Why source workers on Facebook?

 

Job boards are no longer delivering who you want to hire. 

We are in a skilled labor shortage, only 5% of the workforce is unemployed. It is CHALLENGING to find quality candidates. 

A 'buyers' market combined with the era of short attention spans, millennials and rapid technological changes is a perfect recruiting storm. How employment opportunities are advertised is shifting quickly, along with everything else in our modern lives.

RhinoFox’s services help you reach both active and passive candidates by placing your employment offer in front of candidates during their normal daily activities.

The construction industry is growing and new qualified, licensed workers aren't 'made' overnight.

Even if your turnover is below the industry average of 21%, new hires are necessary for business growth. If your company is known for quality and great customer service you have the projects. You just need the workforce to deliver on them at your brand’s level of quality in order to meet your growth goals.

We help you build a list of qualified workers, automate nurturing of candidate leads and expand your recruiting reach with ease.

Enough about us… Let’s talk about you.

You’re probably wondering a few things, such as…

Can we help you in your industry?

We specialize in cost-effectively sourcing pre-qualified, licensed tradesworkers (electricians, solar, plumbers, drivers) in quantity. The quick and painless way to find out if this solution is a fit for your needs is to schedule a consultation. In less than 10mins you’ll have an answer and new resources for free.

 

Who are you and why should I work with you?

Can’t I just take this in-house?
The short answer is: Yes. What we do is not rocket science. It can be learned and repeated by others, in fact, you might notice that we make efforts to disclose information. Why do we do share so much? Because…
-We have a high value on education, partnership and leveraging our knowledge to help connect workers with outstanding EVPs.

Why haven’t I heard of RhinoFox, or this service before?
A few reasons you might not have hear of us… First, we prefer doing high quality work for a smaller number of clients than delivering chop-shop results. Second (however awkward this is for us as a marketing company) it makes sense that since there are a limited number of qualified fish in the recruiting pond that our clients tend to keep mention of our services within their associates and non-competitors. We’ve been called a ‘Secret Weapon’ on more than one occasion. As to the service, while companies like Siemens, Melton Truck Lines, McDonalds and Pepsico have long ago discovered the advantages of advertising jobs on Facebook, it is still a bit out-of-the-traditional ‘recruiting’ box in the trades.

 

This is pretty new to me and I don't understand how it all works. Can you explain more?
Fair enough. We don't expect you to be the expert. Your role is to receive the candidate leads and follow up with them. We handle the rest. Schedule a free consultation to have all of your questions answered in whatever detail you like, even if you’re not quite sure what questions to ask yet we can guide you through the process so questions specific to your situation will rise naturally.

Ultimately, we want happy, satisfied clients and strive to communicate clearly, including minor tweaks after launch of the system. We actually care that this is working well for your HR Team and invest time to ensure we are in alignment with your goals.

 

What about OHSA standards? We've all seen those lame stock images used in general media...
Safety first, not third.. We are highly aware of this issue and partner with you to ensure we are meeting your standards, as well as providing results. We actually know what PPE is and our management includes ensuring that those aren't plumbers tools in the electrician's tool belt, or vice versa.

 

I’m concerned about my relationships with other contractors in the area. What about the backlash of advertising job openings, or will this be ‘stealing’ workers away from other contractors in the area?
If you are already advertising on job boards then you are already exposed as hiring. Your response to candidates from this service would be similar to your response from one of your existing outreach strategies. Each company has a unique situation and we are happy to answer questions on a call. Click HERE to schedule a free consult to review your company’s specific situation. Something to consider is that “74% of employees are open to a new job” - Jobvite 2016 and, from what we understand, dissatisfied workers typically aren’t thriving and therefore not as productive as they could be. Is that really the best situation for the employer or employee?

 

What are the bottom-line costs?
We don’t want to lie to you. At its core: This is marketing. We do not know what fish (or how many!) are in the pond you want to recruit from until we actually go fishing in that pond. What we can do is to evaluate the pond on your behalf from our experience BEFORE you spend a dime with us. If our evaluations says this strategy is not likely to produce the results you want, we will tell you that. AND, we will make recommendations upon what strategies might be a better match for your goals.

Costs are set at one flat rate for setup and initial advertising period. Options to continue are month-to-month thereafter. No hidden fees. Ever.

Each Candidate Sourcing System is custom built to your company’s goals. Those customizations determine the flat rate which is discussed with you upfront. Our systems average $160-$270 per pre-qualified candidate lead in the first 60 days.

 

How is this different than a job board, or using a Headhunter/Recruiter?
Job boards capture candidates who are actively seeking employment. Only 5% of the workforce is unemployed. Our service places your employment opportunity in front of active AND PASSIVE CANDIDATES. Similar to job boards, our service produces multiple candidate leads (no cap on how many for one flat rate) whereas a Headhunter brings in a specified number of individuals. Our service is designed to be a cost effective alternative to Headhunters and bring in more leads, as well as, better quality leads than job boards.

 

We have limited bandwidth. How much time will this take on our part?
Your role in setup is pretty simple and painless. Usually less than an hour on a call with your RhinoFox PM to answer questions so that we can customize the system to your goals and unique company needs. The time required to follow up the candidate leads we source for you depends upon the number of leads and is similar to what you would already do for candidates coming in from other sources.

 

What if our workforce needs change over the year?
Boom and bust is a reality of construction. Our services are month-to-month and once your custom system is built, you can archive the system for reinstatement until your workforce needs increase again. (Plus, you’ve built a contact list of pre-qualified workers you can resource from first!)
