Mass recruitment in any sector can be a time-consuming process, but if you’re managing recruitment from home, it can feel hugely rewarding to find a solution that works for you, around any other family commitments you might have.
Here are four ways you can create a streamlined mass recruitment drive from home.
Advertising extensively is a great way to ensure that you can receive a huge number of applications to fill your vacancies.
One way to do this is to use forums, or social media groups where people have a shared interest. There are existing community groups in different areas on Facebook, for example, and forums online for those looking for short term work. These people might include students, casual workers, or those looking for some short term holiday work.
If you’re advertising in multiple places, it may be a good idea to check that all contact details or links to application forms are consistent so avoid forms being sent to the wrong location, or missed.
Use Recruitment Software
Mass recruitment software is vital for streamlining your recruitment process, as it can reduce the time you spend sorting and categorising applications.
Software like Oleeo can help you track applications from start to finish, build relationships with your applicants, screen, gather and analyse data, and schedule interviews and meetings with ease.
This means you can spend less time on the administrative tasks relating to recruitment, and more time on the tasks that matter for your business.
Use Social Media to Your Advantage
Social media is a hub of activity, designed to communicate at a fast pace through posts, ads, and pictures.
Depending on your business, you could recruit those who have previously worked for your company and had a good experience, or current employees to write testimonials for your company, and share posts on social media to advertise vacancies.
This will allow you to access a much wider audience, and studies show that 70% of people trust reviews and recommendations from strangers. This means that your social media audience is greatly receptive to any personal testimonials from former or current employees.
Use Recruitment Managers to Help You
Recruitment managers are a great resource for spending dedicated time on your recruitment drive. Many recruitment managers will have years of experience in knowing how to find the best qualities in applications, and how to conduct the most thorough and effective interview process.
Additionally, their dedicated and focused time and specialism in the industry means that they will also be dedicated to securing a tight knit and well-functioning team for your business to flourish.
This ensures that you no longer have to split your time between juggling your home life and managing the time consuming nature of mass hiring.
