Social media in recruitment needs to be increased

According to a study carried out by social media giant Linkedin, recruiters and HR professionals in the UK need to become better at using social media to ensure that they recruit the best talent to work in their organisations. 

Chris Brown, Director at Linkedin Talent Solutions stated that ‘Recruiters understand that their industry is changing. They can see that social media recruitment and mobile recruiting are only going to increase in importance’. 

31% of the 500 senior HR &recruitment professionals interviews agreed that they weren’t taking full advantage of social media platforms.
