How to shift to virtual recruiting or remote hiring processes?
Like it or not, your organization has decided to move ahead with virtual recruitment as the standard. What are the changes that need to be made?
Analyse all parts of your hiring process
Identify which parts need your immediate attention to transition online. Most or all of your sourcing efforts would already be virtual. Interviewing, offer management and onboarding are some of the tough areas to conquer virtually. Don’t miss out on smaller but important parts like collecting interview feedback from the panel.
Bring on gradual change
Don’t blindly change all your processes overnight. Some of your existing processes might still work well virtually too. So don’t go about fixing them all unless they pose a challenge to the rest of the hiring process.
INVEST IN THE RIGHT TOOLS

What you shouldn’t do is miss out on tracking the impact that moving to virtual recruitment is having on your hiring process and its output.
