Even if you feel you have the luxury to not fill a certain vacancy in your company straight away, the likelihood is that there will be many very talented and suitable candidates out there being snapped up by rivals. Minimising ‘time to fill’ should therefore be one of the greatest priorities of your hiring team.
Here are some helpful tips for doing precisely that.
Invest in an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)
An Applicant Tracking System, ATS, recruitment software, talent management software… whatever word you want to use, there’s no question that it can be a crucial weapon in your hiring team’s armoury.
The right software platform, such as our very own Fusion, can enable you to build a talent pool into which you can quickly dip whenever a vacancy opens at your business.
Such software can also make the promotion of your latest opportunities through the various popular social networks so much easier and more efficient, to say nothing of its insightful report creation capabilities as well.
Look to your talent pool
As aforementioned, a ready-made talent pool can be invaluable for shortening your time to hire.
Instead of simply processing CVs every time you advertise a vacancy and then never looking at them again, if you keep the best ones on file, you may find that a few of them are perfect matches to the job description for your next open opportunity.
It may turn out that you don’t even need to write a job description, post an advertisement, conduct interviews or do any of those other things that suck away time and focus from your core business.
Conduct online interviews
With the average job interview process taking 23 days according to one Glassdoor analysis, it’s understandable that so many employers have turned to online interviews to speed things up.
One of the greatest advantages of such interviews is that you have a choice as to whether to conduct them in real time, or instead watch pre-recorded interviews in your own time to give yourself a greater opportunity to properly assess the candidate.
Never underestimate the role of the best software
With so many talent management software solutions on the market, you may presume that all of them do pretty much the same thing. When you introduce yourself to Webrecruit’s acclaimed Fusion platform, however, you will learn that this definitely isn’t the case.
Why wait any longer to start taking advantage of a cutting-edge, fully-featured and easy to use solution for slashing your organisation’s time to hire like our highly acclaimed Fusion? Request your brochure today to find out more.
