In house recruitment by an interim manager: key advantages part 1

Part 1 - 20181009

Technology as the major influence factor

“THE FUTURE OF RECRUITMENT IS NOT FULL OF ROBOTS DOING THE JOBS OF GREAT RECRUITERS. GREAT RECRUITERS WILL BE PUTTING TECH TO WORK, USING AUTOMATION, AI AND PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS TO MAKE BETTER HIRING DECISIONS AND TO MAKE THEIR LIVES EASIER.”

Recruiters want to spend more time engaging with candidates but at the moment they don’t have the process to enable this. This is where technology can help. I believe technology is one of the major factors influencing the performance of in-house recruitment. Tools, including automation and automatic postings on social media channels drive efficiency without making recruiting any less personal. I believe intelligent automation is and will be the most readily adopted of tech solutions, because it creates time and cost savings and improves candidate engagement. Therefor I automate time consuming tasks in-house for almost every client that I have. I use a technology solution that allows me to access metrics quickly and easily. I understand KPI metrics and then I communicate results to the talent acquisition team, hiring managers, wider HR team and business leaders. I think about what my client want to hire for. I always consider a values based recruitment model to ensure hiring is fair and consistent and I have a clear process for identifying right-fit candidates.

At each moment the system that I install is ready to be used or to be re-booted for new search profiles that have to be launched.

In fact, it becomes even more personal if I have time to spend with candidates because screening, shortlisting and scheduling have become streamlined and communications intelligently automated and personalised.

I provide my clients in-house with a simple to use ATS system and a career web portal if they do not use one. The ATS automates postings on jobsites and the application procedures and the status of a specific profile that is launched for every profile at candidate level. The career portal makes the digital marketing easy by providing an apply link on websites and social media.

A dashboard is installed to automate the postings on social media. Thus I have more time for direct search and screening of the candidates.

Also a wide range of metrics are put in place to measure the success of recruitment per strategy used.

example

I come in January and February to recruit. After that I finished I go to another assignment. When the client needs profiles again in September all is rebooted and the profiles are published in 1 day on several websites and social media by date and hour over a defined campaign period.
