During peak hiring season, give your candidates the quick onboarding they want and your customers the service they deserve with a better background check experience.
When the peak season arrives it’s easy to get lost in the chaos. Every year companies scramble to manage the influx of talent needed to fuel the surge of home deliveries, online shopping, and retail madness.
Successfully plan for hiring spikes with these four tips.
Develop a well-established hiring strategy
Whether you’re managing a hiring spike or bulk hiring for the upcoming busy season, a proactive approach can alleviate stress, help establish best hiring practices and improve the candidate experience.
Planning for the peak hiring season starts with a well-established hiring strategy consisting of a diverse talent pipeline, a streamlined onboarding process with tightly integrated solutions, automated workflows, and scalable technology. Getting ahead of the curve allows you to scale your workforce as needed and reduce your time-to-hire at a crucial time of year.
Utilize a staffing firm
Hiring hundreds of seasonal warehouse workers or bringing on full-time drivers? Scaling your workforce requires the capacity and flexibility that most companies can’t accomplish alone.
Enlisting the help of a staffing firm can aid in sourcing top candidates and developing a strong talent pipeline. Staffing firms can source candidates from a vast talent pool, including alternative populations like the neurodiverse, stay-at-home parents, or those with transferable skills looking to join the on-demand workforce. Leave the candidate sourcing to the experts so you can focus on onboarding.
Streamline and automate your onboarding with integrated solutions
Flexible integration is key to streamlining your onboarding process. Ensure your background check provider has an API in place that can seamlessly integrate your tech stack. Integrated solutions, like the one linking Accurate and Bullhorn, increase efficiency with a real-time exchange, improved data integrity, and a single interface for simplicity.
From drivers to cashiers to warehouse workers, automating your adjudication guidelines at a granular level means not having to review every report, saving you time and resources.
With Accurate’s automated adjudication tool you can create scoring settings for each position, eliminating back and forth in the screening process – delivering quicker background results.
Implement scalable technology that can adapt to your changing hiring needs
With scalable technology, you get the agility to increase or decrease the range of services to manage volume fluctuations.
Prepare for the upcoming peak hiring season with static kiosk links and high-volume processing capabilities to support your hiring demands.
For large hiring events, kiosks are the perfect on-demand option for executing mass background checks without placing an order. At Accurate, we offer bulk screening with a static link to manage your workflow.
Hiring spikes can often be the result of client demands. Look for a background check provider that offers a scalable infrastructure to adapt to changing requirements quickly. No matter the level of complexity, scale your workforce as needed.
