About the Hiring Process template

What is a Hiring Process?

Hiring a new employee is no small feat. It’s a cross-functional, resource-intensive process. For most organizations, hiring a new employee is a multi-step exercise to identify the company’s needs, the team’s needs, and to assess potential candidates. 

Why use the Hiring Process template?

Hiring a new employee can be a complex process. There are a lot of applicant tracking systems that provide a detailed run-through of where each candidate is in the hiring process. However, sometimes it's useful to be able to provide a simple, high-level view of where employees are as they move from applicant to new hire. You can use Miro's hiring process template if you don't have another tracking system, or if you want to easily share a status with stakeholders.

What are the stages of the hiring process?

1. Identify the need. Do you need to fill a position that just opened? Lighten a team’s workload? Change something from an organizational perspective?

2. Devise a recruitment plan. The recruitment team needs to figure out how the role aligns with the company’s goals and business plan. They also must devise criteria for candidate screening and decide who will conduct interviews.

3. Write a job description and advertise the position.

4. Review applications.

5. When applications start to come in, many organizations do an initial phone screening. Phone interviews assess the candidate’s basic qualifications and culture fit.

6. Interview! Early interviews are often one-on-one, but candidates may later engage in group interviews.

7. Conduct background checks. Review the candidate’s criminal record, verify their employee history, and talk to their references.

8. Make a job offer!

9. Once you’ve made an offer, the process doesn’t stop there. The employee must then fill out their hiring paperwork. That might include their W-4, I-9, state withholding and registrations, and the employee handbook.
