Does Your Company Use Hiring Checklists?

One of the best ways to ensure that the hiring process is streamlined is to have a system in place whereby every applicant search is handled in the same manner.  Not only does this help weed out weak candidates, but it also allows you to have more control over what’s being said and done in terms of the hunt for new employees.

Four of the biggest advantages to having hiring checklists that explain the hiring process at your company include:

  • All phases of the hiring process are managed without hassles.  When something’s written down, it’s easy to follow.  And if someone doesn’t follow the system, it’s evident very early in the process and can be remedied.
  • Discrimination is avoided.  If all job applicants are being treated in an equal manner, there is less likelihood that a discrimination charge will stick.
  • Information can be protected.  If you have a system, you can put into place password protected documents to make certain that data is kept under wraps.
  • All potential hire information can be kept in a single file.  With a system in place, all the data can be located in one spot, making future references to that potential hire a breeze to check out.

Remember that having a hiring process in place that uses specific checklists is one of the best ways to ensure that every hiring decision is the best one.
