LinkedIn launches ‘Scheduler’ to ease hiring process

LinkedIn

San Francisco, Feb 14: Professional social network site LinkedIn on Wednesday launched a new tool called “Scheduler” that will help ease the hiring process both for recruiters and candidates as well as avoid fallouts.

“LinkedIn Scheduler” automates initial interview scheduling for recruiters and candidates, directly via InMail.

The new tool would help candidates and recruiters save time spent on scheduling a meeting and help recruiters focus their energies on hiring strategically and onboarding the best candidate, the Microsoft-owned company said in a statement.

Using this feature, candidates or recruiters can reach each other via InMail to see one’s calendar availability and reserve an interview time that works best for both.

It also gives candidates the liberty to feed in their contact information to accelerate this process.

“Our goal is to help you spend less time on the back-and-forth-and a lot more time delighting, advising, and helping candidates make the decision to join your company,” said Peter Rigano, Senior Product Manager at LinkedIn, in a blogpost late on Tuesday.

“LinkedIn ‘Scheduler’ is just the latest way that we’re working to make recruiters more productive, powerful, and personal,” Rigano added.

To use the feature, recruiters first need to automatically provide availability via InMail by syncing “Scheduler” to Office 365 or Google calendar.

This would automatically set the availability for potential interview times.

Then, using a new “InMail” message, recruiters can easily send a scheduling link directly to the candidate of interest.

The link shares a real-time view of the recruiter’s calendar availability with candidates who can then choose what time works best for them, add their phone number and confirm the meeting.

Further, advance settings allows recruiters to manage preferences such as time zones, availability, length of meetings and same-day meetings.

Cyberattack on Dr Reddy’s Labs sharp reminder to strengthen digital infrastructure: Analysts

Most of the Indian pharma manufacturers are increasingly focused on digitisation and process automation to improve operational efficiencies.

New Delhi, Oct 24 : The cyberattack on Dr Reddy’s Labs came as a sharp reminder to strengthen its digital infrastructure and tighten cyber security control measures, according to analysts.

According to a report by HSBC, damage control and restoration of operations is crucial. It said Dr Reddy’s is a front runner among peers in terms of investing for digital transformation initiatives as well as for new age cyber securities technologies.

“Thus, the cyberattack came as a sharp reminder to strengthen its digital infrastructure and tighten cyber security control measures. While it expects no major operational impact, a quick update on damage control and restoration of operations will in our view be crucial to validate resilience of its systems,” the report added.

Dr Reddy’s faced a major data breach yesterday which triggered a shutdown of its key facilities. The company experienced data breaches in servers in the UK, the US, India, Brazil and Russia. Afterwards, the company released a statement which said that in the wake of a detected cyberattack, it had isolated all data centre services to implement preventative measures. Dr Reddy’s anticipates all services to be up within 24 hours and does not expect any major impact on operations due to the cyberattack.

Most of the Indian pharma manufacturers are increasingly focused on digitisation and process automation to improve operational efficiencies.

With increasing digitisation, data breaches and cyberattacks are common place, with the pharmaceuticals industry one of the sectors most impacted, after healthcare, energy and finance as per a study by Ponemon Institute (a Michigan-based research institute dedicated to data privacy, protection, and information security policy), and IBM Security.

For example, Merck faced a major cyberattack in June 2017 that led to disruption of its worldwide operations and sales losses of $260 million due to nonfulfillment of orders, and it incurred incremental costs (incl. remediation costs) of $285 million in 2017.

“The risk of cyberattacks on the pharma industry is further amplified by remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, pharma manufacturers (incl. DRRD) need to invest further and strengthen cyber security systems to avoid or minimise operational disruptions, high costs of control, and to contain damages and any potential lawsuits or regulatory penalties,” the report said.

BMW G Motorrad

BMW Motorrad recently launched new G 310 R and G 310 GS bikes at ₹2.45 lakh and ₹2.85 lakh, respectively. All prices are ex-showroom, India. This means that both the entry-level BMW bikes are now significantly cheaper than their BS4 counterparts. This has been done to make G 310 twins more popular than before and attract better sales. But besides reducing the price, the German two-wheeler maker has made several functional and design tweaks to the motorcycles. Here’s a low down on how different the new G 310 twins are when compared to their previous models.

The new G 310 R and G 310 GS bikes look sportier than their predecessors, thanks to a couple of new body panels and all-new LED headlamp cluster with LED DRL. Both the bikes are also available in new colour schemes; while G 310 GS is available in Rallye Style, Polar White, and a special 40 Years GS black-yellow colour scheme, the G 310 R can be had in Style Sport, Cosmic Black, and Polar White colour options. Another change with the bikes is that they now get an adjustable clutch lever.

New BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS: Features

BS6 BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS use the same LCD instrument panel that offers all the essential readouts. The motorcycles now also get ride-by-wire system for improved throttle response. Sadly, the bikes still do not get smartphone connectivity.

New BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS: Specs

Both the bikes are now powered by a BS6-compliant 313 cc, liquid-cooled engine that generates 34 bhp at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm at 7,500 of peak torque. This engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox with slipper-clutch as standard. This means that mechanically, the motorcycles are no different than their predecessors but the addition of slipper clutch makes it easier to downshift, especially at high speeds.

Furthermore, the new G 310 twins use the same suspension setup — 41 mm USD forks with mono-shock — and braking hardware — 300 mm front and 240 mm rear disc brakes with dual-channel ABS — as their BS4 models.

Samsung Galaxy M51

Seoul, Oct 21 : South Korean tech giant Samsung has filed a patent for a smartphone with pop-out display design that purportedly houses additional speakers.

Samsung filed the patent with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation). The 35-page document, applied in February this year, has been published on October 15, reports LetsGoDigital.

According to the patent design, the pop-out screen will come outwards from the top panel and will be supported by hinges at the centre of the Samsung smartphone.

Additionally, the speaker grills will be placed at the edges of the pop-out screen, the patent designs show.

To achieve this form factor, the Samsung phone will use a plastic polymer panel that is also available on the original Galaxy Fold.

The company also filed a patent for three foldable smartphone designs with cutouts for inner cameras.

The company last month introduced Galaxy Z Fold2 that sports a 6.2-inch cover screen and a 7.6-inch main screen when unfolded.
