Extends an Organization’s Referral Network – With Peopleclick Reach, a job posting listed on an organization’s career site can be forwarded to a network of friends with just a few clicks, making it easy for employees and others to refer their friends to an organization. A majority of organizations are finding new hires by employee referrals, and these are almost always from connections made through online networks.
Extends an Organization’s Employer Brand – By having a corporate presence on networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, an organization will be reaching potential candidates where they are spending much of their time. Peopleclick Reach offers clients training and a best-practice approach to creating their own company profile on their chosen social networking sites. When a company’s networking site is interesting and valuable, visitors are more likely to share the page with their friends, which easily extends the reach of an organization’s employer brand.
Training and Consultation – Since there are many ways to integrate social networking into an organization’s sourcing strategy, it helps tremendously to have training and consultation included. Peopleclick Reach includes training and consulting to help educate and assist an organization with employee adoption, while teaching team members how to measure their success using social networking technologies.
“Today, it is no surprise that social networking sites are significantly changing an organization’s recruitment strategy,” said Ginny Gomez, SVP of Product Management and Marketing at Peopleclick. “By embracing these technologies, an organization will be able to not only increase their sourcing strategy, but also deliver an engaging, positive brand experience and maximize their web presence. With guidance from the Peopleclick Research Institute (“PRI”), Peopleclick Reach provides comprehensive consultation services so that organizations can add social networking to their talent acquisition plan in a compliant manner.”
