According to PWC's 2017 CEO survey, chief executives view the unavailability of talent and skills as the biggest threat to their business.
And hiring is now, more than ever, done by reaching out to external candidates. From 1945 through the 1970s, corporations filled roughly 90% of their vacancies through promotions and lateral assignments. Today that figure is a third or less.
This leaves a heavy burden on recruitment and hiring, finding the right people for positions at every level of the company among external candidates.
Planning your recruitment process
To be sure that the whole organization is onboard with how you do recruitment, every person affected by your procurement process needs to understand what's going on and when.
Or even better, every person involved in your recruitment process should be involved in actually mapping out and planning how you should do recruitment. What are the needs at marketing? Sales? Logistics?
This is often the problem, reflecting the actual needs in a department to the team doing the recruiting. With a tool like ShiftX, you get a way to visualize who does what when in the recruitment process.
If you map out your recruitment process in ShiftX with all stakeholders in a workshop, you are certain everyone involved has a visual picture of what's going to happen, allowing them to flag their needs, raise their concerns, and contribute to optimizing the process.
