When you need to hire a large number of employees in a hurry, you need a streamlined, efficient recruiting process. Given the complexities of our current environment, it’s more important than ever to simplify your high-volume hiring process — and, at the same time, make sure that your candidates feel like you’re a company they want to work for.
While in the past, it may have been impossible to hire high-volumes fast without it feeling rushed and impersonal, today’s hiring technology makes candidates feel appreciated and engaged.
Here are five reasons why you should consider a high-tech solution for your next high-volume hiring project.
While it’s always been helpful to be able to scale your hiring up or down on a whim, the pandemic has made it essential. Some businesses had hiring freezes while others had to accelerate their hiring unexpectedly. And with an unpredictable future, this can change at any time.
Technology makes it easier to adjust to fluctuations in the market.
Technology is available 24/7/365; humans aren’t. If your recruiters are asleep, on vacation or sick, your candidates have to wait for a response. That delay may mean that your candidate starts looking at other options. But with a chatbot, candidates can interact with your company and get questions answered anytime, day or night.
Many organizations are focused on eliminating bias, both conscious and unconscious, from the recruitment process. This can take a long time, and it may not be successful; sometimes, it can be hard to understand the motivations behind recruiters’ decisions. Some fear that artificial intelligence and machine learning may simply amplify human biases, but the opposite is true.
Technology can ensure that demographic characteristics, such as gender, race and age, aren’t considered in the hiring processes it undertakes. This could lead to a wider talent pool, and high-volume hiring decisions that are technology-driven are more likely to be objective and help organizations meet their diversity and inclusion goals.
With every job, recruiters have to perform time-consuming, tedious sourcing and selection activities, such as resume screening. Technology makes this low-value, repetitive work a thing of the past.
With more time in their day, recruiters can become a more strategic advisor to the business. Less time spent on rote activities means that recruiters can offer hiring managers valuable insights into the talent market and supply, pay trends and much more.
Time is of the essence for organizations engaged in high-volume hiring. When technology handles the burdensome aspects of hiring, such as contacting, screening and scheduling interviews for candidates, it accelerates your time to fill. And it helps your organization stay ahead of the competition in a rapidly changing, competitive marketplace.
Technology can improve your organization’s relationships with candidates, help you make better recruitment and hiring decisions and ensure your candidates are on board as fast as possible.
