Reimagine the talent lifecycle

All staffing firms are well versed in the typical hiring process: finding candidates on job boards, getting them in front of clients to hopefully fill an open role, and engaging with them to create an ongoing relationship.

Connected Recruiting offers a different approach. Alongside searching for net-new candidates, you would also modify your current talent lifecycle to focus more on utilizing the candidates already in your database.

Staffing firms that adopt the Connected Recruiting approach are placing at least 80% of candidates from their database.

Diving into each phase

In order to transform your talent lifecycle, you first need to understand the individual phases of the candidate journey.

What is the talent lifecycle?


Pull talent in through job boards and follow up right away to ensure they don’t slip through the cracks.


Engage the talent already in your database with the right message, at the right time, for the right opportunities.


Deliver a seamless and positive experience in the lead up to the first day and throughout the first weeks on the job.


Proactively nurture throughout their assignment so you can easily engage them for their next role, increasing the rate of redeployment.
