There are plenty of legacy recruitment administration processes still being practiced today. This can add considerably to the hiring costs as well as the time taken to hire talent. What steps can recruiters take to make their recruitment and selection processes more efficient saving them time and costs.
Unfortunately, manual administration work is still practised by many recruiters and human resources departments. Whether it’s sourcing potential candidates or screening CV’s the time taken can stretch to days or weeks and can be further extended when arranging interviews. Inefficient practices can soon impact on the business if there are multiple open roles to be filled. This is particularly common in the tech start-up sector when new funding is received for the recruitment of multiple digital tech talent. Analysis of the cost-per-hire metrics will soon reveal just how costly and inefficient processes can be. Having an efficient selection and recruitment process should ensure that the right quality candidates are selected for shortlist in a timely manner. Equally any unsuitable candidates should be informed quickly and appropriately to protect the corporate brand.
There are various ways to improve efficiency in the recruitment and selection process but one of the easiest methods is to utilise available technology to assist. Recruiters and human resources have a choice of technology hiring tools to help them make their processes more efficient. Some hiring tools specialise in a specific task like online job posting, CV screening or psychometric testing for example. Selecting the right tools is key to automating the recruitment process because some work better than others. When assessing potential vendors check if there is a demo version that can be tested first enabling an assessment of the impact on efficiency to be made. Look for solutions that automate and simplify processes that can provide metrics-based evidence of efficiency improvements.
For best results in improving efficiency using technology and hiring tools consider a vendor that enables the management of the entire recruitment process on a single platform. Whist assessing potential solutions also explore future developments to see that the vendor will be adapting to changing practices over time. When recruiters and human resources start using hiring tools in their processes there should be evidence of a reduction in time spent on manual tasks and a corresponding reduction in the cost-per-hire and time to hire.
