The landscape of human resources is always evolving. It’s healthy to re-evaluate your company’s processes and practices periodically to be sure you’re as effective as possible.
It’s very important to be in tune with what job seekers want – not only for a job but for the hiring process as well. Here are hiring practices that will attract more prospective candidates to your company, helping you hire the best.
3 Best Practices to Make the Hiring Process Better
1) Make the Process Quick & Interactive
Job seekers don’t have a ton of time on their hands to spend on lengthy and archaic application processes. With so many solutions to make the process easy, quick, and interactive, it’s important that you implement one. A seamless process is something that the candidate will not only appreciate, but tell their friends about. No matter what interactive hiring solution you choose, be sure that an applicant is always certain whether or not their application went through. Most likely, that will be from an automatic ‘Thank You’ email.
2) Get Your Story Out There
More and more workers are just as concerned about the company they’re applying to as the job requirements. Upcoming college graduates place company values as a high priority when making the decision of whether or not to apply for a position. Most job seekers are turning to social media to find out more about companies, but if you’re not big on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or other sites, then you absolutely should list your history, mission, and values on your website at the very minimum.
3) Create & Utilize Relationships
Hiring great candidates doesn’t only come from internet job postings. In fact, some of your best hires can come from referrals. Whether you network face-to-face, use social media, or even a staffing agency, being able to ask your friends or colleagues for referrals is a fantastic way to find promising talent.
