Klick wins Talent Acquisition Department of the Year award

Company credited with unconventional approach to attracting the industry’s best people

TORONTO--()--Klick Health today announced that it has been recognized for having the Talent Acquisition Department of the Year for a small company by ERE, a leading authority for human resources and recruiting professionals.

In particular, ERE pointed to Klick’s innovative experiential recruiting campaigns and the fact that Klick has dedicated Culture & Engagement team advocates, who guide job candidates through the interview process and help ensure a positive candidate experience.

"Klick is clearly doing things with its recruiting that some companies many times its size are not," said ERE Editor in Chief Todd Raphael.

“Rejecting traditional workplace practices and working hard to develop a culture that inoculates ourselves against the status quo has proven to be a huge distinguisher for Klick,” said CEO Leerom Segal. “We call it our ‘Relentless Pursuit of Awesome’ and our people all know that awesome doesn't stand still."

Segal said that what started out as a recruiting experiment has not only resulted in increased brand awareness and an unprecedented number of candidate submissions, but the quality of submissions has increased significantly. “We couldn’t be happier, especially as we continue to grow around 40 percent YoY and need more awesome talent.”

Klick is a pioneer of experiential recruiting, a unique, new practice that takes inspiration from consumer product marketing tactics to give potential candidates a sense of what it’s like to work at the company. Over the last year, Klick has used street teams, morning coffee, lunch and ice cream giveaways, a Twitter-based concierge service program, and high-profile events for industry professionals and their families to introduce them to some of the perks ‘Klicksters’ receive in a tangible, memorable manner.

During summer 2014, Klick’s experiential recruiting campaign sparked 220% growth in resume submissions, 500% more website traffic, and three times its average LinkedIn page views.
