Candidate Ownership - within a firm

Started this discussion. Last reply by Alan Fluhrer Mar 12, 2013. 19 Replies

I'm looking for examples of how people handle candidate ownership in an agency/firm.  In our case, the firm has grown - but at the start the recruiters barely used the database to note anything AND…Continue

"Had to add my 2 cents here as I have seen this done in many ways. Good and bad. There's a bit more to it and a few of the comments hit on these points. In the end this should be about creating, building and maintaining relationships. 1. There…"

"In our case - I don't want people to stop and look them up, and then ask someone if they can call them.  So with our new rule, chances are that there is a job order that is more than 2weeks old that they can be subbed to with all…"

"Honestly I find this topic exhausting.    I do think that two weeks is a bit much - and at the same time a huge improvement from what we had.   We also highly value "the golden rule" so in the example given where…"

"So let's look at a more specific example. Recruiter B is recruiting.  He's on the phone with someone who is not interested. The disinterested candidate refers his associate. Recruiter B calls this new candidate right after hanging up.…"

"Jerry- If they got one from a posting (that we paid for and our research team wrote the add and posted it) How much time have they really spent. If they place that candidate they get all of the comm or split just for having a conversation.(Company…"

"There are parts of what everyone is saying that I agree with.... and disagree with. If it is a perm full-desk shop, then IMHO the candidate should belong to the recruiter for life. That is as long as they have fully documented the conversations and…"

"So for the lifetime ownership crowd - what do you do when Recruiter B finds Recruiter A's candidate somewhere new?  Outside of your ATS?  Say they dig up a great candidate through a referral or job posting?   Do they have to…"

Dan Ogden replied to Sarah Beddow's discussion 'Candidate Ownership - within a firm'
"1 year from last info post is what we use, but we are all a team - so if someone's on the database, we ask the person to update if we think it makes sense.  Oftentimes one of us will plainly state we are out of touch with the candidate and…"

"It is something we wrestle with constantly. Our policy is that it is theirs for life. If you live by the "but for" rule, if it wasn't for the original recruiter bringing them in and getting them in the database NO ONE would even be…"

"That sounds a bit better than lifetime ownership with a 2 week window. "

Sandra McCartt replied to Sarah Beddow's discussion 'Candidate Ownership - within a firm'
"The way it works in my office is if a candidate has been on file for 90 days without contact or send out they are considered unowned and whoever finds them in the system gets the referral. If the recruiter who initially entered them has been in…"

Jerry Albright replied to Sarah Beddow's discussion 'Candidate Ownership - within a firm'
"I'm now wondering - why 2 weeks?  While it may seem like a good idea for the recruiter who added the candidate - don't you think 2 weeks is a bit much?  Your competitors don't have a 2-week hands-off policy.....so while…"

"Well we did it ALMOST Sandra's way.  Make sure you're seated.  We set candidate ownership for life, but you have two weeks from the job order date to contact "your candidates" and submit them.  After that they are…"

Jerry Albright replied to Sarah Beddow's discussion 'Candidate Ownership - within a firm'
"I have always gone with "Do you have them on a sendout?"  If no - are they currently introduced to a client?   I have never supported the idea of "ownership" per se. "Ownership" leads to reasons…"

"Hi Sarah, We are a small business at the moment so have no issues with candidate ownership, however you have raised a question I have often thought of in terms of our own future growth. I have worked in companies that have done it all sorts of ways.…"
