Recruiting With Quantity Over Quality in Mind?
Yep, most people do it. It seems the most logical way for some hiring managers/internal teams. usually because of the following:
- You are not sure what you want
- You need to fill the vacancy quickly, so the more agencies work on the role the better (wrong!)
- You do not understand the role
Sometimes you want to make a decision quickly, the more options you have, the longer it takes you. Having more options does not equal quality - let me say that again, options when it comes to recruiting, does not equal quality.
The longer it takes you, the more likely you are to make a snap decision and it’s usually the wrong decision
Mum, Dad's, Grandparents, Aunties, whoever you are have probably been shopping with a baby/toddler in tow. Shopping with a baby or toddler is stressful. Especially when they are hangry! For instance, imagine you are shopping in a supermarket and looking for some Baked Beans, Heinz in particular. You have a screaming kid at you, and you just want to get out of there. Instead of asking for help because you can not see it, you pick another version up of Baked Beans up.
Now you have paid twice, for the one item you needed.
You go home, open the can of Baked Beans, and the little kid hates it. Spits it out, she prefers the Heinz Baked Beans. You have a kid that is even more hangry than before which equals more stress, you ask yourself why you didn’t just ask for help the first time! The first lot of Baked Beans were useless. You don’t like it either, so it goes in the bin. Now what are you doing to do? Start again. Go back to the grocery store and pick up the can of Heinz Baked Beans – now you have paid twice, for the one item you needed.
It's overwhelming, it's time consuming..
Ever feel like this when you have to recruit someone?
It's overwhelming, it's time consuming, and you do not have time to interview everyone, because let's be honest, time is money.
You want guidance on who the people on the piece of paper are. The information on the CV are the ingredients on the back of the Baked Beans tin. Difference is, candidates do not always have ALL their information on a CV. You might bypass a really great candidate because they were not prepped before being sent to you.
I would as a hiring manager, prefer being sent one really good candidates CV, than three or four OK’ish CV’s.
Engage with your agencies, your in house teams, your hiring managers and really dig deep to find out what they need and match those requirements. Guide them.
