Effectiveness of efficient stack ranking

What are some of the common challenges in candidate shortlisting?

  1. Time-Consuming Selection Process: Reviewing resumes, conducting interviews, and evaluating candidates can be a tedious task. Recruiters often struggle to maintain objectivity and consistency throughout the evaluation process.
  2. Subjective Decision-making: The lack of a standardized candidate evaluation approach often leads to subjective decision-making. Without a clear framework for comparing applicants, recruiters may inadvertently miss out on top talent or make biased decisions.
  3. Identifying the Best-fit Candidate: Differentiating between qualified candidates can be challenging, especially when their skills and experiences closely align. Recruiters need a system that enables them to rank candidates based on specific criteria and identify the best-fit individual for the role.

What is stack ranking?

Stack ranking is a performance assessment method that involves evaluating and ordering employees or candidates based on their performance compared to others. This process generates categories like high, medium, and low achievers. It aims to recognize top talent and help in decision making.

Why is stack ranking important in the hiring process?

Recruiting the right talent is crucial for any organization's success. Yet, with a large pool of candidates, making informed hiring decisions can be overwhelming for recruiters and hiring managers. Ensuring the quality of the candidate funnel is very important in hiring the right candidates.
