The Recruitment industry is constantly changing in order to keep up with the changing times. Having; said that it’s obvious that the role of Talent Acquisitionist’s requires one to adapt to the changing Industry to preserve. Care to guess what the discussion will be covering?

You’ve guessed it right; we @SourcingAdda constantly try to keep Recruitment professionals updated about the current trends that are practiced. In an attempt to assist fellow Recruiters like your selves  we even conduct annual events like  #TASCON17 a Talent Acquisition and Sourcing Conclave where you get the opportunity to interact and network with the best minds in the Recruitment Industry. With that being said, in relation to our upcoming annual event the discussion was on, “The Changing Role of Recruiters”. And as popular these WhatsApp discussions go; here’s your chance to catch up with what was discussed if you’ve missed it but remember to review the key take away pointers right after and add to your knowledge. So here goes…

This brings an end to another informative discussion with lots of inputs to take back, review and add to your learning.  Having said, that we’re sure that you’d also like to reinforce what you’ve learnt hence here are the key take away pointers to help you retain what you’ve learnt easily…

Possible Roles Recruiters Play

There are several roles that Recruiters may be required to play now or in the near future so here’s what a Recruiter’s role might be, as…

  1. A Recruiter of the Future, you will be required to have strong interpersonal and project management skills while your task of sourcing and coordination / scheduling is automated.
  2. A Data Driven Analyst, your experience within the recruitment field is not going to be of much help due to the revolution in predictive analysis, machine learning, hiring algorithms and they must possess awesome skills in analysis.
  3. An Automation Domain Specialist, the traditional ways of maintaining data will have changed drastically. So it is more about the ‘Design of the ATS’ making it more efficient to avoid most of the ‘Data Entry Work.’
  4. One of the best Social Media Engagement Recruiters, you would have already set the benchmark for others to follow hence every Recruiter will have to focus beyond ‘LinkedIn’.
  5. A Customer Experience Management, where we refer to a customer as being both – candidates as well as other stakeholders in the hiring process. For instance in a global village, wherein there are zillions of opportunities waiting for ‘good candidate’; customer experience is going to be the key factor.
  6. A Recruiter finding ‘The One’ in the Matrix, where every resume looks more or less the same is going to be difficult. Here Candidates can choose impressive resumes and just white paper it. The role of the recruiter is to find the candidates who aspire to be ‘Neo’ from Mr. Anderson.
  7. A Recruiter, just posting Jobs and Praying isn’t going to work any longer in fact Internal Recruiters must be trusted advisors to Hiring managers. While External Recruiters will have to not only find Talent that Internal Recruiters can’t find but also get candidates across the table for discussions.
  8. A Sales Guy, you’ll be expected to know how to pitch to tech wizards and geniuses in a way they get interested in the role and company.
  9. A Consultant, providing consultation to hiring managers, stake holders based on the availability of Talent VS Budget.
  10. A Liason, you’ll be expected to network, meet talent to build your database and pipelines
  11. A Marketing Executive, you’ll be expected to help sales folks and even pre – sales folks on talent availability and feasibility of hiring.
  12. An Internal Communicator, wherein you’ll be required to conduct innovative campaigns for driving employee referrals and / or employee engagement activities
  13. A Waiter / Bellboy, wherein they’ll have to escort candidates into and out of the premises, arrange parking in some cases, deliver /offer tea coffee, organize lunch.
  14. A CEO / Senior Executive, where you’ll have to talk about your services, good culture, initiatives and balance sheets at conferences / to individuals
  15. A Family Member, where you’ll have to be concerned about the candidates, enquire about their good health, advise them like doctors if they have issues, last but at the least convey that they are not joining / dropping out of interviews as their uncle or grand – parents are either dead or injured in accidents.
  16. A Real Estate Agent, for some candidates to help them hunt houses

In short the roles of a Recruiter are changing rapidly where it will be essential for them to do much more than just be a postman matching keywords. Having, said that they will be required to spend less time with paper or data but more time in interacting with people.  So if you’ve read this far then you now have a brief idea about the roles you’ll likely be expected to play in the near future. Therefore, you need to begin to focus on building some of the above mentioned skills to remain upbeat with the changing roles and perform exceptionally with the changing times.

