How Group Delta stands out in a niche industry.
Competing for highly skilled technical people in a competitive niche industry, Group Delta needed a strategy that would help it stand out in a sea of larger companies. An employer branding campaign on LinkedIn helped the company attract more high-quality applicants. And LinkedIn Recruiter gave the recruitment team a tool to identify people who may be ready for a career change.

Fueling growth in a niche industry
Group Delta competes against much larger companies for the same highly skilled, highly educated technical professionals. These people tend to stay with employers for years, or even entire careers, and are difficult to recruit. As Group Delta prepared for planned growth, its small recruiting team needed a strategy for conveying company values, upcoming projects, and its career value proposition to industry professionals.
Building an employer brand
To attract specialized talent, Group Delta built its employer brand. New client projects and career opportunities are now promoted on its LinkedIn Career Page, and the company regularly engages with Career Page followers. Openings are posted on LinkedIn and the dynamic nature of posts—that follow members throughout their activities on LinkedIn—provides the company great exposure. And Group Delta relies on LinkedIn Recruiter to source candidates. Recruiter helps identify candidates who’ve been in their role for a while, signaling they may be interested in a change.
