Social-fuelled TalentBin by Monster launches in South-East Asia
By Digital News Asia May 15, 2015
- Matches candidates to employers based on candidate activity on social websites
- Recruiters can locate talent who may not be active job seekers
ONLINE recruitment company Monster Worldwide Inc has announced the region-wide launch of TalentBin by Monster, which it said provides recruiters access to previously ‘unfindable’ candidate profiles through aggregated social sources across the Web.
Through this platform, Monster aims to use a storehouse of actionable information and web-based recruiting tools to help locate hard-to-find talent, the company said in a statement.
In a tight labour market, a company’s ability to find, attract, and access the right skilled professionals is critical to success, the company said in a statement.
TalentBin by Monster not only automates and streamlines the talent discovery process via site monitoring, interpretation and matching, but also simplifies the hiring process to allow recruiters do more in less time.
“Skilled technology talent is hard to find and we have found that many potential candidates are not active job-seekers and are less likely to have, and regularly update, a résumé or a professional online profile,” said Sanjay Modi (pic), managing director, Monster (India, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Hong Kong).
“However, the talent recruiters are trying to find are online in many ways, leaving bits of information demonstrating the professional skills that make them desirable candidates. This prompts for a need for a disruptive technology to find this talent,” he added.
By harnessing the vast amount of professionally relevant information people share across social platforms, TalentBin by Monster brings potential job candidates to the surface, Monster said.
Already launched and implemented in both the United Kingdom and United States, TalentBin by Monster is immediately available in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, the Philippines and the Gulf region.
