FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With its new Talent Communities solution, which attracts talent through highly interactive, online social communities, SourceRight Solutions is helping companies foster a ready-made talent pipeline of candidates that can speed time-to-hire and improve the overall quality of new hires.
Fully configurable and consistent with the customer's brand, Talent Communities from SourceRight Solutions provide companies with a private, web-based social network that is customized to meet the exclusive needs of the customer. Talent Communities combine the value of social networks, media platforms, brand-building sites and multiple recruitment channels into one cutting-edge talent acquisition tool. With a robust menu of customizable features and functions, the user selects the specific requirements for the site – how participants will interact, who can join, how they can join, and what they can do after they have joined. A SourceRight community manager then is responsible for administering the site with insight and guidance from the customer.
"Right now, most companies approach online social networking with disparate, distinct sites and services – separate Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts that hopefully expand the reach of their talent pool. Our new Talent Communities offering not only works in conjunction with traditional social media sites, but it also provides a dynamic, interactive engagement platform to help companies stay connected with the talent they want and need – and foster candidate familiarity with the client's organization," stated Karen Turner, vice president of strategic talent optimization. "With these single-focused, client-branded talent communities, the quality of a company's interaction with candidates is transformed. Relationships are created and developed that are far more robust than those created by generic social networks."
Giving companies a significant edge over their competition, SourceRight's Talent Communities optimize candidate quality, improve time to hire, and deliver access to the best people, processes, and technology available today. The solution is designed to enhance recruitment and hiring processes through such features as:
- Engaging community members with message boards, videos, chat, IM, videoconferencing, event calendars, and even private libraries filled with PDFs, documents, and videos.
- Accelerating the interview process with recordable videoconferencing that can be sent to engagement managers along with candidates' personalized profile pages.
- Creating an on-demand specialized talent pool by connecting qualified and interested candidates through live job feeds
- Promoting the organization's culture and employment value proposition through the broadcast of company news, facilitated forums and networking groups, and meaningful dialogues between candidates and recruiters.
With 76% of companies recently surveyed by Bersin & Associates indicating that engaging former employees, alumni, and retirees is important, SourceRight also has created the Alumni Talent Community to leverage the best of social media technologies and enable companies to foster alumni referrals and potentially rehire top talent who are able to ramp up quickly to high productivity. The Alumni Talent Community features an easy-to-use dashboard with capabilities such as searchable jobs, individual alumni profiles, and document management, calendars, and notes tools.
