Profile: Vitalize is a wholly owned sub of SAIC, providing a range of clinical, business and IT solutions for healthcare. Challenges:Experienced consultants were the key to successful technology implementations to its clients, and they had to have the right backgrounds and advanced degrees. It’s a people-centric business, so their challenge was to solve the human part of the recruiting equation. Used job boards and internal databases to source new hires, but they didn’t yield adequate resultsSolution: With Recruiter and Job Slots, they gained access to an almost unlimited database of qualified candidates, both active and passive. They were also able to reinforce their people-centric ideology with a LinkedIn Career Page to showcase its investment in employees and it’s virtual structure and culture. Recruiter quickly became a hit with their recruiters because it was easy to use and helped them find tough-to-reach candidates.
Profile: Bluebeam Software develops PDF solutions for paperless workflows, with customers in architecture, engineering, construction, government, and education. Based in Pasadena, CA with less than 200 employeesChallenges: Started when Tracy Heverly urgently needed to fill two positions: channel sales manager and software developer. Both had to have a technical and cultural fits. Job boards produced too many unqualified candidates, and they didn’t have time to find the diamonds in the rough. Even two agencies she hired could not find the right candidates, and even they admitted the roles were very hard to fill. Solution: Just filling one new position with Recruiter and Job Slots helped recoup the initial investment, and saved an additional $15,000. Filled the channel manager position in just 3 weeks and the developer position 3 weeks later. They reach a far higher caliber of candidate than job boards.

Work on retained and contingency searches for clients, with up to 20 open reqs per months. Hands-on approach, providing well-screened and seasoned professionals. Challenges: Relied on Dice for many years, but when the recession hit in 2008, their clients (who could also use Dice) asked why they should hire an agency when they could search Dice themselves. The landscape was changing, so they needed to differentiate themselves more effectively. Their personal networks on LinkedIn worked well, but they wanted to broaden their access and get more InMails.Solution: RPS let them dig deep into the LinkedIn network to find the best candidates. Managing candidates in project folders and automatically routing applicants saved countless hours each week. They hone in on candidates from competing companies with specific skill sets and location. Made a great hire in China, finding the exact right candidate in the right town they were hiring for. They now make 50% more hires with LinkedIn.

Profile: Beachbody makes popular in-home fitness and weigh-loss solutions. Their corporate mission is to help people achieve their goals and enjoy healthy fulfilling lives. Based in Santa Monica, CAChallenges: Relied heavily on job boards and third-party agencies, often with lackluster results, as they were not enough to attract quality candidates. BB was well known as a multi-million dollar consumer products business, it had little brand recognition for talent acquisition. Solution: Harnessed the effectiveness of social networking by pushing all employees to build LinkedIn profiles and connect with others in their market. With an expanded presence on LI, candidates could research BB and its employees. Recruiter and Job Slots gave recruiters access to a robust pipeline of talent and many candidates were great matches with job openings. Synchronized the recruiting team, allowing them to share candidate folders, profiles and notes – building a transparent talent ID cycle. Built brand awareness on a grand scale with a Career Page, showing a public presence that reflects its core values. Hired 8-12 new employees each week and reduced hiring spend.
Profile: Insight PD provides product development and innovation consulting services, with 80 employees in four offices in US and China. Based in Chicago, ILChallenges: Job boards and staffing agencies comprised the bulk of recruiting, but sifting through 3-400 unqualified resumes was a poor use of time. Agencies specializing in product dev and engineering were expensive, and it was hard to convey its business culture to a 3rd party recruiter. Fragmented approach of post and pray produced inconsistent results.Solution: Centralized sourcing and creating inbound traffic on LinkedIn, now all hiring is steered through LI. Attracted passive candidates with Career Page by showing employee testimonials and videos to see the laid pack, fun work environment without having to navigate away from LI. Hiring managers see that the targeted talent pools are well-represented on LinkedIn. Being networked with employees and industry leaders has helped with referrals.

