To create a winning team, it takes time, patience, and creativity. But in recruiting, there’s never enough time in the day to get it all done; let alone to find time to be creative. True, management is never easy; especially as a recruiting team lead where your expertise and success is based on the very thing you have no control over: recruiting candidates.
As you are aware, recruiting is a numbers game that’s all about driving fulfillment. The data is very black and white, and as the person managing a team of recruiters, it’s up to you to keep your team accountable and motivated. But, when you are managing upwards of a dozen or more recruiters, each with a laundry list of open job requisites, how do you keep everyone focused on hitting their recruitment goals?
RECRUITING METRICS THAT MATTER MOST
In my opinion, recruiting is a balancing act: one part art and one part science. Expecting recruiters to hit their numbers in a typical 40 hour work week can be difficult, so understanding that recruiting requires both discipline and agility is imperative as a recruiting or hiring manager.
