The Importance of Hiring Speed: Most Effective Ways to Stay Fully Staffed

As the job market has shifted in recent years, it’s never been more paramount to keep candidates engaged in your hiring pipeline. Revamping your hiring process and identifying areas for improvement is essential for any organization that needs to increase the hiring speed of qualified candidates. Keeping your team fully staffed is crucial for maintaining every part of your organization, as well as elevating morale among all employees.

Here are some of the most important ways to expedite the hiring process and keep your team fully staffed:

Use new recruiting methods. 

To find the best talent, employers are increasingly turning to new channels to source candidates. The technology landscape for recruiting is vaster than ever before, with numerous ways to engage and vet potential candidates. Embracing advanced recruiting methods, such as social media recruiting, video conference interviews, and application tracking systems, you can expand your net of potential candidates without having to spend an enormous amount of time or money on initiatives like job advertisements or career fairs.  

Consider hiring temporary employees. 

Many companies have achieved great workforce success by hiring temporary employees on a rotational or seasonal basis. As permanent employees are harder to come across, temp employees can fulfill your workforce demands without the hassle of investing in full-time staff. One of the most appealing aspects of temporary staffing is flexibility as your workforce needs change from time to time. It also gives your leadership team the unique opportunity to “try out” potential full-time hires and evaluate their ability to fulfill workplace demands.

Partner with a staffing firm. 

No matter how competent your HR team may be, partnering with a staffing firm can dramatically improve every stage of your hiring process – from recruiting to onboarding. This is because a staffing firm is equipped with the tools and resources to actively source both active and passive candidates, as well as conduct all screening and interviewing procedures in a relatively quick timeframe. If your organization has frequent hiring needs, a staffing firm can help immensely to reduce staff turnover and keep your workforce running at an optimal level, regardless of limited time and hiring resources internally. 

By implementing the practices above, you can accelerate your hiring process without compromising staffing outcomes. With the combination of new technologies and staffing partnerships, your organization will keep running full speed ahead.
