Inefficient, overly complex hiring processes can make bringing the right people on board an exercise in futility and often raise concerns about regulatory compliance. To eliminate this challenge, some organizations are adopting agile, lean approaches to streamline their processes for sourcing and assessing candidates. In this HCI Keynote video, Josh Brown of Clemson University and Michelle Reed of SkillSurvey describe how one of our nation’s most prestigious universities overcame a variety of challenges in its recruiting process that were causing it to lose promising candidates.
- Use “lean analysis” to eliminate redundancies and inefficiencies in your hiring process.
- Improve quality of hire by moving reference checks and assessments to occur earlier in the hiring process.
- Empower hiring managers and search committees with “candidate compilation binders” that summarize all relevant candidate information and data for a given position.
- Leverage data collected in your hiring process to build a pool of passive candidates.
