10 Steps to Get Managers More Involved in Recruiting brought to you by:
Some managers love to get involved in the recruiting process Hiring talented people is THE BEST THING EVER!!!! Mr. Manager Wahoo!
Others… not so much I’m too busy to help you find and hire an awesome person for my team. Oh dear.
Getting managers involved in the hiring process is important Who you risk hiring without the manager RabbleRabbleRabbleRabble Who the manager can help you hire pow! pow! pow! pow! Mindless squares Super ninjas
So how can you help managers get more involved in recruiting? I feel a list coming on.
Step 1: When a vacancy is created meet with the manager to review the job description. In addition to being skilled ninjas, candidates also need to be outgoing and creative when presenting to groups. Mr. Manager Got it.
Step 2: Discuss how effective collaboration can ensure the best people are hired and how that can help make the manager’s life AWESOME. If we work together I’m pretty sure we can hire someone like this pow! Mr. Manager I love it! How can I help?
Step 3: Work together to define HR/Recruiting’s responsibilities as well as the managers’ responsibilities. Why don’t I tackle X, Y, and Z? Mr. Manager Perfect! We’ll handle A, B, C, D, E, and F.
Step 4: Discuss key recruiting metrics and how each party can contribute. This graph shows how we were able to reduce time to hire and improve quality of hire when we worked with some of the other managers. Let’s see if we can do even better! Mr. Manager
Step 5: Ask the manager to have his/her team try to provide you with a specific number of referrals. Employee referrals tend to make great hires. Can you have your team submit at least 6 referrals to us in Hello Talent? First of all: Definitely! Secondly, Hello Talent is probably the most amazing thing of all time! Mr. Manager
Step 5: Send weekly updates to the manager with your recruiting/sourcing status. Hey Mr. Manager, we’ve found seven different candidates so far, and all their profiles are in Hello Talent along with their recruiting status. Let us know what you think! Those guys are so on top of things! Mr. Manager
Step 6: Screen candidates before passing them on to the manager. Avoid sending them people like this. Oh look, ice cream! Instead, try sending them people who are so cool its almost like they can fly.
Step 7: When submitting candidate profiles to the manager be sure to include short profile summaries and timelines. Dear Mr. Manager, I’ve flagged three great candidates in Hello Talent I think we should interview. Could you look at these profile summaries and get back to me by Friday so that I can schedule interviews?
Step 8: Be sure to ask the manager to rate the quality of each candidate you’ve submitted. As requested, I’ve rated all the candidates you’ve posted in Hello Talent. Hopefully that will help you to better see what I’m looking for. Mr. Manager I think we should rate these amazing stock photo hamburgers as well!
Step 9: Ensure that candidates as well as the manager know what to expect with interviews. We love your ninja moves, but its probably best if you don’t chop the table in half during the interview.
Step 10: After a candidate has been hired sit with the manager to briefly review the process and look for improvements. That went really well guys. Here are a few things I’d like to work on next time to make things easier for you.
