You would never build a home without a detailed blueprint. And you can’t transform talent acquisition without a detailed plan for how candidate attraction, screening and selection will work. Starting with, say, recruiting technology is like expecting your builder to figure out the house with nothing more than the electrical plan.
Improving recruitment process is critical to initiating and sustaining talent acquisition transformation.
Recruitment process design details not only the hiring process, but includes when and how you will attract and screen top talent, determining the ideal candidate, how selection will work, how hiring managers will participate in hiring, how internal candidates will express interest in roles, which best practices you’ll integrate, which recruiting metrics will be most important, how your applicant tracking system will support it all – you get the idea.
We cover every element – even small ones - because the details differentiate your company from other employers in this tight talent market. Attractive job postings and job ads underpinned by solid job descriptions differentiate those companies that win talent from those who must settle for it. A tight interview process can be part of a positive candidate experience that enables winning top talent. And we analyze the big data behind your organization's open positions and broader talent trends so that you can be confident in your investment decisions.
“We originally made the mistake of letting our recruitment technology vendor sell us their version of process design. TGA came in a year later, when we were in bad shape, and provided objective guidance and hands-on support for building our recruiting function of the future - both inside and outside of the technology.”
