How to Save Money Using a Corporate Recruiter

How to Save Money Using a Corporate Recruiter

If you have been in the corporate world for any length of time, you know that everyone dreads the hiring process. Finding quality candidates is notoriously difficult. Sorting through stacks of resumes, endless interviews, and reference calls can turn into a weeks-long or even months-long process. In the end, you still may turn up empty-handed. Whether you are a small start-up business or a large national chain, there are other tasks that you rather be doing. Successful companies are turning towards outsourced collaborative hiring using a corporate recruiter.

1. Find a Corporate Recruiter with Experience

Gone are the days of posting a job on Monster or Indeed and magically finding the perfect candidate. It isn’t uncommon for employers to receive thousands of resumes for a single position. Sorting through them is almost impossible. Using a corporate recruiter saves you the time, money, and headache associated with the hiring process. They know exactly what metrics to base an excellent potential employee on. An experienced recruiter has connections to potential passive candidates that may have never known about your position. While it takes a bit of effort at first, finding a good recruiter is vital.

2. Provide Your Recruiter with a Dream List of Qualifications

A skilled corporate recruiter can access their connections and match the perfect employee, but they need to know what you need. Take some time to draft a list of what your ideal candidate looks like. What is the required education, professional experience, certifications, or other qualifications that are necessary? After their search is complete, they will provide you with a shortlist of employees that perfectly fit your description of the ideal candidate. Countless hours are saved by not having to read through extensive resumes and cover letters.

3. The Right Employee Sticks Around

One of the most significant benefits of choosing a corporate recruiter is the longer retention rate of employees. When a new hire is a good fit, they are more likely to stick around for the long haul. This saves the employer in training costs and increases overall productivity and morale.

How to Set Up Recruitment Online

How to Set Up Recruitment Online

One of the most prominent challenges businesses face is how to attract top talent. This is especially true of startups who haven’t had the time to establish a reputation in the industry. The key is to generate an online recruitment program that not only helps you obtain the best candidates but also is in line with your overall branding goals. Intelli Hiring goes a step above traditional headhunters and enables you to establish effective recruitment online.

Step One: What Do You Need?

One of the most important tasks to do is to sit down and brainstorm the perfect candidate. What education, training, or experience would be ideal? What are some “must-have” characteristics? What are some elements of their background that would be a deal breaker? What does the job entail? Is it remote? Where do you see this position going in the long-term? Write everything down. It is valuable information for your agency recruiter.

Step Two: Let’s Chat

After establishing what you need, our talent acquisition specialists get to work. We access specific employment channels, talk to our connections, and put out the word that your company is hiring. We also can create an attractive website that will persuade job seekers to apply.

Step Three: Only the Best

One of the advantages and disadvantages of recruitment online are that you have access to a rather large pool of talent to pull from. However, sorting through the thousands of resumes and cover letters can take days or even weeks. Intelli Hiring picks and chooses only the best candidates for the position, leaving you with a handful of ideal people to choose from.

Step Four: Make the Hire!

After you have gone through the entire process, you are left with someone who is exceptionally qualified for the position. Using Intelli Hiring, this can happen rather fast. In fact, the average time from posting to hire can be as little as two to three weeks! When it comes to top tech talent, that is no easy feat.

3 Steps to a More Efficient Onboarding Process

3 Steps to a More Efficient Onboarding Process

You have made the perfect hire, but now the pressure is on to get them trained and assimilated. Your onboarding process should consist of creating a welcoming environment for the new hire while preparing them to take on their new role. Striking the perfect balance can be a challenge. Here are a few steps our clients have shared with us that helped lead to a more efficient onboarding process for their employees.

1) Prepare & Train Existing Employees to Manage New Ones

You can provide the best orientation system in the world, but if you don’t build a reliable support system for those new employees, they are destined to struggle. If you anticipate new hires, take some time to talk through the onboarding process and expectations in each department of your company. Listen to their concerns or questions, and craft a strategy on how to best assimilate the new hires into the company culture.

2) Prepare Workstations & Grant Program Access

Depending on how your office is structured, you may need to take some time and prepare their workstations. Make sure that each desk has the necessary supplies, everything is assembled correctly, and the chairs are in working order. A big time-saver is to prepare their arrival by already loading their work computer with necessary programming and apps. You could go one step further by ensuring they will have access to the programs you routinely use by granting permissions using their new work email accounts.

3) Plan a Fun Interactive Event or Lunch

Getting to know your new employees needs to be a priority. Building professional relationships between employees gives you the cohesiveness to build a successful company. Plan a fun work event or lunch within a week of their first day. Try to create a relaxed, casual environment where people feel comfortable to chat. Find out a bit more about them and what their career goals involve.

4) Follow Up

Make sure to follow up with new hires after they have been with your company for a few months. Talk to them about what they found was successful during their first initial weeks, what was challenging, and how you can do better. This will help further dictate how you shape your onboarding process.

How to Collaborate with an Agency Recruiter

How to Collaborate with an Agency Recruiter

Whether you are a tech start-up, or an established business in your industry, finding the right employee is stressful and time-consuming. Successful companies hire an agency recruiting service to lead the search and choose the right talent. While your recruiter will be incredibly efficient in finding the right candidate, you can help streamline the process. Here are a few ways you can collaborate with an agency recruiter to find the perfect fit for your business.

Create a Profile of Your Perfect Candidate

Before you send your recruiter out on a search, it is essential that you sit down and have an in-depth discussion on what you are looking for. Spend some time brainstorming precisely what you need to fill the role. In a perfect world, what type of education, certifications, or experience would this person have? Would they be a team player? Are you looking for someone with a flair for management? Imagine what your ideal candidate looks like. Write down a list that is composed of the following categories:

  • Must have qualities
  • Preferred characteristics
  • Any deal breakers

Lay Out a Timeline for Your Agency Recruiter

Sometimes finding the right person can take some time, but sometimes you need a new hire in a hurry. Talk to your agency recruiter about when you would like to have the position filled. Depending on your timeline, it may change the strategy your agency recruiter employs to seek out qualified candidates. Generally speaking, entry-level candidates require a relatively quick search while seeking out upper management and corporate heads can take a bit longer. Set your expectations and communicate with your recruiter. They are there to make this search easy and painless for you.

Managing Remote Employees in Tech

Managing Remote Employees in Tech

Gone are the days of every employee having a physical presence in the office during the 9-5, at least in tech. Many companies are relying on the flexible schedule of the remote employee to attract the best talent from around the world. This change in an employee-employer relationship has shifted everything from the onboarding process to day-to-day operations. The benefits of remote employees are vast. Tech companies need to adjust their management style to overcome the specific challenges that come with them.

Set Reasonable Expectations, Parameters, and Goals

One of the most significant challenges of remote employees is structure. Tech companies need to lay out precisely what they expect of their remote employees, any specific hours they need to work, and what goals they should be hitting. While it sounds somewhat constraining, it provides much-needed direction. Remote employees may feel a bit disconnected in their role without adequate guidance.

Effective Communication

When you have remote employees that are in different time zones, communication can be tricky. There are numerous tools out on the market to help streamline communication and promote collaboration. Slack, Basecamp, and Wrike are just a few project management and communication tools to help you connect effectively with remote employees.

Culture and the Onboarding Process

Even when employees aren’t in your office, it is important that they still feel as though they are part of a team. Structure your onboarding process to emphasize your company’s mission and help them feel connected. Start with video-based training and coaching to get them assimilated. Touch base with them face-to-face, or video-to-video during regular intervals. Ask them for their input on how to make things better. When they have ownership in the process, they will feel like part of the team.
