Cost per applicant benchmarks are a great way to understand how your paid media is performing when you are putting dollars behind job postings. The folks at Appcast (the company that recently talked about “pane view” data) released a report detailing these benchmarks, along with some of the contributing factors to lowering your cost per application (and thus cost per hire).
There may be a disconnect between candidates and employers, an incongruence in where candidates and employers spend time searching each other. This is quite a surprise in the age of information and transparency.
The candidate experience can be greatly enhanced through embed codes that pull in unique content and tools like chatbots, Spotify playlists, Instagram feeds, and more. In fact, you almost certainly already have an embed code live on your career site now which pulls in the jobs from your ATS.
Transparency matters to your employer brand. The reputation of your organization as an employer is your employer brand. The difference between an empty nest and a flow of talented candidates also depends on how strong your employer brand is.
Every business enters the battle for top talent, whether you are fighting to recruit recent grads or top senior management. It’s not easy for anyone when trends are showing widespread talent and skill shortages across generations and around the globe. Employees clearly have the luxury of mobility and choice. In this arena, how do you win the best?
Automation has completely transformed the face of recruitment. The advent of artificial intelligence is changing the process of hiring candidates. Today’s recruiting software has simplified some of the most time-consuming aspects of talent acquisition, and increasingly is incorporating analytics that can make predictions about candidate fit and quality.
What your employees think, feel and say about your company can have great impact on your overall consumer brand, marketing efforts and profitability. What they share about your culture and career opportunities can significantly increase the likelihood of you achieving your business objectives. In HR terms, this “sharing” is a large component of your talent brand — the fulfillment of the promise of your company’s culture and employee experience. It is informed by every interaction with the company, from pre-employment vetting to post-employment separations. According to LinkedIn, 2017’s top employers included Amazon, Facebook and Apple. It’s no surprise that these highly in demand companies are among the top 10 most valuable brands in the world.
It’s obvious that most recruiters and sourcers have a love affair with sourcing tools. There has been a high demand for sourcing tools and extensions. SourceCon is pleased to partner with the Dean Da Costa, the human encyclopedia for all things “tool-related,” to produce a series of e-books into the wonderful world of Chrome extensions.
