It’s the Busy Season…Are You Well Positioned for Future Personnel Needs?
It’s busy season in the Title World! Even with many areas facing limited housing inventory, people are still out buying and selling homes, and closings are happening at a rapid rate. Consequently, it’s easy to get caught up in your day to day business this time of year, and possibly place future personnel needs on the back burner. Unfortunately, this practice has the potential to be costly down the road.
According to TopResume.com, the three best times of year to find a new opportunity from a candidate’s perspective are right after New Year’s, the spring months, and early autumn. As you are well aware, the spring seasonal hiring wave is currently in full force, and we will soon move into the summer recruiting “lull”. However, this does not mean that a business should neglect building a candidate pipeline over the summer months.
Engaging qualified candidates during the summer months may be beneficial, as it can position your organization to make hiring decisions swiftly and get new team members up to speed while the competition is still out there looking for talent during seasonal moments of panic! In general, candidates will soon be looking ahead to the fall hiring season and reaching them early to begin building a relationship could prove to be beneficial in encouraging them to join your team.
In summary, building a recruiting strategy, especially while you are caught up in the busy season, can be daunting and time consuming. This is one of the areas where a specialized recruiting team like Anderson|Biro can help. We will work to understand the type of candidate and personality that you would like to identify and assist in building your talent pipeline.
