Developing a clear strategy in recruitment has never been more important than it is today, with businesses needing to ensure they are preparing not just to meet their existing workforce needs, but also to prepare themselves for the needs of tomorrow.
At Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), we've seen a rise in the number of our clients seeking a more comprehensive and flexible way to onboard new hires and to access the limited pool of talent that is available in many industries. Developing access to swift and efficient hiring therefore holds a range of benefits for all businesses, and this is where the emergence of talent pools can make the difference.
Opening up talent pools to meet business needs
Direct sourcing of candidates and the proliferation of freelance management systems has meant many businesses are becoming limited in the number of candidates they have available for new positions.
However, from faster time-to-fill roles through to associated cost savings from a more streamlined recruitment process, talent pools are helping organizations to overcome a range of disruptors to their current recruitment programs.
The benefits of talent pools are far-reaching and include:
- Ability to aggregate all past hires and ensure any successful contingent labor can easily be recruited again for future roles
- Access to alumni networks for a wider pool of talent to draw upon
- Retaining the details of silver medalists (candidates who reached the final phase of the interview process but were not offered a previous position)
- Ability to draw on a group of people who have already demonstrated a clear interest in your employer brand/business
We think you'll agree that the use of new products and services aligned to a talent pool approach to recruiting new hires can therefore open up a world of possibilities for businesses they might otherwise have missed.
