Qualified electronic signatures

An electronic signature can be used by a company when hiring an employee to facilitate the signing of necessary documents and job contracts with the employee. The use of an electronic signature became especially relevant after the coronavirus pandemic, when recruiters had to hire employees remotely and it was not always possible to send documents by mail. However, this type of signature is also useful when hiring team members from abroad, because it saves time and resources on sending documents.

In modern HRM systems, the function of a qualified (valid within the legal framework of the country) electronic signature is included in the toolkit and can be used in conjunction with other recruiting functions to ease the routine for hiring specialists and candidates.
