No matter where you look, it seems like efficiency is the top concern of businesses across all industries. As prices continue to skyrocket, logistics options become less reliable, and other issues threaten business as usual, it is more important than ever to ensure that your teams meet required headcounts and consist of the best individuals for the job. Even more important? Ensuring that your hiring processes are as streamlined as possible.
Most of the hiring teams we talk with are facing bottlenecks in their candidate pipelines simply because they don’t have a way to identify skills and experience without some manual intervention quickly. This article will look at our three top tips to streamline your hiring process while leveraging the power of AI to ensure time-consuming tasks are offloaded whenever possible.
Tip 1: Rethink Your Pre-Screening Process
While reading resumés is a great way to get a baseline view of a potential employee, these documents don’t typically offer all the information needed to make an informed decision on their qualifications. Implementing pre-screening questions through Interview Magic can help leverage AI to quickly review candidates for their suitability, which an actual human can then verify during the interview process.
Tip 2: Improve Your Applicant Tracking Systems
Have you ever pursued a candidate only to find that they had already previously applied for a position with your company? If this has happened to you, there is a good chance that you need to improve your applicant tracking systems to archive submissions more effectively. While this required a lot of manual work in the past, new systems are using technology to improve processes and make them more accessible for any industry.
Tip 3: Outsource Candidate Generation
Whether you are more comfortable asking for referrals or want to outsource candidate sourcing to a recruiter, there are many benefits associated with this practice. Not only can you free up your hiring teams to focus on the issues that matter, but you can also ensure a steady stream of talent at all times. Consider looking for recruiting partners that meet your industry in your local area if you are struggling to get great matches.
