Companies that master the art and science of online recruiting will attract and keep the best people.

ORGANISATIONS are quickly finding their way into the booming Internet recruiting business. These days, leading employers are marketing jobs online, eager to capitalise on the Internet’s enormous power to spread information through informal networking.

In order to attract the right talent, these companies are putting digital collaboration at the heart of their hiring plans – keenly aware that in the next five to 10 years, the Gen Z will be hitting the workforce in large numbers.

Shay leads Alexander Mann Solutions’ global consulting services functions, a 100+ strong team of consultants with deep subject matter expertise in employer brand, assessment, diversity, career transition and graduate services.
