Jobscience Survey: Facebook is a ‘New Essential’ for Social Recruiting

Jeremy News

SAN FRANCISCO, June 25, 2012 – Jobscience Inc., the leader in Talent Management for the Social Enterprise, today announced the results from a survey conducted by Research Now, which found that 36% of U.S. corporations plan to use Facebook more for recruiting this year than last. Facebook was cited in the survey as the second most important social network for recruiting – following LinkedIn.

The research shows that social recruiting is here to stay, as almost 60% of respondents agree that the next ‘big thing’ in recruiting strategies is reaching a greater number of qualified candidates through social media networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook. More than half (57%) of the corporations surveyed expect to use LinkedIn more than any other tool for recruiting – more than job boards, email marketing and employee referral programs.

“Using social networks to find candidates for current job openings has become a common strategy for recruiters,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “But the real value of social recruiting is when companies continually engage with people through social networking – so when an appropriate job opens up – the person is familiar with the company and has a propensity to want to work there. It’s about social sourcing and building pipelines of talent – so your talent pool never runs dry.”

Social networks are not just important tools for recruiters; candidates are using them to research companies. This study revealed that 52% of U.S. corporations believe that social networks are an important venue for businesses to attract candidates.

“As Facebook becomes the most relevant place on the web – it is also putting a face on the ‘employment brand’ of companies,” added Elliott. “Information about a company is no longer solely controlled by recruiters. Candidates and employees are using social media to gather information about companies. If companies want to attract top talent, they need a strategy for their employment brand – which includes monitoring how their brand is perceived on social networks, facilitating a social dialog and giving compelling reasons for people to work at their company.”

Which Social Network is the most Important?

Within the Research Now survey, LinkedIn was cited as the social network that matters most with 86% of respondents giving it top bill, followed by Facebook at 51% and Google+ at 27%. Respondents found Twitter to be the least important social network for recruiting – at only 16%. But the gap between Facebook and LinkedIn could shrink, as 36% of companies plan to use Facebook for recruiting more this year than last year.

About the Survey

The data from this study was drawn from a nationwide online survey of more than 150 HR and recruiting executives, directors and managers. The survey was conducted in March 2012 by Research Now on behalf of Jobscience. The goal was to uncover attitudes and opinions about the use of applicant tracking systems, recruiting solutions and social networks to search for qualified job candidates.

Jeremy News

San Francisco — August 20, 2012 — [FinancialForce.com](http://www.financialforce.com/), the cloud applications company, today announced alliances with [Jobscience](http://www.jobscience.com/), a native Force.com Social Relationship Management solution for hiring, and [AccountAbility Solutions Inc.](http://accountabilitycorp.com/), a native Force.com fixed-asset and remote-asset tracking application provider. Jobscience and AccountAbility both offer best-of-breed, FinancialForce.com-ready solutions that take advantage of the power and accessibility of the cloud to offer industry-specific and specialized business applications. These alliances extend FinancialForce.com’s growing ecosystem of application and implementation partners, continuing the momentum the company created in the first half of the calendar year.

In addition to the new partnerships, the company also announced that Eric Moreau, formerly with SAP, has joined the company in the newly created position of partner success manager. The role was created to nurture FinancialForce.com’s growing partner ecosystem, which also includes implementation partners such as Baker Tilly, Centerstance, CLD Partners and IconATG, as well as a rapidly growing list of ISV partners, including Docusign, Rootstock, Scribe and Xactly.

## Jobscience-FinancialForce.com Alliance to Optimize HR Processes

Staffing and professional services firms can now use the combination of FinancialForce.com and Jobscience to find the best people to staff projects, to capture time entered and to invoice customers for services delivered. Since both solutions are built on the Force.com platform, the apps are inherently integrated, sharing a common data model, security model, workflow engine and reporting tools. Jobscience’s agile Social Relationship Management solution brings a unique combination of social, mobile and CRM processes to talent management, keeping corporations and staffing agencies connected with and attracting top talent. For the past four years, Jobscience has been awarded the AppExchange Customer Choice Award in HR and Recruiting by salesforce.com customers.

