recruiting and human resources help rhode island

As a recruiter, it’s my job to find the best candidates for an open position at any company. Traditionally, it was then the responsibility of the hiring manager to invite the candidate in, interview them, and make the final decision of who to hire. However, in this new age, more and more innovative companies are finding that by involving more stakeholders in the decision making process they are creating a system of checks and balances that gives them a better idea of who the perfect candidate is.

By including other partners in the hiring process, they are able to provide an objective perspective that takes into account the bigger needs of the business. Stepping outside of just the department of the hiring manager, will ensure that each departments needs are being met, and that the potential employee will work with the company as a whole. While a hiring manager may have short-term goals, their desire to fill a position quickly may end with a candidate being overlooked, or chosen, even if they aren’t the perfect fit.

With multiple people involved in the decision making process, different points of view can be heard. They can ask questions that one person may forget, find things that one person may not and formulate different opinions. Instead of just one person pushing through, or vetoing, a potential candidate, a group can weigh the pros and cons of each person. This will make sure that the person that gets the job is truly the best employee for the company.

While this may take more time and involve more resources, filling an empty space with a candidate that can fill the needs of the entire company, not just one department, will save both money and time in the long run.
