Spring has officially arrived; the glimmer of sunshine and longer days go hand in hand with the seasonal trend – spring cleaning.
Whilst many focus on their cluttered garden sheds or overloaded spare rooms we believe this tradition is not just good practice for the home, but also great to implement in the workplace.
Therefore, why not take the time and give your online recruitment processes a spring clean, in time for the busy summer months to come.
Here is Webrecruit’s 5 top tips to aid you on your way to spring cleaning your online recruitment:
1. Declutter your supplier list
When outsourcing your online recruitment it can be tempting to turn to multiple recruitment suppliers, driven by the belief that you will be gaining a wider reach. In fact, working with a long list of recruitment agencies may result in duplication – not only with the CVs you receive but also with your job advert on online portals.
2. Assess your social presence
If you are already using the likes of LinkedIn or Twitter as part of your recruitment strategy, and your ROI isn’t quite as effective as it could be, perhaps it is time to , review its effectiveness.
Use your spring cleaning time as an opportunity to calculate which of your social platforms are working best for you; providing you with evidence on where to focus your efforts moving forward.
3. Tidy up your employer branding
If you have managed to strategise your employer branding, congratulations. If not, why not , evaluate what you have done to date and what other methods you could try going forward.

Highlight those trends and habits that cause delays in your hiring process and be stern and set yourself the challenge to call time on those old habits that are holding you back.
5. Try something new
Change can often seem daunting, but with many companies offering free trials and demos for tools that can enhance your online recruitment processes, you can try new recruitment methods, risk-free.
