A candidate roundup meeting is held at the end of a structured hiring process so that you can make a hiring decision based on the process you just completed. A successful candidate roundup should accomplish three things:
- Decision on who you will extend an offer to
- Create a shortlist of actions required to make an offer
- Review the hiring process your team has just finished and learn how you can improve for next time.
The candidate roundup meeting provides a space for your hiring team to come together and systematically review the data gathered from the interview process and make a hiring decision. Prior to this meeting, confirm that all interviewer feedback is complete.
When evaluating candidates, stick to the scorecard attributes rather than relying on summations or generalizations.
