These are “passive candidates” or passive talent who aren’t actively job searching and, according to LinkedIn, now account for 70% of the global workforce. Since passive candidates make little to no effort to find employment, they are much tougher to identify. However, if hiring top talent is on your to-do list, then you need to be proactively searching for these candidates and engaging with the passive workforce. Here are a few ways your company can implement an effective recruitment strategy to target passive candidates.
