Fishing from the Same Pond Is a Thing of the Past for Recruiters

Casting for Candidates-1

A fiercely competitive and thinning labor pool is forcing organizations to find creative recruiting techniques to locate, recruit, and retain the best possible talent for vacant positions. Employers need to move smartly and engage quickly to recruit and retain the best talent. In this new era of recruiting, fishing in the same overcrowded pond isn't going to cut it.

"For all those millions and billions of people on social networks, there are millions more who you will never find if your recruitment strategy is to only post jobs on your career site, social networks and source on the internet," said Tim Sackett, SHRM-SCP, president of HRU Technical Resources, an engineering and design staffing firm based in Lansing, Mich. He is also the author of The Talent Fix: A Leader's Guide to Recruiting Great Talent (SHRM, 2018.)

Although recruiting is undoubtedly now a universal challenge, with the right tools and strategy, recruiting successfully in a tight labor market is entirely possible. Incorporating AI-Powered Talent Intelligence can help improve recruiting efficiency and effectiveness and bring greater insight into recruiting and hiring decisions. An AI-Powered Talent Intelligence platform like ENGAGE provides employers with remarkable insight to find, recruit, and retain talent.
