Decentralized Human Resources Management

What is Decentralized Human Resources Management?

Decentralized Human Resources Management means that key HR functions are delegated to individual departments, units, or locations as opposed to being handled by one corporate HR department.

For example, a restaurant franchise location handles its own hiring, training, payroll, and team organization at that location. The location acts as its own HR management team, and therefore, is decentralized.

A Decentralized Hiring Process is when hiring is handled by individual teams and overseen by a larger HR department.

ApplicantPro can help you run a decentralized hiring process!

With ApplicantPro, running a decentralized hiring process is a walk in the park. Unlimited logins allows for hiring managers to collaborate with individual team members who have a say in the overall hiring decision. All parties can view, rate, and choose their top candidates and contribute to the overall hiring decision, making for a much smoother hiring process.

For example, if the sales team is looking to hire a new sales manager, they would handle all interviews, selection, and training for their new sales manager. HR could still have a hand in the employee onboarding process.

With a decentralized hiring process, teams are more likely to be happy with their new team members than if all new hires were chosen by HR alone.
