It’s no secret that applicant tracking systems improve the hiring process. But what do you have to be aware of when you’re comparing systems? While doing research into each option you will be overloaded with features here and features there, but what about specific issues that users encounter on a regular basis?

If recruiters are pirates, then passive candidates are their buried treasure. Recruiters, and hiring managers alike, covet passive candidates because they are usually the most employable. According to LinkedIn, passive candidates make up 73% of the workforce. That’s a lot of gold! Recruiting passive candidates isn’t necessarily a secret either, with a lot of these candidates becoming numb to a lot of the outreach they receive.

52 days. That’s how long it takes, on average, to fill an open position in the US nowadays. Also, it will cost an average of just below $4,000 for each hire, according to recent research by Bersin by Deloitte. On top of that, while these spots go unfilled, it is affecting business objectives and the moral of those impacted by the open positions.

Is your company’s LinkedIn profile up to par? What about your Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ profiles? If not, your company could be losing ideal candidates to other businesses.

On July 5, 2015, the United States Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) celebrated winning the country’s third World Cup Championship title in an exhilarating redemption game against Japan.

It’s no secret that technology has irrevocably altered our lives. With technology, we are able to connect with others, increase efficiency, and largely make our lives easier. In general, people are pretty pleased with the presence of technology in their daily lives—in fact, studies have indicated that humans exhibit genuine feelings of love toward their smartphones, and there are more iPhones are sold daily than there are babies born worldwide.

Recruiters are always on the hunt for the best talent, and one of the trickiest parts of the process is connecting with quality candidates once you find them. If you’re still trying to attract candidates through traditional methods like email and text-based websites, you’re most likely losing top talent to your competition. Want to regain your competitive edge?

What does your office space look like? Perhaps it is a sea of cubicles joined together by a break room where employees enjoy coffee. Maybe there are multiple offices with open spaces for collaboration. Though these are fairly common work settings, neither of these scenes depicts what the workplace looks for approximately 3.3 million Americans. What does their workplace look like? Home.

As a recruiter, you spend your career trying to attract candidates to a company. As an HR professional, you work to retain the best employees in your company. What if you knew what prompted people to take new jobs and leave their current jobs behind? Luckily for you, LinkedIn is doing its best to answer these questions.

As a recruiter, your top concern is to fill positions with quality candidates—and to do it FAST. However, this has become an increasingly difficult feat to accomplish due to a widening skills gap and the heightened need for specialized employees.

It’s hard to believe, but 2015 is quickly coming to a close. I imagine you are all busy making plans for the coming year, as we are here at Leoforce—luckily, LinkedIn released their annual global recruiting trends report just in time to help us all solidify our plans. To generate the report, LinkedIn surveyed 3,894 talent acquisition decision makers across the globe, 55 percent of who manage small or mid-sized businesses (SMBs).

Less than one third of U.S. workers are engaged in their job at any given time of the year, but it is significantly harder to keep employees involved and motivated from Thanksgiving until the New Year. Companies across the country struggle to maintain productivity at the end of each year as many employees take the same days off or work remotely.
