Hiring the right people is always a big concern for companies and organizations. After all, making a mis-hire can be extremely costly in terms of time, energy, resources, and money.
Hiring is an investment, and you want to earn a return on that investment. The best way to do that is to hire a great job candidate who offers a lot of value, makes numerous contributions to the organization, and ultimately boosts its bottom line is a big way.
That’s why the size and the depth of the talent pool from which you draw your job candidates is perhaps the single biggest factor affecting the quality of your hires.
As you might imagine, if you want to hire the best job candidate possible for an open position, you must make sure of the following two things:
What’s the difference between the two? In terms of a wide talent pool, that means drawing quality talent from as many different places as you can. This can refer to geographical regions or to sourcing methods. In terms of a deep talent pool, that reflects how many quality candidates you’re able to identify.
In other words, you want both a diverse talent pool of quality candidates and you want a high volume of quality candidates. That’s the best possible outcome. Some might call it an unrealistic outcome, but it’s what employers should strive for. It should be their ultimate hiring objective.
So this is where a problem enters the picture.
If you’re an employer and your only strategy for sourcing job candidates for your open positions is to use online job advertisements, then your talent pool becomes instantly smaller. But wait, there’s more. Do you believe that every single person who starts to fill out an online job application actually finishes the application? Of course not. That’s unrealistic.
Many online applications are not easy. They’re cumbersome and time-consuming. They can even be confusing. When that’s the case, job candidates are likely to simply close their Internet browser and look elsewhere for possible employment opportunities.
In today’s marketplace, employers must be proactive in their hiring efforts. You might even say that they should be aggressive. Sure, you can use online job advertisements. You can post your jobs on the company website and also post them through the various online job boards.
However, this is why using an experienced staffing agency helps to “cover all the bases” when it comes to your hiring.
