Good Acquisition /Hiring team
Everyone in the hiring team should be able to clearly define the company culture and how the perfect candidate would fit in. It is imperative that everyone is on the same page in terms of numbers of applications and the roles the company is hiring for. Synchrony is key!
The Ideal Job Description
As with any hiring process, a solid job description for each position is compulsory. This process becomes simpler if you are hiring many people for the same job! With the final description, you are ready to give potential candidates a clear picture of the job, and be ready to ask questions in an interview. The job descriptions need to be well prepared, tempting, and should highlight the factors that make your company attractive. Its also important to know your key selection criteria. Its best to narrow it down to a top few.
Mass hiring can get messy without the proper organization. This is why delegation is very important. The process is often nerve-wracking, challenging, and disorganized so individual groups should be responsible for various parts of the process. For example, one team could handle the task of posting the applications on various portals and social media platforms, one could focus specifically on the interview process, and one team could contact applicants with the results or with further instructions. Applications need to be categorized and filtered. No cover letter = the “no” pile. By splitting up the tasks like this, and communicating well, teams can work efficiently without becoming overwhelmed. The market we are in is dominated many job seekers. We don’t want to let our competitors get the best hires so time is of the essence!
Imagine interviewing, hiring, and training 25 new hires at once. This seems like a nightmare waiting to happen! Stagger and split the process into smaller groups. This is a simple and stress free way to bring in new people to the company while sparing resources.
