Many companies are pursuing significant growth plans involving greater headcount, but often the key constraining factor is the ability to hire and retain the skills and expertise needed.
How does your firm maximise your chances of recruiting the right person in a candidate scarce market?
To answer this question Edbury Daley has conducted some insightful research on the choice and implementation of recruitment and selection methods.
We have tested the impact of those choices on the success rate of a getting a quality candidate into the hiring business. Or to put it another way, is the selection process attracting or discouraging a potential employee?
The creation of talent pipelines and new employee engagement techniques are pushing the boundaries of traditional recruitment practice. The benefit of these methods is contingent on the conversion of the initial engagement into a hire.
They bring candidates to the start line of the interview, assessment and offer process. How a company interacts with the candidate from this point onwards determines whether they cross the finish line and join the hiring company.
Our survey has been designed to investigate this second stage of the recruitment process and provide data companies can use to improve their recruitment success rate.
Candidate facing, the questions were written to test attitudes and experience towards the mechanics of a typical corporate recruitment process. With companies investing heavily in cutting-edge talent attraction strategies, this survey is about what happens next; how candidates respond to companies’ selection procedures.
The data gathered can be used to formulate a robust framework for a recruitment process which all organisations can use to maximise their conversion of initial candidate interest into a high performing employee.
