Whilst there are numerous technological advances throughout our industry mistakes are made if we ignore the human element which impact on candidates and the company’s reputation.
Assessing a potential employee fit is the not the same as ‘matching skills and experience’ from a CV. For me, understanding your culture is one of the key elements of implementing a recruitment strategy. Matching candidates to client requirements regarding brief, values and culture includes
- Communicating values
- Asking behaviour related questions
- Involving other key personnel
- Experiencing the environment beyond the meeting room
I am proud to say this approach works for us and is the reason why customers come back to us when they are looking to make a hire.
