In this post, Vishwas talks about how every employee should feel passionate about recruitment and contribute towards the growth of the company.
Every employee should contribute to the talent acquisition efforts of the company. Period. There is no debating this.
My post is in reaction to many messages & comments pointing to a stark reality that most people don’t bother to refer candidates to open positions in a company. When someone sends you their profile, the least you could do is glance through & analyze whether they fit a role in your company. Referrals are key to hiring exceptional talent for any firm.
I don’t know whether this is laziness, being aloof or it’s lack of awareness. I say this because one could win a handsome referral bonus too. Why not grab it? Perhaps, it’s also because your KRAs don’t depend on how many people you refer? We need to change this trend & drive home a point that everyone should be responsible for recruitment of their teams.
Now, I understand that you cannot respond to everyone who sends you resumes. But as long as you have referred valid profiles to your company, I think you have done your job. You won’t be contributing to your company’s success if you ignore them.
Let everyone feel passionate about bringing in the right talent. Let there be a culture where the entire workforce is company’s brand ambassador in talent acquisition, rather than just the HR department.
