Talent acquisition is a beast to tame and to help the talent & acquisition teams we bring you 3 groundbreaking strategies to set the first best impression on hiring!
Talent hunt is an overwhelming process whether it is a candidate hoping to get noticed or an HR trying to find the best and right talent. There is a record number of employees who are quitting or planning to do so. This has caused a great deal of pressure on the talent team across the globe, especially in India. Organizations should take time to think and act strategically on how to best retain and attract fresh new talent. Since 2009, one out of ten employees quit their jobs. On the other hand, finding the right job has become demanding for professionals due to intense competition and traditional hiring HR practices in the HRMs. Conventional talent recruiting strategies not only provide enough representation to fitting talent but also pull down organizational performance and success. To overcome this challenge we bring three new-age strategies.
According to a study, over 75% of candidates widely agree that the conventional interview pattern is boring and dry as they need to apply manually and wait for long hours/days for a response from the prospective employer. But a video interview can actually bring the recruiter face-to-face with the candidate, understand his capabilities and skills comprehensively and make the necessary onboarding, well-being, and training and development process much easier.
Video interviewing speeds up the hiring process and gives time to streamline the candidate’s efficiencies to place him in the right position. An instant feedback mechanism is harnessed through deploying AI. This relieves the candidate from stress and avoids selection bias in the recruitment process.
Talent is getting snapped on all sides, so HR managers need to take strategic steps to ensure that they are not only easy and accessible but effective. Communication plays a great deal in hiring talent and one best way to achieve that is through texting. If your communication is delayed or tiresome, then candidates might look for better experience elsewhere. Remember, the hiring process is the window that which candidates see the business operations, and is better that you have a top-notch on it. So how do you better reach talent, you cannot use mails back and forth, but automated texts that can reduce the burdensome process and provide a game-changing experience. Texts can even allow HR teams to schedule meetings, manage interviews, and set reminders to prospective candidates. It can bring in a high personal touch and fuel hiring decisions.
Rusty old methods of carrying a resume, cover letters, and recommendation letters for interviews do not sell much today as prospective candidates have diverse needs and expectations. Just setting candidates for interviews or tests is only leading them up to failure or to an unsettled future at workstations. A great way of leveling up their engagement and experience is deploying a game-based assessment window where candidates are allowed to forget that they are taking their assessment as the test is more interactive. HRs can best assess the candidates as they can collect more data points to make hiring decisions more informed and accurate.
