Recruiting good people takes lots of time, energy and focus.
In my current busy work schedule it’s almost impossible to find a block of time to sit down and rattle through recruitment tasks. So I’ve tried to focus on doing just one or two recruitment based tasks each day.
I’ve come to realise that this is much more effective than leaving all of the tasks to bunch up and create a daunting wall of project work.
To work through this backlog I’ve found it particularly useful to block time out in my calendar specifically for recruiting. An hour here and an hour there works a treat.
The Dev management team here at NewVoiceMedia share a backlog of recruitment tasks all focused on evolving our recruitment process to be industry leading. We want to hire the best people in the industry to help us achieve our business goals so we need to evolve our recruitment process to be the best it can be too.
Your own recruitment process will likely reflect the amount of effort you put in to it. It takes time (and hence costs money) to create a good recruitment process but it’s time and money well spent.
If you feel you have a daunting wall of recruitment goals and tasks then try breaking them down and kick start daily actions towards your recruiting goals.
