Bulk recruitment - employee referral.. CiteHR

mamta_ailani Started The Discussion:


Can anyone suggest me the ways the HR executives do bulk recruitment, i mean placing the 25 - 30 candidates per month, what are the strategies and way of sourcing they follow, specially if we get the oppoturnity to work in any international call centre.

advertise for walk-ins on convenient days (like weekend)..and then a little slower way is sourcing CVs from portal and calling them for interview...

if the profiles are for call centre execs..then they are not the ones with any niche skills that you would have to hunt for here and there.."Walk-In" would be just fine!

Hi Mamta,
One of the best ways to hire in bulk in such numbers has been networking and employee referral.
By networking, I mean not just networking with your tribe , but also networking with your employees and the employees that you have hired.They would be the best source for bulk hiring as they would refer their tribe.
If there is a referral incentive attaached, however minimal it is, it always adds value and will actually speed up the process.
Trust me, if you are thinking about bulk hiring in the long run, a good PR exercise with the old employees and the employees that you have hired during your time and a referral incetive attached to every referred employee will work wonders.
I have been part of a team which did close to about 150+ hiring in just a month and that too for frontline sales (that's even tougher than sourcing for call centre crowd!!)

All the best in your endeavour.

Hi Darshana - Appreciating your idea. I completely agree with you.

Mates I'm adding few more points to Darshana's view.

- When you are calling a candidate let him/her know about multiple openings and request them to call their freinds for the interview.
- Better calling HR coordinators in Colleges / Universities for fresher's recruitment.
- When you receive a call from unknown (credit cards), you share about the job available with your comapny and also you can try head hunting candidates from call customer care centres (banks or mobile/internet service providers). I'm sure that you will have lot of fun and njoy your work for sure when you try these....

Happy Recruiting :-)

Share your comments on the same...

Hi All, Do you think that trying to tell people about the openings who are trying to sell credit cards to us, will be a fair deal. I think not. What Say?

Hi Fabio,

In retail, poaching from other company is bit easy at front end level and apart from this the best way to source candidate is to put a drop box for resumes at the help desk of outlet so that the customers also help us refering interested candidate to appear for this kind of jobs.
