Strengthen Your Talent Community With Personalization

Laura Yipit

Laura Rottingen is the Recruitment Manager at YipitData, which analyzes web data to provide KPI estimates and answer key questions for investors. She partners with Hiring Managers across all departments to help them optimize hiring processes and ensure high quality hires. Outside of work, she loves to read, cook and travel. Connect with her on LinkedIn.

Google “employer branding” and you’ll find an endless list of articles on the shift to a candidate-driven market and why it’s crucial to attracting top talent. What the articles won’t say: The impression you’re creating isn’t the end of the game. No amount of amazing marketing will make a product successful if the user experience doesn’t follow through. When I think about building a strong talent community, I think about personalizing the experience a potential candidate has with our interview process and within our company.

Using Content to Create an Engaging Candidate Experience and Strong Talent Community

Lauren Roberts Min

Lauren is the Director of Talent Acquisition at The Muse which means she gets to help people discover careers they love at a company that's changing the way companies hire and people find jobs. She started at The Muse in March 2015 when they were only 25 people and grew the team to over 130 Musers and counting. Lauren is passionate about the human side of recruiting and takes great care when partnering with both candidates and hiring managers to create positive experiences and build successful teams.

Your HR strategy should be about humans, not resources. It’s important to recruit them honestly, engage them like you would a friend, and build an emotional connection—the talent lifecycle is not a transaction. One way to do this is by using content to foster a great candidate experience that makes people feel valued and think well of your company, whether or not they get the job.

Using SEO Techniques to Optimize Job Descriptions

Brad Shorr

Brad Shorr is Director of Content Strategy at Straight North, one of the leading Internet marketing companies in Chicago that provides SEO, PPC and web design services. With more than 25 years of sales and marketing experience, Brad has been featured in leading online publications including Moz, American Marketing Association, and Entrepreneur.

Most companies post job openings on their website, where they describe the position and qualifications, and invite candidates to submit an application. This is a great recruiting tactic, but works even better when SEO techniques are applied to these pages. In doing so, job opening pages are more likely to:

  • Be found by job seekers using Google to search for employment

  • Be shared more on social media by people interested in helping members of their social network discover new opportunities

Building a Talent Community At Scale

Claire Priddy

Claire Priddy has been using Greenhouse to shape and and progress recruiting efforts since 2012. She loves leveraging technology and data in recruitment, but still prefers to build a pipeline through good, old-fashioned personal relationships. Claire is currently building the Engineering, IT, and Data Science teams at Carvana, an auto tech startup based out of Phoenix.

As a recruiter, I’ve heard all about the importance of networking; recruiters should be out socializing, handing out business cards, scheduling follow-up lunches, and building a network of professionals that can be called upon to fill future job openings. What if instead of building a network, recruiters built a talent community? What if our communities were comprised of small businesses, meetup groups, and local university students hungry for a taste of what thriving companies have to offer?

A stellar recruiter focuses on two things:

  • Reframing her role from hiring to relationship building

  • Building a community through authentic outreach

The average cost to hire per employee is at an all-time high—$4,129. Successful recruitment is more critical to companies’ bottom lines than ever. But on top of this, roughly a quarter of new hires won’t even make it to their one year anniversary at the company. While you need a strong talent acquisition strategy to hire the right candidates, it’s just as important to effectively onboard them, too.

Greenhouse and Quantum Workplace are dedicated to equipping companies with the tools they need to succeed at both hiring and onboarding. We recently collaborated with Quantum Workplace to create an eBook filled with advice on exactly how to do this, using data from nearly 400 HR and business leaders.
