It’s more important than ever for talent acquisition professionals to understand the external labor market and their own workforce. Recruiters can remain competitive by researching where top hirers are recruiting from and what the fastest-growing skills are in a given industry. Determining where the best talent is located can help recruiters find new candidate pools to source from, and other market data can help them to understand which candidates are most likely to engage with their outreach.
Traditionally, this type of research meant wading through reports, stats and data, which might be incomplete or even out of date at the time of publishing.
The solution? LinkedIn Talent Insights.
Launched in 2018, LinkedIn Talent Insights is a talent analytics solution that gives recruiters access to data from more than 575 million professionals, 20 million companies, and 15 million active job listings worldwide.
Using two report functions — the Talent Pool report and the Company report — recruitment professionals can access unique cuts of data that can help with peer benchmarking, competitor analysis, and even deciding where to open a new office.
Here are five ways you can use LinkedIn Talent Insights to make smarter talent management decisions, plus how Talentful can help you do this to even greater effect.
