Employees are the foundation of a strong and long-lasting organization, so be sure to find the top employees who best fit your process to achieve the company’s goals and take care of them throughout this journey. To achieve this, the hiring process is critical to the company’s success, as are other processes.
The hiring process has evolved and is adopting new methodologies to streamline the process. This evolving process will be the focus of this blog, also we will discuss the future of the hiring process and other related issues with this topic.
History of the hiring process
The recruitment process is ancient. In 1650, for example, Henry Robinson proposed an office for addresses and meetings that would bring employers and employees together. When he proposed this to the British Parliament, his proposal was rejected, but he did not give up. He went ahead and founded the employment office on his own. At that point, his goal had not yet been achieved, but the vision behind it was revolutionary.
But after Edison’s efforts, there were many other people who tried to find a way to work with people they think are the best to achieve their goals. Thomas Edison made the same effort at the beginning of the 20th century. He developed a series of exams with 150 questions that he asked applicants to weed out those who he felt did not have the necessary knowledge, and here we can relate the job interviews of our century to Edison’s approach.
The technology in the recruitment of candidates
The way candidates are hired took a new direction in 1994 when the job board Monster offered a user-friendly interface that directly connected job seekers and employers. Since then, there are several platforms where you can find the job that you think is a better fit for you. The LinkedIn platform is very powerful, and we recommend everyone open an account and benefit from the network as well as the other networks.
Technology has helped make the hiring process easier for both companies and candidates because you can find a job and save time at the same time.
