Hiring a new employee involves more than posting a job description and interviewing anyone who applies. Hiring a new employee has a series of decision points that make up the entire process.
Thus the term “end-to-end recruiting.” It represents a comprehensive approach to talent acquisition that covers every stage of the hiring process, from an initial job req all the way through new hire onboarding. Every company should understand and streamline this process to ensure a positive experience for every candidate they touch.
Some of the steps involved in end-to-end recruiting, include:
- Defining the role and ideal candidate: Before you can start recruiting, you must understand the role and your ideal prospective hire
- Attracting and engaging desired talent: Writing compelling job descriptions, posting them to the right job boards, and utilizing social recruiting platforms, employee referral programs, and similar tactics to find and engage your target audience.
- Interviewing: Reviewing resumes, scheduling, and conducting phone screens, short-listing candidates, and managing in-person interviews.
- Offers and onboarding: Making final candidate selections, managing background and reference checks, making, negotiating offers, and effectively onboarding a new hire.
Reap the Benefits
Done well, recruiting attracts high-quality applicants, streamlines a hiring process for maximum efficiency, leads to better candidate experiences, and contributes to lower turnover and relief from the headaches and stress that result from bad hires.
A company that places value and focus on its recruiting efforts and processes benefit greatly. Candidates are more likely to have a more personalized experience from their first touchpoint through their critical first weeks on the job.
- This includes the consolidation of accountability, as everyone knows who is responsible for the next step; vision and strategy, making it easier to maintain a central recruiting vision and integrate hiring goals into larger business objectives, and data, simplifying access to past candidates who may not have been the right fit for one role, but are perfect for another one.
- Makes a positive bottom-line impact. It builds a new hire’s sense of community and belonging, which in turn can result in higher retention and productivity. It also makes negotiations smoother and helps decrease time to hire.
- Word of mouth impact is affected positively. Candidates that have a positive experience with a company through their interview process are more likely to refer their colleagues and apply again in the future even if they are not offered the role they initially interviewed for. Remember, you are working with PEOPLE!
