Another report supporting the addition of Web 2.0 into your staffing software (Click here) strategy has come out.

“Health Care Recruiting and Social Media Report – Prognosis: Optimistic,” a new report from Hodes iQ, found that most healthcare recruiters believe Web 2.0 is a good fit for their industry, but that few recruiters have fully adopted leading-edge social media and interactive tools for recruiting and talent management.

The report found that social media has an impact on all industries – not just healthcare – and that many recruiters and companies are still not sure how to begin using it to their advantage. Healthcare recruiters should take this as a sign to begin adding social recruiting enhancements to their overall hiring strategy.

The report highlights the key findings and illustrates the current state of play in healthcare recruiting and retention around social media, including:

  • The impact of social media and interactive Web 2.0 tools on candidate behavior and how to turn that interaction into actionable recruiting touch points.
  • The fears that many companies have in using social media and how they can overcome them to enhance sourcing efforts.
  • The tools available to help organizations tap into employee engagement, create brand awareness and expand recruiting reach.

The report from Hodes iQ is one of many concerning the use of social media in the recruiting world.
