Hi Friends,

In the current Scenario, Organisations talk about Cost cutting measures in different divisions. HR Dept is a no exception. The only way we can manage is by Improving the process.

I have been in the field for the past 3Yrs. Currrently working as Asst Mgr Ė Talent Acquisition. I was on Clientís side as well as the vendorís side. So I understand the pains and gains of both sides. Having gained experience in Recruitments, I have done a study on the process. I find a scope of improving the process.

Hence I designed a process flow for Recruitments. Lean Management is the idea behind the same. Lean is removing waste from the process. How better we understand the bottlenecks and improve the process is the main feature of Lean Management.

Recruitment has few challenging tasks like Recruitment cost, Turn around time (TAT), Offer Ė joining ratio. In this process, I have concentrated on Turn around time (Time from the requisition is raised by Dept till the candidate is on-board). Iíve categorized the process into 4 parts which are self explanatory.

There are two aspects in the process. Value added (VA) and Non value added (NVA). Both are relative to Departments. There are few issues which are NVA to the Depts. If such areas are concentrated more, there can be decrease in the TAT, which every recruiter dreams of.

Hope every one welcomes my trial in recruitment process improvement and make the division stand on top in HR Dept.

Hi Pavan,
Greetings from GLOBALedge.
I am a lover of LEAN concepts and trying to implement them in clients locations. I understand that LEAN can be used almost everywhere, though it was originally formulated by persons in the Automobile field.
Your idea gives a new dimension to the usage of LEAN. Thank you very much for sharing such a nice work and I request you to post things of this kind which will be useful to many of us.
Thanks & regards,

Hi Pavan,
Reviewed your process and must definately say its a fantastic piece of work. However; the process that you have recommended is usually the same almost with all companies espically with IT cos and also the timelines/SLAs for each stage is less or more the same.
I totally agree with you as Lean Managt in Recruitment should be focused on Cost Cutting & TAT. But I think we should come up with more initatives as the TAT in the process shows mini 38 & max 81 which is a extreme gap. Frankly, the timelines for each stage also has extreme gaps. Can we work-out on a practical model wherein we can arrive on the average timelines for each stage?
Considering the MUST following few facts:
  • Mini notice period of a corporate hire - 30 days
  • Time involved in Background verification(which is usually before releasing the offer) - 7-10 days
Appreciate your inputs on these lines.
Kind Regards,

Dear Pavan,
Don't you think it needs few more patch up in the process that you have floated.
Why can't we be lot more selective in the screening the CVs as per the JD; it helps us save time.

Hi Frnds,
Thnx for giving your feedback on my attempt to incorporate Lean in Recruitment Process.
We've started working on Lean mgmt in our dept. Time lines for each requisition have been reduced (Targeted).
Rightly said by one of frnds that the process need few more improvements. This was just a trial given by me. We are finalising a complete Lean Process for our dept. Final process shows that the lead time and process time are getting reduced and there is a huge increase in accuracy of the process.
Detailed dicussion on this is appreciated from fellow members of the group.