WhatsApp Group Chat – Relevance of Recruiters asking Candidates about their CTC in the selection process

As Talent Acquisitionist’s we follow procedure to procure information that can help us sell the position better and on board the Talent with the credentials and calibre we know are perfect for the role. Questions like current CTC, the profile the potential Talent is looking for are a few examples of procedural questions asked. Having said that, have you ever thought of its relevance in Candidate selection? If not then here’s a chance to find out for yourself and add to your knowledge.

We @SourcingAdda are constantly striving to assist our fellow Talent Acquisitionists to remain updated with the current trends and practices that are followed. More importantly we are able to do that due to the efforts of our group members; one of them being Vineeth from the Pune group. As per his suggestion our discussion topic was on, “Relevance of Recruiters asking Candidates about their CTC in the selection process, in reference to the article, “HR why? They need current CTC “Cost to company” To view it visit – https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/hr-why-need-current-ctc-cost-company-gagan-malhotra on 2 parameters namely,

  1. Should Recruiters ask candidates about their CTC?
  2. How will this information help them?”

As always we’ve received an outpour of responses, and we’re sure you’d like to know more so we’ll be sharing the discussion shortly, meanwhile do remember to view the key take a way pointers that are highlighted right after. So here goes…

 

 

Well the informative discussion ends with a lot of views expressed, inputs to take back and add to your learning; especially, when the discussion addresses important and sensitive aspects like the CTC of the Candidate. Although asking a potential Candidate for their current CTC is procedure how relevant do you think it is? So here’s a chance to find out by reviewing the key take away pointers, so let’s begin…

Accept certain facts

  • If you have something to offer it comes with a price and shopping for Talent requires a careful thought process.
  • Realise that it’s the business that calls the final CTC especially if it’s a billable resource
  • Sometimes companies have to go beyond their budget to on board a good candidate in the organization.
  • Ultimately money is what interests the candidate for a switch
  • Having CTC discussions are of prime importance but at a later stage for certain
  • Even if in the early stages prospective candidates claim otherwise, money is a great motivator because it’s an important aspect.
  • You always need to respect that and play your cards accordingly and you’ll come across several candidates that ask about the salary they’ll get up front.
  • For a candidate there is at least a max of 10 options or companies available where the candidate can join after clearing the interview.
  • For a recruiter they might have 50 odd options for just one position
  • Realise that you’re dealing with a human and not a machine so respect that
  • Recruiters simply cannot afford to ignore CTC or leave it out of discussions
  • HR or Recruiters have a budget within which they have to hire; hence, asking current and expected CTC is absolutely fine and an expected norm.
  • Recruitment is not just skill mapping
  • Cost is one of the most important elements of selection
  • The CTC offered depends on which industry you are hiring for like service industry or product and everything has a budget and numbers are what matter for the management panel.
  • Recruitment is referred to as a job market where; in the job market a candidate has their individual skills, experience, talent, education etc… that are their USPs.
  • Disclosing salary information to an entity which might not even associate with the organisation would just broadcast the core that’s meant to be confidential for multiple reasons including but not limited to market – competition, budgets, payroll parity.
  • Businesses have certain operation costs and hence budgets have been allocated
  • Recruiters cannot simply offer fixed compensation without calculating the percentage hike
  • Passive candidate engagement is a different ball game all together.

Procedure to be followed

  • Recruiters work as per the client’s requirements so it’s important for the company to understand the hiring scenario especially if they are to come to an understanding about the range for the budget.
  • In an order to hire the right fit talent an organisation needs to have a right strategy of hiring
  • You need to check which level the candidate is being shortlisted for provided that the HR, Recruiter and the Delivery Team are ok in hiring at this level.
  • Check the Candidates Base Pay Target Ratio (BPTR) and it can create parity issues
  • When comparing the Candidate’s current CTC take in to consideration the benefits that they get apart from money as considering only money doesn’t attract middle level and above Talent.
  • Mostly the profiles we Source usually miss out information about the CTC, don’t have updated information, has vague figures and incomplete structures i.e. fixed, variable, benefits etc.
  • It’s perfectly alright to confirm the CTC over a call but provided the Candidate asks a question related to the CTC.
  • Although asking about the CTC may not be alright but having that information when you have a time constrain; asking for the CTC would be a good option as you’ll be able to make sure that you’re bringing in the right talent at the right cost besides your KPI is affected.
  • In fact if one follows the theory of going by the mentioned profile information, chances are that you might select the candidate especially the ones that have gone through a number of rounds that involve time, cost, you’re efforts including the time spent by various individuals from different levels in an organisation.
  • And as per your calculations you might offer the candidate something beyond market standards only to realise that their salary details were updated during the last appraisal cycle.
  • On stretched compensation is where a corporate Recruiter has to understand whether the role they are hiring for is strategic or operational in nature.
  • Recruiters need to consider the urgency, the available candidate pool and impact of a non-hire / late-hire has on business.
  • On the basis of the above mentioned aspects you can recommend a stretched budget or not for a particular role.
  • An initial budget of 15 lakhs that is closed at 28 Lakhs indicates poor research that went into the role definition, expectation setting (of hiring managers) and market research.
  • It put’s Corporate Recruiters capabilities in a poor light meaning that they haven’t done their homework or they haven’t been able to communicate effectively with the hiring managers or there could be a trust issue.

