Candidate Nurturing: Break the Cycle
Stop contributing to media dependence
What is Candidate Nurturing ?
Candidate nurturing helps turn passive talent into successful hires by nurturing the existing relationship.
Did an applicant not fit a particular role but would be a good fit for another position within the company down the road? Nurturing that relationship means staying in contact with the applicant and ensuring a positive experience so they will want to reapply when another role opens.
See how staying in touch with your past applicants will help your team decrease spending on traditional media, shorten time-to-fill, and much more.
How Does Wicresoft's Candidate Nurturing Program Work?
Our program identifies good candidates that already live within your ATS and markets engaging information to them consistently, automatically, and with no impact on recruiter bandwidth.
The program utilizes pre-screened, self-selecting, qualified candidates (already a resident within your candidate pipeline) who will eventually be open to the discussion of a new opportunity. It nurtures that initial interest in your company over time with engaging information that is marketed strategically and embodies a range of content mediums.
It not only changes the behavior of your candidate pool, but it works with your recruiter team to place more focus on the candidates you already have, rather than the ones that can be acquired through yet another media spend.
The job market is more competitive than ever. With passive talent being the bulk of the talent pool, 78% of companies are reporting being unable to find enough candidates in the market to fill their open roles. Here are a few benefits of utilizing a Candidate Nurturing strategy:
This strategy can be set up so that it goes 24/7 with minimal tweaking. Set up the assets, establish a distribution calendar, and press send. Now your recruiter can focus on the other multitude of tasks they have to do.
Candidate Pipeline Veracity
Because you will be wooing the candidates, they will be more receptive to your outreach than to your competitors. When recruiters send job openings, they will get a second glance because candidates will recognize the name as a company of interest rather than spam.
This is vital in the sale of any product. Why you not them? It is likely your competitor is doing little to distinguish themselves and is just adding clutter to the email noise. This is good for you. Take this chance to stand out.
Having the habit and the strategy of continuing to market to the product of your recruitment advertising spend, the candidates, is not only going to increase the life of the spend, but also the ROI on it. Done effectively this can impact, if not reduce, the spend on media and agencies.
The recruitment process culminates in an offer or a rejection. The emotional investment by the candidate is not insignificant, and yet unless a job offer is forthcoming the company will frequently “ghost” them. Continuing to foster a positive relationship with former prospective candidates will be to your benefit.
