Recruiting is made up of a million different moving pieces. Literally. And they’re not linear; they constantly loop back and in on themselves. Some of them help with talent attraction. Some do the heavy lifting of recruitment itself. And others help us with the final stages of the hiring process.
These pieces don’t have to operate in perfect harmony because that simply doesn’t exist. But to strive for peak efficiency is key, even if it means focusing on only two or three areas your team can improve today. This kind of harmonic efficiency is possible only when the right technology, systems, people, and processes are in place.
Without this critical infrastructure, recruiting would grind to a halt. Tapping into today’s richest candidate channels would be almost impossible, and we wouldn’t be able to build robust candidate relationships and pipelines or effectively track and manage the million-plus details inherent in recruiting. And that great candidate experience we’re all working so hard to deliver? Without the right infrastructure and processes that are tested and measured and adjusted, that isn’t happening either.
In fact, one of the best ways to raise the bar on your candidate experience is to relentlessly monitor and improve your overall recruiting efficiency. That’s what you should be doing anyway, and by doing that, you’re effectively raising the bar for your candidates (and your teams).