ING Vysya is one of the leading private sector banks in India with 500 branches and 2 million customersChallenges: Hard to find qualified candidates in a highly competitive sector experiencing strong growth. “The war for talent is a reality in this sector today.” Candidates are spoiled for choice. Recruiters each carry about 100 reqs per quarter. It’s busy and expectations are high.Solution: ING got off the ‘beaten path’ of cliched sourcing avenues and now reaches a previously unexplored pool of talent: the passive job seeker Recruiter and Job Slots have had a dramatic impact on their recruiting strategy. Huge ROI of 400% with Recruiter with minimized hiring times and reduced cost per hire.

Profile: Based in Livonia, MI, TRW Automotive Holdings provides passive and active auto safety systems. Presence in 185 locations globally with more than 60,000 emloyees. 6 recruiters in NA, each managing 20 open positions.Challenges: Reactive approach to recruiting on job boards, with agencies, and purchasing lists of employees from competing firms, which were not always up to date. As LI grew, recruiters used their personal accounts and Groups to source, but they could only contact one person at a time, visibility across the network was limited, they needed introductions to non-connected people, and they could not collaborate with each other. Solution: Transformed its approach to be more proactive with LI. They reach passive candidates without having to comb their personal networks, they expand their personal networks, and build awareness of company brand. Hiring managers now perceive HR and recruiters as business partners and recruitment experts. Value of Job Slots is seen as far greater than normal job slots, now most of their resources are directed to LI. Provided better access to more engineers, who make up 90 percent of openings and expanded access to college students. They’ve had some great new hiring stories, including a recruiter in China who had lived in the US and hard-to-fill positions in their Body Controls Division.
Profile:$1 billion bio-pharma start-up, focus on discovery and development of innovative medicines. HQ in Leuven, Belgium with 100 employees worldwide.

Challenges: Need to attract talent with specific IT skills but also that meet the interpersonal fit of each client. Job Boards provided a limited talent pool, so they needed to think outside the box, to get the right combination of quality and culture on a global scale. Solution: Sara uses LinkedIn internationally to find great candidates that are also great people. Screens not only for experience and certifications but also personality, checking recommendations and extended personal statements to get a broader picture of each candidate. Recruiter Professional Services finds people all over the world for one price, rather than having to go with local job boards in different countries. Gets 25 to 30 matches for each local search. Cost per hire is great and she gets far better responses. “We’ve hired some of our best employees from LinkedIn.”

Challenges: Candidates must has very specific backgrounds in consumer technology or peripherals, often requiring multiple skillsets. Much of recruiting was driven through the corporate website and job boards, as well as purchased lists and “scraping” the internet, which all produced unqualified candidates. Agency resources were not much better than Logitech’s own. Applicant pool for senior level positions tends to be passive. Often took as long as 70 days to fill a senior role. Solution: Fills more than 60% of high-level positions with LI, and 25% of new hires overall in the Americas come from LI. LI saves all the historical information on a candidate, so they can go back and re-engage candidates that responded earlier but were not hired.

Profile: Leading provider of security and compliance management solutions with HQ in Cupertino, CA Director of global recruiting Matt Driscoll’s team fills positions at all locations and for all disciplines Company acquired by HP Challenges: Used to fill 25-40% of positions through agencies and didn’t have an efficient mechanism to find candidates themselves. Rapidly growing but facing stiff competition from larger, more established companies for the limited pool of highly specialized tech talent. Candidates need to have the right certifications and the right mix of education and experience. Professional information about candidates through traditional sources was usually out of date, needed fresh, timely information. Solution: Reduced agency-sourced hires to less than 4%. Recruiter alerts Matt when new LI members meet his criteria, allowing him to beat his competitors to the punch. Contact multiple candidates at once using InMail templates to contact 20 candidates at once (better than copying and pasting text into emails, which is time consuming and error-prone) Team collaborates better with Recruiter so they don’t contact the same candidates and duplicate efforts.
