At all times during the hiring cycle, transparent communication and redundant skill sets between all members of the talent acquisition team are vital to success. Improvements in technology make the process easier, but breakdowns may occur and alter the direction of any mass hiring. These changes can be mitigated through leadership preparation and the strength of the acquisition team in three key areas.
- A nimble team can change the sourcing strategy without losing any ground.
- A cross-trained team can alleviate any personnel or tactical changes in hiring strategy in real time.
- A redundancy factor strong at every recruiting level will overcome any potential obstacle.
Transparency gives recruiters the power to make group decisions seamlessly and manage time efficiently while always moving forward through the hiring process.
Consistent meetings and communication with team members will result in better overall recruiting efforts and also a prolonged improvement of skills. Stronger recruiters can provide insight and mentor to struggling team members. A cohesive and transparent environment provides the structure to share skills and build an ongoing and continuously improving talent acquisition unit.
Transparency is more than technology; it’s the ability to meet during any time of the day to make actionable group decisions. The candidate experience should be as quick and fair as possible to every candidate. Candidate notification is important to keep qualified candidates moving forward and to ensure that “knocked out” candidates still remain brand champions of your company.
