Some of the organizations worry that hiring fast can lead to wrong decisions and low quality of candidates. However, with the right technology at hand, recruiters can hire quickly and efficiently, without compromising the hiring quality. Speed-to-hire is critical for staffing firms because there is a chance of losing revenue if their top talent is placed elsewhere. Hence, staffing firms need to be committed to speed and reducing time-to-fill.
Right now is a critical time for many sectors in staffing, like healthcare and nurse recruiting, which are experiencing unprecedented demand. Some of the staffing firms are making the most of advanced technology and winning an extra edge in the market, whereas others are just watching the game unfold traditionally.
We are living through a time where the way we work is changing to meet the needs of the moment. It’s hard to look beyond this instant because it often feels like there will be no business to tend to tomorrow if we can’t survive today. Yet, for many businesses, the surest way to a short brand life is to be nearsighted. In being so fixated on solving only for the latest crisis, we are ill-prepared for other changes around the corner. In contrast, companies that take the long view tend to be far more enduring. As leaders like Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, have demonstrated, when you have a clear sense of what you are trying to achieve over a lifetime, you can make faster, better decisions no matter what the current situation. The best short-term strategy is often a long-term one: to build in the present with respect
The goal of all teams is to resolve a problem. That goal is achieved when we learn to think out of the box. When we think about the eulogy at Robert Kennedy’s funeral. He said, “some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not.”
The successful cross-functional team needs to open itself to a diversity of ideas when searching for solutions. Thin out of the box and consider all the potential solutions not from the frame of mind what we have done in the past but what we could do in the future. Think about the first three questions from the Design Thinking model – what is, what if, what wors.
Begin by looking at the wider view of the existing problem. Consider all the aspects of how the problem is manifesting itself. Then consider all the potential alternatives.
