Why focus on passive candidate recruiting?
According to the LinkedIn Global Talent Trends 2015 report, 75% of the global workforce is considered to be “passive talent” (defined as a person who is not actively in the job market) 15% are reaching out to their personal networks, 45% are open to talking with a recruiter, while only 15% are completely satisfied with their current position.
Since passive candidates aren’t actively looking, you can’t rely on them responding to your traditional recruiting approaches, such as job boards and websites. If you want to hire these passive candidates, you can’t wait for them. You need to be proactive.
A proactive recruiter is constantly looking for people to hire, filling their talent pipeline to approach candidates in the right way at the right time.
This is where ENGAGE comes in.
