Supply chain in the industry of recruiting
We are living in the world of fast and rapid changes, you can learn something today, but that will mean nothing tomorrow, we have to learn24hours a days even days a week,31days in month, and 365 days a year if we want to succeed and be competitive in the marketplace. Do you know that average customer spends 3x more time in the market trying to choose the right toothbrush, and toothpaste? Why? Because he has multiple choices, and he is confused because he doesn’t have an idea which one is the best, and because of that he is staring at the shelf with toothbrushes for about 15 minutes. Now you are asking yourself why are we talking you about toothbrushes when the subject is supply chain in the industry of recruiting. The reason is very simple because if you want to understand what is supply chain, and how you can use it in recruiting processes you need to know that supply chain has the most of guilty on the process of choosing a right toothbrush. So, first of all, we will explain to you what is a supply chain. Supply chain management (SCM) is the management of a network of interconnected businesses involved in the ultimate provision of product and service packages required by end customers. Supply Chain Management spans all movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. It defines SCM as the “design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand, and measuring performance globally.” A supply chain is a network of facilities and distribution options that performs the functions of procurement of materials, transformation of these materials into intermediate and finished products, and the distribution of these finished products to customers. 1 So you are justaskingrightnowwhereistheconnectionbetweensupplychainandrecruiting process? Recruiting is a long process which involves at least 2 sides, one is the employment company and the other one is the candidate, inthesituationofrecruitingagenciesthereare3 sides (3rt one is the recruiting company). They are all trying to achieve some goal, employment status. Company needs a good and productive candidate, to crease their business, candidate needs a new job with better salary, and recruiting company needs a satisfaction from both sides, from company and from candidate, because if they are satisfied the recruiting company will get positive feedback (we all know that feedback is the basis for successful business) more, and more customers means more business which means more money. Let me explain this is this way. Supply chains exist in both service and manufacturing organizations, although the complexity of the chain may vary greatly from industry to industry and firm to firm. Supply chain management is typically viewed to lie between fully vertically integrated firms, where the entire material flow is owned by a single firm, and those where each channel member operates independently. Usage of SCM in recruiting process is saving time in this complex process of finding the right candidate for the specific position, and even if recruiting companies are not the classic industry we can use supply chain management, because we have an end customer in this process, and his satisfaction is our biggest success.
