3 elements of your recruitment process that may be less than helpful

Sometimes, your firm’s worst enemy in the hiring process may not be market conditions, financial limitations or even certain candidates consistently being ‘the one that got away’.
Instead, you may need to scrutinise parts of your own company’s recruitment process to ensure you aren’t self-sabotaging. Here are just a few of the potential problem areas.

The number of interviews

It’s understandable that you might want to hold quite a few interviews to guard against the risk of a promising candidate turning into a nightmare once they are actually in the job.

5 Reasons Why Active Candidates are Perfect for Startups

Employers and recruiters tend to prefer passive candidates because they have the right skill sets, have the right qualifications and have a history of good employment. But for a startup working environment, could active candidates be the ideal employee?

When it comes down to it, what you want to hire is the right person with the rights skills at the right level. But when you enter the market with your startup, the budget is often an issue. So hiring the ‘ideal’ employee isn’t always possible.

4 Benefits of Conducting Exit Interviews

To put it simply, an exit interview is an interview which is conducted with an employee who is leaving the company. It’s rather similar to when you’re employing someone for a role, but instead of asking questions about why they want the job and why they want to work for you, you’re asking them for their reasons why they have left the job.

Cost Per Hire vs Value Of Hire – How HR Shows Their Value

A lot of HR teams struggle with how they can show the value they are bringing to the organization. It’s understandable – how do you quantify things like a better culture, or stronger hires? Well, when there’s a will, there’s a way.

It’s always a worthwhile exercise to look at what other parts of the organization are doing to solve a given problem. In this case, marketing once again has shown an interesting way to understand the overall health of our talent acquisition operation, as well as how we can show the value we bring to the rest of the company.

What job advert buzzwords really mean

Especially if you’re like me – someone who just wants to know what’s going on, make a useful decision then move to the next thing.

Real meanings are hard enough. There are, for example, triangular warning signs beside hilly roads telling me to look out for falling boulders. I’m ashamed to admit my car didn’t come equipped with the latest Boulder Deflection Technology. I’ve definitely missed something. Or I’m about to hit it. I honestly couldn’t tell you.