Possible Solutions

  • Rather than asking the Candidate about the CTC, let’s give the candidate the Job offer as well and if the candidate finds the offer appealing and meets their expectations they’ll take it else if they disagree then they’ll probably object and state their expectations.
  • A simple, honest approach might get you everything you may need for a successful screening
  • There are always other ways to find out the information; besides its essential that Recruiters make sure that there are not over paying the candidate than the company’s existing employees or the market standards.
  • In general Hiring trends normally a passive candidate will not look only for the CTC or you’d find them on job boards; which motivates them for a change.
  • Sometimes Passive candidates are found interested in the money; although they aren’t on, job boards.
  • With the right connections made or if you are on the right track you’ll be able to get the CTC without asking if you –
    • have industry connections
    • you know how to fetch the band structure which reveals the required initial level information
  • Irrespective of the budget, if you ask prospects of the CTC and assure them that you’ll try to get the best possible offer for them, it will give them comfort and confidence.
  • There is a trust factor that you need to establish though as the success ratio will be better if we can establish that faith; it’s generic but works a lot of times.
  • Expecting Recruiter’s to call every 50 candidate and tell them what they are offering as CTC to the Candidate is unfair.
  • Recruiters have certain parameters to shortlist candidates on; when calling 50 candidates is unfair, such parameters can be based on the experience or money.
  • CTC offer will depend on –
    • interview performance
    • how the profile is perceived which does not impress prospective candidates to present their candidature at least at entry level
  • For senior positions candidates ask for the “budget” in a sophisticated or refined manner to ensure that they will not be wasting their time.
  • While India doesn’t have a law against asking about the Candidates CTC a better approach is to ask the question; for this particular position, is it better to take a transactional approach to the selection process or should one take a strategic approach.

Relevant & Positive Aspects

  • Asking details regarding whether a Candidate is perfect for the role are aspects to focus on
  • Having information about Candidates current CTC helps in –
    • Negotiating the salary package, especially when there is a budget constraint
    • It also ensures that the replacement cost don’t exit opportunity cost
  • If the salary range for a position is between “x – y”, unless the recruiter knows the candidate is not <x, it will be a waste of efforts to proceed with the candidature.
  • A lot of countries have a role / experience based standard of benchmarking with the least disparity, data published online for everyone to see.
  • Discussion regarding the CTC helps in understanding Candidates attitude and aspirations
  • It’s important to ask about the CTC as it helps to decide about whether or not the Candidate is the best fit for the role.
  • Hiring any external resource without having comparative analysis with internal resources creates disparity and a low level of engagement.
  • Monitoring you potential Candidate’s digital footprints to gather content to take the conversation places is absolutely essential.

Irrelevant & Negative Aspects

  • Asking details regarding personal information like Candidates current CTC is not needed
  • India is the only country where Recruiters tend to ask so many questions about personal details
  • Abroad asking personal information like Candidates current CTC can be considered as an act of discrimination.
  • India cannot be compared with other markets
  • Salary information of any HR department in an organisation is black box information

Well this brings our informative discussion to an end with a lot of inputs to take back and add to our learning and help us stay updated with the best practices of on – boarding candidates. This entire conversation has been summed up substantially well by the members in a saying, “Recruitment is referred to as a Job Market where, in a Job Market a Candidate has their individual skills, experience, talent, education etc… that are portrayed as their USPs. Thus, if you have something to offer it comes with a price and one doesn’t blindly shop for talent.  It’s pretty basic!

