Recruiting Scrum

Do you have a lot of Meetings?   How often do you meet?  I think that sometimes we meet too often and lose productivity and sight of our goals.    At the same time, it is also important to meet and know what the Recruiting team is doing and working on.

Do you have a virtual or in-house Recruiting team?    Do you meet and review daily?    I recommend implementing a Daily Recruiting Scrum.   Scrum is not just an IT Term – it is an approach ( A Methodology) that can be used in other industries and jobs.

What is a Daily Recruiting Scrum?   It is a Meeting that starts, on time daily (the earlier the better) with all members of the Team.   Each person will discuss two things:   What they did yesterday and what their plans are for today.   It is a brief 1-2 minute sentence from each member.   That’s it.   Basic and effective.

This way everyone knows what each other is doing and what they did yesterday.   It holds everyone accountable for what they said they are going to be working on.   It is the place to ask for help if you need any.   Try it and see what happens.
