Work4 Launches a New Service Helping Companies Source Qualified Candidates

CQA enables companies to receive only qualified applications

Work4, the global leader in Facebook recruitment, has just announced the launch of its new service CQA (Certified Quality Applicant), designed to help companies measure and increase their candidate’s qualification level. Leading companies in the Banking and Insurance industries have already praised the service: CQA has helped them increase their candidate qualification by 48% when recruiting customer support and financial advisors.  

“Digitizing the employment market has enabled organizations to boost their visibility, simplify their end-to-end application process, and to reduce a significant portion of their recruiting costs. It has caused a new influx of applications recruiters have to work on, since job postings are accessible to a wider pool of candidates.” attests Etienne Dargnies, CEO at Work4.

A recent source from Glassdoor testifies: there has been a dramatic increase in the number of applications sent per job opportunity in 2017 - an average of 250 applications per job.

Work4’s new service aims at making the recruitment marketing process flow more fluidly, notably by accelerating the recruitment process and allowing recruiters to work only on qualified applicants. CQA makes it possible with its unique technology combining Facebook’s audience targeting, and an optimized applicant process.

CQA (Certified Quality Applicant): How does it work?

In practical terms, audience targeting enables recruiters to display their job opportunities only to candidates matching their criteria, which optimizes their budget and their employer brand.  When candidates click on the ad they are redirected to an apply form, mostly composed of yes/no questions, and addressing the necessary qualifying criteria. The forms are then processed by Work4’s sorting algorithm which identifies pre-qualified applications and sends them to a designated recruiter who now has enough time to focus on the qualitative aspect of the hiring process.

Guillaume Laguette, Marketing Director at Work4, concludes: “It is an absolute necessity for companies to keep innovating in order to outpace competition, and to recruit top talent as efficiently as possible. Today, this is a service only offered by staffing companies and it is far too expensive to scale for the volume of applies.”
