Are You Missing Out On Top Talent?

Leveraging the right technology to build efficiencies into your hiring process is critically important in today’s competitive environment.

As we well know, talent acquisition is a significant, on-going operation for most organizations.

Add the current low unemployment rate, the fact that baby boomers are rapidly leaving the workforce, and the ever-increasing requirements for skilled positions, you have a perfect storm of challenges that your HR team is up against for maintaining the staffing levels your organization needs to win in today’s economy.

If there’s one step of the hiring process that is ripe for automation, it’s the pre-screening process: from the point when you receive resumes to the initial pre-screen interview.

In a recent survey of recruiters, most reported that losing candidates before they even have a chance to interview them is a real challenge. The fact is, with our current job market, winning the competition for talent often comes down to the most efficient hiring process.

In other words: can you identify the best talent in your applicant pool and get them through the hiring process faster than your competitors, while also maintaining quality?

One answer to this challenge, of course, is technology. More specifically, finding software that will automate processes that normally takes large amounts of time.

As an example — there’s a pretty good chance your organization is already using an ATS system, which significantly streamlines how you manage applicants. If you’re a talent acquisition professional, you probably couldn’t even imagine how you could manage the hiring process without this important software tool. With this in mind, let’s look at a specific part of your hiring process where technology could improve efficiencies even further.

The Pre-Screen Process

If there’s one step of the hiring process that is ripe for automation, it’s the pre-screening process – from the point when you receive resumes to the initial pre-screen interview.

Let’s look at the current process for most organizations: (1) spend time looking through dozens of resumes (for every job post); (2) determine which applicants meet minimum job requirements; (3) and then reaching out to the candidates to perform (or to schedule) a pre-screen interview.

What if you could eliminate some of the human steps from this process so that your recruiting team could focus its attention on nurturing the top talent in your candidate pool instead?

On-demand interviewing is quickly becoming the go-to tool to accomplish just that. Let’s look at one example of how organizations have incorporated on-demand interviewing in their process:

  1. An application comes in through Indeed (or other job board).
  2. The applicant is automatically prompted to complete an on-demand interview at their own convenience (this could be a video, audio, or SMS-based interview).
  3. The recruiter, at their most convenient time, can review applicant interviews and score them.
  4. The recruiter can share a link to the applicant’s interview and resume to the appropriate hiring manager so the hiring manager can review the applicant at their optimal time.

Here are the key efficiencies mentioned above:

  • No more scheduling or finding times to perform the pre-screen interview.
  • Candidates can perform their interviews on their own time – including nights, weekends, and holidays (in other words, getting interviews done even when your recruiting team isn’t working).
  • You get higher candidate engagement rates for the simple fact that they can complete their interviews on their own time (giving your organization a higher probability of capturing top talent from your candidate tool).
  • Recruiters and hiring managers can better manage their day by reviewing candidates at their best times.

If this sounds appealing for your hiring process, let’s talk about how Harqen’s on-demand solution can fit into your workflow and build efficiencies that will better equip your team to win the competition for talent in 2020.
