To proactively attract and engage today’s consumer-minded candidates, modern recruiting organizations of all sizes are adopting best-practice Marketing principles and adding Recruitment Marketing skills to their teams to give their strategies an edge. SmashFly decided to take a deeper look into recruitment marketing adoption: so we started with the 2015 Fortune 500.

SmashFly analyzed the career websites of the 2015 Fortune 500 to understand their use of 13 Recruitment Marketing practices, including mobile-friendly candidate experience, job messaging by family and initiative, talent network, social careers channels and more.

This original research provides a view into which best-practice Marketing principles are currently being used by the largest recruiting organizations, which best practices are emerging and which best practices are largely untapped. See how your strategy compares — and which practices you should invest in to better compete and even gain an edge.


The Takeaways

The 2015 Fortune 500 earned a “C” average in their use of Recruitment Marketing. Their overall grade was “good” but could be further improved by:

  • Offering targeted messaging for candidate personas on their career site,
  • Increasing their adoption of mobile and social recruiting practices, and
  • Adding a talent network form to capture leads before they are ready to apply.
