3 Ways Crosschq Helps Build Better Workforces in 2022

In 2022, it has become more important than ever to build an effective workforce. Thanks to the Great Resignation (or perhaps the Great Reshuffle, as many people have changed jobs in an effort to find a better fit for their needs), many employers are struggling to find the employees they need and build a strong workforce that will allow them to achieve their goals. 

Even with the dust starting to settle in many industries, some employers still need to replace employees who have left—or bring in new employees to help them achieve their business goals for the year.

Fortunately, Crosschq is here to help. Check out these three key ways Crosschq can help you build a better workforce in 2022.

1. Crosschq 360 Can Streamline Reference Checks

When you're committed to finding the right workforce, it's critical that you conduct effective reference checks. Traditional, manual reference checks are often far less effective than you might hope. They might be slow to come back, and you might not get the information you need from those references, especially in cases where the candidate is still working with at least one of their references.

Better Information at Your Fingertips

Crosschq 360 offers a better look at candidates' strengths and weaknesses, including their soft skills. Not only does it provide better insights into what it's really like to work with a candidate, including information about their specific capabilities, but it also allows you to compare the way candidates assess themselves to the way they are assessed by managers and coworkers. 

You'll get to know your candidates better, and as a result, you'll feel more confident about your hiring decisions. 

Faster Turnaround

In today's highly competitive environment, it's more critical than ever that you get answers to your reference checks as quickly as possible. Crosschq 360 can reduce overall turnaround time by as much as 85%, getting the information you need in your hands faster so that you're ready to make your candidates an offer as soon as possible. 

Thanks to those fast offers, you will be less likely to miss out on the candidates who are most likely to be a good fit for your business. 

2. Crosschq Recruit Keeps Larger Talent Pools at Your Fingertips

The ideal candidates for your job are out there, but you have to find them. Sometimes, it can be difficult to find the right candidates to build a better workforce. Your talent pool may feel as though it's growing stale, especially if you haven't had the chance to expand your reach recently or you aren't looking for qualified candidates in the right places.

Enter Crosschq Recruit.

Increase Your Candidate Pool

With Crosschq Recruit, you'll have access to a larger candidate pool: more people who are likely to fit the attributes you need and have the capability to fill the role you have open.
