For recruiters and HR professionals, acquiring top talent and hiring the perfect fit are their ultimate goals. So, it’s important to leverage communication through various platforms and channels where you can engage with potential hires. SMS is an excellent tool to add to your recruitment and hiring strategy. Boasting an impressive 90-second response rate (compare to email; 90-minutes) it’s easy to see why integrating SMS into your business is so successful.
Why SMS is so effective for recruiting?
With almost as many handsets in circulation as there are people on earth, SMS is perhaps the most widely accepted form of communication available. 98% of text messages are read by their intended recipient with 3 minutes of delivery. The immediacy and rate of successful delivery make it more effective for reminders, alerts, and notifications than email.
