Many employers do not feel it is necessary to recruit personnel until there is a job opening. Unfortunately, this approach can leave your company scrambling to fill a position quickly to avoid lost productivity, which means there may not be time to find the ideal candidate for the role.
At Smart HR, we see talent acquisition as a proactive business pursuit. We believe that developing a pipeline of qualified candidates for your business means you will always have a pool of excellent job candidates you can draw upon when you need to hire someone.
Whether your business is growing, your goals or needs are changing, or an existing employee is leaving, we can help your organization be in the best position to secure new and highly qualified talent quickly and effectively.
The Smart HR Candidate Pipeline Development Process
Here is a look at what is involved in our process.
Identifying Your Hiring Needs
First, we will research the profile of the types of candidates you hire in a typical year. This will include factors such as industry background, educational background, and type of position to ensure we have a strong understanding of who you generally look for to fill your openings and what roles you frequently need to fill.
We will consider factors such as your future expansion plans, potential changes in locations, restructuring, or any possible mergers, acquisitions or other major changes.
Planning Our Candidate Search
We will determine how many hours per month we should devote to proactively sourcing candidates within the individual pools we have identified for your business. Our team considers your recruiting demands and budgetary concerns when deciding on the ideal amount of time to spend on this task. Searching monthly means your candidate pool will be as fresh as possible, with people who are currently looking for a position.
Your talent pipeline won’t fill itself, so we will develop a framework to nurture long-term relationships with potential hires. In addition to ensuring they possess the right experience and education, we will look at whether the candidates are a good fit for your culture and the benefits they will bring to your organization.
Our team of recruiting consultants will present the top talent we have identified to your business for consideration and any exploratory interviews you wish to conduct to determine where the candidates will fit into your company.
Nurturing The Pipeline
We will keep your candidate pipeline engaged to ensure that all potential employees have a good experience with your company and maintain their interest until you are prepared to commit to hiring.
The Benefits Of Creating A Talent Pipeline
Giving your hiring process better structure is just one of many benefits of establishing a talent pipeline. Here are some of the other advantages of our services.
Reducing Time To Hire
A well-developed talent pipeline streamlines the hiring process so that your time to hire is reduced dramatically.
Hiring Better Candidates
Filling a position quickly often means settling for the first candidate that comes along who is remotely qualified. Our candidate pipeline development services allow you to be more strategic and think in the long term, thereby avoiding the high cost of a bad hire.
