Cornerstone OnDemand today announced significant enhancements to its talent acquisition solution, the Cornerstone Recruiting Cloud, that make it easier and more efficient for organizations to tap into social networks, as well as their own employee base, and find the very best candidates for the right roles.
“Research shows that while organizations invest more in traditional recruiting methods, nearly half of positions are ultimately filled by other means such as internal candidates, employee referrals and social networking sites,” said Adam Miller, founder and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. “We believe these latest enhancements to the Recruiting Cloud will help companies expand their reach and significantly improve their ability to identify, attract and engage the right candidates. This includes sourcing both internal and external talent, as well as tapping into the personal networks of current employees, to find applicants with relevant skills and experience.”
New Recruiting Cloud features include:
- Social sourcing, which allows recruiters, employees and
candidates to share jobs across hundreds of social networks, online
communities and job boards. Recruiters and hiring managers also are
able to automate and track the publishing of jobs, as well as segment,
target and reach specific audiences by the types of social media they
- Job matching technology suggests contacts for specific jobs
based on social profile information, significantly improving the
ability to identify, attract and engage the most qualified candidates,
especially passive job seekers.
- Employee referral capabilities help to engage employees at
every level of the organization in the recruiting process, making it
easy for them to initiate referrals and use their social networks to
spread the word. And automatic tracking of referrals ensure that
employees can get recognized for their contributions.
The Recruiting Cloud integrates with Cornerstone’s comprehensive talent management software suite, giving talent acquisition teams and hiring managers better insight into internal candidates and existing talent pools. Cornerstone’s solution also is typically deployed across the entire workforce, making it even easier for companies to engage employees in the talent acquisition process.
