#WorkTrends Recap: Quicker & Better: The Importance of Speed & Productivity in Recruitment

Today’s #WorkTrends show addressed the importance of speed and productivity in the recruiting process – a topic that is constantly relevant.

In a tight labor market with high demand for top talent, speed is critical to landing the best possible talent. We were joined by Kurt Jones, Director of Product Marketing for PeopleFluent.

According to Kurt, recruiting leaders need to focus on all of the areas in their control to make sure their teams are performing at peak productivity and with a constant sense of urgency.

Some of the things we discussed included:

  • How much wasted time costs an organization
  • Why speed and productivity should be top priorities for recruiters
  • How to capitalize on technology to keep talent pools fresh and accessible
  • How speed positively impacts the Candidate Experience

It was an active #WorkTrends podcast and Twitter conversation. Participants had a lot to share about their experiences with recruitment processes – both good and bad. Whether you’re intrigued by the topic of effective recruitment practices, considering revising your current talent acquisition strategies, or trying to figure out how to attract and retain top talent, this show had a little bit of something for everyone.
