If you work in HR, or as part of an in-house recruitment team, you probably know by now how frustrating it can be to find the right talent for your organisation. So imagine finally hiring the perfect candidate only for them to leave within a few weeks of starting - it can be soul destroying, especially when you add up the wasted recruitment time, interview hours, and training costs; not to mention the costs of having to re-hire for the same position.
What are the advantages of an automated recruitment process?
Here’s the scenario; you are part of a busy HR team for a growing company and, to support this growth, your team has been asked to find talented people who can add value to the organisation.
After spending time writing and submitting a job advert to multiple job boards, you start to receive hundreds of applications into your inbox. At first, each application is viewed to check skills and experiences, a follow-up email thanking them for applying is also sent. Unfortunately, this takes a lot of time, time which you don’t really have. The process starts to slip; CV’s are only skim-read and ‘thank-you for applying’ emails become non-existent.
What is the alternative to Recruitment Agencies?
In-House Recruiters VS Agencies
As a business experiences growth, both in terms of revenue and its customer base, the necessity to hire more staff to support that growth invariably increases.
Whilst company growth is an exciting time for any business owner, attracting and hiring the right people who add value, and who can assist with the growth of the company, can be a challenge to an already busy HR or hiring team.
Modern technology is constantly changing the way we go about our day, and with this new technology, processes that once took forever are now being completed in minutes.
With so many advancements in technology, it’s a surprise that companies continue to use outdated hiring practices, especially when much of their competition is moving towards the more modern, time-saving alternatives.
Every day, companies are losing money from their bottom line without knowing what the real problem is. What if I told you that your organisation could be losing money due to a lack of productivity, as a direct result of demotivated employees?
According to research by Gallup, the proportion of workers who are not engaged with their work is a whopping 68%, but what is even more concerning is those who are actively involved and engaged with their work is a meagre 11%.
Figures from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) have recently shown that there has been consecutive growth in the fund service for Guernsey. This growth was largely due to an increase in Guernsey-domiciled closed-ended funds of £13.7 billion over the year.
This consistent growth highlights how appealing Guernsey has become to the finance and funding sectors.
Guernsey is an international finance centre utilised by the UK as a gateway for investing into, and raising capital from, the rest of the world.
This is not surprising; what with a better-than-average wage compared to the UK, alongside more preferential tax rates; Guernsey is becoming increasingly attractive to businesses and professionals from the banking and finance sectors.
A growing pot of talented professionals relocating to the island can only be a good thing, right?
As a recap, and for those that didn’t read our last GDPR blog, the General Data Protection Regulation comes into place on the 25th May 2018. The new rules have allowed for an increased level of legal certainty for data that travels within the EU. This forces organisation’s to be more transparent about the way they are using consumer data.
The new regulations have been heavily marketed and a number of horror stories have started to surface. We know that the legislation can sound scary, especially with the fines for non-compliance, but this is an essential regulation that will help to prevent our own personal data from being stolen, misused or sent to third parties without our prior consent – so it’s a good thing!
GDPR IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
