Hays Extends Links With LinkedIn

Hays plc, the global recruiting expert, announces an extension of its on-going relationship with LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network on the internet. 

Hays is already the world’s most followed recruiting consultancy on LinkedIn, with over 112,000 followers connecting directly to a community of more than 35 million professionals.

This new deal will see Hays increase the number of its specialist consultants with access to LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions and bring thousands more jobs to LinkedIn’s 187 million members worldwide.

In addition Hays is also planning to expand its current network of LinkedIn Groups which already reach an audience of 56,000 LinkedIn members across 20 countries.

These communities cover specialist professional areas and geographies enabling members to better engage with professional peer groups around focused and thoughtful content across all of Hays’ geographies and professional specialist areas.

Recent figures show that LinkedIn counts executives from all 2011 Fortune 500 companies as members and its talent solutions are used by 85 of the Fortune 100 companies.

This latest development builds on the significant investment Hays has made in recent years in developing market leading integrated digital technologies, global databases and extensive, sophisticated search capability supported by Google.

Alistair Cox, CEO of Hays plc, said, “The recruitment industry is at a critical junction in the relationship between the rapidly developing world of social media and the more established world of recruitment. In order to thrive in this evolving world, we have continually positioned ourselves at the forefront of the digital evolution of recruitment and are now using these technologies to lead the development of deeper, longer-lasting relationships with our clients and candidates. The further strengthening of our relationship with LinkedIn gives us greater access to one of the best professional recruiting platforms available today, better enabling us to power the world of work in the digital age.”

David Cohen, Director LinkedIn Talent Solutions Northern Europe, said:

“Because LinkedIn is focused on connecting talent with opportunity at massive scale, we are excited about Hays advancing its relationship with LinkedIn. Hays has proven to be one of the most forward thinking recruitment consultancies and its adoption of LinkedIn is a testament to where we believe the industry is headed.”
