On a warm Sunday evening, I sauntered languidly around the market area to grab some groceries. Suddenly, something amidst the crowd caught my attention. I was stupefied when I observed a lot of commotion around Café Coffee Day- a coffee shop in the vicinity. I was wondering what’s happening and guess what? It was 24th June, all the onlookers and people inside the café had conglomerated around the television and were basking in the glory of 2018 FIFA World Cup. England vs Panama and I learnt that England had their biggest ever win at a World Cup that day!
Even though football is just a game, yet it holds such a significant footing in the world of sports. It may seem surreal, but imagine a troop of players, chasing one ball to score a goal as if their whole life depended on it!
By the same token, the game of recruiting has paramount importance in the life of candidates. A bunch of aspiring candidates compete for a single position with a hope that each one of them stand a chance of getting selected as though it’s a matter of life and death for them too. Needless to say, it’s like playing Russian roulette! You never know what’s in store for you!
Challenges that are crippling Hiring- Finding the right talent
The American author and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar, says it all when he quotes, “You don’t build a business- You build people- and then people build the business.”
There’s no question that the key resource for any organization is its workforce. And it’s a given that hiring the pick of the bunch is an utterly onerous task as the average time taken to hire a new employee is 23 days according to Glassdoor. Another reason is many candidates lack key skills required for the role as a result acquiring the ideal candidate is back breaking.
I am sure, we all are familiar with the typical approach undertaken by a recruiter when it comes to scouting talent. It all looks fair, until a day comes when the recruiter experiences candidate dropouts due to delay in interviewing candidates.
Delay could be due to lack of interviewing experts internally or interviewer/ candidate non-availability etc. Recruiters and hiring managers literally have to juggle time to expedite the hiring process. More so, since interviewing candidates is not the core job of these members, delay in interviews is inevitable. This is reason enough why most companies are turning to outsource interviews.
After all, Renee West, former President/ C.O.O. at Luxor and Excalibur Hotel very rightly said, “You can have the best strategy and the best building in the world, but if you don’t have the hearts and minds of the people who work with you, none of it comes to life.”
To add to the agony, the members who execute interviews aren’t equipped or trained sufficiently enough to hold out interviews which is sad. However, this is not the case always, and this brings me to another point, i.e. candidate bias. The internal experts involved in interviewing may end up hiring candidates of their choice which might possibly have an element of prejudice. This is in no way favorable for company’s growth and can lead to detrimental consequences.
With all this under our belt, it’s imperative that companies switch gears and join hands with technology that can take them to the next level. And the answer lies in outsourcing interviews as it has the efficacy to revolutionize recruitments in massive ways
