When it comes to recruiting, consistency is key.

There are huge benefits of keeping a consistent process for both the company and candidate.  This is true specifically when recruiting in the Mental & Behavioral Health Industry. The candidate pool is tightening, and organizations are preparing for a shortage of Candidates within the next 10 years.

It is imperative to ensure that the best person is hired for the role the first time to help reduce turnover and retain top talent.

A solid consistent process is key in order to ensure that the best person is hired for the role. No matter where the candidate is sourced, this process is implemented for all candidates. Consistency in the process ensures organizations are comparing “Apples to apples”. It verifies that all the questions are asked,  and everyone is on the same page before the offer goes out.

In addition, partnering with consulting organizations helps streamline the process, and maintains consistency with the process.

Processes include the following:

  • Clear and concise job descriptions
  • Job selection committee dedicated to making hiring recommendations for the role
  • Clearly outlined interview process
  • Reference check requirements identified
  • Credentialing requirements communicated to candidate
  • Clear communication plan to candidates throughout process

Creating a consistent process is key to hiring the best person for the role, the first time.
