The hiring process can be:
If you’ve been through it before, you know the barriers to getting qualified candidates in the door. In a candidate market, it’s more important than ever to fill your positions promptly. If you’re looking to speed up the hiring process while still bringing in highly qualified professionals, we can help.
Recruit Smart, Not Hard
Rather than canvassing en masse to try to appeal to every job applicant, try a more focused approach. Know your hiring market. Millennials and Gen Xers, for example, desire flexibility. They want to work for a company with good values, a company that can create a supportive and diverse culture within the organization. Instead of posting a job listing that advertises your demands, try enticing candidates by sharing the perks the organization can offer. Play up the benefits of working with your company rather than creating a laundry list of your needs. You may quickly see a different type of candidate emerge.
Change Your Methods
Think about where you currently post jobs – maybe Monster and Indeed? To attract new talent, move your methods to where fresh candidates live. Post dynamic photos and videos to the most popular social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Marketing campaigns on social media are often cheaper and result in more hiring options. You should also consider hiring events to pool resources or start an employee referral program that rewards workers that bring in new hires.
ABH: Always Be Hiring
This principle is a hallmark of any industry that has frequent changes or deals with high turnover rates. To avoid being short-staffed, make it a policy to take resumes whenever they come to save time and money when you really need a new employee on site. Even if you don’t need to recruit, passively collecting resumes and applications will keep you prepared for when you need to hire in a hurry.
