Do employers need to move quicker when hiring?

The simply, and only answer to this, is YES!

In an ever-challenging, candidate short market, companies that offer a streamlined, efficient, and speedy recruitment process win out every time. Things have changed, companies who do not think they need to adapt their interview process will lose out on the talent they are looking for.

With numerous posts on LinkedIn sharing candidate experiences of multistage recruitment processes, spread out over several weeks, it is no wonder that at the end of that process the employer does not secure the candidate of their choice. Recruiters are exhausted, candidates are exhausted, and the company loses out as their preferred candidate accepts another role with an employer who moved more quickly and more decisively. Surely, they must have known quite soon into the process whether that candidate was a good fit for them and the role?

Extending the recruitment process beyond two stages costs time and money. Highly sought after candidates are often considering several roles and juggling interviews and job offers. If you do not move quickly enough, these candidates will lose interest, time has been wasted and you will find yourselves back to square one with no offer / hire made.

The recruitment process should always be time sensitive and there must always be clear communication between the hiring manager, the recruiter, and the candidate.
