Xtra Effort has noticed candidates are receiving multiple offers and often in a timely fashion. Specifically, two Xtra Effort clients recently lost later stage candidates because the candidates received more timely evaluation processes with other attractive employers (not Xtra Effort clients).
We would suggest we all be aware of this trend.
Timely employer to candidate feedback and an efficient ability to screen candidates is becoming increasingly important (with or without a third party recruiter).
This is a polite way of saying don’t take good candidates for granted, they are going fast. It is expensive to invest your company’s resources in 3/4 of an evaluation cycle and then lose critical talent at the 11th hour.
Be diligent and don’t skips steps, but also keep it tight and be aware of what your best candidates are experiencing with your process and the MUTUAL evaluation cycle.
