From our own experience during the last decade and beyond, we see companies taking polarising views on what they consider as a successful recruitment process and who should be involved in it. Too many companies are in too much of a rush and try to squeeze interviews into an already overcrowded diary and instead prioritising their day to day job requirements.

Recruiting at any level is a significant investment for your organisation and should be considered as you would any capital expenditure. Would you squeeze an hour into your diary to consider and select a £multi-million robot that will transform your business? No, then why would you invest such little time to assess and choose a new employee who could deliver a similar result?

 This article provides evidence that recruitment decisions are more likely to be successful when multiple interviewers are involved and I wholeheartedly agree. Not only that but multiple stages including one in an informal environment is always what we recommend to our clients.
