Dan explained why he believes that talent acquisition is becoming increasingly complex, and why employers who break the recruitment cycle away from the academic calendar might be able to hire more diverse talent.
Benefits of year-round hiring include:
1. Unlimited talent pool
Hire the best available talent, not the most available for your preferred hiring period.
2. Nurtured talent
Year-round hiring enables you to build engaged talent pipelines that reduce your time to hire and attraction costs and delivers higher conversion rates.
3. Improved talent diversity
Year-round hires are naturally more diverse as your applications will come from a broader pool, often those who are less well supported.
4. Increased operational inefficiency
Encouraging thousands of candidates into a shortened period of hiring creates bottlenecks. Spending more time finessing the candidates that do apply via targeted attraction, nurtured engagement and pre-cursor programmes will bring your applicant to hire ratios down.
5. Upskilled recruiters
By spreading the hiring load across the calendar, recruiters will become better at stakeholder management, more adept at project planning, and use their broader market knowledge to create innovative attraction strategies.
6. Enhanced market intelligence
Regular interviewing will keep your team up to date with the latest industry trends and inspire development; and your EVP and salary/ benefits package will be more responsive to market conditions.
