How to Create a Scalable Global Recruiting Strategy

May 1st, 2019 Posted by AI/ML, Candidate Engagement, Recruiting

Sacramento Capitol (3)Creating a high quality candidate experience when recruiting for positions across the globe presents a unique set of challenges that should be addressed by your global recruiting strategy. It’s clear that enterprise talent acquisition teams responsible for hiring across borders can benefit from understanding culture differences & building support systems to fill gaps in service coverage. What’s not always clear is how. Take a look at the following tips to learn how you can work towards establishing a recruiting model that works across the globe.

Communication: One Channel Does Not Fit All
Communication has a crucial impact on whether or not a recruiting strategy is successful. However, methods of communication vary across cultures and countries. For example, text messaging and Facebook messenger are most popular in the United States [1], WeChat dominates in China, WhatsApp is most commonly used in India and Brazil [2], and KakaoTalk is the main messaging app in South Korea [3]. Therefore, it is important to do research on which platforms or applications are most used in different countries so you can refine your recruiting strategy to accommodate for cultural differences and engage talent.

Artificial Intelligence: Create a Strong Candidate Experience & Mitigate Time Zone Differences
Scaling your recruiting strategy to a global level can be difficult. Differences in time zones can cause delayed communication because recruiters and applicants are hours apart. To combat this, organizations can implement recruiting AI into their global recruiting communications strategy – this will help bridge the communication delay as chatbots are readily available 24/7 to answer any general questions candidates may have. Furthermore, AI chatbots can streamline interview scheduling by allowing candidates to pick and choose the dates and times that work best for them without the back-and-forth of e-mail.

Virtual Career Fairs: Scale Your Recruiting Events Strategy Without Travel Expenses
The biggest question when it comes to establishing a global recruiting strategy is: How can organizations recruit top talent without meeting them face-to-face? That’s where virtual career fairs come in. Virtual Career Fairs are chat-based online events that enable recruiting teams to execute candidate capture and branding of their events. With virtual events, companies can reduce cost-to-hire and reap the benefits of a personalized conversation without the in-person meeting or geographical barriers.

To recap, when creating your global recruiting strategy keep in mind the following tips. Make sure your plan accounts for variable preferred communication methods across the globe and that your recruiting team is equipped to communicate on such platforms while remaining compliant. Implement a recruiting AI into your strategy to answer FAQs, screen, and provide support to candidates in different time zones. Finally, scale your recruiting events strategy by considering options like virtual career fairs that help you scale while keeping costs low.

While lack of diversity and hiring bias are not new phenomena among the workplace, it also shouldn’t be overlooked. As a matter of fact, the success of a company is partially dependent on its diversity – a firm with a wide range of employees benefit from broader skill sets, experiences, and perspectives which puts them at an advantage over homogeneous organizations [1]. Studies have also proven that ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to meet financial targets and outperform their peers [2].

So, how can companies combat these issues?

The State of Text Recruiting in Healthcare

June 1st, 2018 Posted by AI/ML, Recruiting, Text Messaging


It’s no secret at this point that recruiting in the healthcare industry is tough. It is undoubtedly one of, if not THE most regulated field. This is understandable, people put a lot of trust in doctors, nurses, and physicians, and lives are literally at stake. You want to know when you go in for surgery, the qualifications for your doctor were more than a white coat and the ability to look contemplatively and handsomely at the camera. This is what lands the average time-to-hire in healthcare at a scary 49 days, well above the national average.

May 25th, 2018 Posted by AI/ML, Candidate Engagement, Mobile, Text Messaging


Over the past few years, a larger emphasis has been placed on the candidate in the recruiting process. Whereas candidates used to have to pine for the attention of recruiters, recruiters are now trying to find ways to woo candidates. There are a number of factors that contribute to this transition. Unemployment is at record-low numbers, giving job seekers the ability to shop around a little more for the perfect job. Social media can now also make anyone’s experience as a candidate amplified for the whole world to see, either in a positive or negative way. Overall, candidates are starting to look more like customers in the eyes of the recruiter.

How to better Engage Candidates with Recruiting Automation

April 27th, 2018 Posted by AI/ML, Candidate Engagement, Recruiting


It’s hard to imagine that automation and candidate engagement can coexist peacefully. At a glance, they appear to be polar opposites. On one side, you have automation: cold, fast, efficient, and unrelenting. On the other side, you have engagement: warm, collaborative, communicative, and human-oriented. How can you achieve that candidate engagement you are always striving for in the recruiting process when a major aspect of communication is with a robot?

How to Use Recruiting Automate Talent Rediscovery

For desk-less positions, the chance that an ideal candidate will apply for your vacancy is low. So, you do what most recruiters do and begin sourcing high and low. You scour the internet, cold-call, and place adverts anywhere you can. This all takes time and, unless your spending serious cash on purchasing advertising space, it likely isn’t all that effective. In fact, you may have overlooked the lowest cost and most effective source of candidates for your positions – your existing talent database.
