Don't Let Your Recruitment Strategies Get in the Way of Finding the Right People

By Lawrence Gill

Whether you're in a recruitment agency or a busy HR team, you're working harder to develop strategies and relationships than ever before. 2019 will continue the trend for the candidate-centric approach to recruitment, and with growing competition and technological advancements, the ways in which recruiters find the right people are changing.

Can you afford to be left behind, searching for the right people in the wrong places?

Defining recruitment strategies

Recruitment strategies differ, and rightly so. The most successful recruiters are spending more time on building business and personal relationships, networking and thinking outside-the-box these days, and less time manually managing candidates, instead looking to automation to manage the mundane, time-consuming tasks that threaten to slow and bog down the recruitment process.

In such a fast-paced, demanding sector, with the candidate in the driving seat to a greater extent, traditional recruitment strategies simply aren't enough anymore. Many businesses and candidates are looking for long-term placements and the pressure is on to connect more than just the right person with the right qualifications or experience for the job, but also the right person for the company, and the right company for the job-seeker.

Streamline recruitment processes

The key to recruitment success lies in streamlining management and tracking processes to give a comprehensive view that enables easy, fast search and connection. When recruiters have this control and visibility, their creative skills can be brought to the fore and they can focus on doing what they do best.

Recruiters in specialist areas can benefit the most from automated recruitment management, spend more time crafting job postings and descriptions and more time finding the right people for the positions they have open. Networking is critical for recruitment agencies and HR teams, as often, the right candidates can be found via existing channels – internal referral programs, incentive-driven initiatives and talent pools.
