You think: “What for?”
To know what people are saying about you.
By people, we mean mainly your current and potential employees. As you may probably know, the majority of candidates search for opinions about their potential employer on the internet using various channels like social media, forums, or services with opinions about employers. It’s worth to keep up with such information and react properly (if needed).
According to research conducted by HRM Institute, the most reliable opinions about an employer come from his employees. Remember, your employees are your “advocates” (btw, do you know the “social media advocacy” topic?) and you should monitor what they write about you on the web. For example, at SentiOne, we mark all posts showing life at Senti with a hashtag #sentiteam. The hashtag was naturally incorporated to our team members private posts 🙂
Third usage – candidate experience. More and more companies are measuring what candidates are saying about their recruitment process for example by dedicated questionnaires. How about monitoring their spontaneous opinions? Properly set project and alerts will help in catching those mentions.
To build relationship
If you monitor what people write about your brand on a daily basis, you can easily start a dialogue with them. Sometimes, seemingly unrelated discussions can turn into fruitful cooperation. As a bonus, by talking with candidates, you build your employer’s image and such openness will certainly pay off.
To find new talents (social recruiting)
Internet monitoring tool might come in handy while sourcing for new candidates as well.
In this case, you need to set up proper keywords which will lead you to the right people. Then, the only thing you need to do is to start a conversation 🙂 Let’s see how it works while searching for Front-end Developer:
To monitor your recruitment and Employer Branding campaigns
While designing an Employer Branding campaign, we should always set a goal and measure the desired results. Our indicators of effectiveness in the campaign can be recruitment measures, e.g. the number of applications submitted for the offered position, the quality of submitted applications, or employee employment costs, but it is important to simultaneously monitor the tone and reach of the campaign on the internet. It is worth taking a look at who writes about it, what they write, when, and where.
In SentiOne, you can set a project dedicated to your campaign and monitor what people are writing about it. In addition, using the dashboard, you can see the entire summary of the project with information such as the dynamics of mentions, sentiment, gender distribution, sources, etc.
It’s always worth keeping an ear to the ground and know what the competition is up to, especially if we operate in a highly specialized industry. Such knowledge will certainly be useful, for example, while designing next employer branding or recruitment activities. In addition, this way you can spy some good practices and use it with some adjustments 🙂
