Why Faster Hiring is a Must

Posted on 05/06 by Erin Helms

When it comes to hiring, time is also talent. The longer you take to hire a new employee, the greater the odds you’ll lose out. One of the top complaints among job candidates is that the hiring process can take too long. Here are ways to speed your hiring process to avoid losing a talented client to a competitor.

Streamline the application process

Make your application process as simple and fast as you possibly can: Allow candidates to upload their resume or to have their information uploaded from their LinkedIn or other professional profile, then move on to some basic questions or ask for a cover letter or personal statement.

Keep the lines of communication open and respond quickly

When a candidate is being considered for an interview, tell them right away. The longer they have to wait to know they’re in the running, the greater the odds of them looking for other positions at other companies. When an interview has been completed, let the candidate know as soon as possible whether they’re advancing to the next round or if you’re moving in a different direction. Remember, too, that people will talk to their friends about whether a possible employer left them hanging when they were waiting to hear about a job.

Incorporate technology when and where you can

Automated skills tests or screening questions will help you weed out resumes that don’t meet your company’s needs or expectations. This way, you wouldn’t even need to see whether someone has the background and skills the position requires; artificial intelligence can do all that for you, presenting only the most skilled and qualified candidates.

Work with a staffing agency

If you’re not sure about technology but need to hire a qualified candidate fast, staffing agencies like LaborMax are the best way to go. We exist to help companies find qualified, talented candidates quickly. By teaming up with LaborMax, we’ll learn about your company’s priorities and needs and what kind of candidates best fit your open roles. Then we’ll do the rest: We’ll post your job to our job board and will start reviewing the candidates we work with to see who might be a good fit. We’ll also reach out to passive candidates -- people whose skills match your requirements but who might not be actively looking for a job -- to see if the position interests them. We’ll conduct preliminary interviews for you, conduct skills assessments and, when we find qualified candidates we’ll pass along only the candidates who could make a strong addition to your team. We can even help schedule your interviews!

Stop stressing and start hiring!
