For most organizations, recruiting top talent is no piece of cake, but for the high-volume recruiters, it’s even more daunting. Consider that the average job posting garners 50 applicants, while in high-volume recruitment, job postings draw 250 applicants (source: Jobvite). What resources can you use to give you a leg up on your substantial task? We have a few insights to share:

Leverage your brand

“Your brand is the single most important investment you can make in your business.” (Steve Forbes) The same holds true when it comes to your investment in recruitment branding.

  • Promote your employment brand, relentlessly on all communications, including social: Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Share both personal and professional experiences. It’s what connects us to our world.
  • Give people a reason to connect with your employment brand through all of your media channels—and they’ll share your organic, clever content with their friends and colleagues.
  • Be sure to promote your organization’s unique employment value proposition at every touchpoint with consistency in style, tone and messaging.

LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD: A Q&A WITH NAS CEO, PHIL RIDOLFI

As we end 2018 and look ahead to 2019, we decided to get some thoughts from NAS Recruitment Innovation’s CEO, Phil Ridolfi. In the following Q&A, he reflects on the year that is ending and talks about what trends he expects for the coming year.

What is your big-picture summary of what has happened in recruiting and talent management over the past year and what are some of the challenges you’ve seen across our client base?

The biggest thing that has happened is that the demand for candidates now exceeds the supply. This trend has been growing over the last few years, but this year, it hit an inflection point where there are a lot of open positions and fewer and fewer candidates.

One of the biggest challenges our clients face is the tendency to feel that they need to change their ATS or other HR-related system because they are not 100% satisfied. In many cases, I think they would be better off staying where they are, and make sure they are working with an agency, like NAS, who has their best interests in mind and works with them to provide ways to improve their recruitment process. Changing systems is extremely time consuming and often results in minor improvements.

Programmatic Power Plays

We’ve been telling you about the power of programmatic advertising and how it can transform your media purchasing in some pretty dramatic ways. As more and more clients adopt this approach, success stories begin to emerge. We thought it might help to highlight a few case studies from our clients that provide insight into how programmatic advertising works – and get you thinking about how it might help you, too!

Case file #1: Rethinking the automatic contract renewal
Our healthcare client had been locked into purchasing contracts on an annual basis with certain media partners. We ran a trial of NAS MediaPro for three months, just prior to their annual renewal of a large contract. Based on results from the campaigns, we made the decision to NOT renew that annual contract, but to still include that site as a vendor through programmatic purchasing. The client was saved from a dreaded annual commitment and the difficult process of forecasting the exact number of postings to buy. Yet, they are still able to leverage the site at competitive pricing and get great results from it on an as-needed basis.
