The Art & Science Of Recruitment Agency

Recruitment has widely been described as an art. The art of searching and finding the right talent candidates before interviewing them and screening the fitment, not only for the requirement but also a culture of the Company. The art lies in the fact that the recruitment consultant knows in his/her gut that a person is a good fit for the company or not. However, technology is taking all over the world the work and life of the recruitment are in the forefront of going through a makeover with the advent of AI, Machine Learning, Analytics, big data, etc.

While there is a lot of science involved in the process of the recruitment, and technology only emphasizes that side of recruitment, recruitment is a high touch portfolio which involves coaxing, negotiating, nurturing in order to match the right talent candidates with the right Organization.

To have a universal approach to recruitment, the best recruitment agencies in India have always tried to find the right balance of science and art in recruitment.

What is the ‘art’ factor in Recruitment?

Well, recruitment is nothing but building people according to the requirement! And endurance is the innate trait that one needs along with the external supporting aids to back up the gut feeling and human judgment, the other basic traits of a successful recruitment consultant.

Innovation and creativity in recruitment lie in the way a recruitment consultant determines who will be a motivating leader or an aspiring team member. There is no scientific formula to that! Candidates are humans and their response varies with situations and at times are quite unstable, which can be only gauged humanly.

Recruitment agencies in India have enveloped technology in order to automate a certain set of assignments that will save a lot of time of the recruitment consultants while they can focus more on the ones where human judgment is required.

In the face of automation and Artificial Intelligence, any placement company with a strong team of skilled recruitment consultants who follow their gut instinct, and determine with modernization and creativity will still stand out against those who entirely bank on technology!

While the science of Recruitment can be outsourced to the Technological augmentation, the art of Recruitment will continue to remain in Human hands, the artistic Recruitment consultants.

Planing :

The most important thing what we do is planning, that involves in the hiring decision agree to the hiring process, steps, and communication channels to be used. Our planning includes the timeline, recruitment plan, criteria for initial candidate screening, selection committee, interview questions, and instructions for taking notes.

Creating Job description based on the position :

We recognize the job requirements form the basis for the job description. Other necessary information includes necessary functions to be performed in the role and the advantages of working for the company (i.e., workplace environment, compensation and benefits, perks, etc.).

Promoting the job opening through Social media :

The job listing should be advertised internally through social media like facebook, twitter, Linkedin & Instagram so that current employees can apply and make referrals. Other avenues for promotion are the company’s website, online job boards, job seekers groups, and industry publications.

Recruiting :

Beyond passive recruitment via job posts, the hiring staff should follow out the qualified candidates via LinkedIn, social media, and industry events. This will ensure that some applications from possible candidates who are not actively searching for new jobs but who may be perfect for the role are received.

Application screening :

As job applications arrive by social media platforms or email or via an applicant tracking system (ATS), the hiring staff reviews résumés/CVs and cover letters based on the criteria established in the planning step. The Unqualified candidates’ applications are withdrawn from the applicant pool. The Qualified candidates are informed of the next steps beginning with a screening interview.

Screening interview :

Initial interviews with applicants through phone calls with HR representatives. These interviews complete if applicants have the qualifications needed to do the job and serve to further narrow the pool of candidates. HR may also explain the interviewing process during this step by step.

Interviews :

Depending upon the team size of the selection committee, several interviews are scheduled for each candidate.

  • Early interviews are typical with one person, face to face interviews with applicants and the hiring manager and focus on applicants’ based on experience, skills, work history, and availability.
  • Additional meetings are conducted with management, staff, executives, and other members of the organization can be face to face or panel interviews, formal or relaxed, on-site, off-site, or online (Skype, Google Hangouts). These interviews are more in-depth; in some organizations, each interviewer focuses on a specific subject or aspect of the job being filled to avoid overlap between interviews and to discover more about the applicants.
  • The final round of interviews might be conducted by the company’s senior leadership or an interviewer from a previous round of interviews. These latter-stage interviews are generally extended to a very small pool of top candidates.

Applicant talent assessment :

Before, during, or after interviews, hiring staffoften assign applicants one or more standardized tests to assess personality type, talent also called pre-employment tests, physical suitability for the job position, cognition (reasoning, memory, perceptual speed and accuracy, math, and reading comprehension), and/or emotional intelligence. Some organizations also require applicants to take tests or complete assignments to demonstrate professional skills applicable to the open job position based on the job requirement.

