Today, social media not only affects the majority of our personal lives, but also transforms ways to conduct business.
Now the age-old problem of finding new talent has changed. It is been brought into a new, exciting time through social media recruitment.
Every business, no matter what size, can benefit from social media recruitment.
It is something no business should avoid, especially if they want to appear in touch with today’s changing workplace.
A 2010 study 14 percent of companies did not use social media recruitment.
They are not aware of how to start with social media; do not think they have the necessary resources; can’t do it effectively or see it as not worth their time. It could be that they have not seen what social media recruitment can do for them.
Some significant benefits social media recruitment can provide your business immediately:
With the potential to reach millions of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest users, social media increases the visibility of your company, as well as the jobs. This increased range will have jobs noticed by a huge number of qualified candidates.
In addition, it will show the online community that the company is keeping with current trends.
Compared to traditional job advertisements, social media recruitment is a low-cost alternative. Money previously set aside for traditional hiring can contribute towards social media recruitment, giving you more “bang for your buck.”
