When your company is very small, you can often rely on referrals when you need to hire someone. Growth is tight-knit. The people you bring in are usually ones you know or are colleagues of ones you know. But as soon as your company grows beyond that initial handful of team members, growing right requires a sophisticated level of recruiting leadership that will allow you to not only define your culture and goals but also to attract and recognize the right talent.
It Takes More than Just a Help Wanted Ad
There are so many people looking for work that a help wanted ad will simply inundate you with applicants, providing no real ability to discern who is a good fit. Since it’s unlikely that your recruiters are going to sift through 500 (or 5,000) résumés, your talent pool will be limited to the first 20-25 reasonably qualified applicants – or fewer – that come across your recruiting leader’s desk.
Will you find someone to hire? Probably. Will you find someone to hire who is not only a good fit culturally, but brings skillsets to your organization that will be beneficial both now and later? Unlikely.
Good Recruiting Begins with Developing a Powerful Recruiting Strategy
A powerful recruiting strategy is not just a checklist of ideal candidate traits. It’s a deliberate plan that aligns with an organization’s overall culture and goals. It identifies current and future talent needs. And it becomes a blueprint for growth, hiring, development, and retention. It becomes part of a company’s foundational structure.
Good Recruiting Requires Great Recruiting Leaders
A great recruiting leader does more than hire the right people. Recruiting leadership requires the ability to develop a strategic plan, obtain executive buy-in, manage and lead change, and motivate the recruiting team. It’s an influencer position. Your recruiting leader drives the success of an organization. Becoming a great recruiting leader takes time – and guidance. That’s where Beacon Lane’s Recruiting Leadership Program comes in.
