Recruitment Challenges Recruitment Challenges Recruitment ChallengesOffice Based Challenges: In my opinion the most important part of recruitment and selection is the development of a cultural and position profile- who are we and what are the critical attributes that we want in anyone that joins our organization. The next thing is investing the appropriate time in the process, from hiring managers to "recruiters". Companies need to take a better stand on internal education when it comes to recruiting and staffing in order to make themselves more attractive to talent and even open up broader eyes to existing talent.
Market Based Challenges : The other issue facing organizations is that the supply of "experienced" talent is shrinking while the demand is increasing. Recent surveys indicate that employee dissatisfaction is at unprecedented levels and significant percentage of the workplace are planning to switch jobs this year. The lack of jobs and you will have thousands of applications to the same position and it will be a lot more difficult to go through the hiring process. According to the current Economy the “Unemployment rates” being high over qualified people will apply for roles and could be excluded because they are perceived to be over qualified. This is a disadvantage to the employer who has to change their mindset on being over qualified
CLIENT BASED CHALLENGES Too many hiring managers overvalued skills and experience and/or were unwilling to be flexible regarding the selection criteria. Little feedback was provided from hiring managers after candidates were interviewed Most hiring managers were not able to accurately assess candidate competency. (that is the reason why they have the skills matrix) Inaccuracy in providing the information regarding the job search to the recruiter.
WHAT IS SUCCESSFUL RECRUITING?Clarifying what you need and what you offer? (us to client and client tous) Developing leads: Interviewing potential members Hiring and ongoing screening and orientation: Closing questions to consider How will they receive the training that other members received? How will they catch the service spirit and get the full picture? How will I help them get to where they want to go? All of these above mention points combined together in a very accurate manner with the client and candidate satisfaction is a successful recruiting.
