It’s very likely that 2022 will see an expedited hiring process as employers move faster to secure talent in a tight labor market.
Speed of hire is now a competitive edge,” said Lisa Hennessey, chief people officer for Happy Money. “For job seekers, this will mean that you may have multiple companies running you through their recruiting process quickly to beat the competition to offer.
So how can employers beat their competition to the punch when sourcing and hiring the best candidates? One way is to engage with a trusted, industry-tested recruiter partner.
Let’s discuss three simple areas where a recruiter can help overworked hiring teams place great talent quickly. We’ll get started with the basics.
Timely Sourcing Of The Best Available Active And Passive Talent
Hiring managers need access to the most fertile talent pools. Active talent consists of candidates who are actively seeking a job. They’re probably active on the job boards, career help sites, and private company job boards. These job seekers are a good source of talent, but they’re also going to be the hardest to place.
But what is a passive candidate? We consulted the software experts at Hire in a previous post:
One of the biggest challenges recruiters face today is the fact that some of the best candidates already have a job. When these candidates are open to considering a new job but aren’t motivated enough to apply for one, they’re called “passive candidates.
Hiring teams and HR professionals can utilize a recruiter’s extensive network of job seekers and candidates.
Extend Your Team With Services—Temp, Temp-to-hire, Contract, Direct-Hire, and Managed Services
Non-full-time workforce options are also on the rise. From the business technology gurus over at Tech Radar:
We’re seeing more positions (in 2022) for contract work, project work, and one-off commissions, and more people are finding that self-employment is a better option for them than conventional employment. The gig economy is a big deal now, too, and that’s not set to change either.
These types of placements, especially contract workers, can fill urgent staffing needs while you look for a permanent employee. Or maybe the job is truly temporary. Temporary contract workers with specialty skills can keep your projects moving.
And when projects are moving, your company is growing.
Either way, creative hiring and staffing options can definitely help companies grow their workforce.
Reduced Hiring Expenses
What makes up the totality of hiring expenses? HR professionals and hiring managers know from experience that the answer is multidimensional. Factors that have a significant negative impact on hiring costs include:
- Extended times-to-fill
- Lack of intimate knowledge of all potential talent pools
- Early departures due to poor cultural fit
- Inaccurate screening
- Early departures due to a lack of skills verification
Mitigating these factors will fuel workforce and corporate growth.
