Failure to understand who makes up the “recruiting team” This is part of a series on the Top 12 Hiring Mistakes. Click here for main page.
Most hiring professionals designate a “recruiting team”, including such people as the position’s supervisor, managers they may interact with, human resources, and even the leader of the company.
To fix this problem, best practices dictate that all employees the candidate will meet are part of the “recruiting team”. The candidate will talk with the receptionist at the front desk, administrative assistants, and escorts from one location to another.
Each of these individuals should have a “30-second” commercial to provide the candidate with consistent view of the work experience at the organization.
