Social Structures is Changing the Way Talent Acquisition is Approached

New applications including the Kevin Bacon Game, LinkedIn and Facebook are charting connections like never before. Instead of the idea of “six degrees of separation”, proposed in 1929, we are now seeing it be closer to “four degrees of separation”.

Charting internal employees’ outside business and their social relationships is about to paint a new picture of where your internal talent stands in comparison and is going to help identify relationships with other competitors. These graphs created by software tools are called “talent graphs” and are restructured the way talent acquisition divisions look for talent.

In order for successful companies to stay ahead of the talent curve, they will need to utilize these tools and in order for growing companies to jump to another level, they will also need to be utilizing these tools. With these tools, recruiters will see where candidates have worked, who has invested in whom and how everyone connects. With capitalizing on these tools, companies will be able to build a competitive advantage with the talent they bring in.

As companies analyze the networks over time and collect information to create a giant component, the more specific talent acquisition will be able to pin point the best professional for the specific role.
