Just In Time Recruiting
Just in Time Recruiting or Just in Time Staffing is a human resources
management philosophy that strives to eliminate sources of employment imbalances
by presenting the right candidate for the right job at the right time.
Candidates Available When Needed
The underlying theory is that labor supply can be managed like any other
production ingredient. And that it is possible to have candidates
available when you need them.
Keys to Successful Recruiting
- Reduce lead times for candidate interviews. Marry human resources
and/or your third-party recruiting partners with hiring managers.
Close cohesion between these stakeholders reduces the time to hire.
- Continuously market your company and open positions so that candidates are
familiar with your operation. Job boards and job posting services such
as PostOnce are the second most
effective way to make new hires. And should be a part of every
companies recruiting process.
- Create and/or expand an employee referral program for new hires.
Making a hire from who you know or who your employees know is one of the
fastest ways to get a new employee working. While this option yields
quality hires, a growing company will quickly extinguish its own internal
networks and will need to advertise open positions.
- Maintain contact and on good terms with former employees or unsuccessful
hires. Business conditions change constantly and a former employee or
an unsuccessful hire may be tomorrow's new employee.
- Keep an up to date resume database. If you do not want to maintain
this in-house, subscribe to a resume service with fresh resumes.
Recruiting difficulty is a function of how old of a resumes pool you are
working from. Today, more than ever it is quite easy to secure a fresh
pool of qualified candidates who are ready to work.
- Promote from within. It is easier to fill lower level
positions than those requiring more experience. Identifying capable
employees, putting them on the growth path and then promoting them
intelligently is an excellent path to organizational growth. Most
employees invite added job responsibilities and financial rewards associated
with promotion. So if you as manager offer enough training
opportunities, promoted employee can transition into the new role
