When it comes to filling in job vacancies with the right people, time is usually the number one concern. Recruiters tend to focus on finding candidates the fastest they can to ensure all functions of business still go as planned. This is where efficiency is perceived the wrong way.
Recruiting new hires costs a lot for the company, especially when done urgently. A long-term strategy like talent pipelining will help cut costs while fastening your recruitment process. Look at it as a safe net: having a readily-available list of candidates before the vacancies are even open.
Now, what are the right steps we should take to have a productive talent pipeline? First, the mindset has to shift: find candidates that your company will want in the future as your business needs grow. Keep an eye on Industry trends, and base your candidate profiling on forecasted Industry data.
Next, transform your reactive recruiting process into a proactive one. Conduct headhunting continuously and be on the lookout 24/7 7 days a week for potential candidates. Utilize digital platforms to grasp widely in a shorter time.
You should also build a trustworthy relationship with the pipelined candidates by engaging with them regularly. Let it be known that your company is, and still is, the right place for these candidates to go and reach their career goals.
