MS Teams for the HR team

When opening for a new position, the countless amounts of resumes coming in can be difficult to organize and share among your HR colleagues. With teams, they can manage recruiting by sharing resumes and interview notes, all in order to keep track of candidates. Once a candidate is selected, they can also share new employee documents and set up a plan to onboard them as effectively as possible. But it doesn’t stop at hiring, with Teams the HR department can create a hub for the rest of the company. A hub where everyone can easily access company policies, fill in surveys, and attend training sessions though video conference.
