Organizations often scale hiring efforts up or down to meet fluctuating demands for talent–even in a normal business environment. However, this has been more common recently as businesses dealt with the impact of COVID-19 stay at home orders. Companies have now weathered the economic storm and many are now rapidly implementing high volume hiring strategies to meet accelerating and changing business demands.
In a time when it is essential to ramp up hiring quickly, talent acquisition professionals must embrace advanced human resource (HR) technology to keep up. eSkill’s suite of innovative hiring tools enables employers to streamline their talent pipeline and hire the best candidates faster and at scale.
These are five strategies for developing a high-quality, technology-driven high volume hiring process.
When developing a high volume hiring strategy, it is important to create a detailed and structured plan for hiring teams to follow.

While organizations’ steps in the hiring process will differ, here is a brief example of the steps to follow in a technology-driven high volume hiring process:
Carefully illustrating and communicating the steps in a high volume hiring process will ensure every member of the hiring team is on the same page and keep the talent pipeline moving.
The single best way to create a shortlist of top talent from hundreds or even thousands of applicants is to administer online skills tests that measure the specific skills and knowledge required to succeed in a position. A recent survey conducted by Indeed showed that pre-employment skills tests reduce the average time-to-hire by 27%.
Not only does skills testing provide a fast way to verify job-relevant competencies, but it is also extremely effective. According to Gallup, when organizations use the results of skills tests to make hiring decisions, they realize 21% higher profitability and experience 59% less turnover.
eSkill’s user-friendly employment testing platform enables employers to easily select, configure, and automate the administration and scoring of skills tests. With hundreds of customizable job-specific and skill-specific tests to choose from, it is possible to leverage skills tests to quickly identify the most qualified candidates.
Partnering with eSkill makes incorporating skills tests into your hiring process simple. Your dedicated U.S.-based Client Success Manager will guide you and your team through the entire testing process from test selection to automated administration and candidate ranking.
On-demand video interviews are ideal for use after the skills testing portion of the hiring process is complete, and help reduce the amount of time and resources spent on screening candidates. On-demand video interviews are far different than conducting a “live” interview over video conferencing apps like Zoom. Instead, eSkill’s on-demand video interviews prompt candidates to record responses to prerecorded questions at their convenience.
With eSkill’s on-demand video interviewing software, hiring teams can:
eSkill’s on-demand video interviews enable talent acquisition professionals to move more job-seekers through the hiring cycle, which accelerates the entire hiring process.
With eSkill’s tech-driven solutions, recruiters can automate time-consuming parts of the hiring process. And according to a LinkedIn survey, 68% of recruiting professionals agree that better recruiting technology is the top hiring performance booster.

An effective high volume hiring strategy automates as many portions of the hiring process as possible and enables organizations to scale up hiring efforts easily.
Many recruiters face a challenge when adding new HR technology solutions to their hiring process because many tools do not integrate. When tools lack integration capabilities, inefficiencies arise. This is not a problem with eSkill because its employment testing platform integrates seamlessly with popular Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and Learning Management Systems (LMS) which enables streamlined recruitment workflows. With an HR tech stack that facilitates a smooth high volume hiring process, organizations can improve both the candidate and recruiter experience.
