High volume hiring refers to when an organization recruits and hires anywhere from a few dozen employees to thousands of employees in a short period of time. This approach to hiring is often used for hourly roles and high volume hiring is more common than some might think – according to research from HR.com, 73% of large organizations engage in high volume recruiting.
Top employers invest a significant amount of budget in attracting candidates to their open roles, often spending well over $100,000 each year on employer branding. While brand is important, attracting talent with engaging branding doesn’t matter if you end up losing candidates to a slow recruitment process.
In today’s competitive hiring market, hourly candidates have their pick of jobs and often juggle multiple potential opportunities at once. Given this, candidates are increasingly “ghosting” recruiters – meaning they completely stop responding, rather than letting the employer know when they’re no longer interested in a role.
