Only Data Dinosaurs Promise “One Day” or “On the Spot” Hiring

In the ever quickening world of BPO companies in the Philippines, the latest recruitment slogans promise One Day or On the Spot Hiring. I even saw one today that promised a coaching session on how to pass the interview before the interview. Crazy. Like the last dinosaurs, these big companies are making a futile effort to avoid extinction.

Anyone ever involved in recruitment will tell you, that its hard enough to find good candidates, but trying to find rock stars with a one day, end to end, recruitment process is ludicrous. Not using more data and analytics in their process, will lead them to walk with the dinosaurs.

When it comes to trying to compress the recruitment process cutting edge companies look to technology and data analysis to help them narrow the field and make quicker hires. While dinosaurs just through more manpower at the problem. They ramp up with staffing staff and take shortcuts in skills assessment, candidate fit and potential success to meet the ever increasing demand for talent.

When you see the headlines promising one day hires, you look at the companies and see they are doing things like its still the Jurassic Era. Resume screening in mass, scaled down skills tests and group final interviews. No demographic profiling, no analysis of the candidates distance to work or difficulty of commute, no predictive modeling based on candidate data to show likelihood of employee success. Its like watching a bad sci-fi movie about dinosaurs taking over the planet. It will not end well.

In today’s hyper competitive job market, only the companies who evolve to using more intelligent recruitment methods will prevail. The rest will someday take their place in a museum of failed BPO companies from the early 21st century.

And its not that expensive, not is it really that hard to invest in analytics solutions. The cost of ramping up and hiring more people to do hiring  is always more costly over time then a good business intelligence tool.

Instead of shortening your process to stave off eventual extinction, evolve your business to get with the times. Don’t end up like everyone else offering the promise of expedient hiring to fill seats, that in the end just need to be filled again and again.
