If you are the typical under-resourced HR manager wearing multiple
hats, social recruiting offers a powerful alternative and a way to
simplify your life. Social recruiting allows you to tap into active
and passive pools of talent that just aren¹t available through
traditional recruitment methods.
An easier way to reach the top talent
A recent study found 75%* of working professionals qualify as passive
candidates. They won’t be answering job adverts, but they are likely
to be on social media. Social platforms like LinkedIn can help you
find and talk to them.
The power of attraction
Social recruitment will require you to wear a marketer and brand
ambassador hat, because your ultimate goal is to have the best talent
approach you, rather than the other way around. Building a compelling
‘talent brand’ will establish your company as an irresistible employer
in the minds of your target candidates.
