The candidate is in charge
Candidates demand the best hiring experience. Yet the company-led hiring process takes weeks or even months.
Hiring has been company-driven for forever, and HR’s approach is cookie-cutter at best: review resumés, offer an assessment, phone screen, conduct face-to-face interviews.
If you’re the lucky one that gets the job then it’s a great experience.
For everyone else – too bad.
They are waiting and waiting after they apply.
They wait to hear if they’ve been chosen for the interview.
After their interview, they wait to hear about the next steps.
Candidates are lucky if they hear anything at all.
The traditional process for volume hiring is inefficient for both employers and employees. It’s unfair to candidates and it’s filled with processes for recruiting teams that force them to focus on efficiency for one candidate instead of all candidates.
The companies that are winning the fight for talent are letting each candidate drive the process.
This creates an exceedingly efficient hiring journey that enables recruiting teams to find, hire, and retain the best candidates for today while nurturing the talent pool of tomorrow.
Your applicant tracking system alone is not going to solve any of your massive hiring challenges.
