The recruiting teams of companies that are constantly hiring due to consistent growth or inevitable attrition, dedicate a large portion of their time to such large-scale hiring.

Mass recruitment can prove to be a difficult task if there is a lack of streamlined processes. When dealing with hiring hundreds and thousands of employees, one seldom has the time to give each application individualized attention. A well-organized team paired with a well-designed bulk hiring process results in a fluid hiring pipeline and in turn successful mass recruitment.

In volume hiring, making full use of database management software to screen and filter through candidates saves many man-hours and energy while providing candidates who are eligible and suitable for the job role.