Reasons for Layoffs

  • According to the Industry body ASSOCHAM warning the Indian IT firms may be forced to displace work force amid US tightening H-1B visa norms and rising rupee leading to lower software exports.
  • After the US tightened the visa norms, later Australia announced the scrapping of 457 visa used largely by Indian IT professionals.
  • According to research it was found that if there are layoffs in a large scale industry it is due to hiring done on a mass level for future project prospect and when firms don’t have any choice but to cut costs they lay off the bench employee’s during the performance appraisal.
  • Based on how the markets are there is a high possibility of India being the main service provider country in the world with the best human resource availability resulting in the European countries smoothing out the visa process.
  • Most of the companies are opting to fire non performing employees’ or they are reducing the bench Employees.
  • The market shows it as downsizing which is a regular practice

  4. Cut in overtime pay
  5. Salary Reduction

WhatsApp Group Chat – Difference between a Corporate HR and a Consultancy HR

We’ve spoken about HR from a general perspective and dealt with challenges accordingly but have you wondered if there’s a difference between a Corporate HR and a Consultancy HR?

Well if you haven’t then, you’d be glad to learn that we @SourcingAdda are here to assist you in remaining updated with the current practices in the profession that we’re all passionate about. And thanks to the Group members we are able to stay updated ourselves. Based on the Mumbai group member Amit’s suggestion we had a discussion on, “What makes a big difference between a Corporate HR and the HR from a Consultancy?”

As explained: see now – a – days many SME companies outsource their HR department to some Consultant or recruitment consultant. The Consultant place a recourse on client site to deploy HR practice or set up the HR department. In fact they get more exposure than co-operate HR. Still when these guys try to switch to a Corporate HR most of the companies reject the candidature just because these guys were working for a Consultant and not for companies. It is the same case for candidates working as a Recruiter applying as candidates.

Therefore let’s take a look at the conversation that took place and make sure to review the key take away pointers to retain what you’ve learnt right after. So here goes…

The informative discussion comes to an end with a lot of inputs to add to your learning and even get the queries you have resolved. But before we make our conclusions let’s review the key take away pointers to retain what we’ve learn and test our knowledge about a subject we are all passionate about. So here goes…
Recruitment bites

Recruiters Perspectives

  • The key to understanding the difference is to see whether there is substantial data to support the argument.
  • If it is personal experience then it cannot be generalised as an industry wide practice
  • What really matters is the quality of experience than the quantity (number of years) or the brand name of the company for that matter.
  • It is important for all of us to have hands-on experience and continue to keep your selves employable in the ever changing market scenario.
  • While Recruiters are also Candidates who have great qualifications, great companies on the resumes nevertheless you may become redundant, in future, in the market place.

Employer Perspectives

  • Companies hire candidates for the skills they possess and the value they bring to the table.
  • Companies don’t hire candidates because they have come from ABC school/college, etc. (or) xyz companies which is applicable across all levels.

Difference between a Corporate & Consultancy HR

Corporate Recruiter

  • A Corporate HR does complete end to end HR activity that is from HR, call to CTC fitment, to approvals and joining
  • These Recruiters would be specialist in particular areas with advanced skill-sets of hiring
  • As a Corporate Recruiter you don’t share profiles with the hiring manager until and unless you find it 90 to 100 percent fit or if you are 100 percent confident.
  • Recruiters try to look at the candidate from a hiring manager’s point of view before submitting the Candidate to them.
  • You mature and relate to the business more in a Corporate Environment
  • The distinguishing factor is ownership; Corporate Recruiters will have the ownership on end to end processes.
  • Corporate HR specialise in to recruitment where they directly interact with business personal and candidate wherein there is comparatively not much target pressure.

