Hiring efficiency is about making the right decisions while spending as few resources as possible. So, why waste time you don’t have?
Hiring efficiency. A few years ago when scaleups mentioned this ‘term’, the first thing that popped into mind was candidate screening. And my second thought was that hiring efficiency is only a relevant topic only when hiring a huge amount of people or receiving a huge amount of applications.
In reality though, the foundation of your hiring efficiency is based on clarity of expectations – expectations of the job, the missing links in the team, and ultimately the ideal candidate profile in terms of skills, personality, and track record.
Which in essence is not a bad thing – after all, an efficient process simply means that things are done right.
However, many companies tend to forget that hiring efficiency largely impacts hiring quality as well. Inefficient processes raise the chance of making the wrong hiring decisions and might force candidates to walk to the competitor.
Don’t worry, I am not trying to sell Equalture to you in this playbook. I just want to open your eyes to the fact that when making successful hiring decisions – hiring quality and efficiency go hand in hand. 😉
