Having a structured recruiting process is the first step toward creating repeatable success at your organization. However, it is also one of the most overlooked pieces of the puzzle.
We’ve partnered with Workable and put together some actionable steps that will put you on the path to predictable success:
Set stages in your process
Are you keeping track of how long your hiring process takes? Many hiring professionals often don’t realize how long they’re keeping their candidates in the lurch! The simple solution to this problem is to ensure that you are getting back to your candidates in a timely fashion. As a general rule of thumb, candidates do not enjoy being left in the dark. The easiest way to get turned down by your perfect candidate, is to come off as disorganized.
Decide on the purpose of each stage
Using structured recruiting means that each and every part of your hiring process should be methodically planned. This means focusing on structured interviews, thinking about who is responsible for each task, and what each stage of your process should look like. When you take the time to think about what purpose each and every step should serve, your candidates will take notice. Not only will these actions help you and your team, but it will also help to create a positive candidate experience.
Data reporting is without a doubt one of the biggest topics of discussion across every industry. The world of HR and Recruiting is not immune; especially when talking about structured recruiting. While deciding what kind of data you should be tracking can seem like an overwhelming task, it is necessary. This can be as simple as keeping track of how many candidates you need at the top of your funnel to get the results you need at the bottom. Taking steps to report on your overall hiring process will give you better insights into what parts of your process are working, and which parts need some tweaks.
