Unveiling the Secret of a Hiring Manager’s Work-Life Balance

Can hiring managers do the work-life balance well?
Is a hiring manager a Superhero?

Hiring Manager’s Work-Life Balance: Debunking the Superhero Myth

Yesterday’s work life balance theories are not keeping pace with the velocity of today’s disruptive marketplace. Earlier, most of the Chief Human Resources Officers in larger workforce, spent decades trying to identify the mythical “superhero hiring leader”. They would have liked to clone such a ‘superhero’, who happens to know the zen of balancing it all with his cape. But it turns out, there is no such thing. As of now, a hiring manager’s work-life balance seems like a distant dream. Millennial hiring managers are seeking new recruitment technologies for the age of agility. They would like to redesign the purpose of recruiting to drive organization’s success.

Today’s recruiting leaders face a virtually unprecedented variety of challenge. It ranges from harvesting the right talent, who will skyrocket the business in short span of time, to boosting the productivity of workforce. It also involves redefining the purpose of work for the intrapreneurial new hires, to creating the next wave of disruptive innovation in digital recruiting. Add to that, winning the war of talent deficit or working through the complexity of engaging with the new generation talent. But in the midst of it all, the most important being managing their work life balance like a pro.

Each of these unique challenges require hiring managers to rethink a new approach – Thrive to become the zen master of recruiting world.

Here are some secrets that may help hiring managers to solve the work-life balance puzzle.

1. Embrace the idea of talent diversity

Be open to diverse talent in your HR function

Instead of trying to clone an army of identical performing recruiters, embrace the idea of talent diversity in HR function. One of the things that makes the organization a great place for recruitment function is the idea of being ‘teamed up with different shaped cookie cutter. So, strive to create a pool of HR talent who have different skills, styles, and experiences. Then, work hard to assign your team to leadership positions that fit their unique capabilities, to solve the above mentioned challenges.

2. Be immune to instant obsolescence

Today, disruptive innovation is the rule of the recruiting game, not an exception. Virtually, any company could be weeks or months away from facing potential breakthroughs. At the same time, a new technology in the competitive market could make its entire business obsolete. Leadership styles in recruitment HR that worked well in the past, may not be good enough to cope with the dynamic environment of ‘now’. Hence, be immune to instant obsolescence, by adapting new technology to recruit better. Look for technology that can operate across different hiring environments. The kind which helps you focus on your work life balance and addresses the unexpected gap of a talent deficit.

3. Pursue multiple vision in leadership

Hiring Managers, today, must create a leadership environment where recruiters can be ‘creatively abrasive’. By which meaning, standing up for what they believe in and create a purpose for their role. It would also mean to openly challenge each other when necessary, without pouting or shutting down, if they happen to lose to address the war of talent. Otherwise, pursuing a singular vision in leadership destroys the ability to attain sustainable growth in your career and family life.

4. Learn to Unplug

Some campus hiring managers find it difficult to cope up with increased responsibility of working out a candidate process. Sometimes, they miss the privileges that a 9-to-5 work hour can provide. Many campus hiring managers feel pressured, to be available anytime and anywhere. Therefore, hiring managers need to learn how to connect and disconnect, a new skill for mastering the work-life balance art.

5. Relinquish Control

Relinquish authority and focus on achieving personal goals
Move away from exercising control to rather negotiable efforts

Informal strategies are often more effective than micromanaging day-to-day work. Therefore, set clear expectations about what work must be done and by when. Also, allow your team to negotiate on how they can most effectively meet the collective work goals, so that you have time to fulfill your personal needs.
