How the Internet Has Changed the Recruitment
There’s a reason it’s called the
Information Age. The internet has truly changed the way that we gather,
process, and utilize information, especially during the recruitment process!
Since the business world changes so quickly, it’s important for our recruitment
efforts to keep pace.
At StellarHire Partners, we use technology to proactively and effectively propel talent
through the pipelines to fulfill company needs. We’ve found that the biggest
benefit of the internet is what we call “big data.” These analytics allow us to
quickly see if our efforts are paying off and what sites we should be investing
our efforts in.
For instance, data can show us
talent acquisition statistics for LinkedIn versus CareerBuilder. Both are fine
sites, of course, but does one work for our particular company better than the
other? Big data and analytics allow us to determine this.
Harnessing big data is the easy
part. Implementing it to acquire new talent is the challenge that many
businesses face. To make the most of your big data:

Partners, we’ve determined that aside
from recruiting the right people, keeping them happy and motivated is a
challenge all employers face. Fortunately, this challenge doesn’t have to be a
There are three major components
to consider while motivating your team to always provide quality services.
Financial incentive is the first
and most obvious incentive. Find a way to connect tangible results with
financial rewards. Whether it’s a certain pay scale or bonuses, employees are
more likely to work hard to reach a financial goal. Just like anything else,
however, financial incentives only go so far.
Good management motivates
employees. While micromanagement offers quick, short-term results, it stresses
and undermines your team. Instead, fight for their loyalty by truly getting to
know employees on a personal basis. This also allows you to learn everyone’s
strengths and weaknesses, which you can use while managing the team.
People want to feel like they’re
part of a team in the workplace. By encouraging camaraderie, you’re motivating
employees to support each other. Stronger individual performances mean a
stronger team performance, which means a stronger business!
