In many organisations, graduates are often the future lifeblood of the company, so when you find a graduate who excels, it’s vital that you’re able to quickly spot their talents and offer them a suitable role within your company.
When done well, graduate recruitment can play a key role in the future success of your business.
- Time wasted having to sort through vast quantities of graduate applicants
- Finding graduates who are the right fit for your organisation
- Reducing the churn rate of new graduates on initial hire
- Providing an overall positive recruitment experience for graduates
- Eliminating bias in the graduate hiring process
The recent explosion in growth of mobile technology has fundamentally changed the recruitment industry and the way graduates think about employment.
Recruiting (and retaining) graduates has proven to be one of the more challenging areas for HR teams as graduates have one of the highest rates of turnover in the recruitment industry, with as much as a quarter of them leaving within the first year.
For HR professionals and recruiters this means that you can no longer rely on the traditional hiring methods to find the best graduates.
In order to have any chance of finding and retaining your best graduates recruiters must leverage the power of psychometric assessments, mobile technology and big data and then be innovative enough to be able to attract the graduates that stand out.
With 2000 applications to ‘hand-screen’ we were faced with a real resource problem. Psycruit not only came up with a great solution, their in-depth knowledge of retail meant that the information gathering process was thorough, and the scenarios created were varied, accurate and appropriately challenging. In addition to this, we initially set very tight time-scales for the project – they met our deadlines every step of the way.
