Companies want vacant positions filled as quickly as possible. The two main reasons for wanting to hire fast are: loss in productivity while the position remains unfilled, and the cost of recruiting.
Although the old adage of “taking your time” may sometimes be the right game plan; more often than not “striking while the iron is hot” is the more accurate state of mind for recruiting.
Some negatives of a slow recruiting timeline are:
- The initial purpose-driven motivation you instilled in the recruiting team wears away as time goes on.
- With little time-based pressure, recruiters invest less effort.
- Applicants are exponentially less interested in an opportunity that doesn’t have quick feedback or a visible finish-line.
- Candidates that you may have had in the pipeline are steadily siphoned off to other opportunities as the days go by.
