Maintaining a great candidate experience and ensuring success require moving each process forward promptly while eliminating time-consuming tasks.

How do you ensure a good cadence and optimal process?

Recruitment processes need accountability and a clear division of responsibilities to function correctly. Establishing Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and utilizing frameworks such as Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RACI) can swiftly identify bottlenecks in the recruitment process.

Implementing a standard to manage recruitment processes enhances predictability and facilitates identifying lagging key performance indicators (KPIs) and their underlying causes.

Implement Structure to Bring Clarity

A recruitment process generally fulfills the commonly accepted definition of a “Project.” There is a clear idea of what needs to be done, the time interval for completion, and a definition of done.

Managing the expectations of all relevant parties during a recruitment process can be overwhelming if they are not mapped correctly. Several parallel processes with alternating time scopes add a layer of complexity.

Achieving successful control involves understanding what to monitor and how to track the various components of the recruitment process. This enables realizing benefits such as efficient processes, cost-effectiveness, and timely hiring of the right candidates.

Project Management

Effectively managing the expectations of both internal and external stakeholders, keeping turnarounds within schedule, and maintaining a consistent cadence of the recruitment processes are crucial elements. Additionally, ensuring high-quality deliverables and meeting expected timelines internally is a significant aspect of any Talent Acquisition function that requires careful attention and cannot be rushed.

This can be optimized by establishing a clear structure with a mapping of responsibilities across the recruitment process and a toolset that will help all organizations cut costs while increasing the level of control.

Cost Control While Delivering on Target

Proper control in the recruitment process directly impacts the cost of recruitment efforts while delivering on target in terms of quality and quantity of candidates for the organization.
