Barriers to Hiring Efficiency
Acceptance identified 3 major delays in the hiring process:
- Outdated paper assessments
- High number of interviews
- Time-consuming reference checks
The processes in place for assessing candidates and checking references required recruiters to do all the early and late stage screening work manually. Without an automated system to filter and prioritize candidates, hiring managers were spending valuable interview time with candidates who weren’t a good fit for the role. As a result, positions typically remained open for 40 days or more.
“We don’t just want hiring managers to see satisfactory candidates. We want them to see the very best candidates. In some cases, managers can make a decision after just one interview, which really validates what the recruiters are doing.”
-Clay Stallings, VP of Talent Acquisition and Development at Acceptance Insurance
