While recruitment tips can be helpful for recruiters to know, without a solid strategy in place to use them, no number of tips is going to be able to help you. The first thing you want to focus on is centering around a strategy that is going to work.
So, what do we know about traditional recruitment efforts today? First, businesses from all industries are facing an incredible amount of recruiter burnout as their days are becoming busier and more stress-filled. Second, recruiters are spending up to 40% of their time entering data or reviewing candidate resumes. By not implementing a new strategy of recruiting, you are essentially asking yourself to do 100% of your creative tasks in only 60% of your time. This is why so many businesses embrace automated hiring tools rather than sticking to the traditional recruitment methods.
With traditional recruitment methods, you’re stuck in this never-ending cycle of stress and busy workdays trying to improve your time-to-hire. At Qualifi we found that by focusing your effort on just three things, you can improve your entire recruitment process on and off the clock.
📊 1. Understand Your Data
To do any analysis or improve your current recruitment process, you need to understand your internal data as well as current recruitment trends. You need to know what candidates are looking for in the recruitment process and how you can use that information to achieve your recruiting goals, otherwise, you’ll be left behind by your competitors.
Look at your internal data and see how it stacks up to the market trends today. Know what your time-to-hire is and compare that to the time-to-hire of other companies who have had successful recruitment campaigns.
Without understanding your data, and where it places in comparison to other companies, you won’t be able to improve your interviewing strategy for the future.
💪 2. Build Influence
Recruiting is like marketing. You need to sell your company to the candidate. Focus on the values of your company and use those to ensure that you are bringing in the right candidates who will be a good fit for the company as a whole.
In today’s job market, candidates are looking for more than just a salary when they apply for a job. You need to show candidates how you stand out from the competition and that you value them for them to want to work for you.
🤝 3. Develop Trust
As a recruiter, hiring managers need to know that you are capable of bringing them amazing candidates. This can prevent micromanagement and bottlenecks. Make sure that you have detailed and thorough intake meetings that keep you all on the same page.
Even with smooth sailing between the departments, many recruiters may find that they do not have as much time to source candidates as they want. Recruiters are bogged down scheduling interviews that candidates are waiting on. While recruiters know sourcing is crucial, there is always something pressing to take care of. To dramatically improve your interview scheduling, use Qualifi’s automated phone interview platform. Qualifi lets you invite hundreds of candidates to asynchronous interviews at once so you can speed up your entire interview timeline.
