The purpose of the hiring process is to effectively weed out the most qualified and skilled candidates. Over the years, employers have searched for ways to improve this process. Jeff Neal, founder of chiefhro.com, proposes four suggestions to eliminate unproductive hiring process.
4 Steps for Success
The first adjustment Neal recommended is to limit applicant questionnaires. Applicants spend too much time answer questions because of the long list of qualifications. Oftentimes, these questions are recycled and predictable. The answers applicants put on their applications may not convey their actual qualifications and suitability.
The second step is to limit the length of resumes. Having too much information on the resume leads to a burdensome process to review them. Most HR specialists prefer a simple, concise outline of applicants’ qualifications and experiences.
Third, Neal recommended putting actual people in the applicant review process. With the enhancement of technology, many firms rely heavily on automated screening process. Companies reach a point where they rely on technology too much. To find a good balance, HR department perhaps should spend more time on recruiting the right employees using the intuition and wisdom of real people.
The fourth piece of advice is to include more existing employees in the hiring process. The people that the company hires ultimately have to work with your current employee pool. By letting the existing employees participate in hiring process, companies can build better teams.
Simplify and Expedite
Every company wants to reduce costs by finding the right employees the first time around.
