The Recruiter’s Roundtable

Do you remember the Rolodex? It’s a desktop accessory which looks like a circular file of cards on which people’s names and addresses were maintained. Well, believe it or not, recruiters used to formerly use them during the recruitment process. But that was a long time ago. Today, technology, analytics, and employee-centricity has changed the game for recruitment.

This piece digs into the hiring process and how it can be made more efficient for your organisation.

What does hiring entail?

The first thing that we need to understand is the operational definition of hiring. Hiring refers to the process of identifying, attracting, evaluating, and engaging potential employees to fill positions within an organisation. The ultimate goal of hiring is to bring in individuals who possess the necessary skills and experience, and are a possible cultural fit to help the organisation achieve its goals and objectives. We must also ensure that the hiring process is carried out efficiently to ensure the organisation functions at its best.

Getting the best our of your hiring process

Every organisation has a different hiring procedure. It comprises methods which are necessary to find, choose, and hire a new employee. You can locate competent people quickly and effectively with a well-designed recruitment and selection process, which also guarantees a positive experience for both candidates and recruitment teams.

It must be carried out with attention and dedication in order to build an efficient procedure. A simplified method necessitates ongoing review.

Let’s walk through the essential components that make the entire process organised:

  • Before you start the recruitment process, it's important to have a clear understanding of the job requirements, responsibilities, and qualifications needed for the position. This will help you attract the right candidates and save time by screening out those who don't meet the criteria.

  • Consider using Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and other technology tools to automate repetitive tasks, such as resume screening and scheduling interviews. This will help streamline the process and reduce the amount of time spent on administrative tasks.

  • Encourage your current employees to refer your organisation to friends and acquaintances who might be a good fit for the open position. Employee referrals can be a highly efficient way to find qualified candidates and can increase diversity in the hiring process. Not only are these candidates likely to have the necessary skills and experience, but they are also likely to be a good cultural fit for the organisation.

  • Attracting top talent requires offering competitive compensation and benefits packages. Make sure you understand market rates and what your competitors are offering in order to remain competitive.

  • Develop a standardised interview process that includes a combination of behavioural and situational questions. This will help ensure that all candidates are evaluated fairly and consistently, and will also help you identify the most qualified candidates.

  • Lastly, once you have identified the best candidate for the job, make a prompt offer. This will help ensure that you don't lose top talent to another organisation and will also reduce the time spent on the recruitment process. By making a prompt offer, you can also increase the efficiency of your recruitment process and reduce the amount of time spent on follow-up and negotiation.

A lot of effort goes into creating a successful and effective recruitment process. Afterall, organisations have come a long way from Rolodexes and filing cabinets.
