In today’s global marketplace, business control means having the ability to act and react quickly. Businesses that can leverage new ideas, speed, and action tend to lead their markets.
Speed and quality of information are the keys in today’s competitive labor markets.
Several significant challenges facing employers include:
Delay in access to applicant information.
In today’s labor market, if your current solution doesn’t give you an immediate list of screened and sorted applicants, you may end up hiring second, third, or fourth tier applicants because your competitors (who are using the latest applicant management system) have already extended job offers to the top tier applicants.
Cumbersome or delayed intake processes.
Resumes, on-line resume templates, and resume scanning add significant delays to the selection process. These delays are absolutely unacceptable in today’s labor market. In addition, resume-based systems often require keyword searches that further compound the problem and add to the delay. The result–lost opportunities, delayed time-to-contribution, and significant expense in protracted searches.
Too many unsolicited or generic resumes.
The Internet has brought significant advantages to the recruiting process but at the same time has created a new set of problems. Recruiters are increasingly being inundated with e-mailed resumes, many of which are irrelevant to the positions for which they are advertising. Response time is delayed and highly qualified applicants are frequently missed.
Poor hiring decisions.
Too many employers are giving untrained managers the power to purchase very expensive assets (power to make hiring decisions) with minimal or no formal interview training. If your current system doesn’t generate highly targeted behavioral interview guides to help your recruiters and hiring managers conduct thorough, highly structured interviews, you may want to calculate the real cost of a poor hiring decision (turnover, poor performance, poor attendance, theft, loss of market share, legal liability,…).
Does your current system allow you to:
quickly build position-specific, competency-based job profiles?
instantly view pre-screened and rank-ordered applicants?
immediately schedule qualified applicants for an interview?
collaborate with hiring managers over the Internet?
make highly informed selection decisions in record time?
