Our candidate management philosophy
Arthur Rose Associates took a long, hard look at the way companies
have traditionally approached candidate management. We were struck
by the amount of time that HR managers tended to spend doing routine
tasks. In fact, they devote so much time to the "nuts and bolts"
of candidate management that the more strategic issues — defining
requirements and designing jobs to satisfy them, anticipating staffing
needs, sitting down with applicants to determine if they "fit"
within the corporate culture, and ensuring that offers are attractive
without straining budget parameters — often fall by the wayside.
It seemed only natural to us that HR managers would welcome the
intervention of a candidate management specialist to assume their
day-to-day responsibilities and duties and allow them to concentrate
their energies on strategic decision-making.
