The 8-Step Recruiting Process

I’m regularly asked how we succeed in finding our clients great talent so I figured I’d post the key to our success – Ridgeback’s 8-Step Recruiting process.

The 8-Step Process was put together by reviewing best practices looking for the best approach so we can plug into a client’s recruiting process without causing friction or slowing their system. What we’ve found is that our process becomes the backbone of our clients system and therefore have become committed to it as it allows us to find great talent in a highly efficient manner.

As you read each step below, you’ll see how the talent funnel (pipeline continually gets narrower as we get closer to the right candidates for the opening.

1. RECEIVE THE POSITION

Our clients share details of the skills and requirements of the role. We meet internally to discuss options and tactics.

2. CLIENT KICK-OFF CALL

We have a kick-off meeting with our client to hash out the details of the request and set expectations on potential talent.

3. REFINE JOB DESCRIPTION

Following the kick-off meeting, it’s not uncommon for the job description to require revisions. We make appropriate edits to ensure we find the right talent.

4. BEGIN THE TALENT HUNT

Once the description is finalized, our team pools together skilled candidates from our database of 3 million+ prospects.

5. CONTACT THE A-LISTERS

Our recruitment team screens the selected candidates, and then contacts the most qualified talent on the list.

6. QUALIFY THE TALENT

After making contact, we re-verify that the details on the candidate’s profile align with the skills expected by our client.

7. CONDUCT INTERVIEWS

We pick the cream of the crop and begin interviews with each candidate to build rapport and set the expectations of the job

8. SUBMIT TO THE CLIENT

Once we identify the most promising candidates, we pass our recommendations to our client for review and approval. If approved, an offer will be made.
