Good hiring practices are vital to the success of any business. If you’re recycling job descriptions, especially ones that may be out of date,you run the risk of attracting the wrong talent for your business needs. Here, strong collaboration between hiring managers, recruiters, HR reps and department heads is essential.
“If the HR team understands what the team is trying to accomplish in filling the role, and the hiring manager can clearly articulate the business strategy, both teams can work together toward the goal. Ideally, HR partners are meeting regularly with the business on many talent topics and can perceive a hiring need before it becomes urgent,” says Julie Barker, senor director of global talent at Appirio.
