Facebook is a Gold Mine For Companies Needing to Recruit At Scale

Over 2 billion people currently use Facebook across the globe (2018). That’s a massive group of people hanging out in the same place online. And they are digitally savvy people – so it makes sense for companies to tap into that amazing talent pool to find and nurture leads for the purpose of recruiting.

The iQor team needed to find better ways to fill positions in their global call centers, so they turned to the Work4Labs team for help. What they learned is that Facebook Lead Ads enable them to apply a digital marketing approach of lead – nurture – convert to their social recruiting, with great success.

What you’ll hear on this episode is an amazing case study that demonstrates how digital transformation is changing the way companies do business in a variety of areas, not just in sales and marketing. You’ll glean many insights from this conversation that you can apply across the board in your digital strategy, not just in the area of recruiting, so be sure you take the time to listen.

Here’s how @iQor and @Work4Labs pioneered a social #recruiting approach that works wonders! Listen! to this episode of @SBEngine with @BernieBorges, #CMO of Vengreso. @BillWork4 #SBEShow #SocialSellingClick To Tweet

How iQor and Work4Labs Pioneered A Social Recruiting Approach

The approach the Work4Labs team applied to the iQor recruiting process was truly a first-of-its-kind strategy. The advent of Facebook Lead Ads in 2015 is what made it possible to effectively target talent with specific skill sets and characteristics. Using the platform they can even create “look-alike” audiences that enables their ads to have even greater reach. This strategy has become a core approach the Work4Labs team uses with dozens of their clients, to great effect.

You can hear the results iQor got from this targeted way of finding employee leads, how they’ve nurtured relationships with those potential employees, and how those social relationships have converted to new hires at scale, on this episode of Social Business Engine.

Social Recruiting Finds Exclusive Candidates (Those Not Looking For A Job)

As the Work4Leads team got started with their social recruiting strategy they discovered a very surprising and delightful reality about their approach – they were connecting with and nurturing relationships with qualified people who weren’t actually looking for jobs. That means up to 70% of the candidates that finally interviewed for the positions they were seeking to fill were not being courted by other companies at all. The approach has been so successful that Facebook is now the #2 source for applicants for iQor, behind employee referrals.

Another great benefit of using Facebook Lead Ads to generate recruiting leads is that iQor’s cost per candidate wound up being very low – from $1 to $3 per lead. It made the ability to find qualified candidates in record time amazingly affordable and even more effective than traditional approaches.

Digital transformation has made recruiting at scale a reality. But more importantly, this social recruiting case study featuring Work4Labs and iQor demonstrates how companies who are willing to boldly use the tools at their disposal can increase their effectiveness and become pioneers in their industry.
