Let's shine a light on the frustrations experienced during the hiring process and explore disruptive ideas to foster seamless collaboration between hiring managers and recruiting departments.

Studies reveal that 48.5% of hiring managers feel a lack of timely communication from recruiting teams, leading to prolonged hiring cycles and missed opportunities. Additionally, 55% express dissatisfaction with the candidate pool's quality, impacting their ability to make the right choices.

Disruptive Ideas to Bridge the Gap

Take the kick-off meeting seriously:

Most hiring managers try to rush through the kick-off call to discuss a new role. Recruiters must demand at least a 45 minute meeting to go through the details of the role, set the candidate submission and interview process, create the candidate persona. They should also schedule a weekly meeting to disuss updates and candidates in the pipleine. This will enusre the recruiters and HM are on the same page, and that communication is flowing. If the hiring manager does not have the time to meet for 45 minutes to discuss a role they are in need of, then they must not really need the role filled, and it should be prioritized as such.

Data-Driven Insights:
