Working for an organization where both managers and professionals get a lot of freedom to run their own business, optimizing the recruitment process can be quite a challenge. Managers were used to opening positions last-minute but expect them to be filled quickly and usually leverage their own vendors. Professionalizing our recruitment process started incidentally when we changed from individual and on-demand support to supporting and advising our managers with realizing a more long-term recruitment strategy. Currently we are working on centralizing the hiring process in such a way that our managers will experience benefit. This change can be tricky, for managers will feel like losing both grip and speed.
In both cases, recruitment and hiring, the managers are changing the way they interact with candidates, suppliers and each other but also with the recruiters, their employees and with other organizations. This is a mindshift, a cultural change which has to be addressed without pointing it out, so the focus to the endresult won't be lost. This session will yield insight in the process and in the human factor of professionalizing resourcing.
