Recruitment can be a pain. It’s not only difficult to find the right candidates for the job. Recruiters and HR-people get overwhelmed with applications, questions, follow-up-notifications.
With every job application comes a load of paperwork. On top of that, once recruited, the onboarding of the new team member is often a responsibility of stressed team managers and getting clarity on the process for the new team member, managers, and HR can be easier said than done.
I recently wrote a long piece on the challenges of the HR-department in HR.com about keeping track of everything from recruitment to the onboarding process.
My take on this is that recruitment is such a complicated process with so many people involved — HR, recruitment firms, candidates, managers — that managing this complexity with e-mails and phone calls will make the work into a something of a time-consuming mess.
And if the candidate chosen is not treated in a professional and welcoming manner due to miscommunication between HR and managers the risk is that new employees have a bad first impression of the company. Apart from creating distrust in the company brand and culture, this can also prolong the time for new employees to be at full speed at work. Handling one new employee might not a difficult task but throw multiple hires into the mix and it can be difficult to know what has been done and not taken care of.
