Few things that your company will ever do are as important as getting the right staff on board. It’s therefore hardly surprising that recruitment can be a longwinded process at times.
But that’s no good. Every delay can heighten the risk that top candidates simply decide to look elsewhere – so what things will help to speed up your firm’s hiring process in 2018?
The right technology
The world of recruitment never stays the same for long, with new innovations continually coming to the fore. Industry-leading firms’ relentless streamlining and automation of their hiring process ups the ante for smaller companies – are you a 2010s business being held back by a 2000s recruitment approach?
That’s precisely why so many hiring managers take an interest in Webrecruit’s Fusion talent management software.
It’s a scalable, cost-effective and easy-to-use solution that takes your talent pools out of Excel and gives you the tools and insight that you need to constantly refine your hiring process. This, in turn, is vital for snapping up the best talent faster.
The right recruitment marketing
While it’s naturally vital to appeal to potential candidates exactly where they are – which is increasingly such social media platforms as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – there’s much more that you need to do other than grabbing their attention.
Is your firm’s recruitment marketing shipshape for 2018? By that, we mean, is the culture and dynamic of your company clearly shown through its careers site and social media posts? Oh, and have you tailored your recruitment marketing strategies with different generations in mind?
The right employee referral scheme
With LinkedIn having said a referral is the most common way for someone to find a new job – and that companies can expand their talent pool tenfold when they recruit through their employees’ networks – you may suspect 2018 is the year to implement such a program at your firm.
Don’t fall into the trap, however, of thinking that your company’s employee referral scheme needs to be complicated or expensive.
Often, it’s the old-school methods that work best for something like this – such as simply asking your staffers who they know and who they think would be a good match to your company culture and the skills requirements for your vacancy.
At a time when the improving economic picture around the world is emboldening many people to consider switching to a new job, there’s a lot of scope for your company to recruit great talent this year if it makes the right moves.
