How Employee Reviews Can Improve the Hiring Process
It is a candidate’s market in hiring right now – and every interaction you have counts. It is up to you as an Human Resources leader to find every advantage you have and use it to improve your hiring process. There’s a lot of pressure on you to find the best new employees, introduce them to the company, equip them with the tools they need to succeed, and ensure they are ready to go.
It’s hard to do and you are probably thinking about revamping your hiring process as competition stiffens. Whether you are that human resource leader, a hiring manager, a business leader, or just an employee helping with the candidate selection process, you need to ensure that your recruitment process is as good as it can be.
One way to do that? Employee feedback. You can use your employee’s feedback to streamline the hiring process and experience to make it better, more complete, and more effective. You don’t want to get that feedback right when you had a job opening – you want it as soon as you hire a new employee and get them into onboarding.
During our webinar, How Employee Reviews Can Improve The Hiring Process, we taught you how the experience your candidate goes through before employment, from submitting their application, to the interview, and beyond, impacts them.
Why? Employees start evaluating your company from the second they click on a job opening and read the job description – even if they aren’t a qualified candidate. Their experience will determine whether they accept a job offer, the amount of effort they give, and even how long they will stay with your company. Getting feedback from employees who have gone through it – or even more importantly, as they go through it – can give you insights into what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong.
