HR-ON’s LinkedIn Seminar was a Great Success

HR-ON’s LinkedIn Seminar was a Great Success 1200 628 HR-ON

The seminar with LinkedIn held last week at HR-ON’s head office turned out to be a key event in the IT-company’s seven-year-long history. Almost 100 attendees stepped into HR-ON’s brand new office space in the city centre of Odense. This space offers a new conference room and an adjacent kitchen, where the attendees could help themselves to freshly-brewed coffee and breakfast rolls throughout the seminar.

Rasmus Festersen, Conference Coordinator and Director of PR and Communications at HR-ON, welcomed the first speaker to the stage. This first speaker was LinkedIn’s representative, Benjamin Runggaldier, who is the Enterprise Relationship Manager within the public sector. He travelled all the way from Stockholm, Sweden, to share valuable information about the huge career platform. In the break following Benjamin’s talk, the attendees had a unique opportunity to have one-to-one discussions with the LinkedIn-expert.

Success story

The greatest eye-opener during the first talk was a case example of Gentofte Municipality. Mikael Bierbaum, former Chief of HR at Gentofte Municipality presented this success story. By his side was Tina Jensen, Principal at FGU Storkøbenhavn Nord, who got the job that Mikael Bierbaum successfully advertised on LinkedIn.

An exclusive sneak-peek

Before the lunch break, which consisted of delicious sandwiches from Olivia Brasserie in Odense, HR-ON’s CEO, Ali E. Cevik, provided an exclusive look at HR-ON Recruit’s new design. The developers are working hard on this design to get it ready for release, Ali E. Cevik explained, while the developers sat coding in the adjoining room. 

At the end of the seminar, the attendees had the opportunity to try the new addition to HR-ON Staff, AppBuilder, on their own. Following this, many seemed excited to get started with the HR-system.

All in all, HR-ON’s new head office, situated on the 3rd floor of the business centre at Odense train station, was perfect for an event of that size. 

This successful seminar is the start of many more future events to be held by HR-ON. So watch this space!

Seminar with LinkedIn: Give the Passive Candidates a Nudge

Seminar with LinkedIn: Give the Passive Candidates a Nudge 1200 628 HR-ON

More than 80 percent of LinkedIn’s users are not actively looking for a new job. In other words they are passive candidates. This was one among many facts that Benjamin Runggaldier, LinkedIn’s Enterprise Relationship Manager, presented to the numerous attendees at HR-ON’s seminar on Wednesday. 

In Denmark, more than 2.5 million people have a profile on LinkedIn. Benjamin Runggaldier emphasized that despite the high proportion of passive candidates, 90% of Danes are open to the “right” job opportunity.

Inspiring example

With this information in mind, companies must be creative in order to ensure their job postings on LinkedIn catch the attention of potential candidates – both passive and active.

There are several methods of getting through to candidates, one of which was presented in the form of a case study of Gentofte Municipality. Gentofte Municipality was handling a challenging recruitment process last year. Mikael Bierbaum, former Chief of HR at Gentofte Municipality presented this example.

With an extra boost and with the help of LinkedIn Premium Jobs, they succeeded in attracting the attention of some strong candidates. One candidate was Tine Jensen, who got the job. The campaign resulted in 33 applications for the leadership position. Up until that point Gentofte Municipality had only received seven applications of varying quality. Read more here.

Tried and tested first hand

The Gentofte Municipality case was an eye-opener for many of the seminar attendees (roughly 80 people). HR-ON also presented the new function in their HR-system HR-ON Staff at the seminar. During the presentation, the attendees were asked to take out their phones and participate in a live quiz.

HR-ON also gave the attendees an introduction to the tool used to create the quiz. This tool can be used for many things, the sky’s the limit! The main proposed uses include onboarding and EDP-conversations, etc.

HR-ON’s seminar showed new ways to optimize recruitment using LinkedIn.

Future recruitment is extremely important to most companies. What do you do when fewer people look for job listings and more people find their next job through other channels? One of the answers is LinkedIn. And that is why there was a full house at HR-ON’s seminar  event with the world’s largest business network.

The reason for this seminar, is that LinkedIn has chosen HR-ON as the first company in Denmark for an official partnership. The collaboration is set to create a more effective match between companies and their future employees.

This partnership with LinkedIn allows HR-ON’s customers to put their vacancies directly on LinkedIn from their system. On LinkedIn, job listings are controlled by LinkedIn’s algorithms and displayed to selected candidates. For companies posting job vacancies, the collaboration means they will be able to target a specific audience. 

“It’s not about quantity, but about quality,” says LinkedIn’s responsible for the Nordic partner agreements, Mikaela Hedenros Ringart.  He has been working for LinkedIn for seven years and was in the recruitment business before then. 

She explains that it doesn’t benefit the company to get 80 applications for a position, if they are not the right applicants. That’s where LinkedIn’s algorithms come into play.

“Users can swipe jobs, a bit like Tinder, and LinkedIn is constantly learning from their behavior,” Mikaela Hedenros Ringart says.

The event was held at HR-ON’s main office, arguably one of the easiest locations to get to in Odense by train and car. The office is located in the train station and if arriving by car you can park pretty much right outside the door.

Today’s headline was ‘Optimize your recruitment and get more out of your LinkedIn job listings’. HR-ON had cleared the main office for the occasion and swapped the workstations with rows of black chairs. Half an hour before the event began, guests started pouring in. Three hours later, they left the premises – full of cake and inspiration for future recruiting!

