Optimizing the screening process should be a priority for those in talent acquisition. That’s the view of Craig Sweeney, Senior Vice President of Global Strategic Talent Solutions at WilsonHCG, who made the comments during an interview with reporters at HRO Today.
He said there will be a lot of companies getting ready to ramp as the economy lifts and there will be more candidates than ever to screen.
“There will inevitably be more candidates to screen over the coming months, but more applications don’t necessarily mean more people who are qualified for the roles to which they apply,” Craig said.
He added: “Therefore, screening processes need to be optimized so they’re as efficient as possible. Moving forward, finding candidates with the right skills will become more time-consuming as there will be more resumes to screen.”
As the SVP of Global Strategic Talent Solutions, Craig leads WilsonHCG's new client development across the world.
