Social recruitment is the process of recruiting candidates through social media platforms, like Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, and other websites, including online forums leveraging the power of digital marketing.
Social recruiting is also referred to as social media recruiting, social hiring and social recruitment.
Social recruitment enables organizations to reach passive candidates, gather more referrals, have better targeting abilities with desired candidates, showcase your organizational culture, and save money.
Social recruitment works because it allows us to operate in an area where workers spend a considerable amount of their time - on social media.
1. 73% of millennials found their last job through a social media site.
Millennials and Gen-Z’s have an intrinsic relationship with technology and are the first generations to be digital natives. Now, these two are the two largest job seeker group and are highly engaged on social media. Naturally, these demographics have a much higher conversion rate for social recruiting than any other groups.
2. #PassiveCandidates make up about 70%-75% of the workforce.
Passive candidates are not actively looking for a new opportunity but will consider a job switch if the role meets their career goals. Through social media recruiting, businesses can engage with this candidate pool and forge a relationship that can potentially turn into a hire.
3. Research on social recruitment has proven that it reduces the overall cost of recruitment by up to 25%.
Once the roles that you are recruiting for are agreed on, our team create your tailored marketing advert in-house and share across our social media platforms, targeting a selective audience. We advertise our roles across platforms like Indeed, Facebook, Instagram and our own website.
The applications we receive are then segmented, removing the time and energy spent scrolling through CV's. This process increases the speed and most importantly the cost of recruitment. Based on the results of the segmenting processes here, we move candidates that we feel have potential forward into the next step of the process.
At this stage, our human interaction process begins. Our team screen and qualify candidates to ensure we provide your business with the right person, first time around! We develop and maintain relationships with our candidates, communicating with them across various channels. Millennials and Gen-Z’s are digital natives and are more accustomed to digital communication i.e., voice notes, video calls, instant messaging etc. than traditional forms of communicating. By engaging with candidates in these ways, we develop relationships with them and ensure that they are fully committed and fully prepared for interview. We commit that over 90% of our candidates will show up to their interview and that 80% of our interviews will result in hire.
Following on from feedback after interviews have taken place, for candidates that are successful in their interviews, we will check the candidates’ references, regret and offer candidates in-line with our customers’ process. We manage the relationship with the candidate until their start date, ensuring we maintain a lasting relationship.
At One Recruitment we fully believe in our process. By developing relationships with candidates through regular and consistent communication across various channels, we ensure that candidates our customers wish to pursue are fully committed to the hiring process and are fully prepared for interview.
Our processes ensure that you will have #NoMoreNoShows, and we fully commit to over 90% of our candidates attending their interviews.
With our human interaction and screening processes, we adopt a #QualityOverQuantity approach, and we fully commit to over 80% of our candidates being successful in their interviews and being offered the role.
Finally, our third commitment is 100% delivery on open roles. If you choose to recruit with us, we fully commit that we will find the right candidate to fill that role.
