In its most recent What’s Keeping HR Leaders Up at Night survey conducted in December 2018 and January 2019, Human Resource Executive found that 72 percent of the respondents said they had a moderate or high degree of concern about losing talent within the next 12 months.
With a robust economy, finding workers who fit the bill from both a skills and cultural perspective can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. It just requires the right approach.
At Duffy Group Inc., we employ a proven process called Recruitment Research that matches talented workers with companies who need them at about half the cost of traditional recruiting.
As its name implies, Recruitment Research puts information and fact gathering at the forefront of the equation. The process starts by arming recruiters and hiring managers with information about the company and the open position, and is followed by creation of a sound sourcing strategy and name generation to unearth potential talent.
But the research doesn’t stop there. List in hand, Duffy Group then begins recruitment candidate vetting – a fancy way of referring to how we determine which names float to the top of the interview list. We do this by asking a series of “hurdle questions” to ensure that the individual has the right education and experience, is in the right salary range and whose personality would meld well with others on the team.