Background verification :

One of the final steps forwarded in making a job offer is conducting background checks to review the candidates’ criminal record, to verify the history of the candidate and eligibility, and to run credit checks and Some big organizations also check social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, etc. to make sure the potential employees are likely to represent the company in aprofessional way. Drug the testing may also be warranted depends upon the nature of the job.

Decision Making :

The hiring staff confers and evaluates the applications of candidates based on the interviews, job experience, skills and talent assessments, and all other related information of the candidate (recommendations, e.g.). The top choice should be identified and agreed on. A backup candidate selection & hiring process should be made, as well. If no candidates meet the hiring criteria, the hiring process should start over.

Reference checks :

The candidate has been selected for the position once, his or her professional references should be contacted. Reference checks can verify candidates’ job performance and also the employment details his/her performance, strengths, and weaknesses. The important question to ask references is “Would you rehire this person?”

Offering a Job :

Offering the job details including an offer letter stating the position’s salary, start date, and other terms and conditions of employment that are based on the agreement between the company and the candidate. It should be clear that the candidate understands the terms of the offer. The candidate may agree and sign, initiate negotiations (typically focusing on salary), or turn down the offer

Hiring :

Once the candidate accepts the job offer LETTER, he or she is hired. This kicks off a phase of filling out and filing paperwork related to employment including eligibility to work forms, tax withholding forms, and company-specific forms.

On-boarding :

A comprehensive step in the onboarding process is a crucial step in the hiring process. This should involve making the new employee feel welcome even before he or she officially joins the organization. Preparing his or her workspace, providing necessary access credentials for work applications and networks, and outlining an orientation and training schedule can significantly speed up the new things to the hired candidate.

Bloom consulting services is a leader in innovative workforce solutions has been addressing the talent needs of their partner organizations by assisting them with temporary staffing, permanent staffing, leadership search, Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). Bloom is a pioneer as far as staffing solutions worldwide. It is considered as it has clients spanning multiple geographies, multiple businesses (IT Services, IT Products, Manufacturing, etc.) and provides expert staffing services to Fortune 500 companies, as well as a start-up. It is not important for finding the candidate-facing placement agency, but having been in the business of ‘staffing’ for many years, the staffing agency experts have a deep-level of understanding about the ‘jobs & skills’ that are in demand according to their requirements. As per their research, they are looking for the candidates that they have the right mix of skills & attitude. Simply having a good academic background does not help, a job candidate should have the extinguish for the knowledge.

As per a report by the group of a staffing agency, 56% of the employees say that they can’t find the skills they need. This is because the job market is very uncomfortable and skills that were in demand a couple of years back have not lost relevance. As a job candidate, you need to constantly up-skill yourself since ‘up-skilling’ is the only way that helps to stay ‘relevant’ in the job industry. Now-a-days Digital Technologies are playing a major role in creating new jobs that never existed, a couple of years from now. It is preferable that job candidates utilize the surplus of free material relevant to their ‘domain & expertise’ on the internet so that they are up-to-date with the latest trends in their domain. When it comes to job search, candidates should utilize the power of ‘online business networks’ since they can connect with other professionals having similar expertise. There are many employees in an organization that have leadership skills but are yet to take the lead. This is where a Staffing agency can bring the transformational change in your organization by identifying next-generation leaders from within the organization and imparting management training programs.

In a nutshell, there is a talent shortage in every industry and organizations try to fill the talent-gap either by grooming internal employees to make them future-ready or hire external talent when they are unable to meet the talent demand from within the organization. As a job seeker, it is advisable to stay ‘relevant’ and employ the right mix of ‘online & offline’ when you plan to make the next ‘big move’!

  ADVANTAGES OF STAFFING AGENCY

                               ADVANTAGES OF STAFFING AGENCY

Staffing agencies contribute to the industry by conducting recruitment drives and staffing potential candidates for organizations, which do not have time, money and the related resources for getting the job done. By stating the aims and needs of the company, through such agencies, staffing agencies, Temporary Staffing, Contract Staffing will recruit the staff based on that criteria. Some staffing agencies provide temporary workers and some would provide permanent employees based on the quota and the demand of the organization.

