Another Social Recruiting Reality Check


By Kevin W. Grossman, TAS, HCS on LinkedIn

Do your organization’s recruitment marketing and social recruiting strategies deliver the best candidate experience? The latest Talent Board North American candidate experience research report can help you determine the answer.

It was as if the very social recruiting waters parted for employers, HR professionals and recruiters last June when LinkedIn published this astonishing statistic: “A massive 90% of global professionals are interested in hearing about new job opportunities.”

People burst into Snoopy dances in their offices. Tears of joy were shed. And it’s no wonder. This revelation meant that companies have the potential to reach a historically large and receptive talent pool. But this joy was short-lived. A cold tsunami of reality came crashing down on them. Most organizations simply don’t know how to effectively leverage and target this tremendous opportunity. They struggle to identify and understand the best practices, platforms and processes for attracting the right talent and delivering an amazing candidate experience.

Well, I’ve got great news. Those challenges just got a whole lot easier to solve thanks to the Talent Board’s 2016 North American Candidate Experience Research Report. It offers a ton of fresh insights and valuable data gathered directly from more than 240 employers who put their recruiting practices under the microscope and 183,000 job seekers who shared their real-life candidate experiences, job search preferences and more. We’re talking about the largest, most reliable data set of its kind!

This report is a must-read for everyone interested in raising the bar on their talent strategy, employer brand and candidate experience in North America and even beyond. And you can get your copy just by clicking the link above…
