5 Signs you Need to Change your Hiring Process


This article was submitted by Kallidus

A much needed change in recruitment methods is long overdue – that’s according to LinkedIn’s latest Global Recruiting Trends survey which describes today’s hiring processes as ‘transactional’ and ‘repetitive’.

Does your hiring process need to change? These five signs suggest it might:-

A surge in applicant quantity, not quality

The annual job application surge has arrived. A combination of New Year resolutions and ‘Blue Monday’ prompted a significant rise in online job applications in the first two weeks of 2018[1]. That’s great news for employers in search of elusive talent to meet their business goals but not so good news if an increase in your job applicants isn’t accompanied by a corresponding rise in quality. A lack of qualified candidates suggests a number of issues. Avoid gimmicky, unscannable job titles and vague job descriptions. Stick with gender neutral wording to promote inclusivity, offer flexible working and focus on the sources that produce the highest source of quality hires for your business. Support your job application process with recruitment software that offers mobile friendly recruitment and a branded careers site to engage talent.
