Believe it or not, your business’s social media presence can help you, or hurt you, when it comes to finding qualified candidates. One of the first things staffing agencies tell their clients to do when staffing Delray Beach is to perfect their online social media presence. Similar to when a staffing agency presents a candidate over to you for review and you search for that person online, you better believe candidates are doing the exact same thing by often “Googling” your company to learn more and decide if they would like to interview or even work there. Social media can either make or break you here. Candidates are doing their research to learn more about the companies’ culture, and to read reviews from other employees on things like salary, benefits, paid time off, etc. The majority of candidates placed through staffing agencies report back that social media sites, such as LinkedIn, were great tools in their job searching and learning more about the potential company they were thinking of joining. Try to keep your social media channels up to date, posting often with relevant industry knowledge. It’s important to promote your brand and culture to show off what a successful company you are. Put yourselves in the candidates shoes – they want see a fun work environment when they research your company. It’s also great to collect testimonials, from current and past employees, or even clients you have worked with that can rave about your business. Empower your staff to brag about the great experiences they have had working at your company and let them act as your brand ambassadors. It’s important to put these testimonials on your website, or sites like Glass Door, if possible. Your business’s social media presence can help both you and your executive recruiter in South Florida find the next perfect fit.
