As it is evident now, these agencies continue to pave the way in matters of social engagement.

The domination that has continued reflects the significant work by staffing firms. These have done great in integrating social media into their strategies. One also sees the importance of social platforms in successful brand creation. As you consider RPO recruitment you might want to engage any of these most engaged staffing agencies. It took a lot of subjects and stakeholders to come up with the list. The compiling of the list is determined by an extensive analysis of the interactions between firms, consultants as well as LinkedIn members. Over 575 million members on LinkedIn were engaged together with 38,000 staffing firms and 260,000 consultants.

LinkedIn considered the social selling index, its talent brand index, and content marketing and other range of metrics while contributing to the listing of top RPO recruitment agencies in the country.

The Director of global search, staffing and RPO recruitment at LinkedIn EMEA in the UK Steve Lewis commented on the great year the UK recruitment had had. He said that the year had been great for recruitment as they continue to lead the way in social engagement. The competition for talent rages on and with the UK having over 24,000 recruitment agencies, it is hard to stand out in such a crowd. At this point, the social media changes a lot by putting the recruiters at an enormous advantage since it facilitates engagement and attraction of candidates as well as new business leads.

Here are the top three tips for social engagement:

– Build relevant, interesting content capable of enriching the members’ feed. This will assist your firm to stand out.

– Start relevant/ meaningful conversations in industry groups which will increase engagement with members – learn more from others as you contribute – or take a step further and begin a new group for discussing hot topics

– Inspire your employees to get on social media and engage in their own professional communities. Steve believes competitions around InMail engagement can be very effective.
