About LinkedIn Recruiter Index

LinkedIn's Top Social Recruiters showcases the most effective recruiters who have been successful at embracing social recruiting. We ranked talent acquisition professionals based on their effectiveness of attracting and hiring quality talent using LinkedIn. This list was compiled based on each LinkedIn Recruiter user's LinkedIn Recruiter Index (LRI).

LRI quantifies a recruiter’s effectiveness at using LinkedIn Recruiter by measuring four essential criteria:

Build: Establishing a professional presence on LinkedIn with a complete profile

Find: Efficiently identifying qualified candidates using search and research tools 

Engage: Engaging candidates with personalised conversations 

Manage: Collaborating and organising your work to maximise team effectiveness and efficiency 



  • Time period used to calculate LRI: June 2015 – Nov 2015
  • Only one recruiter from an organisation in each country is featured in the list based on the highest LRI score
