LAS VEGAS, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Bullhorn, Inc. took social recruiting corporate. Two new modules are now available to the thousands of corporate HR departments where recruiters already use Bullhorn Reach. Bullhorn Reach Team helps recruiting teams make social recruiting efforts more consistent, productive and effective. Bullhorn Reach Referrals boosts companies' best source of new hires - referrals - by tapping the social networks of employees, company alumni, and other groups.
"With more than 90 percent of recruiters using social media, it's rapidly becoming a critical channel for recruiting and employment branding. But, there is a learning curve and without a streamlined tool, the entire process is inefficient," said Art Papas, founder and CEO of Bullhorn. "So far, the growth of Bullhorn Reach has greatly exceeded our expectations, with recruiter usage doubling every three months. In hundreds of organizations we have 10 or more recruiters using it individually. The new Bullhorn Reach modules help recruiting teams align and coordinate individual recruiter and employee efforts to create an unstoppable talent machine."
Bullhorn Reach (www.bullhornreach.com) debuted in July as a social recruiting tool for individual recruiters. Since then, over 20,000 recruiters have signed up for the free edition, Bullhorn Reach Personal, to eliminate the tedium of learning about and manually searching through social networks. A one-stop-shop to post jobs, find qualified candidates, and build brands, Bullhorn Reach Personal reduces time to hire by freeing up recruiters to focus on building relationships with candidates. Radar, a key feature, turns social media data into predictive business intelligence by scanning and analyzing usage patterns on LinkedIn and Facebook profiles. Radar identifies qualified professionals who might be considering a job change, often well before they've begun actively searching for a new job.
The new Bullhorn Reach modules offer significant enhancements on top of Bullhorn Reach Personal:
Bullhorn Reach Team adds management, reporting, collaboration and branding to increase the quantity and quality of social recruiting candidate flow. Ensuring the whole team consistently adopts the most productive approaches, it automates repetitive tasks from job assignment to monitoring and reporting, and strengthens employment branding with the addition of logos, branded employment pages and branded Facebook pages.
Bullhorn Reach Referrals enables a company to save time and energy managing a referral program and growing its best source of candidates by leveraging the social networks of employees, alumni and other groups. Providing a simple to use interface, employee control over communications and feedback and recognition tools, Bullhorn Reach Referrals overcomes common barriers to broader employee participation in referral programs.
Recently signed customers remarked on how the new Bullhorn Reach modules are helping to power their recruiting efforts:
