Text Message Recruiting Best Practices

Determine if text message recruiting is the right fit for your candidates.

Text messaging can be a valuable tool to work with candidates, particularly millennials - because they grew up text messaging family and friends. Setting interviews and conversations are much easier using texting. However, text messaging is not Staples' Easy Button for the balance of the Recruiting Process. A particular concern is the desire of the candidate to only use text messaging to communicate. Once they join a company, interpersonal communication becomes important. Employee Engagement is down to its lowest measure in history. Gallup's 2017 State of the American Workplace found that only 29% of Frontline Managers and 36% of Professionals are engaged in their jobs. Learn how to use candidate text messaging desires and practices as an indicator of potential engagement and fit in your environment. Not every candidate is a good fit for a company culture. This topic provides ways for you to begin to determine if the candidate is a fit for the multigenerational climate in your company.
