Bottlenecks are the enemy of any hiring process. They are spots of inefficiency that kill the momentum you worked so hard to build into human resources.
The bottlenecks in your hiring process can often feel entrenched, having existed at your organization for as long as anyone can remember. But, bottlenecks should never be accepted as part of standard operating procedure. You can and should wipe these time-wasting, energy-draining, morale-depleting sources of congestion from your hiring process.
