When hiring, it’s frustrating to have to keep starting over because top candidates frequently drop out of the running. The job at your company might be the most enticing, but if people are out of work or desperately ready for a new opportunity, they won’t wait around for too long.
The average hiring process in the U.S. takes 22.9 days, according to 2015 data from Glassdoor Economic Research. If yours exceeds this amount, it’s time to step it up.
How to Create an Effective Hiring Process With a Staffing Partner
Streamline Your Approach
Chances are, your hiring process includes some components that are slowing things down. Your recruiter will help you optimize it, allowing you to find and select the right person faster. It can be difficult — if not impossible — to do this on your own, because you’re too close to the situation. As a staffing expert, your recruiter knows exactly how to simplify it to ensure no time is wasted.
Give Your Recruiter the Reins
Trying to fill open positions on your own is stressful in more ways than one. In addition to the hiring process, you also have a regular job that can’t be put on hold. Competing priorities inevitably leaves you with a mountain of work that slows the hiring process down.
When you team up with a recruiter, this is a non-issue, because they’ll handle all hiring activities for you. They’ll put their full-time focus on filling your open position, allowing you to find and hire the right candidate quickly, without letting your actual job duties slide.
Plan for the Future
Sometimes employee resignations come out of the blue, but all openings shouldn’t be a surprise. When you’re prepared for standard turnover and company growth, hiring is much easier. Your recruiter will help you create a plan to handle future hiring needs, so you know exactly who you need. They’ll keep their eyes out for candidates that fit the profile, and have them waiting in the wings for when you’re ready.
