Recruitment processes can be complicated even when there is one position to hire for, let alone more than one.
There are multiple steps to the way most companies currently hire, and it takes more time and energy than it needs to.
Here are the ways you can keep your process organised and more efficient:
If the vacancy is there because someone has left, assess whether this role needs to be filled with a replacement. If the company is expanding and a new role is being created completely, work out how much this role is necessary.
Have clear job descriptions written up before you start to hire. This way you won’t need to rewrite job ads each time you hire the position and you know exactly what the role requires.
You can keep your recruitment all in one place and manage it easily. Rather than having paper resumes, digital resumes and your recruitment plan all in separate places, you can manage the whole thing online.
Once you’ve shortlisted candidates keep them separate from those whose applications you have rejected.
Include a phone interview to start off your process so you can be sure you have the right people coming in for an in-person interview. Filter through to the best candidates rather than inviting everyone in for interview and taking up more time.
Create a group of employees and / or other managers who can give their insight to ensure you hire the right person from the start. Keep communication open so you are all on the same page and share updates.
Your recruitment process is vital to ensuring you have the right person joining your team. While some recruitment processes have nine or ten steps, you can make yours much more efficient. With systems like Found Talent, you can manage your recruitment in one place, with an easy to manage workflow board to know exactly where you are with each applicant.
