In an improving economy with a finite labor pool of potential candidates, how do you develop/maintain competitive advantage to ensure you meet your firm's hiring objectives? What new technologies would you leverage? What strategies would you deploy?
UPS needed to support its own plans for growth, while at the same time compete against other small, medium and large-sized companies that were growing their organizations, too. UPS turned to mobile and social to drive the extra hires they needed. The company’s recruiting strategy successfully met its "Just-In-Time" hiring needs for high-volume and hard-to-fill positions. In 2013 and 2014, UPS drove more tracked hires from its mobile and social channels than any other recruiting source.