Gentofte Municipality succeeds in collaborating with LinkedIn

Gentofte Municipality succeeds in collaborating with LinkedIn 1200 628 HR-ON

Gentofte Municipality invested in digital solutions and fixed their recruitment problem.

When the municipality of the town of Gentofte in Denmark was set with the task of recruiting a principal for the new preparatory school FGU Copenhagen North, it turned out to be a challenge. Recruitment was done across five municipalities, and one week before the application deadline, only a handful of applications had been received.

– Once we had launched the project we realised it was clearly a difficult position to fill – there were only a few applicants, says Mikael Bierbaum, HR Process Manager at Gentofte Municipality. Originally, he had expected around 10 qualified applicants, and he could see that that wasn’t going to happen.

– We decided to try a more proactive and targeted method that also reaches people who didn’t seem to be necessarily on the market. And then something started happening. We hadn’t expected such a significant reaction, he says.

Targeted campaign

Thanks to HR-ON’s direct integration with LinkedIn, they were able to deliver the solution in the form of a targeted LinkedIn Premium campaign. Gentofte Municipality decided to push the application deadline back slightly. The number of applications increased more than five fold. Mikael Bierbaum emphasizes that there were almost exclusively relevant applications:

– I wouldn’t have called it a success if the quality hadn’t been what we were looking for. Apart from one, all applications were within our expectations. These were serious applicants and we that meant we had a wider selection than anyone had expected.

Found the job on LinkedIn

The outcome of the process was that FGU Copenhagen North got the right candidate for the job. The new principal Tina Jensen first discovered the job when she saw the advertisement on LinkedIn.

– LinkedIn is one of the first things I open in the morning when I sit and drink my coffee, she says.

As head of a local school, she was already aware that the position would appear, and she had been keeping an eye out for the job ad. When she saw the it pop up on LinkedIn, she decided to apply for the principal job. And both her and Mikael Bierbaum are very gla d she did.

Finding the right candidate

Mikael Bierbaum has said that in the future he will certainly use LinkedIn Premium via the HR-ON platform for positions that he knows in advance will be a challenge to fill. He will also try to fill other positions where the candidates may not be LinkedIn’s core users, but where LinkedIn’s wide reach may nonetheless provide the right candidates. Another advantage of this solution, according to Mikael, is that it is much cheaper than the alternatives:

– The price is important when working in the municipal sector, where the recruitment budget is sometimes down to a few thousand danish krone. It is a huge asset that we have access to this technology, and we are very confident about what we can use it for. Mikael Bierbaum HR-Process Manager, Gentofte Municipality

First Danish partner agreement

LinkedIn Premium is part of the official partner agreement that HR-ON has signed with LinkedIn. HR-ON are the first system supplier in Denmark to be chosen by LinkedIn for this exclusive partnership. The agreement will ensure a more effective match between companies and their future employees.

Recruitment is changing. Previously, companies have sent traditional job adverts with the expectation that the candidates themselves would discover them. In the future, the ads themselves will target relevant candidates, says LinkedIn’s Manager of Nordic partner agreements, Mikaela Hedenros Ringart.

The agreement makes it possible for HR-ON’s customers to place their job ads directly on LinkedIn in the same workflow as other recruitment. On LinkedIn, algorithms keep track of job ads and automatically highlight them to relevant candidates. For growing companies, this collaboration with LinkedIn means that they will be able to target their jobs to specific people. And that is what Gentofte Municipality has benefited from, explains HR-ON’s Director Ali E. Cevik.

Effective recruitment channel

Through HR-ON, Ali E. Cevik has a deep insight into how to best advertise jobs and which methods work well. It all comes from the recruitment system’s statistics, which users also have access to, says Ali E. Cevik.

A new collaboration takes places, as LinkedIn chooses HR-on as a partner. This creates a more effective match between companies and their future employees.

LinkedIn is by far the world’s largest professional network. And it has one of the world’s most influential IT companies, Microsoft, backing it.

In the interest of delivering on their vision of creating economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. And succeeding in their mission of connecting the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful. LinkedIn has begun partnering with select businesses across the Nordics and other regions.

LinkedIn chose HR-ON, which is the first company in Denmark to be selected for the official partner program. This brings high hopes for what the partnership will bring to the business and its customers.

A win-win situation

“I am proud that LinkedIn has chosen us to be part of their official partner program. Because it is a testament to the great team, product, and customers we have,” says HR-ON CEO, Ali Cevik.

HR-ON provides a cloud-based IT system that automates the customer’s recruitment process. The partnership allows HR-ON’s customers to post their job listings directly to LinkedIn within the HR-ON recruitment system. Because it saves time, and allows customers to leverage the power of LinkedIn’s network to find the best candidates.

“Its a win-win for all parties. Because there is a lot of talk about companies having challenges finding qualified employees. Now, the world’s largest business network and all the insight they have into the global workforce will be right at our customer’s fingertips, from within our system. The collaboration is exciting, because it has the potential to change the way people find new employees in Denmark,’’ says Ali Cevik.

LinkedIn was purchased by Microsoft two years ago and has accumulated more than half a billion users worldwide, with more than two million of them located in Denmark.

The collaboration with LinkedIn takes place under our Danish brand name HR-Skyen. To learn more about what HR-ON can do for your business, enter your details here and we will be in touch.
