In Recruiting, it is our goal to take the hiring burden off of our (internal or external) customers’ hands. Part of removing that burden is saving them the time of having to do it themselves. It is one of the 3 pillars of what is typically believed to comprise a strong Recruitment program – time/speed, low cost and high quality. You can’t have all 3 and I’d argue that quality is the MOST important. The tip in today’s article is regarding time, and its relation to quality.
The TYPE of time matters. Some time is valuable to save – things like administrative tasks, sourcing, screening, and communication. But when it comes to adding value on the quality side – things like collecting comprehensive feedback, sharing challenges, re-adjusting strategy and building trusting relationships are not a waste of anybody’s time. In fact they are most critical to the success of a quality hiring program. More on that from Tim Sackett here.
