Turnover's Going to Rise: Is Your Recruiting Solution Up to the Task?

13 July 2016

Heads up: Employees — and not just millennials — are staying at companies for an average of only four years, according to a report from LinkedIn. That’s a steady flow of employees coming in and out of your company every 1,460 days. Is your recruiting team ready for that kind of velocity?

To find out the answer, ask yourself three questions:

  • Is your organization adequately using social networking and career sites?

  • Does your organization have a single centralized hub for managing the entire hiring life cycle?

  • Are your recruiting dashboards configurable and role-based to make recruiting more effective and efficient?

Many companies make it too hard on themselves. They take an old-fashioned approach to recruiting that costs them a lot of time and money, and results in lower-quality candidates and hires. Scatter-shooting posts on job boards comes to mind.

Companies that invest in their recruiting processes can attract, evaluate, and manage candidates easier and faster. But before we talk about how to get there, let’s address some of the key areas in your recruiting process to consider regardless of how you move forward.

Believe it or not, social media usage is everywhere. Is your recruiting process as ubiquitous?

Sixty-five percent of adults are now on social media, according to a study from Pew Research Center. The same study found that 90 percent of young adults use social media.

Also consider that 80 percent of U.S. candidates looking for a job use job boards to search for employment, according to the 2015 Candidate Behavior Study from CareerBuilder. Job seekers are using social media and job sites to find employment. Shouldn’t your recruiting software meet them there?

If it’s not managed well, the recruiting process can take a long time. Is your recruiting process easy to manage?

Twenty-seven percent of recruiters responding to a survey published on the MRINetwork said lengthy hiring practices held managers back from hiring. There’s plenty of room for improvement.

Your recruiting software should provide a single place to manage the entire hiring life cycle to enable maximum efficiency for your recruiters and employers. This will save your recruiting team time and money.

Dashboards can be unwieldy and unstable. Does your recruiting process allow for configurable, roles-based dashboards?

Organization is everything. You and your recruiting team should be able to visualize all the information you need in one place, and you should be able to choose that information, too.

That’s where Workterra Recruiting can help.
