Table of Contents

If you have landed on this page and started reading this blog, which means- you are an individual who understands the stress and strain involved in a hiring process queued to your to-do list. The amount of pressure that the hiring managers take can lead to hiring lackluster or unfilled job positions that can cost your company. 

Similar to this there are multiple reasons why most HR and Talent acquisition teams fail to hire qualified candidates. This blog broadly highlights some of the common challenges of talent acquisition teams. Also suggests some proven solutions that can help you attain an effective recruiting process.

Showcase and centralize your 5 C’s

Challenge: The pandemic situation completely soaked the recruitment industry into a highly competitive market.  As a reflection of the current scenario, identifying a top talent became an intimidatingly daunting task for the TA team. There could be no crunching situation like this for any organization. 

Solution: It is important to advertise and peak your 5 C’s.

 

Enhance your passive possibilities with social media:

Challenge: The job market has become as challenging as never before. Still, most of the hiring managers immensely rely on the traditional way of recruiting candidates. Counting on saturated job boards and allocating inter resources are going to work but it dilutes the efforts, time, and money! 

Solution: A recent stats from LinkedIn says- job seekers on LinkedIn have a 71% higher chance of getting a job interview. Another stat reveals that LinkedIn has 310 million active users per month. Make use of social media platforms to shape your hiring process smoothly and impactful. Perhaps then, identifying qualified candidates would be low-hanging fruit.

 

Prefer and experiment with different modes of engagement

Challenge: Handling the millennials and Gen Zs is like a bar of wet soap in the hand. The recruiting professionals have to go through a lot before they clutch into the hiring process. Especially, communicating them with the industrial standard practice. 

Solution: A recent survey suggests that, by 2030, 75% of the workforce will be millennials. Presently, the majority of millennials choose texting over calls. Gen Z isn’t different from the millennial generation. It is important to stick with the trend and get going with the industrial practice. Hence ask the candidate for the preferred mode of communication and benefit with the higher success rate.   

Identify the compensation balance

Challenge: Keeping the turnovers in mind, employers tend to hire candidates who prefer to join with a low pay scale. Initially, it may seem to be a good hire but ultimately, this ineffective approach leads to spending more time, money, and resources. 

Solution: compared to the high-quality candidates, the employer is going to spend more money that includes the cost of hiring, onboarding, and processing time. Plus, it’s gonna take a big toll if the hiring is unfilled, unsuccessful, replaced, or fired. Hence it’s better to hire a high pay talent rather than losing more revenue on a low pay candidate. 

 

Hire a staffing partner 

Challenge: Employers allocate their internal resources for hiring qualified candidates. The problem begins here the internal HRs have very limited access to the talent pools and they will not have enough bandwidth to source activities.

Solution: Opting for an outsourced recruiting firm is always the best choice because a staffing partner can be effective in accessing a ‘n’ number of candidates at short notice. And they can step in and quickly understand the company’s requirements and provide the deliverables quickly.
