What does it mean to have a talent community? It’s a word that’s often thrown around when discussing social recruiting, but much less often defined. With so many ways to connect with our employees, potential candidates, and fans across so many different social platforms, the concept of “social talent community” can seem like a nebulous and lofty goal--but where and how do you build one?
A talent community is, at its core, a home for the people who have an investment in the company culture--whether they’re employees who love what they do, fans who love the brand, or potential candidates who are considering bridging the gap between being a fan and becoming an employee.
The ideal place to build this home is on Facebook. After all, if home is where the heart is and the heart of one’s social recruiting strategy is on Facebook, then one is meeting over 1 billion active potential candidates on the network where they live. While one may not want to invite all 1 billion people over for a social housewarming party, the fact that one has access to a network of people that contains not only actively and semi-actively job seeking professionals but also a huge pool of passive talent that’s just waiting to connect with the firm and the brand.
