Google has pushed its way into the HR software space with Google Hire, a tool that helps SMBs recruit talent. The idea behind Hire is to give companies a platform for tracking progress in hiring a candidate — including email communications, interview notes, etc. With Hire, companies no longer have to manually track these details.
Hire is integrated into G Suite, Google’s collection of cloud-based productivity tools. Hire’s target market is companies with fewer than 1,000 employees.
