High volume hiring is often used when companies are growing or have a large one-time project requiring extra hands. This means the hiring often happens at lightning speed. This kind of hiring can be stressful if not handled in the most organized and efficient way. So how can you reduce stress when hiring in high volumes? Here is some of our best advice.
How Can You Reduce Stress When Hiring High Volume of Applicants
Make Applying Easier
The first step is to streamline your application process. When an application is challenging, you risk losing out on qualified candidates, not just screening unqualified people. An online application with an easy-apply button is what most job seekers want to see.
Match Job Descriptions to Expectations
Hiring is inefficient when there is uncertainty about the role in question. It often happens when a person is hired before the job is clearly defined. Don’t wait for this step. Determine the expectations for the position, including how success is measured, and use that to inform the job description. You don’t have time for trial and error when you’re doing high-volume hiring.
Use Job Matching Technology
There is no reason to reinvent the wheel. Using an applicant tracking system, you can better match skills and experience to the job faster and more efficiently. This will take a lot of time off hiring, screening, and onboarding the new workforce.
Work with a Staffing Partner
You also don’t have to do this alone. Working with a staffing partner will give you access to their vast resources and the ability to hit the ground running with a contingent workforce as you ramp up your project. Contact them early in the process and clearly communicate your needs and expectations.
