Nearly 87% of candidates are always open to new job opportunities. However, many recruiters still find it difficult to hire the right talent for their companies.
This suggests that somehow recruiters aren’t able to reach the right candidates at the right time. And as a result, it costs the company a huge amount of valuable time and money.
The good news is that you can minimize your time to hire with a few simple recruiting hacks. Let’s take a look at some of the best strategies that can help you hire top talent quickly:
Hire Through Social Media
The number of social media users continues to rise every day. By 2019, it’s estimated that there will be 2.77 billion social media users worldwide.
What does this indicate? It implies that the talent you’re looking to hire is on social media.
So don’t forget to advertise your open positions on popular social networks. Networks like LinkedIn and Facebook can help you find the best candidates, reduce the cost of hiring, and shorten your time-to-hire.
Leverage Employee Referral Programs
Your employees might already know people who could be a good fit for your open positions. So you can leverage an employee referral program to expand your talent pool. Offer lucrative incentives to your employees so that they’re more inclined to refer their friends and acquaintances.
Employee referrals are a great source of quality hires besides social networks and online job boards.
Provide an Amazing Candidate Experience
Offering your potential employees a good candidate experience will help you hire great candidates easily and quickly. Word-of-mouth spreads fast. So, if you can provide a positive experience to your candidates, it can help build your reputation. It can also help you attract the interest of other potential candidates.
Use Artificial Intelligence
AI is here to stay. Anything that helps to simplify a complex process can improve its turnaround time. Artificial Intelligence enables you to process complex data to sort resumes easily, improve communication with candidates, and speed up your hiring process.
