Why you need an interview process that promotes collaboration...

Posted by James Patrick Kahler on January 15, 2016

You can’t be everywhere at once. The demands of modern life - work, family, commuting, hitting the gym occasionally, the list goes on and on - make it clear that  it’s impossible to be everywhere, all the time. You cannot keep an eye on everything that’s going on—all at once. While this old saying is anecdotally and scientifically accurate, it doesn’t apply to everything.

For example, let’s say you’re in charge of hiring new employees across multiple locations. Just because you’re hiring several employees at different business locations doesn’t mean you can’t have a say on all of the candidates, all at once. It also doesn’t mean you have to be alone in this process. The ability to collaborate with your team during the  hiring process, across all locations, hiring managers, and roles is possible. In fact it’s extremely important to work as a team to ensure you’re hiring great employees.

The Benefits of Fostering Collaboration Across Hiring Managers

For many businesses, it’s essential for every decision maker to have his or her say in the hiring process. Whether hiring is an effort across team members, you want to monitor the progress of job searches, or simply want the peace of mind knowing that your team is following best practice hiring processes, having a hiring framework that allows you to collaborate with others allows you to confidently select, unanimously, the most suitable candidate for the job.

Here are some of the crucial benefits from having a centralized hiring system that nurtures collaboration between managers:

  • Enable hiring managers to track the progress of evaluating candidates
  • Apply customizable interview questions and track responses
  • Ability to rate applicants and add notes pertaining to respective candidates
  • Ability to review candidates’ credentials quickly and identity those who need additional follow-up
  • Capability to track, communicate  and hire with a few clicks of a bottom

You can’t be everywhere at once in the physical sense, but that doesn’t matter when it comes to the interview process and hiring. Consider using a hiring framework that allows you to foster collaboration with your managers and ultimately, build a better team for your business.
