A hiring strategy is a clear plan that explains what roles you’ll recruit for, when, why and how. It should be tied to your overall company objectives.
Your strategy must be possible to implement and easy to communicate.
Hiring people is easy. Recruiting, screening, and hiring the right candidates, however, is not such a simple process.
In fact, most companies are far from perfecting the process. Nearly three in four companies admit they have been negatively impacted by a bad hire, citing lowered productivity, lost time to recruit and train another worker and compromised quality of work as the resulting outcomes.
This is why it is so vital to develop and implement an effective hiring strategy that can guide your human resources team through the employee recruitment and hiring process. When you fail to plan, you plan to fail, so your hiring and recruitment strategies are essential to helping you source, qualify, and place the right candidates in the right positions.
While you can tweak your tactics, the strategy must always be clear.
