In a research conducted recently by the Forbes Human Resources Council, the most common bottlenecks in the talent recruitment process were identified. One of the biggest hurdles is being unprepared for a certain kind of talent. Even when they do identify, they do not have any process of capturing them due to a lack of urgency being shown. Another common mistake is to put in place hiring managers who by nature are quite critical of others or indecisive in decision making. When candidates repeatedly turn down the job, the morale among recruiters gets hit. A lot of hiring managers are idealists and thus look for the Unicorn star performers rather than be content with the talent on hand. This inadvertently delays hiring decision. Misdirection is often a cause of poor hiring process as it is not clear whether the position for recruitment is a strategic one or merely to fulfill near term objectives. Recruitment processes sometimes take a hit due to too many unqualified aspirants applying at the same time when offers are made. Reference checks in addition are often unnecessarily time consuming. A lot of potential employees get disillusioned by the clear disparity between the job description and its actual duties to be performed. Sometimes, hiring slows down due to too many people getting involved. Sometimes, it is because the paperwork is tremendous especially in large hierarchical structures. The top talent gets warded off by a rigid compensation structure where they see fewer chances for growth. The job descriptions are quite often too generic. Sometimes, recruitment pipelines are actually quite efficient but concerned employees form a perception of bottlenecks existing. This slows down the process when none should.
