High volume recruiting or mass recruiting is the process of hiring a large number of individuals (usually more than 10) to start within a short time frame. This would correspond with the business’s need to grow rapidly and usually in Jamaica, the industries that generally do mass recruiting are the BPO and the hotel industry. Mass recruiting, however, is not limited to those industries as based on seasonal need other industries also tend to ramp-up as well.
This type of recruitment is generally time and people consuming. Typically based on the total number of persons that you want to hire in a short time is not able to manage solely by your current HR team. Here are three things to consider when you are recruiting a large volume of candidates.
- Your Employer Brand – Your employer brand is an important element in the candidate recruiting. A strong employer brand will attract more candidates to job posts. Promoting your company culture can go a far way in gaining interest once positions are advertised.
- Your ideal candidates – A crucial step in the hiring process. It is important that you create a job profile that will clearly define what is expected of potential candidates and identifying what knowledge, skills and abilities are needed to fulfil this role. If possible, observe current employees in the position to identify what is needed to be effective in the role.
- Your Talent Pool – Based on the total number of persons needed to fill the role, you might not be able to fill those vacant positions only with those that applied. It is therefore needed to take advantage of existing talent pools to find identify additional persons. Staffing companies have an extensive candidate list, so using such a firm can provide you more potential candidates to fill the roles. With their access in the industry, they are better able to source and identify candidates that best fit your job profile.
