SAN FRANCISCO – December 3, 2019, 8:00 AM PDT: SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company, launches today a definitive guide that showcases best practices and strategies that have enabled SmartRecruiters’ customers to achieve hiring success — hire the best talent for any role on demand and on budget.

The guide details the Hiring Success methodology that SmartRecruiters has built and applied with its customers over the last two years. “We’ve invested in this effort over the last couple years, because, while technology plays a key role in talent acquisition transformation, there is a need for equal emphasis on people and process innovation to deliver lasting hiring success outcomes,” says Rebecca Carr, SVP of Hiring Success at SmartRecruiters. “This guide is one more step towards shaping the future of enterprise talent acquisition.”

A number of new and validated principles and practices are introduced, spanning talent attraction frameworks, sourcing best practices, internal mobility, organizational structure, and management operating models. The guide  has received glowing reviews from the limited release edition.

“I can’t wait to share the Definitive Guide to Hiring Success with other talent acquisition leaders. In a competitive global talent market, candidates have grown to expect innovative and tailored experiences throughout their entire journey. Businesses must make hiring top talent a significant priority by deploying the right technologies and processes to stand out across all touchpoints.” says Celinda Appleby, Director of Talent Attraction at Visa.

Most strategic topics of the guide:

  • Hiring Success Scorecard – new metrics that have proven to be simple and easy to understand at the boardroom level, like the Net Hiring Score (measuring new hire and job fit )

  • A talent scarcity-impact framework – the basis for any talent attraction strategy – it segments hires into four categories and lays out tailored acquisition tactics and budget allocation per category 

  • A talent acquisition maturity model that helps companies score themselves on 30+ different areas of functional investment, and provides guidelines for building out the right mix of people, processes, and technologies to get to the desired maturity level

This is a natural next step in the evolution of the recruiting function, taking it from Staffing to Recruiting, followed by Talent Acquisition, and now to Hiring Success. “I cannot wait for the day when this has scaled and every company has a ‘VP of Hiring Success’ because we collectively made hiring the best talent for each job easy and possible,” says Jerome Ternyck, CEO at SmartRecruiters.
