Eany, Meany, Miney, Moe, which staffing Model should we use!!
Staffing models, wow there are a lot of them, or so you think. The reality is there are only a few.
Full service-you have a Staffing Professional (SP) or Recruiter doing A-Z, the whole Staffing Lifecycle (SLC).
Hunter-Gatherer-basically you split up the full lifecycle into the hunter or finder-sourcer who may or may not screen and the gatherer-SP who does all the rest once the hunter has handed it off.
Committee-basically, you use several different people, each performing a different part of the SLC to get the job does. This model means breaking the SLC down to at least three roles. Usually the breaks are sourcer, interviewer/screener, and presenter. The sourcer finds the candidates; the interviewer/screener interviews them prior to presentation to client. The presenter presents them to the client and performs the rest of the SLC. This model goes after the assumption if your company has say; a 4–1 interview to offer ratio, and a 4–1 screener to presenter ratio, and a 4–1 sourced to screened ratio, this means your screener needs to screen 16 candidates to get 4 interviewable candidates, and that means your sourcer need to find 64 sourced candidates. Therefore, you can imagine why they would break this down. Of course, you can break the SLC down to even more than three but you get the idea.
This is really it, every model you have seen, heard about or worked within is either one of these or a variation of one of these. The first two are the most common.
