Breaking News! Handle Recruitment recognised as one of the top 25 Most Socially Engaged staffing agencies

Posted on 5/10/2016 by Shamal Kumal


Are you sitting comfortably? We’ve got a rather exciting announcement to make. Handle Recruitment are the 16th most socially engaged medium-sized enterprise in the EMEA region.  This is HUGE and quite frankly we are thrilled!  This is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our 60 consultants and a recognition of our Social Recruiting abilities.

So what does this actually mean?

Handle Recruitment are reaching the talent that other agencies struggle to reach!

LinkedIn analysed 60,000 staffing agencies, 627,000 consultants and 450 million members on LinkedIn in the last 12 months. They measured the social reach, employee engagement, employment brand and content marketing power of these businesses by investigating thousands of data points, over the past year. The dedicated consultants and marketing team here at Handle have worked consistently across all of these metrics and together have resulted in us reaching the positioning we have.

So what did we actually do to get here?

Engaged with our followers on LinkedIn

Let’s face it, LinkedIn is a social platform and we like to be social! We’re not a fan of jargon and like to be as human as possible, so we have real conversations with real people that create real ongoing relationships.  We try to have these as often as possible and be as transparent as we can with our network.

Carefully spread the Handle brand messaging far and wide

We know that the Handle brand would not have the reach it does if it wasn’t for our consultants shouting about it. We value everyone’s individuality and opinions.  Each of our consultants are encouraged to develop their own social presence that compliments the Handle brand so our messaging is managed carefully, is consistent and reaches out to a really wide network.  There’s a lot of hard work involved, so we make sure we have time for the fun stuff too!

Content, content, content!

We’re passionate about delivering content to a level where it’s so engaging you can’t help but read it! We pride ourselves on having consultants that are genuinely interested in the industry sectors we work with. We aim to inspire, enlighten and sometimes amuse you with topical jargon-free content!

A huge congratulations to all of our team!