“Many of our customers are staffing firms who are recruiting and placing personnel at a client’s location,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “By coupling Jobscience and FinancialForce.com, they can seamlessly track hours and bill the client in an ‘order-to-invoice’ end-to-end solution that is highly flexible and scalable. Being a FinancialForce.com partner has greatly enhanced what we can offer our customers.”

## AccountAbility-FinancialForce.com Alliance Enhances Asset Management, Integration of Depreciation Journals

By integrating with FinancialForce Accounting, AccountAbility’s growing customer base has an easy, cloud-based way to manage and record the appropriate depreciation journal entries for assets. Fixed Asset Tracker from AccountAbility Solutions is a complete fixed and remote asset-tracking application. It tracks assets assigned to or on loan to users, accounts, contacts or other locations. In addition to tracking assets on loan to employees, it tracks additional business-critical information such as warranty expiration dates, warranty service organizations, insurance policy information and more. For just a few cents a month per asset, AccountAbility allows companies to track the fixed assets they give to employees or contractors, saving thousands in missing fixed assets.

“We are excited to be a FinancialForce.com-ready partner,” said Gordon Derk, president, AccountAbility Solutions Inc. “Through our association with FinancialForce.com, we are able to offer completely integrated asset tracking to our joint customers with a 100% cloud-based solution that is completely integrated with FinancialForce Accounting. Not only does Fixed Asset Tracker generate and post depreciation transactions, it tracks the location and supporting information for expensed or capitalized assets.”

In addition to the inherent integration of a common platform, AccountAbility has been an early adopter of FinancialForce ClickLink™ to provide point-and-click configuration of posting rules used to push asset-related transactions into the General Ledger. ClickLink provides a “clicks not code” approach to the definition of field mapping and document posting rules, dramatically reducing the effort required by Force.com ISVs to integrate with FinancialForce.com’s applications.

## Expanded Internal Support for the Growing FinancialForce.com Ecosystem

To better serve and support this growing partner ecosystem, FinancialForce.com also added SAP veteran Eric Moreau in the new role of partner success manager, where he will help partners best take advantage of their FinancialForce.com relationship from both a technological and marketing perspective. Moreau’s appointment follows numerous new partnerships that have already been announced in the first half of calendar year 2012, including partnering with Scribe, Zuora, Rootstock and Baker Tilly. Moreau has 14 years’ experience working in the partnership space, including nine years at SAP as a senior solution advisor.

“The rapid growth of our ecosystem is great validation for the power and potential of the cloud,” said Jeremy Roche, CEO, FinancialForce.com. “We have come a long way from the old ERP approach. Today, companies want to be a part of healthy, vibrant ecosystems with integrated and powerful solutions.

Jobscience Acquires Atomkeep to Help Job Seekers Control Their Social Identity

Nolan Gray News

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 6, 2012 — Jobscience Inc., the leader in Social Relationship Management for Hiring, today announced the acquisition of Atomkeep, a pioneer in social profile management. Atomkeep helps users sync their profile information on social networks, job boards and other Internet sites. Users gain a streamlined way to validate and control their social identity across multiple sites. Accessing user-validated accounts helps recruiters and employers avoid cases of mistaken identity and potential liability issues.

“It has become common practice for employers and colleges to request access to social media sites and use the information to screen applicants,” said Jobscience CEO Ted Elliott. “Job seekers need to control their social identity and validate what they are willing to share with employers.”

On June 26, 2012, the California Assembly Judiciary Committee unanimously approved Senate Bill 1349, which seeks to prohibit California colleges, universities and businesses from requiring a student or prospective student to disclose their username or account password to social networking sites. A U.S. congressional committee is considering the Social Networking Online Protection Act (SNOPA), which would forbid employers from requiring job seekers or workers to hand over their social networking passwords as a condition of employment.

“Employers want to rely on validated social information, and job seekers need the tools to control their public identity. Atomkeep is a first step for Jobscience in bridging the candidate’s needs with an employer’s request to understand the social graph of future employees.”

