This past February, Expr3ss! welcomed some of Australia’s best-loved businesses into our 7-Day Club. It’s not an exclusive club. Quite the contrary. Anyone can become a member when they reduce time-to-hire to 7 days or less.
Does that goal sound impossible? It’s not. In this article, we share good news from the frontlines of recruiting in Australia and insights that can help you take back control of your own recruitment.
Expr3ss! Solves Too Much of a Good Thing
With the Internet bringing literally millions of new talent to the pool, finding good applicants has become easier. What has become more difficult is speeding up the time-consuming process of identifying the best of these candidates. Time is critical in recruitment. Every day a business is without an employee, it suffers a butterfly effect of repercussions.
Think about a vacancy in an IT department. First, other IT team members have to pick up the slack until a new person is found and trained. This can lead to delays in maintaining hardware and software, which in turn can cause a disruption in essential business communications. Inefficient communications can cause a cascading series of problems that ends with a business potentially losing customers and sales.
Expr3ss! has developed a method and process that allows our clients to
- Get out from under a mountain of applicants – A single click sifts, sorts, and pinpoints applicants with the Can-Do skills that are required.
- Quickly create a short list – Another click winnows applicants further with a proven algorithm that identifies the Will-Do stars.
- Get the right fit for corporate culture – We guide clients through the best ways to engage, liaise, and collaborate to find the applicants who Fit the position, team, and business.
Our clients use creatively integrated mail and SMS to capture the attention of applicants quickly and promote a dialogue. Then, interviews can be conducted by telephone and/or face-to-face, using the integrated applicant self-service calendar.