What is a Recruitment or Staffing Agency?

Recruitment agencies are private agencies that provide candidates for many Multi National Companies like NTT DATA, Dell, Delloite, IBM, HCL etc and also provide job offers and chances for potential employees and candidates. Based on the job description and criteria set by the company, they select various types of candidates through different fields such as advertisements, job sites, through their websites, job fairs and also through social media. When a recruiter finds the candidate profile they go through various processes such as screening tests, verifications etc. If the candidate is suitable for that job profile and meets the company requirement and description, the recruiter sets up an interview with the candidate to discuss the skills and career choices. This information is then passed through the final company where they will decide if the selected candidate has enough skills and ability for the job. After the interview with the recruiter is successful, the recruiter approves the candidate and the candidate is then set up for an interview with the client. The client then goes through the information and points which were sent by the recruiter along with the performance comments. The client conducts the interview with the candidate and if the potential candidate has done the interview very well, he/she would secure the job position, and they might get the job.

Why Recruitment and Staffing Agencies?

We feel happy when some companies are hiring through such agencies for recruitment. There are so many factors that add to this factor. The main reason for recruitment agencies is to appoint and recruit the employees based on the employment type and since it is their job to do so, they will recruit employees more efficiently. Moreover, they know how to recruit the employees based on the economic and financial market relating to the organization. Furthermore, recruiting agencies are agencies that work parallel to the main organization and try to create a workforce for the main company. In this way, the company can save a lot of income on recruitment expenses, transportation and also keeping track of their employees.  They also maintain a separate record only for the purpose and they will save time and money for the documentation.

Advantages of Working with a Staffing Firm:

  • Save Time
  • Expertise
  • Cost
  • Network
  • Providing the required guidance and Skills
  • No Need of advertisement of Company
  • Less Footwork

Save Time : 

Staffing firms have a wide access to help in getting searching & get into jobs for all the candidates that are not found through a simple job search. Hence, there is a wide variety of choices for the candidate to get a job through Consultancy. As a point of view from the candidate, most of the work is done by a recruitment agency and hence not much work is involved for the candidate. Most of the recruiters are knowledgeable about the different trends and changes present in the industry and they try to recruit people according to the current state of the industry. They take only the required amount of employees for the company. Especially if the market is not stable and promising for new employees. Instead of the company, spending hours and hours every day recruiting new people, most of the paperwork and the hard work is done by the recruitment agency.

Expertise : 

Staffing agencies always have a high level of expertise that exceeds a way more than the human resource department of most of the MNC companies. Unlike, the human resource department where they won’t contact one type of people, they contact the different groups of people, the recruiting agency tends to meet with people of various industries and they get a chance to learn about the leading technology, how technology is shifting and how the trends are in the market. Also, recruiting agencies are more suitable for working long tedious hours for employing candidates rather than the HR of a company. They also provide expert recruiters and employment specialists at a low cost than most of the third party companies.

Network :

Staffing agencies have a large network of available workers than the HR department for most companies. Normally, when a company wants workers to work for them, the first thing that they do is advertise, followed by their interview and screening processes and also process the required documentation so as to hire them. Recruiting agencies, on the other hand, have a well-spread network, where they already are in contact with workers whom they identify as the dependent, versatile and fit for the job. So, when employing a recruitment agency, the required amount of manpower that is required for a company can be easily filled within a matter of hours or days, unlike the direct recruitment process, where the company has to wait for months just to get the required number of employees.

Cost : 

Using staffing agencies can be considered advantageous for most companies, since they do not have to spend extra money on employee recruitment and also for funding various processes like pre-employment testing, background testing and also drug screening. They also provide extra cost savings by creating payroll databases and also added administration benefits

Providing the required guidance and Skills : 

Recruitment agencies have well-seasoned and also experienced recruiters. They know the recent trends and changes of the market and they also know how to select the required employee from a whole group of different people, based on the criteria set by the company. Recruitment provides guidelines and tips on how to prepare the CV and also, how to do well in the interview and also, they give training in how to attend the interview with confidence and related training and guidance
