- How do you maintain your quality of hire during massive hiring periods?
- How do you maintain the company culture during massive growth times? and
- How do you maintain a quality candidate experience during these hectic periods?
What can hiring pros do to improve the hiring process and overcome these challenges? So, during this time, hiring pros need to be master project managers. Hiring pros need to ensure that there is a process in place, number one.
Number two, that people are communicating, and better yet, over-communicating during these periods. And to address the challenge of maintaining company culture, what I’ve done in the past is I’ve actually identified a culture ambassador who interviews the candidates just for culture fit.
How do you ensure that you’re quickly finding the best talent during these times of rapid growth? Every team has a different definition of what best talent means. Work with the teams, drill down to identify the key traits of best talent. And establish a process that is able to uncover these traits either at phase one or phase two of the interview process. You’ll be able to get to the candidates – the best candidates – quickly during this time.
These are my suggestions in addressing the challenges of growing and retaining a quality workforce during periods of massive company growth.
