Effective communication is a crucial component of recruitment as a whole. Our workforce, whether it be Nurses/Doctors/Healthcare Assistants etc. All work with us as a result of our effective communication. From the day that we first engage with a staff member, we make it our duty to ensure they are well informed about the work decision they are preparing to commit to with us. Below we will explore in slightly more detail, a few of the key components & go into some more detail:
- Attracting Candidates – Effective communication starts with attracting candidates. We ensure that our job postings are clear & as informative as can be, this helps a lot when a candidate is considering to apply or contact us about the position. We always aim to use clear language, highlight the key responsibilities of the role and emphasize the benefits of working with us, this is to help the candidate understand the position.
- Screening Candidates – This is a very critical part of the recruitment process. During this stage we aim to communicate all aspects of the role to the best of our capabilities. Going through all requirements, skills, experience etc along with answering any candidate specific questions regarding the role. Once this is all complete, the candidate should now fully understand what it is they are signing up for.
- Engaging Candidates – Once a candidate has been screened, we aim to effectively engage with them throughout the documentation process. To allow them to feel as comfortable as possible with their decision & to allow any potential changes on either side to be easily communicated.
- Onboarding & Training – If there are any role related trainings during the onboarding process, we aim to allow enough time for the candidate to successfully complete these trainings to ensure they are completely ready for the client we aim to allocate them to. This can include a range of different components, so we aim to always provide clear instructions, expectations and address any questions or concerns the candidate may have, ensuring full support from the beginning to the end of the process.
- Out To Work – Now the candidate has gone to their first shift. We make it a priority here to speak to them at the next convenient time. This is to find out how their shift went, answer any questions they may have following on from the experience & overall hear the happy voice of someone who’s made the right decision!
In conclusion, effective communication is essential for successful recruitment. So we always aim to be there for our staff & be as easily reachable as possible to give them the comfort of knowing they have our full support.
