In the article linked below, the writer discusses investments corporate recruiting should make today. Investment #2, Invest time in thinking through how you recruit people today is the most significant on his list. The other two are dependent upon the conclusions reached after this time is spent.
Here’s some ideas to consider if a company invests this time:
- If your interview questions are based on the candidate’s resume, you are missing the real questions.
- If you are still using a “job description” to attract and then validate candidates, you are making the wrong decisions about people.
- If your jobs have not been benchmarked, you don’t really know what the expectations should be.
- If your interviewing team is still asking different questions from each other, you are missing great people.
Rethinking these issues, and coming to the right conclusions, will guide corporate recruiting to create an effective attraction, selection, and retention strategy.
