Removing the Fear of Volume Recruitment

Removing The Fear Of Volume Recruitment

There are currently 1.3 million students attending a higher education institution in Australia. The most recent figures from the AAGE stated there were 14,600 law graduates in Australia alone. Imagine being the HR specialist for a mid-size law firm, carrying out the recruitment process for only a handful of graduate positions, yet being flooded with thousands of resumes.

Due diligence would require an enormous amount of time sorting through applications and reducing the talent pool, but the only thing slow graduate processes result in is missed hires. How can you ensure you aren’t wasting resources and time?

At Chandler Macleod People Insights, we project manage volume and graduate recruitment processes and give HR specialists the confidence that they are getting it right. From attraction to assessment and evaluation, and all the way through to selection, Chandler Macleod People Insights (CMPI) can help your organisation at every stage of the recruitment process.

Do you know what the true cost of a poor hire is to an organisation?

Each ineffective hire can cost an employer between 50% and 60% of an employee’s salary. So at the national average salary of $78,8321, each poor hire that doesn’t meet the role or culture requirement can cost your business $39,416 – $47,299 when you consider the cost of recruitment, training and lost productivity. If you are consistently making ineffective hires, the cost to your organisation can be substantial, and damaging in the long-term. Without the proper approach and systems needed to handle high volume recruitment, an HR team may resort to arbitrary selection methods. This can result in unconscious bias and subjectivity, which can result in ineffective, short-term hires which will ultimately hurt your business.

Using CMPI’s innovative Gateway platform, we induct applicants in a cost-effective manner using the very best psychometric assessments. Our best-practice assessment centres can empower any organisation to recruit the right people and develop them in a way that increases productivity and organisational performance.