Atomkeep helps users easily ensure that all of their social network profiles from sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, Monster, Yelp and YouTube are accurate and up to date. Users simply build a profile on a single website and then publish it to all of their accounts. Users can then give potential employers or universities permission to access their validated and updated social profiles — which improves the accuracy of the information and eliminates potential mistaken-identity situations.

Facebook User Spotlight: InternEdge

Jeremy News

We’ve been using Jobscience Recruiting since the beginning of 2011. We were using a similar application — well, actually it wasn’t similar at all — it’s like night and day. There were three key drivers that motivated our management team to make the decision to implement Jobscience: flexibility, intuitiveness and mobile.

## Flexibility

The biggest factor driving our business decision was flexibility. Our current solution was a desktop application with the look and feel of a traditional MS product. It was robust; however, it took a rocket scientist to customize it, which we only found out after the implementation. InternEdge is an innovative tech firm, and we bring disruptive business models to market. Because of this, we need a solution that is as agile as we are. We found that in Jobscience. The application is customized for the industry we are in but flexible enough to meet our unique customer needs. To get this type of product elsewhere would have taken a considerable upfront cash investment.

## Intuitiveness

Technology is only as good as the buy-in from your team. From experience, I know that if there’s a long learning curve, the probability of effective usage drops significantly. During the 30-day trial, we were able to test the user experience and the results were favorable. Everyone loved the application. There weren’t any complex processes, and really, someone could jump right in and use Jobscience without any formal training. The team felt that this technology would make their jobs easier and increase their productivity.

## Mobile

Our business model requires our team to be mobile. We can’t be limited to accessing our applications only from our desktops. We lose productivity and business that way. Jobscience Recruiting is in the cloud and allows access from multiple mobile devices. This is critical to enabling us to get the information that we need — when we need it — whether we’re working on the road or after hours. In this fast-paced, small world, business happens at any time. We know that to be successful and deliver value to your customers, your resources have to be in the cloud.

## Impact on Our Business

After implementing Jobscience Recruiting, we reduced our manual data input time 75 percent by using the email and calendar sync tools. We were easily able to create workflows to automate processes. This allowed our team to focus more of their time on delivering value to our customers — making a positive impact on our bottom line!

Facebook User Spotlight: ProKarma

Jeremy News

As a multinational IT services company, we launched a massive recruitment effort earlier this year. In 2011, we hired more than 300 employees in the U.S., India and Argentina. At any one time, there were between 50 and 100 open positions within the company. With our previous system, if we had experienced this kind of growth, we would have — ironically — needed to hire extra staff to manage all the spreadsheets and separate HR packages running in different countries.

But with Jobscience Recruiting, we’ve saved on staffing costs and stopped doubling up on efforts. All 40 members of our HR and recruiting staff use Jobscience on a daily basis. The system allows users to have different access privileges depending on their role and specialty. Because all of the information is stored and shared in the cloud, our international offices can instantly share information in the same format, with automatic currency changes and language translations.

We were pleasantly surprised by how quickly Jobscience was deployed. It only took six weeks to implement the product in three countries — including data migration and customization.

With 18 offices worldwide, keeping the information flow running smoothly and staying on top of paperwork is a challenge, but running our operations in the cloud has already removed more than 50 percent of the paperwork — which is good news for the environment, too!

Jobscience Adds State of the Art Job Posting Feature to ATS Products

Jeremy News

In addition, integration of JobTarget’s OneClick will give recruiting managers and their staff a seamless way to identify suitable niche job boards for their job postings and post jobs to multiple job boards with just ‘one click’ of a button. Simplifying the job posting process allows HR and Recruiting Managers to better target their recruitment advertising dollars and save significant time and money.

“Adding OneClick to our already feature-rich applicant tracking systems creates a significant competitive advantage. We are extremely optimistic about this partnership and our ability to continue to provide added-value features for our clients”, said Ted Elliott, CEO – Jobscience.
