5 Ways to Streamline High Volume Recruiting

Finding the right people to hire in this market can be arduous, especially with the added pressure of filling multiple vacancies. In order to attract and hire the right people with limited resources and time you need to have a meticulous high volume hiring strategy in place. Here are five strategies that we believe will streamline your current process:

1. Leverage technology

Use an Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and Candidate Relationship Management (CRM) tools to streamline and automate the hiring process. ATS helps to track applications, resumes, and candidate information, while recruitment CRM allows recruiters to keep in touch with candidates and maintain a talent pool. These tools can save time and improve efficiency, making it easier to handle large volumes of candidates.

Top tip: Implement a configurable Applicant Tracking System which can adapt to your unique business need.

2. Use targeted job descriptions

Be specific about the job requirements and qualifications in your job descriptions to attract candidates who are a good fit. Use clear and concise language to make it easy for candidates to understand the job requirements and qualifications. This helps to ensure that you receive applications from candidates who meet your requirements, which can reduce the number of irrelevant applications.

Top tip: Implement a system that will help you avoid bias when writing job descriptions. Oleeo’s diversity hiring platforms are out-of-the-box solutions that help teams put Diversity Recruiting strategies into action.

3. Focus on employer branding

Showcase your company’s culture, values, and mission to create a positive image in the minds of potential candidates. Share stories and testimonials from current employees to give candidates a glimpse into what it’s like to work for your company. This can help you stand out from other employers and attract high-quality candidates.

Top tip: Learn from your current employees, knowing what attracted your current employees can help you strategically market your company to potential recruits.

4. Conduct efficient interviews

Conduct structured interviews to ensure that you ask all candidates the same questions in the same order. This helps to eliminate bias and ensures that you get the information you need from each candidate. Use video interviews or pre-recorded interviews to save time and make the process more efficient. This can help you to conduct more interviews in less time.

Top tip: Use psychometric testing, psychometric testing is used widely across the virtual recruitment industry, and can be incredibly useful for screening applicants, particularly if you have a high volume of applications for a single position.

5. Collaborate with hiring managers

Involve hiring managers in the Recruitment Management process to help identify the most qualified candidates. Ask them to review resumes and participate in interviews to ensure that you are hiring the best candidates for each role. This can help to reduce the time it takes to identify the right candidate and it can help to improve the quality of your hires.

Top tip: Use an ATS software that enables you to work collaboratively, allowing existing employees from across the organisation to sign in, review and update.
