- Eco-friendly businesses look to keep their HR processes green by going paperless with iCIMS-
HAZLET, N.J. (February 3, 2010) – iCIMS, the 2nd largest provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition solutions, announced today an influx of green companies selecting the iCIMS Talent Platform for their end-to-end Talent Management needs. World Resources Institute, Wind Capital Group, and Zipcar are just a few of the green companies to join the over 800 clients that utilize iCIMS as an eco-friendly alternative to the normally paper-intensive HR processes.
Forecasted to be a growing industry in 2010, the recent onset of green companies turning to iCIMS for their talent management needs is due in large part to the Talent Platform’s ability to eliminate paper-heavy and time-consuming HR processes through automation. From candidate management processes like requisition management and onboarding, to employee management solutions like employee data management and surveys; the iCIMS Talent Platform enables organizations from all industries and of all sizes to reduce their carbon footprint through environmentally friendly automation, while equipping them with the best tools to support influxes in hiring. With tools like iCIMS’ iForms engine, organizations can convert any paper document (like W-4 forms or Performance Appraisals) into a fully searchable, reportable file within the platform. Additionally, HR can trigger requests for employees to fill out the iForms, which route via email. Upon completion the form is automatically stored within the employee file of the iCIMS system – eliminating the need to ever print or store the myriad of documents associated with an employee’s lifecycle.
Though flexible enough for any HR process, the iCIMS Talent Platform is especially ideal for facilitating the normally paper-heavy onboarding process. Through iCIMS' Talent Platform, HR professionals can coordinate the logistics of a new employee's first few days on the job, including a self-service portal for completion of post-hire forms, scheduling of employee orientation, internal notification to key parties, and more. Both eco-friendly and efficient, iCIMS’ onboarding tools enable businesses to create a positive transition for new employees without the hassle of printing and filing documents each step of the way.
The recent trend is also due in part to iCIMS’ own environmentally conscious business practices. As a recipient of the NJBIZ Green Leadership Awards and a finalist in the American Business Awards for Best Corporate Environmental Responsibility Program, iCIMS is committed to green initiatives in both business best-practices and corporate responsibility. From iCIMS’ iCARE program, which enables employees to support a clean environment through donations of time, talent, or money - to purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates to offset electric usage, iCIMS is dedicated to creating a cleaner and healthier environment. Additionally, iCIMS has joined the Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program that seeks to increase the use of clean, renewable energy sources among leading U.S. organizations. Furthermore, in conjunction with the iCARE program, iCIMS has adopted a nearby beach through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) in a demonstration of continuing commitment to the environment. Under this program, volunteers can adopt a beach and conduct biannual beach cleanups in the Spring and Fall to remove debris that threatens the environment. iCIMS also offers an iCARE discount to firms that are clearly committed to reducing reliance on non-renewable energy. Organizations that demonstrate a commitment to solar, wind, and ethanol energy sources are eligible for iCARE contract discounts when they partner with iCIMS for their HR technology needs.
Colin Day, iCIMS' president and CEO, expressed enthusiasm over the recent influx of green companies turning to the SaaS provider. “As an environmentally-conscious company, we really appreciate the work that these organizations do. Giving back to the environment continues to be one of iCIMS’ defining initiatives, and we are thrilled to partner with companies that share this same passion.”
