Offering hundreds of diversity and women focused sites to recruit this highly sought after talent pool
NEW YORK CITY, NY— AUGUST 17, 2011 — SmartPost, the innovative online job posting and sourcing product from Bernard Hodes Group, continues to expand its growing e-media library in support of diversity initiatives for its customers.
Finding and attracting diversity talent still remains a top priority for many employers, even as hiring activities have slowed. Diversity recruitment continues to be attached to long-term business critical goals which are tightly aligned to the growth and success of their companies. Employers recognize that the collaboration of different cultures, ideas, and perspectives is an organizational asset that brings forth greater creativity and innovation in their workplace.
As companies look for ways to embrace and drive these diversity initiatives, they must have the right tools to support their HR teams who take the lead on increasing visibility, building employer brand recognition, and attracting these high profile candidates. SmartPost seamlessly supports these efforts by offering recruiters instant and easy access to hundreds of diversity job boards and sourcing destinations.
The SmartPost system identifies, recommends and distributes job openings to the most targeted sites based on several key criteria. Recruiters no longer have to know all the sourcing opportunities available to them as the SmartPost media recommendations engine helps them target only the most relevant sites for their needs. SmartPost also tracks and measures all source of hire data back into their ATS or Talent Management System so recruiting strategies can continue to be honed for ROI and performance.
