How Recruitment Agencies benefit from using SmartSurvey
Online survey software has multiple uses and Recruitment agencies are a key example of the benefits that can be gained from utilising both basic and advanced software features when collecting data.
Recruitment Agencies, aspiring to match organisations with the very best people, understand the importance of gathering information and streamlining the data collection process. Online surveys can be used as the foundation to develop the collection of data to maximise recruitment systems.
Data collected can provide valuable information about current employees, the recruiting process and employee retention. When done as part of an ongoing review process, gathering information via surveys will help develop client relationships and source exceptional candidates.
Benefits of gathering data with surveys
It all starts with having accurate, actionable data. One of the most beneficial factors of using surveys is being able to collect and store easily accessible information when carrying out the recruitment process.
Recruiters rely on information they gather to find the right person for the right job. Filtering key data fields, such as education, work experience, location and other demographics, makes it easy to identify relevant qualified candidates from thousands of job seekers.
Surveys make creating databases and streamlining processes simple. When evaluating data, you can register respondents’ requests and identify individuals who are willing to take the extra step for chances to improve their skills. Not only will this help to identify job opportunities and create a productive employee base, but it can also show you which employees are outperforming others and who might be motivated and ready to advance their careers further.
Beyond recruitment - surveys for the employee lifecycle
For HR teams and employers, surveys need not stop once the recruitment stage is complete. Run onboarding surveys to understand new starters' experiences and feelings about their new role, their colleagues and the culture. Capture 360 feedback for better-informed, impactful appraisals. Or run regular employee pulse surveys to quickly identify and respond to any developing trends or workplace issues. These are just a few examples of the insights an employee survey program can have throughout the employee lifecycle. From selection to exit, we've got you covered.
Using surveys in the recruitment process
By referring to data you collect over time, you will be able to identify patterns regarding employee placement, which in turn will help you manage staff turnover rates and plan strategies for acquiring valuable talent and determining career paths. Matching professional and personal attributes, including the soft skills that interest employers, makes determining career paths and climbing the career ladder a simpler process.
