In the recruitment space, we're constantly hearing about active versus passive candidates. With the majority of the workforce (74%) on the lookout for a new job, we're also beginning to hear about the people that are somewhere in between: tiptoers, explorers, semi-active, etc.
While "active" candidates have been portrayed as less favorable than "passive" candidates, the truth of the matter is that we just want to hire the best and most qualified individuals for our positions. But while one group of candidates isn't necessarily superior to another, there are some differences in how to recruit them. There are also quite a few similarities.
This presentation (and accompanying webinar) reviews the different types of job seekers (passive, active, and everything in-between), and how you can create a comprehensive recruitment strategy that will appeal to each group.
