Yesterday I detailed how to define ‘who’ to attract and also how best to promote your business to source the ‘right’ talent.
Now let’s view how to ensure that your recruitment process will get this talent and your target image across.
Your selection processes and structures are more efficient when they’re focussed specifically at the level of intake you’re targeting.
At whatever level, there are some fundamental ingredients that you’ll benefit from including in them all.
At the heart of your processes will be assessing core competencies, matching cultural and diversity drivers, identifying their potential and giving the opportunity for the recruit to express their passion and determination.
Keep the number of stages to a minimum by being clear on your objectives for each and remember that the selection goes 2 ways.
Assessment Centres for Trainee roles, enable you to engage with, review and promote your culture and KSP’s to a target audience and then make qualitative decisions.
For experienced hires, involve those who’ve been developed internally to show the culture and support structures in place.
How effective a bridge is your selection process?
