Recruiting In a Tough Labor Market: 4 Advantages to Using Hiring Teams

Most people looking for jobs are using referrals from friends or online tools such as Glass Door or Indeed. While some companies hire too quickly, using a collaborative hiring model will take more time. Using collaborative hiring may give the candidate a realistic idea of what the job is really like since more people involved in the hiring process will feel obligated to help the candidate succeed, and will provide more of a network to the employee when they start the job.

  • 3Hiring teams are a viable solution, although they do lengthen the process, creating the need for more interviews.
