The requisition process contains a workflow which enables users to select who handles the process, reviews CVs and decides on the suitable position.

Social Recruitment

Social media is gaining momentum all the time and there are a lot of different options for an employer to take advantage of. It can be a great and helpful source for discovering passive candidates - those who are employed but ‘open’ to changing jobs for the right opportunity – who represent nearly half of all currently employed talent. Because the desired opportunities rarely exist on job boards, and job seekers are participating in communities all over the web sites (like LinkedIn, for example), social media can become a fascinating place for us to find talent that they may not be able to find otherwise. With iRecruit, we simplify this process even further by first identifying this talent and then connecting with this talent to suggest those candidates.

With LinkedIn and iRecruit the process has become easier and more powerful. We now have the correct tools to attract the right talent with skills and qualifications required for our vacancies.

 

Reporting Applicant Statistics

IRecruit includes several dashboards and reports to allow recruiters and HR management to have live reports over the statuses of job requests, profiles captured and overall applicant statisitics (countries, skillsets, profiles, etc). Since we believe busienss intelligence is an essential part of social recruitment, the reporting module is included as part of the standard offering.



 

Consolidated Contractors Company Case Study

Business Challenge

In 2011, CCC’s management mandated that the company automate their recruitment process. The initiative was kicked off with the development of iRecruit, an in-house system to manage all talent acquisition related activities into one solution. The company also needed to move from a reactive approach to recruitment and be proactive in managing hiring needs and particularly build a strong talent pipeline. More importantly, with growing access to the internet, talent in the Arab world was increasingly becoming accessible online which is what led CCC to LinkedIn; the largest professional network in the world with over 200 million profiles. CCC managed to be one of the pioneers in the region utilizing the gigantic lead technology for attracting and hiring new employees. Whether it is building a talent pipeline, establishing a strong employer brand or even hiring for difficult to fill positions, LinkedIn has helped manage talent needs.
