Scientific Recruitment: Social and Digital Strategies

Scientific Recruitment: Social and Digital Strategies

Hiring

It can be tricky to find the talent you need in the scientific field. Many scientists rely on their network to find work and haven’t found their digital presence, but there is still a place for social and digital media in your recruitment efforts.

Scientists spend their lives researching, looking for the next discovery and sharing and discussing with others. What platform is better for that than social media, where anyone can talk to anyone else around the world? By using digital media, you can now share nearly anything in real time.

Here are some strategies to use when recruiting scientific talent through social and digital media:

  1. Make sure your company has a social media presence. The basics of this typically include Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. Publish industry news frequently to keep your pages active. Be sure to engage with those who interact with your pages.
  2. Let people in. Post about your company culture on your social media. Congratulate employees on anniversaries, announce awards you’ve won, post photos of the last conference you attended or raise awareness of a charity that your company supports. This will give outsiders some insight into your company culture.
  3. Use video. Video interviews are a great way to really connect with applicants, but take this a step further by creating a video job description. When you’re recruiting for a position, create a video that shows the work the employee will be doing, interviews with other workers and other information about the site and duties.
  4. Create your own content. Use your expertise to write industry articles that touch on current events and news. Take your own approach and support it with facts or case studies to show that you are a thought leader and expert in your field.

Use these strategies to set yourself apart in the digital sphere and attract scientific candidates. Those who are already using social and digital platforms will take notice of your company presence and know exactly where to look for their next career opportunity.

Earned by less than two percent of all staffing agencies in the U.S.

CLEVELAND, OHIO – FEBRUARY, 2017 – Alliance Solutions Group is proud to announce that all of its brands have won Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Awards for providing superior service to their clients and job seekers, along with its sister company, Alliance Industrial Solutions.

“We’ve been working hard over the last year with all of our brands to continue to improve our user experience, and recognition from Best of Staffing proves that our efforts around client and talent satisfaction are paying off,” said Tony Nicol, president of Alliance Solutions Group.

Presented in partnership with CareerBuilder, Inavero’s Best of Staffing winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based completely on the ratings given to them by their clients and the permanent and temporary employees they’ve helped find jobs.

Promoters are people who rate a business as a 9 or 10 out of 10 – meaning they would highly recommend the business to others. Within the Alliance Solutions Group family of companies:

  • Alliance Scientific Solutions– specialized in lab, quality, R&D, compliance and engineering– received a promoter score of 64% for talent.
  • Alliance Search Solutions– a direct-hire recruitment firm for engineering, operations, supply chain, IT, finance, HR, sales and marketing– received a promoter score of 82% for talent and 74% for clients, earning them their second consecutive set of Best of Staffing Awards.
  • Alliance Managed Accounts– a high-volume office and clerical firm– received a promoter score of 67% from talent and 71% for clients.
  • Alliance Technical Solutions– specialized in skilled manufacturing received a promoter score of 70% for talent and 68% for clients, earning them their second consecutive Best of Staffing Talent Award.
  • Alliance Healthcare Solutions–specialized in nursing, allied health and healthcare executive recruitment– received a promoter score of 73% for talent, earning them their second consecutive Best of Staffing Talent Award.
  • Alliance Office Solutions– specializing in administrative placements– received a promoter score of 73% for talent.
  • Major Legal Services– specialized in attorney, paralegal and legal support staff placements– received a promoter score of 76% for talent, earning them their third consecutive Best of Staffing Award.
  • Alliance Resource Solutions– specialized in finance and accounting, as well as HR consulting– received a promoter score of 81% for talent.

As a whole, the staffing industry only receives a 21% NPS score on the talent side, and a very low 4% on the client side. On average, clients of winning agencies are nearly three times more likely to be completely satisfied and talent of winning agencies are 50% more likely to be completely satisfied with the services provided compared to those working with non-winning agencies.

Award winners, including the Alliance Solutions Group family of companies, make up less than two percent of all staffing agencies in the U.S. who earned the Best of Staffing Award for service excellence.
