Social media as a recruitment tool
The top strategy cited by 64 per cent of respondents is the use of technology, mainly LinkedIn recruitment. Social media as a recruitment tool is a huge opportunity for companies to target the relevant individuals with the required skillset, helping to more accurately screen potential applicants. Technology was also identified by 46 per cent of respondents as a tool to closely monitor labour turnover data. Employers can quickly identify areas of the business affected by high levels of labour turnover, developing targeted support for individual teams as opposed to more generic policies across the firm that have less of an impact.
