WALTHAM, Mass., September 21, 2010— Bunzl Distribution has chosen Jobmagic as its social media recruiting platform to attract more applicants and increase brand awareness.
Bunzl supplies a range of products including food packaging, healthcare products, and cleaning and safety products to food processors, supermarkets, retailers, convenience stores and other users. The company owns and operates more than 80 warehouses that serve the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and parts of Mexico. With more than 3,000 employees and 250,000 different supply items, Bunzl is regarded as a leading supplier in North America.
Jobmagic, the leading social media recruiting platform, helps companies quickly and easily reach the best talent on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and 300 other social networks. The comprehensive platform includes advanced technologies for social media sourcing, social media optimization, automatic job publishing to social media, referral hiring, talent network management and semantic profile-based matching.
Companies are actively looking for ways to reach Facebook’s 500+ million highly engaged users with their employment brand and current job openings. Jobmagic’s Facebook-native job postings are optimized for social media to trigger the desired viral distribution. The optimization includes variables such as publishing frequency, interactive features, personalization and one-click-easy sharing. The viral distribution enables companies to effortlessly reach a large audience across all social networks with company job postings.
“We were new to social media, so Jobmagic caught my eye as a tool that might give us more exposure,” said Tanya Vandeventer, manager of employee relations and recruitment at Bunzl. “Did it ever! Since we started using Jobmagic, the number of applications has skyrocketed and we already filled several positions.”
Formerly, Bunzl did not have a Twitter account at all, and they just created their LinkedIn account. The company’s Facebook fan page was used only to post company announcements. Now, job openings are tweeted to the company’s branded Twitter account, posted on the company’s Facebook page and published to its Facebook news feed— all automatically.
“The tools Jobmagic offers painlessly usher companies into the world of social media recruiting,” said Jindrich Liska, founder and chief executive officer of Jobmagic. “We enjoy partnering with Bunzl and anticipate continued success in their ongoing social recruiting efforts.”
