How Your Current Hiring Process May Be Hurting Your Business
If you find that your company takes weeks to find a perfect candidate for an open position, there may be a few flaws in your hiring process. If your hiring process is outdated, slow, or prone to mistakes, you could be hurting your business and losing potentially great employees to your competitors. When you work with First Team Staffing, our recruiters help you manage your hiring process and find you excellent employees in no time at all. If you have noticed any of the following signs at your business, it’s time to update your process and work with a staffing agency.
You’re Missing Out on Top Talent
A slow recruitment process will cause your candidates to give up on your team and apply for another company. Moving applicants through the hiring process at a steady pace keeps candidates interested in their new roles within your company.
You can shorten several rounds of screening into a few concise rounds that can be optimized to accurately test a candidate’s experience, knowledge, and abilities for the role. With fewer interviews to get through, you can select and onboard your candidate faster.
Diminished Productivity and Morale of Current Employees
When a job remains vacant for an extended period, your current staff is required to carry the weight of that role. This may mean that current staff must complete tasks not initially called for in their job description. This means that your employees have less time to devote to their own work, creating a general lack of productivity and morale. By replacing empty positions quickly, you can avoid putting a burden on your other dedicated employees.
Hiring Mistakes Can Create Extra Expenses
Putting candidates through several interviews can create hidden expenses in your company, with employees needing to take time away from their regular duties to screen an applicant. To cut some of these expenses, you can work with a staffing agency. The staffing agency takes over screening responsibilities, so they only let qualified candidates move forward. You may then interview the candidate, knowing that they have already passed background checks and other essential qualifications.
A Flawed Hiring Process Increases the Likelihood of Bad Hires
If your recruitment process is too complicated, you may be losing qualified candidates in that process. Passive candidates, or people who are currently employed but open to new opportunities, are often deterred by long recruitment processes. If they don’t apply with your company, you’re losing out on these experienced professionals.
By making the necessary changes to your hiring process and working with the hiring experts at First Team Staffing, you can find excellent candidates for your company.
