How long should the interview
The saying strike whilst the iron is hot cant be truer the clients we work with that turn round 1st and 2nd stages within a week are the ones that have hired more this year and attracted the best talent.
Why is this important?
it beats your competition for starters but also shows the candidate that the company are serious about hiring and making decisions they feel wanted and confident the business is growing.
How many stages should there be?2 but no more than 3Its good to have a stage where you get them to meet the team ensures a good fit for the business and gets them to feel what it would be like to be part of the teamHave a strong structure in place and stick to it if you say 2 stages make sure you do it this way candidates generally feel more confident in joining companies with good hiring processesMake sure you give thorough feedback this again shows strong recruiting best practiceFeedback should be immediate candidates feedback straight away and you should ensure you do the same to keep the candidate engaged in your process
How should you make an offer?Managing expectations: Work closely with your Rec2 Rec dont just offer direct
The best offers are made and accepted when they are in line with expectations so if you want to ensure the offer is accepted work hand in hand with your R2R consultant to ensure that they know what you expect to offer and they can advise what they are likely to accept we are after all on the same side we want to secure you talent. Many candidates actually dont like to be offered direct and if you want to offer yourself we can work with you to make sure the offer is received properly - we know already what they are likely to thinkBe direct and offer a realistic package against their current and market value we can advise you throughout of what your competitors are paying in the market and how your overall offer sits against the market to make sure you are competitive in hiring top talent. For most people salary is more about how much you value them too.Dont leave it to them to set the package you want to make them feel wanted so listen to their expectations but you set the offer its indicative of how much you want to hire them and makes them feel valued. It can often come across as you want to negotiate their lowest level not what they are valued at.Dont leave it too long - If you have met someone 2-3 times candidates do expect an answer realistically within 24 hours you expect them to know whether they want to work for you in this time frame so the same applies!
Take too long and you seem disinterested.
