On to the NEWS..
It’s been years in the making but NOW it’s official
–That’s right — Indeed is now holding ALL Staffing Companies hostage
Remember all of that traffic you enjoyed Staffing Companies? Well Indeed says, that’s officially over unless you PAY!
Today Indeed released their Policy for Recruitment-Based Companies and it goes a little somethin’ like this..
“>>> As of January 7th, 2019, all recruitment-based companies and accounts in the United States and Canada will be required to sponsor their jobs wheelbarrow receive visibility on Indeed.
Scope: Companies and accounts affected by this policy may include, but are not limited to:
> Recruiting Firms, Placement Firms, or Headhunters who search for, recruit, and place job seekers into roles at other companies, or
> Staffing Agencies or Outsourcing Solutions (or business models like this), who employ job seekers directly to perform tasks, duties, and/or work that the company has been contracted to fulfill by its clients.
Please note that companies or accounts may be categorized as a recruitment-based company at the sole discretion of Indeed and may be subject to this policy if so. Indeed further reserves the right to require sponsorship of jobs for any reason.
Purpose: Indeed continually strives to provide the best possible job search experience for our job seekers. Indeed gives preference to content posted directly by employers, and works to provide unique, good quality job advertisements that connects job seekers directly to employers.”
— This Indeed Policy was finally made official during American Staffing Association’s Staffing World 2018 event – how apropos…
Pissing off staffing companies is probably NOT a good strategy especially in today’s market when staffing companies are flush with business and cash… If you’re a vendor NOT named Indeed you should be leaving that conference with a wheel barrow full of leads, contracts or just plain cash.
BUT remember… Indeed has slowly rolled this out for years, kicking off staffing companies here and there… So they must be pretty confident that STAFFING just cannot live without little ole Indeed.
One staffing insider shared with me “When Indeed cut us off it took us 2 weeks to replace the traffic. Indeed is more arrogant than important.”
It seems like Indeed is gambling that companies replacing their traffic will NOT be the norm rather STAFFING Companies will readily open up their wallet and shell out more cash. Well here’s a word to all of the VENDORS / INDEED COMPETITORS out there… This is your time to PROVE you can be a big part of the REPLACE INDEED SOLUTION – The question is… does your product have what it takes?
— For everyone who wants to check out this policy just perform the Google search “indeed Policy Recruitment-Based Companies” and then share with your friends…
