Raise your hand if you’re incredibly tired of “doing more with less.”

Everyone? Yep, we get it.

 Fortunately, there are ways you can manage your recruitment budget that doesn’t mean longer hours and other frustrating compromises. You can bring in ideal candidates at a lower cost without sacrificing the important parts of your process.

 Ready to find out how? Let’s dive in.

 

Take Advantage of Automation

Being able to have your processes automated so they don’t take up your precious time is a lifesaver — but not if it breaks the bank. We have good news. At Hiringcue, we offer pre-interview questionnaires and automated reference checks using a simple credit system.

You’re not locked in, and each credit is very affordable. It’s easy to test our system and see if it works for you without having to get signoff for tens of thousands of dollars for software.

 Automation saves you time because the candidate and the candidate’s references complete parts of the process on their own time. Can you imagine cutting down the number of interviews and eliminating phone tag, while still bringing in incredibly high-quality candidates?

 You owe it to yourself to give it a try. You can start your free trial today.

Carefully Target Ideal Candidates

Businesses all over the world have started to realize that they no longer have to spend the money it takes to cast a wide net for customers, hoping to catch a few. Instead, they can create highly targeted marketing campaigns that only reach their very specific ideal audience, saving them money while dramatically improving effectiveness.

The same is true for your recruitment campaigns. You have more data at your fingertips than HR departments 30 years ago could even imagine. Take advantage of it to target your job listing to the very specific candidates that would be ideal.

 From LinkedIn to Facebook, you have access to a great deal of information about people’s past work and interests. Use that to your advantage and cut recruitment costs in the process.

Reduce Time-to-Hire

We know that everyone wants a magic wand to reduce the time it takes to hire. We don’t have that, but we do have a lot of options that can streamline recruitment significantly.

 You already know that you get better candidates and fewer dropouts when you can move the hiring process forward quickly. So what are the tricks to make it happen?

 The automation we already mentioned is a big part of it. When you can put some of the hiring process in the hands of your candidates, you can get better information more efficiently with fewer interviews. You can also get more information from references using automated reference checks, compared to catching them on the phone in the middle of doing another task.

 Having a clear hiring process also makes a big difference. Knowing exactly what you need, who needs to give approval, and more can help speed up the process. Finally, offer candidates an excellent experience on your careers page. The more clear your job description and corporate culture description is, the more attractive your company will be.

Improve Your Recruitment Today

Your recruitment budget may be shrinking quickly, but the good news is that there are tools that can help you spend less without compromising candidate quality. Take advantage of pre-interview questionnaires to learn about candidates without an initial interview. Automated references let you get a more complete picture of candidates.
