I came across this article yesterday while perusing the internet! As the unemployment crisis improves, organizations are looking for the best way to find, recruit and hire new talent.  This latest survey from Silkroad Technology uncovers where employers are in fact finding their talent!  This latest study; “Recruitment Marketing Effectiveness: Meaningful Metrics Straight From the Source” is now available via their website!

To me, the most intriguing finding is that internal sources, such as employee referrals, inside hires, walk-ins and a company’s career site, produce almost twice the number of hires as external ones, which include job search engines, job boards, print advertising, and job fairs.  I am sure my good friend Ron Bower, of the Bower Consulting Group would agree, he has been preaching this for years!  (Shameless plug for his article written a few years ago on EmployeeScreen Univeristy). You are probably asking yourself how I am going to tie this into background checks and employment screening?  I’m not, the point is you can’t have quality screens until you find good talent!

New Research Shows Where Employers Find Their New Hires

Have you ever wondered where companies find their most qualified candidates and new hires? We have the answer: referrals and their own company career sites.

SilkRoad technology, a global provider of social talent management solutions, has teamed up with more than 700 of its customers to uncover which recruitment methods yield the largest number of interviews and hires. It released its findings in a new report titled “Recruitment Marketing Effectiveness: Meaningful Metrics Straight From the Source.”

It turns out that job applications who come in through internal sources get the same number of interviews as ones from outside. However, internal sources, such as employee referrals, inside hires, walk-ins and a company’s career site, produce almost twice the number of hires as external ones, which include job search engines, job boards, print advertising, and job fairs.
