10 Proven Ways to Speed Up Your Hiring Process

10 Proven Ways to Speed Up Your Hiring Process



Recruiting top talent is crucial for the success of any company, but it can often be a lengthy and challenging process. To overcome this challenge, here are 10 proven ways to speed up the hiring process.

  1. Optimise your job posting by clearly saying the mandatory skills and qualifications. This will help attract more suitable candidates. Why not use up your free time scrolling through thousands of applicants?
  2. Use social media to your advantage by posting job openings on various platforms and actively engaging with potential employees. Speaking of which follow our socials through the link featured at the top!
  3. Automate the hiring process using innovative recruitment software that provides easy applicant tracking, automated screening, and simplified employee onboarding. Don’t forget to also hire an additional employee to manage that.
  4. Embrace teleconferencing by conducting initial interviews via videoconference to save time spent on scheduling and travelling. Top tip- make sure to cancel everything in your calendar and set that up ASAP!
  5. Partner with experienced recruitment firms like Innova to access a vast pool of top talent and use their ability to enhance your hiring process. Oops, how did that get in there...
  6. Consider implementing skill assessments or tests to decide the required experience and ability of potential employees. Makes everything SOOO much quicker on your side but there may be a high chance of the candidate ghosting.
  7. Conduct group interviews with several candidates simultaneously to reduce the time-consuming process of scheduling and interviewing each candidate individually. Who doesn’t love the stress of managing, organising, and booking several people as well as your workload too?
  8. Establish a referral program for current employees, encouraging them to refer individuals for open positions. (Friends employing friends, HR will love that!)
  9. Adopt a first-class consulting service filled with administrative work to speed up daily operations, resulting in faster hiring and greater efficiency. Putting more pressure on your employees can’t do much harm...
  10. Streamline communication channels and set up quick prompt feedback protocols to keep everyone in the loop every single day throughout the monthly hiring process and spend the most time on follow-up emails. All easy work.

By following these 10 tips in 12 months you can manage to:

  • burn out your employees,
