Saving Time in Staffing

How to make your staffing process easier

Ninety-five percent of hiring is done to fill existing positions, according to the Census and Bureau of Labor Statistics. Developing a strategy for staff retention is not always easy but it can greatly benefit your business. The first step is to establish a staffing process that will help identify top candidates. Here are three tips to make your staffing process more efficient and what PeopleReady can do to help make it happen.

Stay organized during the process

Hiring managers and recruiters spend hours trying to find the right person for the job. An efficient staffing process can help you make quality staffing decisions time after time. It also gives you the right structure so you can scale your team quickly and effectively meet last-minute deadlines and long-term business goals. One recommendation: Create a schedule with a list of duties and assign each one to a member of your team. Examples include:

  • Sourcing candidates
  • Reaching out to candidates
  • Conducting phone screens
  • Schedule follow-up interviews
  • Complete onboarding tasks

Be able to communicate effectively with candidates

Great candidate relationships start with regular communication, whether that’s by phone or through email or text. According to a HR Technologist report, 80% of job seekers say that they would not re-apply to a company that didn’t notify them of their application status. Using an app or another form of technology can help make staying in touch much easier. As a result, candidates are always aware of next steps and fully engaged throughout the staffing process. This is a crucial part of maintaining interest in your open positions and building trust among your potential workers.

Have a rating or ranking system in place

Having the right workforce has remained the No. 1 concern of CEOs in recent years, according to The Conference Board. The staffing process is compromised when you don’t have a way to measure the best candidates for your business. One of the best ways to structure an interview is a rating or ranking system that allows you to compare and contrast candidates. Creating a consistent scale that judges workers based on their skills and qualities gives you a template for success.

What’s the secret to a smooth staffing process? That’s easy. Just bring back the workers you’ve used before. With PeopleReady and our app, JobStack, you can:
