Tired of losing top candidates to the competition? The problem may not be the quality of your business but the efficacy of your hiring process. If you’re not contacting prospects fast enough – or getting back to them after the interview – they’re likely to take their talent to another company. Read on for Accurate Personnel’s tips for landing talent faster.
Expedite the Application Process
How hard is it for prospective job candidates to fill out your application? With an increasing number of applicants hunting for jobs on their smartphones, expediting the application process is more important than ever. For best results, make sure your jobs page is mobile friendly and don’t hesitate to post listings on Facebook and other places your desired workers might congregate.
Of course, it doesn’t matter how easy it is to apply for a job at your company if recruiters don’t respond to candidates for weeks at a time. The best employees tend to amass multiple job offers, so don’t hesitate to get back to your top choices.
Schedule Interviews Fast
How long does it take your HR team to coordinate interviews? Can they get supervisors and other team members in a room with candidates quickly? For best results, arrange for a phone interview right away (ideally within a few days of receiving an application) and schedule an in-person meetup in the next week or two.
Make a Decision
Once you’ve found the right person, don’t hesitate to make an offer. By streamlining the hiring and onboarding process, you reduce the amount of time candidates are out of work (perhaps without access to healthcare and other benefits). Additionally, hiring faster means existing employees don’t have to work as hard to make up for the staffing dearth.
