Recruiters can liken themselves to a coach in a football team. What?
Yes, you heard it right!
Imagine that you are the coach of a football team. Your team is playing an important game and suddenly one of your players gets injured. In no time you replace the injured player with a player from your dugout. Why? Because you can’t afford to allow your team to play without one player even for a short period of time as it would have an impact on the outcome of the match. And, how were you able to do that? Because you had access to a set of players already lined up on the bench as substitutes.
The same holds true for recruiting as well. Irrespective of whether you are a corporate recruiter or third-party recruiter, you got to always have access to a set of targeted candidates, like the football coach, to quickly place them as and when the need arises. This can do a world of good, especially when your company or your client company are working on mission-critical projects. To accomplish this, you got to build a targeted talent pipeline.
Building talent pipeline helps minimize business disruption, reduces the time to hire & cost per hire, increases the interview success rates and always finds the best talent. But despite all these benefits, a majority of the employers don’t opt to build a talent pipeline for the following reasons:
- Lack of time.
Yes, these are valid reasons. You got to spend a lot of time and resources to build a targeted talent pipeline. As recruiters are often busy with a lot of other tasks, building a talent pipeline is definitely a challenge. This is where a recruiting software such as ResumeGrabber JobSuite can be handy.
