Hiring Super Stars Using Data

staffing recruiting

Data can make or break your firm’s ability to acquire and retain talented people. 85% of candidates are diligent, employed professionals that are making an impact for your competitors and too busy being successful to respond to online ads posted by the majority of staffing agencies and recruiting agencies. These are the passive candidates. And to recruit them- a company’s incentive package needs to be big enough to pull them away from their current jobs.

Recruitment Intelligence™ allows companies to do this by giving them a report that focuses heavily on the passive candidates in the market. Data including salaries your competitors are paying its employees, bonuses and benefits to give you a real-time market view. Accessibility to this data provides a competitive advantage. In the recruitment marketplace, it’s true that “knowledge is power.”

Traditional recruitment agency methods usually just involve placing jobs ads on Monster® and Indeed®. This provides no insight into the candidate’s background beyond what the candidate includes in their resumes. With Recruitment Intelligence™, a more in-depth profile is created.

Recruitment Intelligence™ takes the guess-work out of hiring. Recruitment Intelligence™ develops a “talent map” using both internet searches and a hands-on approach to collect contact information and profiles of candidates. Recruitment Intelligence™ reaches out to everyone who fits the jobs description of an assignment and works with social media sites like Linkedin. They also have an understanding of how to get candidates to tell them about themselves during an interview, including their skills, experience and capabilities. Recruitment Intelligence™ builds a profile on each and analyzes their potential.

One of the newest trends in the recruiting industry is video-based interviews. Companies say online video interviews save them time by providing a preview of the candidate’s intangible skills: personality, communication and presentation style. Video interviews provide all the features of face-to-face communication. Companies can do preliminary screening using video interviews before dedicating their hiring manager’s time to meet candidates face-to-face. Recruitment Intelligence™ is one of the first staffing agencies and recruiting agencies to develop this technology and employ it all their recruiting efforts.
