Changing landscape of hiring: LinkedIn reveals top social recruiters in India


The company just released the list of recruiters in India who lead in terms of smart hiring.


Technology has made the world a smaller place and people more connected than ever. Leveraging this power of connecting with people in smarter and better ways, recruiters have taken to the social professional route to find the best talent from an easily accessible large pool.

In that, some recruiters are consciously and innovatively engaging with their networks to establish employer brands while hiring quality talent. Acknowledging such smart social recruiters, LinkedIn just released the list of recruiters in India who have been ahead of the curve when it comes to hiring smartly.

From helping professionals discover and explore their dream jobs to fuelling business growth, these recruiters continue to reimagine possibilities. This year, LinkedIn celebrates the spirit of ‘possibilities’ with recruiters, who make dreams possible and connect the dots in the world of networking.

The top social recruiters’ list of 2017 includes professionals from startups, Internet businesses, and technology companies. These leading recruiters are ranked based on their effectiveness in attracting and hiring quality talent using LinkedIn. Manish Chandra Gupta and Abhinav Sharma from Orange Business Services, Radhika Chandan from VMware Inc.; Priyanka Rishi from McKinsey & Company; and Tripti Pathak Tripathi from Genpact appear as the best five amongst the top 40 recruiters.

Talking of social recruiting, Irfan Abdulla, director-talent solutions, LinkedIn India says, “The job market today has transformed into a candidate’s marketplace, wherein applicants choose their employers, as opposed to recruiters choosing them. Social platforms have played a significant role in bringing about this transformation by giving candidates the luxury of accessing information about companies, their culture and opportunities at their fingertips.”

Abdulla shares that data from LinkedIn reconfirms this, as 32 per cent Indian professionals land a new job through social professional networks. “Understanding this shift, organisations are restructuring their recruiting teams to work on building relationships with potential candidates and engaging with them on relevant platforms. This move is creating an ecosystem where recruiters, organisations and job seekers interact for individual, professional, and business growth,” he adds.

The list was compiled on the basis of each recruiter’s LinkedIn Recruiter Index (LRI), for the period starting January 2016 to December 2016. Additionally, engagement level on the platform was also taken into consideration. The list acknowledges multiple recruiters from each organisation, recognising every recruiter’s efforts and contributions.
