As the custodians of Talent, Recruiters play a very important role in an organization. Recruiters are the gateway for the new talent that helps organizations scale up and reach success, and as such, it is in everyone’s best interests that they are helped to be successful at their job roles. In this post, we will see some tips that will let you help your recruiters:
Share all possible details
Need to know is something that is good only in the secret world. In the corporate world, it pays to be as open and transparent as you can be. When you brief your recruiters, make sure to do it exhaustively. Tell them all the conditions and preferences you have so that they can source the best candidates for you. Instead of wasting time later, your recruiters can screen the list and shortlist the best possible candidates for you.
An applicant tracking system (ATS) is one tool today’s recruiters can’t do without. It helps them stay organized and allows them to be in continuous communication with all the stakeholders on both sides of the table. Acting as a personal assistant, it keeps them informed of everything they need to be. It helps in all recruitment tasks like sourcing, shortlisting, communication, and scheduling. By integrating the ATS with job portals and other HR modules, you can save a lot of time and be organized.
Train them to communicate
Recruiters are in a way the ambassadors of your organization. Since any new talent first hears officially from the company through the recruiter, it is a good idea to train your recruiters to communicate well. You want them to attract talent and not put them off with their inconsistent or improper communication. Therefore ensure that your recruiters are putting your points across and making the case for your company well.
