If you want to find the best candidate out there, you have to be innovative when recruiting.

Thinking out of the box also means you don't have to bear all that recruitment stress alone. You can get a helping hand. After all, two heads are better than one.

All you have to do is get creative!

Just involve your current employees in your recruitment process.

Here are three ways to do it...


Before we get to the methods, take a look at the benefits of involving current employees in your recruitment process
 

Human Resources Expert, Susan M. Heathfield says organisations that fail to use current employees when recruiting are underutilising one of their most important assets.
 
She says, if your current employees participate in the selection process, they will be more committed to helping the new employee to succeed.  It can't get any better than that for you and the new employee.
 
Another great thing about involving current employees is, you'll be killing two birds with one stone.
 
Candidates will see that you take views by your staff seriously and you encourage them to participate when it comes to key processes. In addition, your current employees will feel that you value them and their views – which is good for productivity.
 
So how do you get employees involved?

Use these three methods to involve your current employees in your recruitment process
 

According to Heathfield, you have three opportunities to involve your employees in the hiring process:
 
  1. You can ask your employees to recommend excellent candidates to your company;
 
  1. You can ask them to help you review CVs and qualifications of potential candidates; and
 
  1. They can help you interview candidates to assess their potential 'fit' within your company.
 
Note: If you decide to involve current employees, make sure you train them on the relevant laws and other aspects of the recruitment process.
 
The bottom line: You don't have to go it alone, involve your current employees in your recruitment process. This could be the key to finding the right candidate.
