Plugging Into Talent Will Fry Your Mind!
Now more than ever the ability to develop and deliver an effective recruitment strategy is imperative. Candidate lifestyles have changed dramatically over recent years and many companies are still behaving as though it is 1985. Candidates and people in general are on the go more than ever and using technology in ways we never imagined. Social relevance, personalized experiences and transparency in activities and communication are prevalent in this wireless inter-collaborated world we now live in. The days of help wanted signs and newspaper job ads has evolved and now people with media power and large advertising budgets are competing against no or low cost methods like a blog or webcam to post information. The mindset of recruiting departments needs to move from spending money, time and resources developing processes and tools to screen people OUT and begin to embrace the tools of today and focus more on what a company’s recruiting message should be to invite the right type of profiles IN.

Positive Correlation: Social Media Engagement & Employer Brand
A positive correlation exists between the level of social media engagement and employer brand strength. Social media is instantly global and can reach specific audiences faster than a flip of a light switch. Customers make buying decisions using emotions, which is now heavily influenced by social media networks. It does not matter if you're a prospective customer of a physical product like a laptop or a prospective employee (also customer) of a company. Social media engagement has the same effects of how one feels about a respective organization as a whole - it's products, its services, its employees, its culture and so forth.
