Finding the best talent in the highly competitive job market of the Philippines is crucial for the success of any company. At SkyeDesk, we have developed a unique and effective recruitment process that has enabled us to identify exceptional employees for our clients. In this article, we will share our approach and provide valuable insights backed by data on how it can benefit your company's search for top talents.

Defining the Job Requirements: Finding the Perfect Match

A study conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) found that 67% of hiring failures were a result of unclear job requirements. It is essential for companies to dedicate time and effort to defining the job requirements clearly. At SkyeDesk, we collaborate closely with our clients to gain a deep understanding of the role, the skills needed, and the cultural fit required. This step ensures that we find candidates who are the perfect match for the position and the company's values.

Posting in Targeted Channels: Reaching Passive Candidates

Did you know that 70% of the global workforce is made up of passive candidates who are not actively looking for a job? By posting job descriptions in targeted channels, such as industry-specific communities and social media platforms, we can reach potential candidates who might not be actively seeking new opportunities. Furthermore, employee referrals are a valuable source of talent, with studies showing that referred candidates have a 46% retention rate after one year, compared to 33% for non-referred candidates. Companies should leverage their networks and encourage employee referrals to tap into this high-quality talent pool.

Thorough Assessments: Uncovering Hidden Talents

A comprehensive assessment process is essential for identifying the best candidates. SkyeDesk employs a combination of online skills tests, phone interviews, and face-to-face interviews, ensuring a holistic evaluation of each candidate's abilities and potential. According to research by LinkedIn, 89% of hiring failures are due to a lack of soft skills. Therefore, we also incorporate behavioral assessments to assess a candidate's attitude, work ethic, and cultural alignment. This rigorous evaluation process uncovers hidden talents and ensures that we select candidates who not only possess the right skills but also fit seamlessly into the company's culture.

Positive Candidate Experience: Building Your Employer Brand

The candidate experience plays a significant role in shaping your employer brand. A study by CareerBuilder revealed that 68% of candidates believe the way they are treated during the hiring process reflects how the company treats its employees. At SkyeDesk, we understand the importance of providing a positive and engaging candidate experience. Clear and timely communication, regular updates, and providing feedback not only create a favorable impression of your company but also increase the likelihood of candidates accepting job offers.

Selecting the Best Candidate: Data-Driven Decision Making

Data-driven decision making is a critical aspect of our recruitment process. By leveraging data and insights from assessments, we ensure that our selection process is objective and focused on finding the best candidate for the role. According to a study by McKinsey, data-driven organizations are 23 times more likely to acquire customers, six times more likely to retain customers, and 19 times more likely to be profitable as a result. By employing data-driven insights, companies can make informed hiring decisions that lead to long-term success.
