  3. 3. A strategic approach to staffing The staffing industry is evolving. Social networking is transforming recruiting methods, and altering the behaviour of candidates and recruiters alike. Candidates have more career choices, and clients have more channels to research potential partners. Both groups are making decisions based on their networks’ recommendations and the information they find online. And increasingly, top talent doesn’t even enter the marketplace. Passive candidates are recruited from one role to another without actively searching for their next position. Staffing agencies now need to act more like marketers to connect directly with the best candidates before their competitors do. This means actively listening, participating and engaging with targeted groups and communities, developing strong talent brands and building talent pipelines. How can you secure top talent quickly and effectively for your clients in this new recruiting landscape? Here are five easy steps to enhance your staffing strategy and become a stronger partner for your clients. LinkedIn Talent Solutions: Five must-follow steps for enhancing your staffing strategies 3
  4. 4. 75% "PASSIVE" OF THAT 75% 60% OPEN TO APPROACH 15% COMPLETELY SATISFIED 1. Source using social recruiting Most professionals no longer need to actively job-seek and are connected via social media. They have extensive professional networks, change roles more often and have more channels available to find new jobs. It’s also likely they’re being targeted by your competitors, and can choose from multiple opportunities. The good news is your talent pool has expanded, and your ability to reach and engage that pool has improved. You just need to be proactive, using the social tools at your fingertips to communicate the right content, to the right audience, at the right time. Each person you connect with is also likely to be connected to many others, so social recruiting is an essential tool for tapping into quality talent pools and locating hard-to-find talent. Online professional social networks have now overtaken traditional job boards as the primary source of quality hires for staffing agency across the world. 75% of global candidates regard themselves as "passive" – they’re not actively searching for work. But a full 60% are open to being approached – only 15% are completely satisfied in their roles and don't want to move. But to engage with those open to opportunities, you’ll have to reach out to them first.

  5. 5. 2. Supercharge your talent brand If you want to actively engage with skilled professionals, you need to think and act like a marketer and build a strong talent brand via content marketing. If you don’t, you risk getting a cold response when you reach out. If, however, you have built your reputation as a relevant and appropriate partner, your candidate will be more likely to engage. A strong talent brand can also help attract new clients to your agency, as well as new talent recruitment specialists to work for you. People who already follow you on LinkedIn are 95% more likely to respond to an InMail, and nearly 50% of people are more likely to buy from a company they engage with on LinkedIn.

  6. 6. 3. Build a stunning talent pipeline Speed is more critical than ever in recruitment today. Clients have tight deadlines and budgets. Having a warm talent pipeline of quality professionals is key. Nearly 80% of LinkedIn members are interested in career opportunities from companies they follow, so engage with them and grow your followers. Engaged followers are three times more likely to apply for one of your jobs than a non-follower. You also need to supply candidates from a variety of professions and geographical regions. The advantage of online social networks is that they’re borderless. People stay connected to former colleagues when they move companies and even countries. Instead of maintaining records manually, you can use tools such as Talent Pipeline in LinkedIn Recruiter to aggregate, track, contact and nurture talent leads. FOLLOWERS ARE 3xMORE LIKELY TO APPLY FOR ONE OF YOUR JOBS ENGAGED TIP: Imagine having a pool of warm candidates at your fingertips for every hard-to-hire role. Make it happen with these 12 tips.

  7. 7. 4. Engage your talent with compelling content Target your status updates to specific followers using criteria such as: With Sponsored Updates, you can target people outside your network – and they don’t have to be a follower of your Company Page to see it. There is strong engagement on weekends, so it’s worth considering an always-on approach. Relevant and valuable content is key if you want people to notice and engage you. People come to sites such as LinkedIn to learn more about their industry and its issues, and they can be very receptive to the right material. Great content is also more likely to be shared by your followers among their own networks, amplifying and extending your reach to not only candidates, but potential clients too. Status updates with a link can drive twice the engagement. Including a YouTube video results in a 75% higher share rate. Posts with an image generally enjoy a 98% higher comment rate. Targeted content can achieve a 400% increase in candidate conversions.

The Talent Brand Index measures how well you’re reaching and engaging professionals with your social recruitment strategy. You can monitor your score and see how it rises against your peers. You can also measure your social recruitment strategy on LinkedIn by tracking your Talent Brand Index score over time, against competitors, across geographies and across functions. 5.

Some key indicators of success are: In-house metrics • Your number of successful placements increases. • The time taken to fill positions reduces. Online metrics • You are growing your number of followers. • Traffic to your content increases. • Response rates to your job ads go up. "If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it."
