Talent teams

Optimize your hiring for quality and cost.

Source from your Swarm.

"We can create a shortlist of warm, qualified profiles in minutes. This is the most efficient way to run recruiting, period!"

Bonus point: Improve internal mobility.

According to a Gartner survey of 3,000 candidates conducted in June 2021, only 33% of candidates who sought out a new job in the past 12 months searched internally within their organization first. By sharing your Swarm across employees, they can see and access opportunities to apply themselves or make referrals. Employees seeking new opportunities can also be more visible to your recruiting team, shortening to path and time to fill roles and retain talent.

How does network recruiting compare to inbound and outbound recruiting?

In recent years, while businesses have changed, the way we recruit has remained the same in many ways. Many businesses still build their hiring process around old methods — building a funnel of candidates and aiming to connect with as many people as possible — with the help of marketing technology and digital advertising techniques. These approaches are well-established but they also have many drawbacks, like higher costs and lower efficiency.
Meanwhile, competition for talent has been on the rise. In this new business landscape, we need new recruiting strategies. Network recruiting is of the newest and most exciting developments — a new way of organizing your recruitment efforts that draws on the network of people around you instead of traditional outbound or inbound recruiting.
