Keep The Pedal To The Floor

Back in June I read an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal regarding longer hiring practices. I completely agreed with the article as I had noticed in 2014 that it took almost 5 times as long to on-board a candidate than it did pre-Great Recession (still don’t know what was so “great” about it). The article focused on the use of new technology and how it’s really slowed the hiring process down dramatically thus causing vacancies to stay open much longer. New complicated hiring and submittal portals claim they help hire better talent but there’s been no proof that they’re actually accomplishing this. Meaning, the same candidate would have been discovered and hired faster than these portals allow. In addition the drag time between interviews has substantially increased.

I tell all of my clients that if you really like a candidate you need to keep the foot on the pedal. Clients that let an interview process drag out for weeks only increase the opportunity for their prime candidates to lose interest and get picked off by another company that’s moving a much more brisk pace. I’m not saying that you need to sacrifice quality for timeliness but I am saying that you don’t need to let the grass grow under your feet.

At the end of the day the new technology is only as good as those that use it. If it’s cumbersome and complicated then it’s going to slow you down internally and it’s going irritate your client base. Train your personnel well and streamline your hiring practice so you don’t waste valuable time in the interview and hiring process.
