3 Steps to Create a Hiring Process to Identify the Best Candidates

In Hiring Strategy — by Erin Engstrom

Developing an organized hiring process is an essential aspect of successful recruitment. By establishing a thorough hiring process, you’ll ensure that all of your candidates are evaluated using the same criteria, and you’ll be less susceptible to make impulse hiring decisions.

1. Customize Your Stages

After you create a job opening, you have to know how you’re going to evaluate candidates. The resume review is a given, but what comes after that? An assessment test? A work sample? A phone interview? In Trakstar Hire, you can tailor your stages to the hiring process that works best for you.

2. Collaborate With Colleagues

Another thing you can do in Hire is assign stage coordinators and interviewers. Collaboration is another important aspect of the hiring process. Our colleagues help us to check our biases, lighten our load and make us aware of important candidate qualities that we may have previously ignored.

3. Assign Colleagues to Manage Stages

To that end, you can assign different roles to your colleagues in Hire. Stage coordinators shepherd candidates through the stages and make sure that qualified candidates are sent on to the next stage. Interviewers have the authority to make hire/no hire decisions.

The video above takes you into the Trakstar Hire app and shows you how to set up your hiring process by adding stages, and assigning coordinators and interviewers to these stages. Remember, you can change your hiring process and the participating team members at any time, as well as replicate it from one opening to another.

Trakstar Hire is considered the most user friendly hiring software on the market. If you’re ready to take your recruiting and hiring to the next level, request a Trakstar Hire demo today.
