One of the biggest challenges for businesses these days, large or small, is the attraction, recruitment and retention of top talent. This is not necessarily a new thing but it is particularly challenging given the changes to the global economy and it's impact on the talent pool, the mobility of talent and the nature and evolution of the communicaiton channels available to us as marketers, communicators and HR professionals.
We wanted to share some of the startups that are playing in the social recruiting space as part of a series of posts looking at how technology can help you secure talent.
So in no particular order here are five you should have a look at and let us know what you think! (or if you know of any others out there worth talking about)
