WERC Research - Hiring associates

January 13, 2014

WERC Research - How do you announce your job positions?When it comes to announcing job openings, not many companies rely on newspaper ads, but social networks and online job boards are combining to become the second most popular means of attracting talent. The most frequently used method according to our survey is direct contact using word of mouth (67%) and employee recommendations (82%), which outstrip the competition. When you consider that the last two methods are directly related to associates, it’s clear that current employees are doing a fine job of “marketing” the industry. Use of commercial agencies and hiring fairs was reported by slightly less than 50% of respondents, while use of industry groups, labor unions and local job service agencies were the least popular.
