4. Recruiting in a short period of time (24%)
What exactly is the issue?
“The early bird gets the worm.”
To put it bluntly, the company that hires first gets the best prospect.
According to Robert Half, 57% of job applicants are impatient, and if the hiring process takes too long, they will look for another employment.
Allowing your firm to linger too long may result in the loss of the top applicants. Keep the period between posting a job and hiring someone as quick as possible, and keep the candidate informed throughout the process.
Pursue all available routes as quickly as possible to identify the best candidates—LinkedIn, DevOlympics, Glassdoor, coding challenges, and so on.
Once you got a pre-qualified candidate via a thematic coding challenge, use an ATS to automatically parse resumes. Make sure you have a strong job description and precise keywords! You may not have time to go through all of the resumes manually, but don’t miss out on potential applicants by failing to properly define ATS parameters.
Online coding challenges and examinations, for example, can help you speed up your hiring process and reduce your “time to hire”. You can spend more time on those who were able to put their skills where their mouth is by delivering an automated test to every candidate.
The employment market today is not the same as it was in the past, and recruiters can no longer sit at their desks with their feet propped up, waiting for candidates to come begging for a position.
When it comes down to it, finding and winning the best prospects takes a lot of effort.
The above suggestions are by no means exhaustive, but they should provide you with some ideas and beginning points if you don’t believe you’re getting the quality of hiring you need to move your business ahead and establish your brand.
