Recruitment is a challenging industry at the best of times, but also one of the most rewarding.

The end of a normal year brings new challenges, when a lot of businesses and industries shut over the Christmas period. As this hasn’t been a normal year (to say the least), this could mean that there are less clients interested in filling roles or that your candidates are a little less responsive.

But don’t lose hope – although this year has been challenging enough, the issues you usually face over the holidays could actually be easier to overcome this year. Read More

Recruitment Strategies: Broaden Outreach to Passive Candidates

By | Candidate Experience, Recruitment, Training

Passive candidates, unlike active candidates, are typically less responsive because they are not actively looking for a job or career change.   

For recruiters, this means that top ‘passive’ talent is even harder to reach, which is especially challenging with unemployment at its lowest rate in years. Passive candidates are not always looking to make a change. But sometimes they are open to new (and better) opportunities that align with their skills and offer greater compensation or attractive benefits.

How can recruiters improve outreach to the most talented people?

millennials and texting, communications

Talk is Cheap. Communication’s Priceless.

By | Communications, Recruitment

Over the past few decades, communications technology has evolved rapidly, and we now depend on our mobile phones so much that we check them 55 times per day, averaging 20,000 times per year.

People are becoming accustomed to fast and easy responses to texts, emails and social media messaging. In fact, research by OpenMarket found that Millennials in particular are not very receptive to traditional communication methods and 75% prefer texting to calling. Meanwhile, only 24% of emails are being read at all and countless voicemails are deleted before being listened to.

Recruiters can embrace this opportunity and reach the top talent first by starting conversations and building relationships using the communication channels their candidates prefers. With a growing Millennial workforce, it’s key that recruiters embrace the mobile first behaviour that drives modern communication.

This is primarily because the various touch points within the recruitment business operate within separate silos. For instance, it is still rare to see Recruitment and Staffing professionals working from a single system that gives a unified view of a Candidate (emails, phone conversations, CV and Social Data). This in turn means that conversations that happen between a candidate or customer and their recruiter rarely make it to the management team who can effect impactful actions and improvements based directly on this real-time information.
