Finding the right person for your organization can be a daunting and costly process. With the average cost of hiring a new employee now exceeding $3,479 (Bersin & Associates, 2012) organizations are focused on managing costs down while simultaneously improving quality of hire.
Résumé overload and labor shortages make it imperative to identify quality talent quickly and efficiently. Talent acquisition professionals want more time with top candidates yet the pool of applicants can be overloaded with people who may not have the right skills, experience or cultural fit.
To help narrow the talent pool and identify qualified applicants, organizations need to evaluate the tools being used. Is the right technology being used to streamline the process? Are applicants engaged and communicated to in a timely fashion? Are automation tools leveraged as appropriate? Are the right screening and assessments being used to identify talent for the position? And is culture taken into consideration to ensure fit between the organization and the individual?
During this webcast, you will learn how to:
Quickly identify quality candidates by using the right tools
Effectively manage large volumes of applicants to identify candidates with the right skills and culture fit
Lower the cost per hire
Reduce turnover and improving time to productivity by assessing talent
Increase employee engagement by hiring people who match the organization’s culture
