Why Should You Invest In The Recruitment Process?
According to Jack Welch, a former CEO of GE, who sums it up best by stating in his book Winning "…nothing matters more in winning than getting the right people on the field." Jack Welch clearly understands the role a recruiter plays and the impact of their work in the eventual success or failure of a company. Like Jack, we at enetRecruiter firmly believe that no other investment can derive a higher return for a company than the one made in hiring the right people from the start.
From Jim Collins' book Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…and Others Don't, the foremost difference between a good company and a great one is that the great company focuses first on their people "…before vision, before strategy, before tactics, before organizational structure, before technology."
The late CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs once gave his advice to a group of entrepreneurs on how to achieve success, "…you need to be a great talent scout because no matter how smart you are, you still need a very talented team around you." Without talented people, success cannot be achieved. And without a strong recruiting team, companies are unable to acquire talented people.
An example of how one great hire can translate into extraordinary organizational success is the Tony Fadell iPod story. In the late 90s, as Steve Jobs struggled to figure out how to take the company to the next level, one day in 2001, a young high-tech consultant was recruited to work at Apple. "It was a marriage made in high-tech heaven," according to iCon: Steve Jobs, The Greatest Second Act In The History Of Business, a book by Jeffrey S. Young and William L. Simon. Tony Fadell had been working on his revolutionizing idea while he was at General Magic and Philips. Fortunately for Apple, General Magic, Philips, and a few other companies did not take Tony's idea seriously. Steve Jobs saw the potential in Tony's idea and backed it with his company's best resources. The rest is history. Needless to say, Apple received a phenomenal return on their investment in one great hire.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach or shortcut to recruiting for the best talent. There is no one style of music that appeals to all music lovers. People are vastly different and our likes and dislikes change frequently. Likewise, job candidates have very diverse backgrounds, character traits, and thought processes. When presented with information, each job candidate will interpret it in different ways. The ability to effectively communicate with a candidate and then evaluate their skills, particularly "soft skills" requires prudence, intuition, and experience, all of which technology can help but cannot replace. This is precisely why recruiters must play a large part in the hiring process more so now than ever before. Experienced recruiters can read beyond the spoken word, interpret facial expressions, intonations in the voice, and subtle body language. A good recruiter can respond to unclear communication signals by asking more questions, or further elaborate on a topic if it does not seem to receive a desired response.
There is no doubt in our minds that exceptional recruiters, in-house or agency, bring in top candidates. If finding talented people are truly your priority, then there is nothing more important than assembling your own exceptional recruiting team! Feel free to contact us and let us know how we can help.
