Social recruitment – evolve or get left behind

Most people would agree that change is the only constant now. Darwin wrote, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, it is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
Millennials are now shaping the future workplace, having grown up with technology and being used to using it for communication, entertainment, education, and work.

Whilst social media is not a new phenomenon, within the recruitment arena it has brought positive change to both companies recruiting and candidates. For companies, it is now easier to get to know your candidate than ever before and for candidates it provides a platform to showcase your skill sets and interact with potential recruiters; making the entire application process easier and more engaging.

 A recent survey showed LinkedIn is still the most-used social media platform for recruiting, used by 94 percent of recruiters and employers.  In the 11 years since LinkedIn hit the recruiting scene, social media has changed the way employers and recruiter’s source talent.

 Macallam Interim understand the importance of giving clients and candidates choice using different social media platforms reducing both the time and cost of hire.  We simplify this process further by first identifying this talent and then connecting with this talent to suggest those interim candidates who best match against specific job criteria and therefore improving the overall quality of hire.

 Interim management is quite often about not only the quality of hire but the speed at which this can be delivered and adopting social recruiting methods we are able to build strong relationships and have a pre-vetted network of top calibre interim executives from which to call upon.
