language of a new job requisition 2012 SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
23 For companies that have a multilingual environment, the job requisition language will default to the language of the Operator. The requisition must be configured to support the Operator s locale for this to work. Allow forwarding of candidates to unposted jobs This feature provides the ability for operator s to find jobs that are not posted when forwarding candidates. (Source internal candidates for a job requisition before posting.) This is a legal issue for some companies, and they prefer not to enable this option because of fair hiring practices in their country that make it illegal to place a candidate in a job unless that job has been made public for application by other candidates. Enable private posting of jobs This feature enables the private postings of jobs. For example, if you have a confidential executive search in the process, you may not want to post that you are hiring a CEO. A URL to a private posting of the job will be available to send to candidates via , even if the job is not searchable to candidates internally or externally(this requires some XML setup). Show job description to Applicants even after the job is taken down This feature allows candidates to use the print preview option on Job Descriptions to look at jobs they previously applied to or that were previously posted. Disable Add Role on Forward to Requisition dialogue This is enabled when an internal user finds a good candidate and wants to forward them on to Requisition. SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
24 Figure 7. Interview Central section The Interview Central section (Figure 7) allows you to decide whether to enable document attachments on your interview feedback forms or Interviewer Notes. Figure 8. Offer Approval section The Offer Approval section (Figure 8) varies from the Requisition, Application, and Candidate Profile sections, where you can decide on a field by field level which fields are read and which are write. In this section several of the fields are hard-coded as read or write fields. The Job Code Entity field enables an admin to autopopulate and edit additional fields SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
25 Figure 9. Instructions The Instructions section (Figure 9) is comprised of a text editor which enables an admin to place text above the job requisitions list in multiple languages (based on the language selected in your profile). SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.

31 Lesson 2: Managing Recruiting Groups This lesson provides an overview of how to manage recruiting groups. Effectively managing your organization s recruiting groups makes it easier for you to work with large groups of people, reducing the amount of time spent on administrative tasks. OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to: Copy and modify a recruiting group Create a recruiting group Delete a recruiting group RECRUITING GROUPS MAIN CONCEPTS You can use dynamic groups (for example, selections of employees) to limit the scope of employees that can be set as recruiters, hiring managers, sourcers, or coordinators on job requisitions (job reqs). During configuration, your Professional Services or Technical Services consultant can associate a group with an operator role (for example, recruiter) on the requisition template. You can select which employees will be part of that group. In the XML for a requisition template, it is possible to tie a restriction so that users can only pick from a specific group of SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
32 authorized recruiters. This helps prevent end users from selecting non-authorized recruiters. The Manage Recruiting Groups page is accessed using OneAdmin, by: Navigating to Company Processes & Cycles Click Recruiting Click Manage Recruiting Groups Manage Recruiting Groups Page The Manage Recruiting Groups page (Figure 10) lets you create and edit dynamic groups for the Recruiting module. Consult your implementation team for information on uses of groups in your instance. A Recruiting Group is a set of business rules that defines a group of users. Recruiting groups limit the pool of users that can be selected in a given role on a requisition, if that role was tied to the group during the configuration process in implementation. Recruiting groups consist of one or more people pools. People pools allow you to manage which people belong to which recruiting groups. Each people pool is defined by the values you select in one or more categories. Categories consist of search criteria that allow you to select groups of people who share a common demographic feature such as city, country, job code, gender, or hire date SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
33 Through the clever use of categories and people pools, you can create recruiting groups that ideally suit your specific needs. Figure 10. Manage Recruiting Groups page How Do I Create a Recruiting Group? Define the People Pool Enter a group name. Start defining your people pool. For example, to define a group of all users hired before October 1, 2009, select the Hire Date field category in the drop down titled Pick a category. Based on the definition of your people pool, select the people for your group. You can make multiple selections within a single category, and you can use multiple categories. For example, to define a group of "All the engineers and product managers in San Mateo," establish the group with two categories as follows: Pick category Department from the dropdown titled Pick a category. A popup with a list of departments will be presented. Select Engineering and Professional Services from the list of departments. Select the Add Another Category button. SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
34 Pick category Location. A popup with a list of locations will be presented. Select San Mateo from the list of locations. Multiple People Pools Each group can have multiple people pools. People pools are used to identify people who meet your criteria. For example, let's say you have two different offices: Office A and Office B. Each office has a Sales team and a Finance team. If you want to create a recruiting group that includes all sales and finance personnel from both offices, use one pool, and configure to find all people in either role (sales or finance) and either location (Office A or Office B). Use multiple pools when only some people fit in each search criteria. For example, you should use multiple pools if you only want to include sales employees from Office A and finance employees from Office B. In this case, you would create a recruiting group that includes: One people pool of sales employees from Office A Another people pool of finance employees from Office B 2012 SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
35 Figure 11. Example of People Pools Team View The Team View category allows the definition of hierarchical groups with multiple levels, even when using Matrix, HR and Custom reporting relationships. For example, it is possible to define a group two levels deep using the Matrix Reporting relationship in the following fashion: "Carla Grant's Matrix Reports, and the Direct Reports of Carla's Matrix Reports". This would appear as follows: SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
36 Figure 12. Example of Matrix Reports and Direct Reports Locking Group Membership Group definitions are basically stored queries. Their membership is therefore dynamic. The number of people in the group today can be different than the number of people in the group tomorrow. For example, if a group has been defined as "Everyone in the Engineering department" and if a new person is hired tomorrow, the membership is augmented by one. If the membership of the group must not change, it is possible to lock the group membership. This will save the list of users that meet the group criteria at the time the group is locked. To edit the membership, unlock the group. Note: Unlocking a group will lose the locked membership, and the group will return to being dynamic SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin
37 From the Manage Recruiting Groups screen, you can perform the following functions on your recruiting groups: Table 1. Manage Recruiting Groups Tasks Task Edit Copy Delete Create Perform this task when: You need to change the membership of a certain group of people. You want to create a new group that s based on members in an existing group. This can save you a lot of time over creating a new group. When you no longer need a group. You need a new group of people and you don t have an existing group you can copy and alter to suit your needs. Recruiting Groups are tied to the user who creates them; a user viewing Admin > Recruiting Groups cannot see the Recruiting Groups set up under another user s profile. Best Practice: Best practice is to set up all Recruiting Groups under a single master administrative user (that will never be deactivated out of your system), and only change the groups by proxying into that master administrative user. SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
38 Job Aid: Copy and Modify a Recruiting Group 1 Navigate to Administration Tools > Company Processes & Cycles > Recruiting 2 Select Manage Recruiting Groups. 3 Select the recruiting group you want to edit using the preceding procedure. 4 After you select the group, click the Copy button SuccessFactors, Inc SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin

You re now ready to manage the group you just copied. 7 Select the recruiting group you want to edit by clicking the Choose a Group field s dropdown menu and selecting the group you want to edit. SuccessFactors Recruiting Admin SuccessFactors, Inc.
40 8 After you select the group, click the Edit button. 9 When SuccessFactors displays the Group Definition form, you can choose new members for your group or exclude others. 10 The current group, Recruiters, currently only has one category of people in it: all people whose job code is HR REC.
