8 Strategic Steps to Successful Volume Recruitment [Infographic]

A major challenge faced by recruiters is volume recruitment. Volume recruitment also goes by such labels as bulk recruitment, ramp-up recruitment, or seasonal recruitment. All these clearly suggest that it’s all about recruiting in high volumes – a good range would be anything between 5 and 500-plus – especially during busy seasons within a particular industry.

A retail store, for example, will need more support staff around the holidays compared with other months of the year. On exceptionally good business days (read: an influx of new clients or an expansion in the works), those in the BPO or call center industry would also hold on-site or in-house recruitment to meet their demand for new or more customer service agents.

Not to be mistaken as a strategy to simply hit numbers for the HR team, volume recruitment should maintain standards in the quality of hires as well. The infographic below presents an overview of what steps you need to take to help you become effective when hiring quality people en masse.


Volume recruitment need not become an unnecessary burden to your already far-reaching functions in HR. As long as you have a clear vision, an executable plan, and people and technology resources, you’ll be ready and able to launch a successful campaign.

And with the right recruitment partner, you can achieve your objective of mass hiring of quality candidates. ThisWayGlobal is a recruitment company that takes pride in its machine learning algorithms as they help clients with large volumes of recruiting.
