Spring Clean the Clutter in Your Hiring Process

Updated: 3 days ago

Spring has arrived — and now's the perfect time to clean up your hiring process. When you do, you'll be able to recruit and add quality job candidates to fill part-time, full-time, and temporary roles. Plus, your business may become more productive and efficient than ever before, thanks in large part to new hires who hit the ground running.  At Ascend Staffing, we understand the challenges that come with developing and maintaining a seamless hiring process. For organizations in search of light industrial, non-clinical hospital, and clerical staff, we're happy to help you revamp your hiring. That way, you'll be able to quickly and easily add top talent in springtime and beyond. 

Here are 3 Things You Can Do to Remove Clutter in Your Hiring Process:

1. Be Clear and Direct in Your Job Descriptions

Make it simple for job candidates to understand what a role you want to fill entails. Also, consider the candidate's perspective and why someone may want to join your organization. Then, you'll be able to prepare job descriptions that hit the mark with qualified candidates.  Your job descriptions should include details about the roles you want to fill and the responsibilities associated with them. In addition, provide information about your organization and its culture. You can offer details about the compensation, medical benefits, and other perks your organization provides, too.  Make sure job seekers will be able to submit their applications without delay. This helps streamline the application process. It improves your chances of getting many applications from candidates who meet or exceed your expectations. 

2. Prioritize the Candidate's Experience

Put the candidate's experience front and center. If you don't, you risk scaring off the best job candidates. Ultimately, candidates should know what to expect as soon as they submit an application to your organization. Follow up with candidates to let them know you've received their applications. Provide them with contact information so they can reach out if they have any concerns or questions as they move through the hiring process.  Along with these things, keep candidates up to date. Share updates with candidates via phone calls and emails. If you're ready to hire a candidate, make your move quickly — otherwise, you may lose this individual to an industry rival. 

3. Track Your Results

To confirm your hiring process is helping your organization, monitor your results. Ideally, you'll be able to identify any complexities that slow down this process. As soon as you see these, address them right away.  Collect and evaluate data relating to your hiring results. For example, you can look at the average time it takes to fill a role and other relevant data. By monitoring this information over the course of weeks, months, and years, you may be able to find ways to optimize your process for hiring.  Lastly, get employee feedback. This allows you to understand how your current employees feel about your organization. The feedback may help you identify ways to keep your workers happy so you won't have to find new candidates to replace these employees any time soon.
