We asked our attendees, “When do you think a TA leader should jump in with a hiring manager?”
Here are their answers:
- As needed.
- As soon as the Recruiter or Hiring Manager engages you or you see things starting to turn in the wrong direction.
- Before the Hiring Manager goes to her/his manager.
- Business critical roles when hiring manager doesnt seem to have the authority to make decisions without their leaders approval
- Case by case. Certainly, as a new recruiter is assigned; on known hard to fill opportunities.
- Communication / policy clarification
- Communication with the leader should happen as soon as an issue arises. The leader should then decide when an how to address.
- Consistent Constructive feedback from the hiring manager and recruiter themselves unaware
- Depends on the seniority of the recruiter, for junior recruiters jump in early for more tenured recruiters coach them
- Depends on the situation
- Depends on the situation
- Early on if possible and then let go of the reigns
- Est strategy & direction
- every situation is different, it all depends
- good question! not sure, hoping to learn some of that on this webinar
- High interview to offer ratio
- I think it depends on the tenure/experience of the recruiter. But definitely if the recruiter asks for support.
- If the HM is aggressive, demeaning - immediately! Day-to-day situations, I give them more room to find their voice.
- If the HM is non-responsive and/or not approaching the recruiting process with respect and professionalism
- If there is a need; meaning critical high visibility search, any issues with the assigned TA rep, of a difficult/high touch mana
- It depends on many factors
- low volume, challenging market, opportunity open for extended period, etc.
- Not sure- curious to find out what the panelists discuss
- only after coaching a recruiter though the difficult discussions and there's no resolution at their level
- Partnering with the hiring manager should be a regular part of the leadership support of the business.
- Right from the intake meeting
- ROI - strategic role, high NPS impact
- TA Leaders should monitor the dashboard and if something is preventing the search from success, the TA Leader should step in
- There should be a close partnership with the recruiter and the recruiting mgr. Once the recruiter flags they need support.
- to help coach their recruiters
- When a manager is not getting their needs met
- When asked to do so by the recruiter, or the manager expresses concerns.
- When either the recruiter or hiring manager are not able to resolve their issues together.
- When it's been escalated to an executive or there area lot of hiring manager complaints.
- When requested by a team member.
- when the recruiter asks or the hiring manager is being unreasonable
- When the recruiter feels like they need support
- When the recruiter is hitting a roadblock and they have already tried to communicate.
- When the recruiter isn't making hires or there is a complaint
- When the recruiter or Hiring Manager come to the TA Leader
- When the team is getting down and they need direction. Everyone works together!
- When their is a communication breakdown. If the hiring manager has unrealistic expectations.
- when there are challenges above what the recruiter can handle, workforce planning
- when there is a bottleneck in the recruitment process when it comes to decision/candidate selection. OR if there is bias.
- When there is a breakdown in the process or expectations aren't being met on either end.
- when there is no progress with the recruiting - frustration on both sides
- when they are super frustrated
- when they do not like any candidates
- When your recruiter is showing signs of frustration/exhaustion with the hiring manager.
