What is high-volume hiring? 

High-volume or mass hiring refers to the process of recruiting many candidates within a short period, often conducted by organizations with substantial workforce needs. This type of hiring is common in industries such as retail, customer service, healthcare, and seasonal businesses. Mass hiring can be driven by factors like business expansion, seasonal demands, or the need to replace a significant number of employees.

The Varied challenges based on alignments

“It is all about the Perspective.”

It is not an uncommon thought that different entities in an organisation face different challenges. The worries or concerns are primarily driven by what their goals, priorities, KPIs, and job functions are.

The entire process of recruitment too goes through this fundamental concept of ‘Varied alignment-based challenges’. For Instance, in the hiring scenario, while the Finance controller is particularly worried about the cost of onboarding per hire, the senior management of the brand team is particularly concerned about creating Brand endorsers through an impeccable brand image. The Internal Training team, however, is concerned about the quality of training grasped by the new hire.
