Whether in a candidate-led or employer-led market, finding the best match for a role can be challenging. When the market is rich with qualified workers, you’ll likely need to emphasize efficiency in your process to evaluate candidates from a large applicant pool. In a time of scarcity in the labor market, you need to find the best talent to place in jobs as quickly as possible. One truth remains constant in both scenarios — you need a hiring process that ensures you get the right fit.
Our top 5 tips for optimizing high-volume hiring
How to improve the success of your high-volume hiring without significantly increasing staffing or recruiters:
One of the most effective ways to prevent applicants from dropping out of your hiring process is to communicate clearly about what’s involved. Be transparent about how many steps they’ll need to complete and what will be required of them along the way.
Evaluate key characteristics
Take a look at each step of your selection process to determine exactly what you need from a successful hire. Does the candidate need a certain level of experience? What are the key behaviors they need to demonstrate for effective performance? Carefully evaluate the role to understand what is truly required for success.
Focus on potential
In high-volume hiring, potential is often more important than experience. Hiring based solely on past experience can screen out candidates who have the potential to thrive within your organization. If you’re having trouble finding a candidate who’s done the job before, try evaluating attributes and competencies rather than experience
Adjust your process to the labor market
Whether talent availability is ample or scarce, your process needs to reflect the dynamic nature of the labor market. Your selection system needs to have flexible technology and content backed by data to adjust yield rates across the process as talent demand shifts.
Let candidates shine
In high-volume situations, it’s tempting to shorten or completely delete steps from the process. But good candidates want a chance to show you who they are. In-depth assessments allow them to do just that, while providing an evaluation that is job-specific and lets them know you’re taking this hiring decision seriously.
How Talogy can help you with high-volume hiring
Lean on our three pillars of content, technology, and expertise
Our assessment content efficiently measures the right factors or competencies, technology allows you to stitch hiring stages together to reduce recruiter touchpoints, and our expertise allows us to configure your selection system in a way that addresses needs that may shift over time.
Measure critical competencies
Talogy assessments measure the competencies required for a role and are predictive of success in the job. Using assessments in your hiring process, especially in high-volume hiring environments, can help you predict who will be the best match for the role and your organization.
Deliver a flexible assessment process with modularity
Assessment providers often recommend that you use assessments that are too long or include competencies that have nothing to do with your job roles. Talogy’s modular platform allows you to configure a specific assessment designed for your talent challenge, using only data-backed measures that help you make better candidate decisions.
Never stop adapting
We don’t believe in set-it-and-forget-it approaches. Even after a solution is implemented, our consultants continuously monitor everything from pass rates and candidate reactions to device usage and adverse impact. It is critical that you always know how your selection system is performing, and Talogy will always make sure you have those data at your fingertips.
