As 2022 begins, employers should dedicate time to ensuring their hiring process is up-to-date and effective. CredentialCheck, an industry leader in employee background screening, recommends the top things to consider for modernizing hiring in the new year.
Businesses are constantly evolving, and the COVID-19 pandemic has also catalyzed many recent changes. These shifts also call for modifications in how hiring managers find and recruit talented people in their industry. CredentialCheck offers these three tips for employers looking to modernize their hiring process in 2022: refine brand identity, become more proactive, and perfect remote recruitment including a background check.
Research indicates that many modern job seekers care just as much about who they work for as they do about what work they will do. Recruiters and hiring managers should refine their brand identity to create a welcoming image that entices potential employees. What are the company’s values, mission, and vision? What is the daily work culture like? Any good recruiter should be prepared to answer these questions and more in a compelling but accurate manner to attract candidates that fit the brand.
Next, recruiters should be prepared to be more proactive in 2022. Thanks to modern recruitment tech, digital channels, and automation, it is easier than ever to create an aggressive talent sourcing process. Employers can stay ahead of the competition by leveraging AI-driven solutions and implementing effective CRM strategies.
Finally, remotely working has become more common than ever before due to the COVID-19. Any company hiring for remote positions must also perfect their remote recruitment process, including everything from initial outreach and interviews to pre-employment background checks and onboarding paperwork. Leveraging the right technology and screening partners will make each step simple and seamless for recruiters and candidates.
