Is it taking your company too long to hire the right candidates? If so, it’s causing unnecessary stress for your employees, who have to pick up the slack while a role remains vacant. Not hiring fast enough also can also cause the best candidates, who typically have multiple job offers, not to want to work with you. If either of these scenarios describes your company, then things need to change. Fortunately, we can help.
Here are three signs your hiring process is too slow and what you can do about it.
1. Resumes Linger in a Manager’s Inbox
Do resumes remain unread in a hiring manager’s inbox for days or weeks? If so, the manager may not be placing enough importance on the recruitment process. Or, if the manager is looking for candidates with technical skills that they personally lack, the manager might not feel confident about the job posting created for the role.
2. Top Candidates Accept Offers from Your Competition
Are your hiring managers nearing the end of the recruitment process, only to find their choice candidates accepted job offers from your competitors? If so, you need to make faster hiring decisions. After all, it’s common for in-demand candidates to receive multiple job offers and accept one within 10 days of entering the market.
3. Jobs Remain Vacant
Are your roles staying open for weeks or months? If so, you’re losing significant amounts of productivity and revenue. This is especially true for sales roles and mission-critical positions, such as an R&D role that helps develop new products/services.
How to Fix a Slow Hiring Process
Speed up your recruitment process by partnering with a staffing firm. Because the recruiters have an extensive network, they’re able to match the skills, experience, and culture fit you’re looking for with a vetted candidate. Also, since recruiters stay on top of industry trends and best practices, they’re well aware of how to market your company, the role, and your salary and benefits package in a way that’s appealing to top candidates. As an added bonus, if you don’t want to hire a full-time employee, you can bring them aboard on a temp-to-hire basis. This means you’re able to evaluate the worker’s performance for a set time before deciding whether to make them a permanent part of your team.
