The bigger the company, the more complex and difficult the recruiting process inevitably
becomes. Growing companies are challenged with a lack of recruiting expertise and
processes that can keep them from making good hiring decisions. Developing a world-class
recruiting function is easier with outside eyes. If your interview cycles are ridiculously
long, if you're seeing marginally-qualified hires, or increased turnover at excessive
cost, it's time to look at the overall process. Talent Connections can help establish
the recruiting function for a growing company or improve the efficiency and quality
of what's already in place.
Often Talent Connections will conduct a Recruiting Process Audit to discover where your company's weaknesses and strengths are and then develop the recommendations for creating optimal results.

Talent Connections will train your interviewers to utilize five types of interviews (screening, skills, behavioral, confirming, and selling) to confidently screen candidates.
Is your recruitment effort planned with headcount and expense budgets? Are you aware of the time it takes to fill positions, or cost-per-hire and quality-of-hire statistics and trends? Do you know which sources and channels are most effective? Are you tracking EOE statistics for reporting? Putting processes and benchmark measures in place to ensure your recruiting process is yielding the best new hires, for a reasonable price, just has to be done. If you can show the CEO these types of trends, you're thinking strategically. Talent Connections can help.
