"In today's competitive hiring environment, using social media to reach top talent is critical. The social recruiting leaders recognized in the Glassdoor Talent Warrior Awards are among those who are at the forefront of their industry -- they are constantly thinking of innovative ways to showcase their company's jobs and culture so that it is top of mind among target candidates," said Steve Roop, Glassdoor general manager, Talent Solutions.
To be considered for the Talent Warrior Awards, individuals were first nominated by peers or themselves. Once nominated, individuals were then asked to share their strategy and perspective on social recruiting. In addition, nominees were evaluated based on their level of social engagement as well as their company's reputation among employees and job candidates on Glassdoor.
Winners were selected by the Glassdoor Social Leaders Panel -- the panel assessed each nominees' approach to social recruiting and how they, and if applicable their team, effectively leveraged social media to promote their company's employment brand and support hiring efforts. The panel included: Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor board director and former head of HR for both Electronic Arts and PepsiCo; Kris Dunn, CHRO at Kinetix as well as founder of HR Capitalist and Fistful of Talent; China Gorman, CEO at CMG Group and former COO for the Society of Human Resource Management; Shannon Seery Gude, vice president of digital & social strategy for Bernard HODES Group, an Omnicom Group Company; and Jessica Miller-Merrell, CEO of Xceptional HR and founder of Blogging4Jobs.
According to a Glassdoor poll released earlier this year, seventy-nine percent of job seekers are likely to use social media in their job search, and more than half (fifty-three percent) of job seekers within the first 10 years of their career say it's important for employers to engage in social media. Glassdoor provides a platform for employers to enhance their recruiting efforts that brings together their jobs, insights about what makes the company an attractive place to work, and connects various social channels including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
