The world has changed and recruitment has changed along with it.
Just think about the modern talent, the required skills and ways of reaching out that talent. It's a brand new world requiring a new approach! Nevertheless, many companies and even countries continue to stick to the traditional recruitment.
We talked to Arjun Gharti Chhetri, a Technical Recruitment Officer, to see which aspects he thinks are important to make a real change in recruitment in general and in Nepal, his home country, in particular.
Here are the 4 key aspects Arjun thinks will make recruitment great again:
- Diversity and Inclusion: Many companies are placing a greater emphasis on diversity and inclusion in their hiring practices. As such, recruiters need to be more intentional about sourcing and recruiting candidates from underrepresented groups. This includes implementing blind resume screening, removing unconscious bias in the hiring process, and actively seeking out diverse talent pools.
- Automation and AI: The use of automation and AI in recruiting has the potential to make the recruitment process more efficient and effective. However, it is important to ensure that these technologies are used ethically and do not perpetuate bias or discrimination in the hiring process.
- Skills Assessment: The traditional resume-based hiring process is being challenged by a skills-based approach. Recruiters need to be able to accurately assess candidates' skills and abilities, as well as their fit within the company culture. This may involve using skills assessments, behavioral interviewing techniques, or other tools to better evaluate candidates.
- Employer Branding: Employer branding is becoming a critical component of the recruitment process. Recruiters need to be able to effectively communicate the company's values, culture, and benefits to candidates in order to attract top talent. This includes developing a strong employer brand strategy and leveraging social media and other digital channels to reach potential candidates.
To conclude, recruitment without modern solutions is totally useless. You either upgrade your hiring processes or get forced out of the market naturally and really fast.
