How Should Teams Of Recruiters Remain Relevant On The Market

Employees who cannot keep up the pace with technologies are getting redundant. What about your recruiters?

Michal Juhas on Apr 02, 2019

As a manager in a recruiting agency, you care about your bottom line, don’t you?

I see daily how recruitment leaders struggle to keep their teams up to date with technologies.

What is one great thing about technologies? They evolve at an increasingly higher pace. Which is great on the one hand—but brings additional challenges to you as a team leader. How to upskill the team, right?

I believe recruiters who cannot keep up the pace with technologies are getting redundant.

And it’s not just about content consumption, passive learning. There’s abundance of content out there. Countless YouTube videos, zillions of Udemy courses. Or maybe a tech-savvy colleague sitting next to you.

But that’s not enough. There’s a lack of real transformation.

Generic training can only get you this far. Getting your team of recruiters to the next level requires more than a set of random YouTube videos or Udemy courses.

How To Stay Relevant In Rapidly Evolving New-Tech Space

The biggest challenge for big IT firms is to re-train more than half of their existing workforce.

Let’ face it. If IT companies and developers struggle due to the significant shift in technology over the past few years, how can recruiters afford not to learn continuously?

Geekruiter Training Is Different

Our online courses, webinars and on-site workshops are not generic. They are not suitable for lawyers or filmmakers or politicians. They are only good for recruiters because we focus on specific needs that only recruiters have.

We prefer continuous learning over one-off full-day workshops. If you invite us to deliver a one-day workshop, we are likely to decline. If you are serious about upskilling your team, you need to embrace the mindset of continuous learning and growth.

Make A Clear Plan About Re-skilling And Training

For us at Geekruiter, upskill is about putting new knowledge in place. Lot’s of practice. Training. Rehearsing the phrases. That builds recruiter’s confidence at the end of the day.

I believe recruiters need to become more confident to hire more developers.

Is there anything like a confidence KPI? Well, maybe.

KPIs We Focus On

Can we go a step further than monitoring confidence levels? Let’s design our training to target clear KPIs and increase recruiter’s confidence on the way.

Geekruiter focuses on these KPIs:

1. Conversion rate

Let’ increase the conversion rate of the developers you reach out to, interview, and hire eventually.

2. Onboarding time

Let’s decrease the on-boarding time of your junior team members.

Generic training can only get you this far. Getting your team of recruiters to the next level requires more than a set of random YouTube videos or Udemy courses.

3. Revenue

Let’s hire more developers and increase your revenue and the bottom line.

Finally, money is what matters! A confident recruiter who speaks the same language as developers do, with a solid understanding of the technologies can bring so much more commission!

Wait no more to upskill your team with Geekruiter.
