Purpose of a Role Kick Off

Before any job is opened in our ATS (Applicant Tracking System), or posted on our career site, we must complete a Role Kick Off. This will help the search run more efficiently and save time trouble-shooting down the line, by ensuring best practices in the following areas are implemented from the start!
Role Alignment
Make sure everyone involved in the search is aligned on the purpose for the role, and the bar for evaluation, which should translate to a clear rubric for interviewer evaluation.
Hiring Team Responsibilities
Everyone should be on the same page regarding the roles of each team member, and expectations on the work required from each one of them to make successful hires.
Efficient Process
The hiring process is clear, streamlined, DEI-friendly, and allows the team to move fast without sacrificing candidate experience.
Strategic Planning
Have a clear strategic pathway to filling this role: what metrics should we set, how long will it take based on the market, what are some tailored tactics & strategies we can employ to maximize success.
