Perfect Your Hiring Process: How to Win Great Candidates and Save Everyone’s Time


Presenter: J.D. Conway, BambooHR

Original program date: July 2017 (program no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

Imagine a perfect date. It starts with interest, maybe even some excitement. Add to that a clear plan, comfortable conversation, and, of course, delicious food. Hopefully by the end, both parties decide they would like to continue the relationship. If only it were always that simple.

This program won't provide you with you dating advice (although, if you find any of this useful for your dating life, you’re welcome). But the formula for a perfect date isn’t a far cry from what it takes to optimize your hiring process. After all, hiring a new member of your team is a lot like dating. You need to earn the interest of the candidates who interest you, then show them the appeal of your organization, all while determining if they are the right fit for your team. If you take too long, you risk losing out on the best and brightest candidates. If you don’t take enough time, you risk making the wrong hire and discovering it too late. What’s an HR professional to do?

J.D. Conway of BambooHR shows you how to optimize the hiring process, so you land in the sweet spot between time-to-hire and quality-of-hire. You will learn how to streamline screening by creating a better job description, ensure a positive candidate experience throughout the interview step, and, ultimately, how to take charge of the hiring process and get your organization’s stakeholders on board. (Spoiler alert: It's ROI.)
