Vancouver’s Rectxt announced this week that they are giving away their text recruiting platform for free to recruiters who are hiring essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis.
The bootstrapped HR Tech startup has created a Chrome extension that allows recruiters to instantly send text messages and launch text campaigns from any website, customer relationship management platform, or applicant tracking system.
“In the space of a few weeks, we’ve witnessed hiring grinding to a halt for most industries around the world and thousands of recruiters being laid off as a result,” Rectxt co-founder Brian Thompson writes.
“However, the good news is that there are still a few ‘pockets’ of essential-service industries where recruiters have never been busier – and it is within these essential service industries that recruiters have never been more important.”
Rectxt has created an Essential Hiring Plan which gives 2 months of free Rectxt access to recruiters who are hiring roles related to essential services. There is no long-term obligation, you can cancel anytime and you don’t require any IT support to get going.
Whether you’re hiring healthcare workers or grocery store clerks, you should check out Rectxt’s offer to reduce your time-to-hire. You can be texting essential service candidates within minutes of signing up.
