Social Media Transforming the Recruitment Software Industry, According to Rolepoint This Week

Share Article

Social media platforms are so prevalent in the recruitment process that the recruitment software tool, RolePoint, is set to become an essential part of modern day hiring.

Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are profoundly changing the way companies recruit by providing an easy method to identify and get in touch with passive job seekers that they previously couldn’t have considered earlier, according to RolePoint, a social recruitment software firm. Currently based in San Francisco, they have grown rapidly in the past 12 months through their pioneering approach to developing social recruiting software.

By combining employee referrals and modern social media tools, RolePoint say that companies can dramatically improve the quality of the employees they hire by reaching out to passive candidates on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

Until the past few years, effectively implementing an employee referral program into a corporate recruitment strategy was significantly more time consuming. Industry leaders are now increasingly certain that RolePoint’s software reduces the transaction costs of hiring while providing measurable analytics that help with the tracking and assessment process. Additionally they say that their software allows for recruiters to automatically post to job vacancies and announcements on social sites and tap into employees’ social networks to find the best potential candidates, making the whole process both cheaper and faster while improve the overall quality of hires.

These clear and demonstrable benefits were highlighted in a corporate whitepaper titled ‘The Social Referral’ published by RolePoint last month that was written and researched by leading recruitment industry thought leader, Bill Boorman. It details the clear advantages of implementing an employee referral program through its leading research and statistical figures that demonstrate the better quality of candidates hired through a combination of employee referrals and social recruiting software.

RolePoint’s innovative approach that is shaking up the recruitment industry has seen them contribute articles in leading online publications such as the Huffington Post and most recently Mashable, considered to be the leading social media blog. In the coming months, it is expected that more large companies will sign up to their services in order to adopt modern methods of recruitment that harness the power of social media platforms.
