Here’s a fun fact, 52% of hires come from internal sources such as existing talent communities, CRM data, and referrals according to SilkRoad’s “Sources of Hire 2018” report. These types of hires tend to be less expensive and include better retention rates because the candidates are already aware of your brand.
So why do companies put most of their energy and resources into the least effective method of sourcing? Because until recently there hasn’t been an easy way to attract and keep candidates engaged over a long period of time. Potential candidates come to your company through a wide range of avenues. Top talent from your corporate career page, alumni, silver-medal candidates, former and current contractors, retirees, and freelancers, are a goldmine of talent just waiting for a great job. Engaging with top talent has never been easier and more effective.
We have an easy way to build and engage these pools of talent so that they are aware of upcoming opportunities and learn about your company’s values and culture.
