Crowd sourcing

Crowdsourcing and crowd staffing are the latest buzz words in the modern recruitment world. Employers follow many methods to hire best talents that would fit their vacancies. There are traditional methods like outsourcing, using freelancing community, recruiting through staffing recruiters and headhunters etc.

But all these methods give them access to a very limited pool of talent where they may or may not find the best fit they were looking for and sometimes they have to make a comprise too.

Every company needs talented resources and that is what they primarily look for while filling positions. But what if they can’t meet their ideal employee due to the shortage of passive employees or competition to hire the best among other companies?

While these are the major drawbacks of hiring through traditional methods, let us look into the terms crowd sourcing and crowd staffing which can do away with these limitations.

1. What is crowd sourcing?

In simple terms, crowd sourcing means optimizing and utilizing a group of individual workforce to get our job done. You can imagine Uber car service or Airbnb here which are popular examples of this.

Crowd sourcing is not new to talent acquisition anymore. Many companies have started using this due to its cost effective and efficient nature.

In crowd sourcing recruitment, companies use a pool of independent recruiters or headhunters to hire the best fit for their vacancy and conduct interview for the selected ones to find the best among them.

The recruiters who are hired to do their job work hard to bring in best talent among both active and passive employees in order to get paid well.

This is beneficial for both employers and recruiters and helps in finding the best talent in the marketplace
