Tired of the same results, fed up of coming to a dead end? Looking for an alternative to resolve your recruitment issues? Are you searching for new ways to boost your recruiting strategy? If the answer is yes then you are on the right track.
So if you are pondering about, “How to optimise your Recruiting Strategy?” then let me assist you with a few pointers that will be useful.
Accept that you have a problem
I know that this sounds ridiculous, well it’s not. Because the first step to finding new alternatives is that you first need to accept that you have a problem. So that you can proceed to finding other options that you haven’t explored as yet. Once you admit that you have a problem it helps you to think clearly and even point out the problems that may occur or haven’t yet come to the fore.
Prioritise any Challenges that you might have
The best way to tackle more than one challenge at a time is first and foremost to jot them down and then prioritise them on the bases of its importance and the magnitude of the effect they pose when scouting talented individuals. Also look for any loop holes that you may not have encountered just yet.
Next Set your Goals and Objectives
When setting your goals and objectives make sure you are clear about them and ensure that they are clear and specific so that you and your whole team understands them fully. There shouldn’t be any ambiguity in the goals and objectives laid out. And if any points are unclear to you or your colleagues make sure you resolve them then and there. Remember to make them realistic as far as possible.
Form an Action Plan
Once you have clarity of thought of all the aspects; then come the hard part. You need to now formulate an action plan that covers and caters to all those problems that you pointed out or that were highlighted during the entire process. Once you have a plan in place, then you need to use it, all the while looking for loop holes or issues that might or that arise.
Time to Measure the Progress
So to ensure that you are actually progressing and not stuck in a loop, you need to measure your progress with the same action plan. A tool that just might be helpful is LinkedIn’s Recruiter score card feature. This can be a handy tool to explore and find out how effective your plan has actually been and whether you need to modify the way in which you are recruiting.
Create a Change Management Strategy
Now that you have a definitive action plan, you also need to come up with another plan, called the change management strategy. This is your safety net if in case the new plan doesn’t work and it definitely needs to be either a modified version of the current plan or a whole new one.
Reward the Success
Upon measuring the results you also need to reward the success that you receive and create a plan to improve the situation if it’s a negative one. So you also need to form a plan that can boost and improve one’s attitude towards a negative situation, so that you can give yourself that boost to keep trying until you find a plan that works. If there are imperfections also learnt to appreciate them so that you improve them.
Well I hope this information was as useful to you as it was for me to mention it. So can do you remember the popular saying, it has a little twist so you don’t hit the same wall every time, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, and try again. Then quit. There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.” – W.C. Fields.
