Traditional Recruitment Moving to Digital Age
An organization is nothing without employees and thus, having a strong recruitment setup is one of the best things a company should have.
Finding ideal talent in the jargon of a competitive market has become really difficult and human resource managers are trying new methods every day to find the best possible talent.
Everyone wants to net the talent that will develop the organization and help beat the competition.
And then there are two different types of hunting talent…
Traditional & digital recruitment methods.
Both methods are packed with their own pros and cons but both are helpful in finding the best candidates.
Let’s have a look at some of their features…
Traditional recruitment methods
Newspapers are the oldest methods of communication to hunt for the people. They are read by most people even today.
2. Local employment offices
These establishments were once an effective way to invite people for the job interview. These local employment offices used to offer training, a huge database and even financial aid to hiring programs.
3. Internal hiring
One of the time tested methods and one amongst the easiest ones. The team itself knows who will be the best fit for the position, who has the right potential, their working background, style, and performance. It used to work well.
4. Temporary Employment Agencies
Temporary Employment Agencies used to help in shortlisting candidates and find people best fit for the companies’ preferences and experience requirements.
Along with the mentioned advantages, traditional methods used to have many cons like the possibility of partiality while choosing the person, lack of transparency and so on.
