They turn to HR and the Recruitment staff to "point the finger" when they lose candidates to their competitors. Regardless of your company's reputation, location, perks, etc., if you can't compete in terms of money, you're losing the best candidates.

2. Is your recruitment process designed to continuously attract the highest caliber applicants? Casting an on-going wide net to obtain and retain a strong workforce is key to your organization's overall success. Internal recruiting efforts must focus on creating a quality candidate experience, while utilizing recruiting agencies and third-party recruiters as passive sourcing partners is key to improving your bottom line.

3. Does your company reward top performers and create an environment of collaboration? If you look at some of the strongest companies around the world, they typically share one thing in common--their culture is all about the team, and individuals who contribute above and beyond expectations are rewarded for their performance. Organizations fail to attract the best candidates when their culture is negative and lacking a true sense of the team concept.

RecruitAlliance helps recruiters and hiring managers communicate more effectively.Regardless of the number of tough-to-fill jobs your organization has at any given time, it's important that you have established relationships with third-party recruiters who are ready and able to provide you with a consistent flow of top quality candidates. Where to find the right recruiting or staffing agency who can produce results can be a challenging and time-consuming effort in its own right. Here are 4 tips to help hiring managers find the right talent acquisition assistance, when they need it most.

1. Target contingency recruiters who are experts in your "space." In order to fill your open requisitions in the most efficient and effective manner, you must work with those recruiting specialists who have a large database of qualified candidates who fit the profile for your position. Generalists may have a higher volume of candidates in their database, but if their background is not targeted, your time will be wasted. Always know the recruiters' area of expertise, and leverage this.

2. Ask your recruiter for specific deliverables and specify the dates you want results. Remember, it's not enough to say "I want candidates yesterday!" Determine when you are available to interview and communicate your target date to hire.

3. Communication is the key to results. Are you providing timely feedback to your recruiters once you've seen his or her candidates? This doesn't have to be a daunting process--but it's necessary for recruiters to tweak their search efforts. The client/recruiter relationship is only successful if it's a two-way street.

4. Simplify the recruiter vetting and relationship management process. RecruitAlliance empowers employers and hiring managers to leverage the right recruiters to recruit the right candidates in the most effective manner.

From their dashboard, hiring managers can assess recruiter performance and manage the work flow of the relationship, from beginning to hire.
