We're moving to a new online recruitment system and would like to use it as an opportunity to review our recruitment processes. Diversity and inclusion is particularly important and I've been looking for examples of what other organisations do around shortlisting and making a decision to help remove individual biases. At the same time we would like the process to be as streamlined as possible, because the way we do best practice at the moment can make it very time consuming.
Our current process would be something like:
1. 2 or 3 panel members including the line manager review and score anonymous applications online against each person spec point
2. Panel members have a discussion and agree which candidates they would like to shortlist
3. The same 2 or 3 panel members conduct the interviews using pre-agreed questions
4. Responses to each question for every candidate are scored separately by each panel member
5. The panel have a discussion about their scoring and who should be appointed
I'd appreciate any thoughts about whether the above seems reasonable or unnecessarily long, particularly points 1 and 4 where different panel members are scoring individually. And if anyone has been using a different approach they could recommend or even an ATS that supports inclusive recruitment.
