“Recruiting should be viewed as a business partner, someone who is critical to the success of the business.”
– Matthew Caldwell
Hiring the wrong candidate is expensive, detrimental to workplace culture, and time-consuming.
Organizations always go the extra mile to secure the right talents the first time.
That often means understanding how the candidate’s aspiration fits with the job and ensuring they have the skills, experience, and values needed to succeed in the job.
It’s also important to take note of the following during the hiring process:
– Be clear about the candidate’s expectations.
– Ask the candidate what they are not good at. The right candidate understands their strengths and weaknesses.
– Prioritize culture-fit while paying attention to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
– Ensure the candidate spends plenty of time with your team to know if they are the right fit.
– Pay attention to the questions your candidates ask, and where possible, work with them first.
So, how effective is your hiring process?
