Hiring Performance Model
The Accolo 6-step process
10 Universal Hiring Best Practices Path of Least Resistance for the Hiring Manager The hiring process should be the path of least resistance for hiring managers. They will typically embrace this path regardless of the desires of other stakeholders. Every Job is Unique Every job is as unique as the hiring manager, team, geography, function and company and should be profiled and managed accordingly. Courteous, Respectful and Confidential Every stakeholder deserves to be treated with courtesy, respect and complete confidentiality. Applicants may have many points of intersection with the hiring company as consumers, investors, referral sources and future hires, and the totality of this relationship must be considered. Referrals Must be Leveraged Referrals are a primary source of hirable candidates, and each recruiting effort should actively seek and follow-up with referrals via social media and direct personal outreach. Incorporate All Sources All sources should be incorporated into the recruiting process, including traditional, non-traditional and direct sourcing methods. Adaptable Process Recruiting approaches should be responsive to different job types (Executive, technical, non-exempt, etc.). Diversity Sourcing Diversity sourcing should be included with every job. The world is diverse and a diverse workforce gives a company a strategic advantage. Fair and Equal Opportunity Every candidate deserves a fair and equal opportunity to apply and receive job-specific consideration. Follow up and Closure Every candidate deserves follow-up and closure, regardless of outcome. Applicant Tracking EEO data capture, applicant tracking and reporting must be complete and accurate for every job.
