When we think of brand-building, we think of happy customers who’d be willing to vouch for us. Brand patrons truly are, the real assets of any company. No wonder, organizations worldwide, lay so much emphasis on customer satisfaction and resort to advertising, social media campaigns, lotteries, discount schemes, and just so many other ways of pleasing their customers.
Brand building is often associated with the sales and marketing department of any company. But as branding initiatives attempt to strike more personal chords with their customers, than the professional, brand building has become a collaborative effort. Each employee and every department within an organization need to contribute to brand building, playing by their strengths. And it is against such a backdrop that recruiters have emerged as the new torchbearers for the brand building exercise.
Why a recruiter should care about brand building
Imagine you are a job seeker and a recruiter calls you for an interview. Now, after having interviewed with you, the recruiter rejects you saying that your skills do not really match their job requirements. You may end up questioning, “Could they not identify this skill and requirement gap before wasting my time in this interview.” Such an experience leaves candidates dejected and slightly negative towards an organization. And because it’s quite natural for people to take to social media any and every emotion they feel, it’s more than likely that such dejected candidates may follow the same route too. Haven’t we seen people make snarky comments on Twitter and Facebook, trying to bring a brand down, only because they had an unpleasant experience with a company? Therefore, matching a candidate’s skill sets with the job requirements is extremely vital in today’s recruitment parlance. Recruitment intelligence makes the matching possible for recruiters or recruitment agency.
But recruitment intelligence does not only come handy when things turn foul and damage control is required. A recruitment process that’s proactively designed around recruitment intelligence goes a really long way in the brand building. Recruitment agencies can create a positive perception around the employer brand, influencing candidates to apply for job postings.
