Poor Recruitment Process Kills


Recruiting the right chap has never been that easy and it is getting more difficult these days due of technology and social networking advancement. Most of top performers are passive on job search, our recruitment process has to be capable of enticing them for the opportunity. Companies following poor recruitment process kill the brand image of their own irreparably.  One wrong hire and company loose in big way.

Let see the view through hypothetical example, A Sales Manager resign from the post and leaves the organisation. Sales Head immediately look forward for replacement of Sales Manager, and HR person will start looking for the replacement of the post on immediate basis. HR starts looking for Recruitment firm and hires them for the Job. The Recruitment firm quickly start looking for resumes in their database and forward to client. Urging that the hard to fill position advantage and getting elastic on package. To search some more, firm will start hunting the candidates from their trusted database account and some numbers are generated from the database to pass on to client.  View from Sales Head Point, Every other day without a having Manager in place the less potential sales, to cover up sales part of manager, not much focus is given to close the position is still vacant.  Secondly pressure his mountain high, as sales very on slightly on lower end, and slowly steadily start dipping and to ground and high chances of missing goals. The Sales Head make use of the best decision and agrees to meet two applicants. After the long process the company will zero down on one and close the position. As position was difficult to close many points are over looked in hiring the candidates. Meanwhile candidate resign from current Job and join the company after 60 days to 3months. The first two months of new employee spent in understanding company, their culture, their work process and pressure start amounting, sales figures haven’t recovered from bottom line and the performance of new joinee is not seems as per expectations. Now new high amount of pressure on new recruit, and he is unable to achieve the targets and finally doors are shown to new recruit for bad performance.

With such type of poor recruitment process an organisation would be getting in all way round. Firstly incurring heavy loss due to lower sales, paying recruitment fee to firm for new hiring, With sky high pressure new hire would not be able to perform and fired from job due to bad performance after paying for 6 -8 months and finally company loosing potential business to competitors and brand equity from Market.
