What is territory management?
A territory is the demarcation of the recruitment force structure by which candidates are grouped and shared with the recruitment people of an organization. Territories can be based on various factors such as geography, etc.
When your business is spread across regions and you have multiple office divisions, departments and numerous products/services, it is not an easy task to assign candidates to recruitment teams without proper planning. In some cases, it is equally complex to provide access only to selective accounts, for individuals from different teams to work together for a common recruitment objective.
Territory Management is a system by which candidates are grouped based on a defined set of criteria. This makes for easy sharing of candidates among different recruitment teams in your company. It ensures proper and effective usage of the recruitment force to maximize recruitment opportunities, provide excellent customer service and expand the existing customer relationships.