Consultancy Recruiter

  • Candidates from HR firms Source and come with complete market MI but not the last part of the operations therefore the preference changes according to the role requirement while hiring.
  • They function as a team to close a particular role
  • Working at a consultancy can give the same job satisfaction people expect out of a corporate job
  • These Recruiters come with wider market knowledge and understanding of companies, salaries, availability etc.
  • Recruiter at a search firm usually share CV even if it’s 50 to 60 per fit with the thought of letting the 2 parties involved decide which doesn’t cause any harm sharing etc.
  • Consultancy environment makes you robust to face the corporate so both complement each other
  • Consultancy Recruiters on the other hand will have ownership on the revenue
  • Core consulting HR usually gets end to end exposure with a lot of pressure to achieve targets.
  • Here mainly the leads have stake holder connections and where recruitment is concerned most companies rely on consultants for on – boarding Candidates.
  • Consulting HR policies change at the need of hour since they are controlled by owners which should not be the case.

Recruitment Facts

  • There is a very thin line of difference between working at a Corporate and a consultancy
  • A consultancy can operate like a Corporate as well
  • Candidate engagement processes, skills and knowledge vary in a Corporate HR and a Consulting HR
  • Things learnt and followed are different based on the exposure you get which is dependent on the firm you work for.

There you have it all the points to help you retain what you’ve learnt and review; to check if the information you have is updated. If not then you’ve just updated your information.

WhatsApp Group Chat – Best Unique HR Practices for Employee Benefit or Engagement in IT Sector

We’ve spoken a lot about trending HR practices for Employee benefit or Engagement in general and haven’t limited our thinking to any specific field. Therefore, in an attempt to get a better understanding as to the possible solutions for Employees we’ve conducted our popular WhatsApp discussions in relation to the IT sector.

Thus upon the request of our Gujarat group member Kirti the discussion was on, “Best unique HR practices for employee benefit or engagement or working for start – ups and especially for IT sector” and we’ll be highlighting the key take away pointers right after we disclose the discussion shortly hence be sure to review them so here’s what we’ve discussed…

The above informative and insightful conversation ends with a lot of points to take back and review. So if you’re wondering what these interesting titbits of information is then you’re in the right place as we’ll be highlighting them below. So let’s check what we’ve taken back by cross checking them with the ones mentioned below…

Possible Solutions

Positive Aspects

  • Have Career Counsellors assigned to employees who are not from the same team / managerial level enables one to plan, track the progress and map the Career interests in the job.
  • Create a system that embraces all the complex process a candidate goes through when deciding whether to apply to the vacancy.
  • The system created should simultaneously map out the commonly used methods that Talents use to satisfy their curiosity which help them make an informed decision about your company.
  • Consider the factors involved such as the workload of technical people within the IT sector and the start – up financial limitations when engaging Candidates.
  • Due to the IT sector being a booming industry with many new companies cropping up; giving Employees more options to choose from and find out whether a start-up is a good option which decreases the number of takers hence engagement is very important.
  • As an HR working for a start – up IT company; a major part of the employees are out stationed Candidates i.e. region or states hence Recruiters can help them in areas like accommodation, food and some level of communication which benefit a potential Employee are good practices to follow.
  • You can set aside a day that mainly focusses on Employee engagement such as hold meetings on a Saturday and let Employees discuss how they find the company culture and work given can be another good practice to follow.
  • The above mentioned practices that were decided on and implemented have been found to be successful in leading companies in India hence they are good practices to follow.
  • Rewarding them with 2 leaves in addition to their leave balance on completion of one year with the organisation, can be an incentive to retain Talent.
  • Organising regular meetings or once in 3 months with Talent without the involvement of managers or management people helps to understand their grievance or issues which can be related to managers or HR,  IT, Finance, Admin etc. can be a good incentive to retain Talent since it shows that you care.
  • Even sending e-mails to the respective of the function to resolve any issues Talent face well before the next meeting and keeping a close check on the completion of tasks can also help engage Talent and retain them.

Negative Aspects

  • Work culture can engage present employees but there’s a harsh reality that it may rarely work on any interviewee.

Current Scenario Challenges

  • In the present competitive world companies face a lot of skill shortage, talent crunch and attrition that have reached historical heights which makes companies realise that the existing internal customer base is equally important as with external customers.
  • Given the competitive scenario companies are required to devise innovative HR practices to attract best Talent.
  • It has been found that convergence of practices of different companies in different HR areas, where other companies have applied such practices that are beneficial to the company requires them to become more competitive in the global market.
  • Engaging employees whether Junior or Middle level are of utmost importance as they are usually the ones that work a lot.

Well this brings an end to another insightful session and we’re sure that you have found something worth your while. And you’re probably wondering how you can contribute to these discussions so here’s what you can do…
