Good things take time. Especially when it comes to the quality of hire and hiring speed.

On average, it takes 24 days to fill a job posting, and that can be very stressful for both talent acquisition teams and candidates. Not only will it drain the company’s resources, but it can also drive talent acquisition specialists to jump the gun and make hasty decisions rather than the right ones.

When the hiring speed slows down, the pool of qualified candidates tends to shrink as well. Therefore, quality of hire and hiring speed come hand in hand when it comes to optimizing the recruitment process.

So is there a way that you can have both?

Of course!

In this article, we will share with you the best tips that will help talent acquisition teams boost the quality of hire and hiring speed…at the same time!
