In a market where good candidates are in short supply one thing your organisation can do to ensure you win the battle for talent is to conduct a well managed efficient recruitment process. Many clients have come to us having missed out on excellent candidates because their interview process was just too long. Currently strong candidates will likely have more than one organisation to consider and once roles are offered a significant part of the decision making process will be how did they feel about the interview process. A smooth and timely process will make a candidate feel waned and confident that you believe them to be the best candidate. It also demonstrates that the role is important. A long, drawn out interview processes may leave a candidate wondering if the potential employer really wants them and gives other organisations the opportunity to steel a march get their offer in first.
